“MEN OF GOD, MEN OF DEATH”
The Christians tells a tangle vine of a tale complete with prickly thorns and pretty flowers and with roots deep in Biblical muck and mire. Shep Christian and Wally Paul are two lost souls who are trying to find redemption in Great Depression-era America by selling Bibles door-to-door, but t heir way of doling out God’s saving grace is a perverted as is Satan’s brand of salvation, leaving a string of dead bodies across the American Midwest. - Strong Elixir
“DEPRESSION ERA KILLERS”
Wally Paul and Shep are two men on a mission from God. The fact that they are sociopathic killers doing God’s work in a sick and violent manner has no meaning for them; they are not haunted by guilt, as they don’t view their actions as a crime–at least not until Shep begins to question his faith. The Christians frequently crosses into black comic territory to produce a story that’s weirdly funny, startlingly violent and steeped in sadness. – Armchair Reader
Set during the Great Depression, The Christians tells the serio-comic story of two psychopathic Bible salesmen who murder in the name of God. Hot on their trail is a former Texas Ranger and US Bureau of Investigation (pre-FBI) agent, John Stoddard Pyle, a man who knows no mercy and who does not know exactly who he is chasing as there is no apparent motive and virtually no clues. It encompasses themes as ancient as the Bible and as bloodily contemporary as this morning’s headlines.
