Description
By using Jesus, or Carpenter as Sinclair calls him, as a literary figure, Sinclair exposes the new and upcoming culture of 1920's Southern California, namely Hollywood. The story takes place in the fictional city of Western City, and begins with a man named Billy being is attacked by a mob outside of a theater after watching a German film. Billy then stumbles into a church and is visited by Carpenter, a.k.a. Jesus, who walks out of a stained glass window. Carpenter is shocked and appalled by the upper-class culture. The story then roughly follows the biblical account of the Ministry of Jesus Christ. In the end, Carpenter decides to escape the corroded culture by jumping back into the stained glass window from whence he came.
