Review

Sick, Disgusting, Vile...and Genius,
He may be one of the sickest, most twisted writers writing today, but there's a mad brilliance to his work. Reading his texts is like growing wiser ...
--Eric Mays "Bizarro Author of "Naked Metam...

Sick Sick sick my kind of book!
Filled with sex and violence that'll keep you turning the pages. With a vampire feasting on an embryo and many other dreadful acts you have to check out.
----Kipp Poe Speicher "Kipp Poe Speicher" (Canton, Ohio)

Step Aside, Passion Of The Christ!
Rage does not down play the evils of today, and he re-enforces the fact that there is no good without evil (and vice-versa) in this thrilling tale. ----A. A. A. (Illinois, U.S.A.)

Brutally Good
Compound street violence and mega-violence of the most extreme horror variety and you get a story that any horror fan would eat up. I highly recommend it. ----W. D. Hanson "AKA Ichorous" (Clarksburg, MD USA)

vivid, explicit, inventive and engrossing...with fangs on it!
Rage blatantly gawks at the darker side of our modern world and draws biblical parallels, using vampires. He mixes respectable dark poetic prose. ----D. Gorman "Crystalline Structure Moon"

I bought this book based on the fantastic reviews; but was soon very disappointed in the interpretation of the crucifiction.
It is mostly black ghetto talk about shorties and niggas and it lost me and was not what I was expecting. I couldn't connect with the characters. I found that the author was jumping about with dialogue and people and it was hard to follow who was saying what and lost it's appeal for me.
I didn't feel there was any fluidity of events as it seemed all over the map.
I didn't connect with anything, or any character particularly the character portraying Christ!
I skimmed the last half of the book since I knew the ending of course, but was VERY,VERY tired of reading about niggas and 9mm.
I see enough of it on the daily news and this seemed more of the same.

Format: Paperback
This brilliant alteration of biblical accounts into a modernized tale of drugs, death and deception is not for the easily offended or faint of heart. With graphic scenes of violence, sex and torture Steven Rage has given us a view of Christ's final days had he lived in our modern world. His unique cadence and elaborate descriptions vividly animates every aspect of his writing. Whether offended or captivated, whoever reads this book will not soon forget it.

This is a highly imaginative and entertaining story, and it would most certainly make a fascinating, earth shattering film!!! I think that if Pilate: A Brutal Bible Tale was made into a movie (or movies, preferably), we would see Mel Gibson crying, humbled, and worshiping at the feet of the almighty Reverend Steven Rage! Any film makers out there would easily stand to make a fortune working with Reverend Rage and putting his visions on film! This brilliant and inventive book is about good, evil, redemption, punishment, salvation, and the second coming of Christ (with disciples, Herod, and of course Pilate) set in modern times. Reverend Steven Rage's gripping portrayal of good and evil forces the reader to see both sides with accurate and equal clarity. Unlike most stories based on Christianity, Pilate: A Brutal Bible Tale urges the reader to witness the evils and horrors in our world uncensored. The good Reverend Rage does not down play the evils of today, and he re-enforces the fact that there is no good without evil (and vice-versa) in this thrilling tale. Reading this book is maximum enjoyment from the very first page right on through to the last, and it will definitely make you hungry for more of Reverend Rage's written gold! Pilate: A Brutal Bible Tale is so enthralling from beginning to end, that it's difficult for me to say what I liked best about it, because there is not one single thing that I disliked about it! I think that what really grabbed me was Reverend Rage's description of the Christ and the environment that She was born and raised in. Kudos to Reverend Rage for placing Her exactly where She would be needed the most! Another thing that tickled my fancy about the Christ in this story was that She did not condemn marijuana as a dangerous drug.Read more ›

7 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Phillip Habib on March 13, 2008
Format: Paperback
Reading the first couple of chapters, I told The Wife, "This is absolutely the most violent thing I've ever read!" Reading more, the violence continued unabated but it all fit in. This wasn't just savagery for the sake of being shocking. Once you get over the initial impact, the story is compelling and extremely well written. Between work, The Wife, and The Boy, I'm kept pretty busy so I had to hide out in the bathroom to finish the book.

My advice to you: sneak this book and some snacks and drinks into your private hiding place (or bathroom) and settle down for a good read.

This story illuminates in our modern world one of the most powerful stories ever told. Rage is a natural story teller and with his compelling and clear voice, he spins imagery so detailed and brutal that it grips the heart, mind, soul and body at once. Then, in the moment of pain and discomfort the light and courage of Christ shines on the darkest part of humanity. If you liked the Passion of Christ or any other painful tales of horror, you will love Steven Rage.

Downloaded and read PILATE. I thought it was excellent. Being brought up Catholic, I was very familiar with "the source material". In its own right that is a very powerful story. Compound that with street violence and mega-violence of the most extreme horror variety and you get a story that any horror fan would eat up. I highly recommend it.

Overall, I found this to be a great, rather grizzly book with a fine grasp of horror, modern culture and even a certain reverence. Rage blatantly gawks at the darker side of our modern world and draws certain biblical parallels...using vampires. He adeptly mixes our current youth venacular with graphic, brutal horror imagery, a respectable dark poetic prose and a decisive intelligence. This is an author I'd like to see more of. The violence, and sex references are raw, explicit and he just holds nothing back. His grasp of the underside of our culture and the drug trade filter through in a gritty, unapologetic in-your-face prose. But he's not afraid to display an impressively morbid poetic side. The plot is well-thought-out. It is a grimly well paced thrill ride of horror and suspense. You just have to keep turning pages to see what happens next. His parallels to the modern story and the biblical text of the last days of Jesus are inventive and inspired, in a grotesque deformed sort of way. There is material here that I'm sure would cause religious conservatives to say, "There is blasphemy here that would make Jesus roll over in his grave (you know, if he hadn't already risen from the dead)!" Yet, there is a strong, revery that shows a certain connection to faith. Personally as an agnostic, I would have enjoyed the book more if Rage had avoided the religious connections and just stuck with a straight vampire story. But that's just my personal opinion. There is a religious connection that comes together as the book rolls along, but it is still a graphic, nasty horror tale with vampires, drug lords and even a little sex. Rage's command of story and pacing shows a lot of promise for the future.Read more ›

This book was amazing!!! You can read it as a simple vampire novel, which I love, or if you have ANY knowledge of the bible stories you can peel away the many layers to the story of the betrayal of Christ, told long ago. This book takes the real story of Pontius Pilate and puts in a graphic,... Read More
