Flu at the Zoo: And Other Silly Stories
On a beautiful May afternoon in 1965, Millie, a twenty-four-year-old wife and mother, committed suicide for reasons not known and not probed. Denial. Silence. But her inquisitive five-year-old-son, Jo-Jo, saw too much.
Now a middle-aged adult, Joe has long since forgotten a mother who "punched out" on life and on him. Life's quest for happiness has molded Joe into a self-proclaimed materialist, while life's tragedies have deteriorated what little faith he had, leaving behind a bitter godless man, losing purpose.
In a moment of despair, Joe challenges God to prove His existence. This time however, this hardened man expects silence, thus validating his belief that God doesn't exist instead strange things start to happen.
It's as if God accepts the challenge, recruiting a distinguished guest list of angelic proportions to combine forces for some high-spirited love, laughter and transformation. But, can one of these teachers be Joe's suicidal mother? Isn't she damned to Hell forever for taking her own life? And why did she commit suicide?
From eternity into time, "God and Company" perseveres to rebuild Joe's faith in God, life, afterlife and Their laws. But there's tremendous conflict and controversy surrounding his traditional Christian upbringing that requires resolution.
Experience the dogged determination of this "lost soul" on his journey to discover the truth, so help him God.
