 About the Book 

You just watched the 6 oclock news. Now ask yourself, When is God going to throw in the towel? God came close once before: The Flood of Genesis. And John, in the last book of the Bible, wrote the newscast for the Armageddon. So where do we standMoreYou just watched the 6 oclock news. Now ask yourself, When is God going to throw in the towel? God came close once before: The Flood of Genesis. And John, in the last book of the Bible, wrote the newscast for the Armageddon. So where do we stand right now? Steve Simon doesnt presume to know. After all, hes an agnostic. But he does choose to believe in God. However, hes losing his faith in man. On the other hand, he hasnt lost his sense of humor and he has a cat to guide him through the hard times. Makes sense.The Rainbreaker is a fable that attacks some tough moral issues with a lot of good-natured fun. Lest you think that the author is poking fun at God, rest assured. God always comes out on top. Its stupid human tricks (such as the failure of nearly all human institutions) that convince Steve Simon that God will not destroy the world but simply replace humans with animals. Or something like that. Adults whove enjoyed Marley & Me and the satire of Amrose Bierce, P.J. ORourke, and Chris Buckley will laugh out loud at this genre-bender with a message.
