The gods and goddesses of scripture return to Earth during an event known as the Parousia, but not just the gods of any one religion; gods of every religion. More than that, though, the Parousia doesn’t limit itself just to religions, but to things people do religiously.
Jesus walks the earth alongside gods of football, of soccer, and of bowling. There’s a god of money, and, seemingly paradoxically, a god of Atheism.
The Deity Beat
Phineas Sealby is a deity beat reporter for the Atlanta Record, keeping tabs on the doings of all these ten thousand-ish gods. Over time the immortals settle into a niche more or less like celebrities.
There’s just one problem: a god is missing. Some call him Lucifer, some call him the Lord of Lies, but he has never surfaced. Events in Phineas’s life send him on a quest through Hell itself to find and obtain an interview from the missing god Satan.
Along the way he has trouble at work, confronts alcoholism with ineptitude, and screws his love life up completely.
Can Phineas possibly figure this mess out? Will he be chucked into a lake of fire like so much metal slag? We’re going to find out in Ten Thousand Gods.
