Anne Rice Shrugs off the Occult for Christ

Anne Rice has not only discovered a new faith in Christ and embraced Christianity, she has also written a novel based on the life of Jesus as a 7 year old aware of his Godly connection. What a transformation! Fans of Lestat and her Vampire Chronicles series will be upset, I'm sure, as she's given up writing anything that doesn't "please The Lord".

Her new novel, Christ the Lord, Out of Egypt reflects immense historical research and time spent studying the faith as well. Should be a great read! It's out November 1st, and I've already pre-ordered mine!

I can't get my head around this one. No Way! I am bewildered.

Wow! I guess to me it doesn't seem like a big jump - I mean, Memnoch the Devil was definately a novel all about questioning faith and I came out the other side with my beliefs even stronger. This is going to be very, very interesting. And - Good For Anne!

Please tell us what you think of the novel. I would be very interested in getting your take on it.

That is really something awesome. If even a small fraction of her fans give this book a chance...well, just wow.

Love your blog, btw. :)

She may lose alot of fans, and then gain alot more. I for one would like to read this book. Partly to see if she is going to get it right, or make a mockery of it. Think of all the people in the bible who changed their ways.

God is good.

I didn't know she had become a Christian, but in college I read all the Lestat books and one set in Egypt. An article I read last year noted that she had groupies outside her Garden District (NOLA) home at all times. She was the devil's Oprah, and I think she'll definitely have an impact on the type of people attracted to her work.

I tried to read one of her books, but it was just too, I don't know, something. Same reason I can't read Koontz, I guess.
I am happy for her, though. Just goes to show that God can work into anyone's heart.

Oooh, I have been reading that she has been commenting on occasion on blogs that have posted about her book.

I look forward to it, too.

Love the new do, too, TB :D
