A Talking Baby Goat

Up until now I have been shamefully uninterested in reading the Apocrypha. Curious, but not curious enough to do anything about it. But now! Remember when I told you that my friend Tom Bissell was going to visit the graves of all twelve apostles and write a book about it? Well, he did it. And in one paragraph he catalogs some of the characters we'll meet in the Apocrypha: "fish resurrected from the dead, sentient dogs... unusually loquacious demons... a talking baby goat and leopard, who adorably take Communion together... of all things, a werewolf."
