Publisher's Summary

The last survivors of humanity have just been deposited on Pandora, a horrific, poisonous planet rife with deadly nerve-runners, hooded dashers, airborne jellyfish, and intelligent kelp. The determined colonists attempt to establish a bridgehead on the deadly, inhospitable planet, but more trouble arises. Their sentient ship - backed up by an impressive array of armaments - has decided it is God and is insisting the colonists find appropriate ways to worship it.
In an attempt to help the people pass its test, Ship awakens chaplain-psychiatrist Raja Flattery from hibernation. Either the humans pass the test - or the human race could be destroyed.

Frank herbert never dissapoints

Would you consider the audio edition of The Jesus Incident to be better than the print version?

They complement each other. It is a new experience to be able to listen to a well loved and many times read book.


Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes. Very good performance.


Any additional comments?

Intelligent science fiction. I wouldn't be surprised if this was Cameron's inspiration for his film Avatar. However this is a far superior story.
