The Boy Without a Soul
K Duncan Deaton, MD, author
The Boy Without a Soul is a thought-provoking novel about the rude confrontation between biblical inerrancy and the strange supernatural beliefs of some Christians, with science and modern morality. Because there is no one fundamentalist position, K Duncan Deaton creates a hybrid sect named the Roman Baptists. The story begins with an atheist oncologist Tom Tanner whose compassion confronts the church’s fundamentalist dogma. It continues with the possibility of cloning Jesus from the communion service’s transubstantiated flesh and blood. And the story ends, as it must, with the enactment of the perfect justice of God as described in the inerrant Bible.
