Welcome to the War Between the Christians and the Atheists
In the coming war between the Christians and the atheists, one side has the numbers, but the other side has the brains. And who wins and who loses just might be determined by former Superstar-Televangelist, now Ex-Christian Suzze Osmond.
Televangelist heads are exploding as Suzze and the Old Man hit the road on their way to … who knows where? Along the way, they meet Laurence Gelb, PhD, “the smartest man in the world,” Pastor Steve, the voice of a new generation of fundamentalist belief and his erstwhile companion Pudge, and last but not least, the J-Man himself, the resurrected eJesus.
Who is causing the demise of these so-called men of the cloth? Could it be, Heaven forbid, The Big Guy himself?
Called “Funny. Perverse. Magical.” Move Over Jesus is required reading for any True Believer who can see the humor in the world around us and want to know what the other side really thinks. Hint: the Good Guys win.

Not for Scaredy-Cat Christians Christian M 18-39
Quirky. Crazy. Weird. True.Suzze Osmond Ex-Christian reads like a TV series which I think the writers wanted since they call it Season One and the chapters are described as scenes. It is fast paced, witty and completely off the wall so it takes a few chapters to get in to it. But it’s a heck of a ride, with a strong female protagonist, and thoroughly enjoyable. Be forewarned, the first episode ends with a cliffhanger, TV style and if you’re a hard-core Christian you might want to be careful. I liked it a lot. Atheist M 18-39
Love the humor, love the cleverness, love the developing story, love the War on Christianity theme. Christian F 18-39
A Great Rollicking Adventure for Christians with an Open Mind .. a funny fast paced story with a female Christian hero. When was the last time you saw that? Christian M 18-39
It gets more magical with every chapter. . . . takes magical realism as a genre and expresses Christianity in the same terms. Atheist F 39-60
Suzze is horrible, There is a War on Christians and it is real, not funny. Christian F 60+
As a Christian, I’m tired of my faith being challenged . . . all churches suffer from charlatans and liars and cheats ...don’t want to read about it. Christian M 60+
Failed female evangelist finds God and doesn’t like what she sees. Atheist 40-60
At its core, Suzze is a woman’s adventure, a saga about religious persecution and self-discovery told with wit, satire and dark humor. It is a story for Christians, or a story for atheists. Why not both? I’m a cynic so it works for me either way. Jewish, sort of M 18-39
