I know what you want.  You want a story that wont surprise you.  That will confirm what you already know.  That wont make you see higher or further or differently. You want a flat story.  An immobile story.  You want dry, yeastless factuality.

Pi in A Life of Pi, page 336

Christ is the Master; the Scriptures are only the servant.  The true way to test all the Books is to see whether they work the will of Christ or not.  No Book which does not preach Christ can be apostolic, though Peter or Paul were its author.  And no Book which does preach Christ can fail to be apostolic, although Judas, Ananias, Pilate, or Herod were its author.

... Martin Luther (1483-1546)
