The Basilica of the Swinging Dicks is Rev. Dr. Jeff Hood's first extended work of fiction. The novella follows the journey of a remarkable character named Christian and the crazy church he creates. From Mississippi to Texas, this is a wild tale of chasing Jesus in the South. Though any resemblance to reality is purely coincidental, I'm sure many will find the people and places of these pages very familiar.
The Rev. Dr. Jeff Hood is a Baptist pastor, theologian & activist presently living & working in North Texas. A consistent writer, Dr. Hood is the author of multiple books, including The Queer: An Interaction with the Gospel of John, The Queering of an American Evangelical, The Sociopathic Jesus, The Year of the Queer, Jesus on Death Row, Frances, Last Words from Texas, The Courage to Be Queer & The Rearing of American Evangelical.
