Essay Topics

Essay Topic 1

Ineffable:

Everything in this story goes to an afterlife when it dies. That includes people, furniture and court sessions. Even our cells go to their own afterlife when we die.

How do you think this is possible? Does this mean that everything has a soul? An energy? A life on earth? Why do you think the way you do?

Essay Topic 2

Apostasy:

In this story God is a woman who wishes to provide those entering the afterlife with the Book of Truth, a book that reveals all the answers they have been looking for. She forces any apostates to leave Heaven out of fear that they will impart people with this knowledge before she can. This God seems fairly vain and self-serving. Why do you think that is? Do you think it is significant that the author made this god a woman? Why or why not?

Essay Topic 3

Reins:

This afterlife is run by committee. God used to run it, but began to lose control to man and the angels. After God's Heaven was taken from him he began to identify with men like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Mahatma Gandhi.

1) Why does God feel his vision of Heaven was stolen from him?

2) What might happen to God's vision, or anyone's vision, if it is taken over by other people?

3) Who are King and Gandhi? Why does God relate to them?
