2013 Short Story 20

20. THE REVEALED TRUTH by Mike Resnick, from Dark Faith Invocations.  Stop me if you've heard this one: A priest, a minister and a rabbi walk into an intensive care unit.  Mike Resnick manages to find the right amount of humor in the situation of three small-town religious leaders confronted with a woman who has come back from the dead with a very obvious plan to reveal which of the three religions is actually true and which two completely false. The first person narrative, from the view of the Baptist Minister, keeps a nice folksy tone that fits what Resnick seems to be trying to do. Just how far do we go to preserve our beliefs when an outside force threatens to turn the world upside down? Fans of the darkly comic will enjoy this story.
