Religion is a controversial business in the Discworld. Everyone has their own opinion, and indeed their own gods - who come in all shapes and sizes. In such a competitive environment, there is a pressing need to make one's presence felt. And it's certainly not remotely helpful to be reduced to be appearing in the form of a tortoise, a manifestation far below god-like status in anyone's book. In such instances, you need an acolyte, and fast - preferably one who won't ask too many questions.

"Deftly weaves themes of forgiveness, belief, and spiritual regeneration....While other writers gnaw at violence, sexuality, and rootless despair." (The Times)
Time team comes to mind when I hear Tony, and Stephen does a much better 'Death'. character.
I love this book - I honestly believe this is one of the best this series. Very interesting look into how are we creating believes. And what can happened even to the best intentions. If you're not comfortable about philosophy and religion but would like to find out more - this book is a great start.
