Bible Fanfic

 Of all the things to write fanfic about ... there is now Bible fanfic.  I stumbled across "A Matter of Pride" and was just boggled.  
Can we even call this fanfic?  The Bible is, after all, historically an anthology, despite Christian tenet of one Author.  So writing alternate Bible stuff is more like ... writing Mythos or Cycle stuff.  Arthurian, Robin Hood, Cthulhu, etc.  Or from a historical perspective, it might be considered alternate-history, if one considers the Bible to be historic or at least historically inspired.  

From a spiritual perspective ... isn't this sort of blasphemous?  I mean Christians usually take the Bible a little too literally, and are not keen on people questioning it.  Which is not to say that writing this stuff is actually wrong, or badly written.  I think it's cool to explore.  It's just not what I'm used to seeing in the context of this religion.

Yeah.  My brain is still kinda looking around for flying pigs or something.
