Not only does the story crucially involve Jesus Christ, or at least the DNA-laden cross upon which he was crucified. But for the e-book version, which has just been released, author Senese is promising to donate all profits to the International Child Abduction Research and Enlightenment Foundation (a.k.a. I C.A.R.E).
On his personal website, Senese explains the genesis for Cloning Christ:
The book was conceptualized during the time I spent at New York’s ‘Ground Zero.’ During one particular night, I lost my faith in God and did not understand how HE could and would allow for such a disaster to occur. While spending the evening inside the Trinity Church, essentially speaking my anger-filled mind at God, I soon realized that HE did not abandon us. And so, at sometime in the middle of the night and into the early part of the morning, I wrote a very detailed outline and synopsis of Cloning Christ.
