This book shows Biblical heroes from Adam and Eve through the Old Testament into the New, with a host of individuals and angels both real and imaginary slipped in among them.
Along with its serious side, it has a good deal of fun, with a fanciful look at heaven, who gets in, and what life is like after Peter welcomes them. Peter chews tobacco, but he has no place to spit because God won’t let him have a spittoon. Two Mandan Indians show up at the gate. They’re chewing Red Man and each has a spittoon. Peter borrows one and hides it behind a pot of petunias, but he doesn’t tell God. Now he can spit when he leans over and pretends he’s smelling the petunias
The author has made every effort to show the heroes in their glory as well as when they commit their sins and atrocious crimes. He does not believe we should ignore them or explain them away and read the Bible with rose-colored glasses. He believes that if it’s a book of truth, then we should face the truth of what it shows.
