Verhoeven vs. Rice

>> It’s odd to think that people like Paul “Basic Instinct” Verhoeven and Anne “Queen of the Damned” Rice put such efforts into writing about the life of Christ – and odder still to find that there is such a wide gap in truth between the two.  Verhoeven’s trashy take seems more suitable for a Showtime miniseries, while Rice has created one of the most awesome acts of literary worship seen since the days of Pilgrim’s Progress.  There is nothing new under the sun, but that truth in no way eliminates the unexpected.
