Description - Small Gods by Terry Pratchett
The thirteenth Discworld novel.
'Deftly weaves themes of forgiveness, belief and spiritual regeneration' The Times
The Discworld is very much like our own - if our own were to consist of a flat planet balanced on the back of four elephants which stand on the back of a giant turtle, that is . . .
'Just because you can't explain it, doesn't mean it's a miracle.'
In the beginning was the Word. And the Word was- 'Hey, you!' This is the Discworld, after all, and religion is a controversial business.
Everyone has their own opinion, and indeed their own gods, of every shape and size, and all elbowing for space at the top. In such a competitive environment, shape and size can be pretty crucial to make one's presence felt.
So it's certainly not helpful to be reduced to appearing in the form of a tortoise, a manifestation far below god-like status in anyone's book.
In such instances, you need an acolyte, and fast- for the Great God Om, Brutha the novice is the Chosen One - or at least the only One available. He wants peace and justice and brotherly love. He also wants the Inquisition to stop torturing him now, please . . .
The Discworld novels can be read in any order but Small Gods is a standalone novel.
