Testament - Douglas Rushkoff

I read vol 1-3 (actually I read the first one twice) and it is a fascinating idea mixing Biblical stories with reinterpretations of them in a futuristic setting, all the while explaining a divine war between opposing theological beliefs. The problem, however, does not come from my occasional religious interpretive or depiction disputes (blond hair and blue eyed Hebrew Joseph, who is in chains in an Egyptian prison when it is clearly stated that he runs the joint?), but from the lackluster characterization of the main, mortal, players (and I mean much more so than the mostly naked depictions of an underage girl with an impossible body) who bore me to tears. I want to like this series but find it so hard to do so; I'm much more interested in Rushkoff's explanations and thoughts on his creative process that the second and third volume have.
