Heaven and Hell by Mara Faustino
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Heaven and Hell is a deliciously pithy assortment of highbrow gospel and lowbrow trivia dedicated to our eternal struggle between virtue and wickedness, all compiled in one volume. In Hell, find lists of famous sinners (and the various morbid and gruesome means of their demise), the Seven Deadly Sins, Dante's rings of Hell, a brief, violent history of the Hell's Angels motorcycle gang, and what the Devil is called in different cultures. In Heaven, discover preaching diagrams, a short chronology of angels, fantastic miracles-including trees that look like crosses, oil spills in the likeness of Jesus, and rust stains like angels, etc.-and who found them, and the ways to become a saint (including the new cybersaint option that costs only $50.) Finally, Heaven and Hell come together in descriptions of what the afterlife looks like in various religions, recipes for angel food cake and devil's food cake, and a look at the legendary Saints and Sinners Balls in Australia.
