Benz masterfully uses setting to foreshadow ironies. The judge assigning people to hell is Haskewell.
To love all men through God. To love as God loves. The story, though, is not a simple revenge tale, satisfying as that would be.

Thus, out of a hell of seventeenth-century despair, Benz sounds one of the most beautiful notes of hope that I have heard in recent fiction.

God's word is alive; it strikes to the heart. It pierces more surely than a two-edged sword.
At college, where he shortens his name to Mark, he starts a Bible study that grows rapidly from forty to sixty-eight people. Feeling that the group is too complacent, Mark insists they meet twice a week, which slims their numbers a bit. This path gets even narrower until a student reporter publishes an investigative report, calling the group a cult, resulting in a confrontation between Mark and the dean of students.

In doing so, however, he has shut out the voice of God, or at least the voices of wisdom in his life, mistaking them for the devil. Chanelle Benz, in another flawlessly crafted period piece, ruptures a different kind of Christian echo chamber: the Deep South of the nineteenth century.

Also, many tattoo artists do not inform their clients of possible infection from the needle or the ink.
Tattoos can cause many chronic skin disorders such as sarcoid, keloid scarring, allergic dermatitis, photosensitivity reactions, psoriasis, and tumors. Finally, the Bible gives a real warning about this sort of procedure Psm. Tattoos and the Bible. We know already what Lev. What about the New? I think not!

Those who get tattoos while in a backslidden state will forever have to live with them. Even those who flock to get laser surgery in an attempt to remove the tattoos will have to go through a lot of expensive and painful procedures, and yet the tattoo will never be totally removed and will just look ugly.
