Conversations between God and Satan
Held at the Crescent Moon Coffee House in Lincoln, Nebraska, USA, Earth, Milky Way
John Janovy Jr., Mr. John Janovy Jr.
Ms. Wendy Jane Bantam
CONVERSATIONS addresses what God calls The Ultimate Question, namely, why people throughout the universe are killing one another in His name. God arrives on Earth as a male pre-med college student from South Dakota; Satan arrives as a feisty female English major and struggling writer with a love for high calorie cookies, cigarettes, and vodka. They spend two weeks, an hour a day, at The Crescent Moon addressing a wide range of problems that people, and people-like animals, but eventually deal with the issue of wholesale slaughter in the name of God. After reading CONVERSATIONS, you will never look at the sky, or your local church, in the same way again.
