The Divine Dissimulation by Martin Lundqvist

When God dies, a villain takes his place.

The divine dissimulation

When God does, a villain takes his place!

In the distant future, the wealthy villain Abraham Goldstein funds a top-secret project to travel to heaven and meet God. Upon reaching heaven he finds out that God is dead. He also finds the technology necessary to take gods place and become a god in the eyes of men. 

Many years later Abraham and his angels, a group of genetically engineered super soldiers, rule Eden; a world created to simulate the Holy Land during the Bronze Age. They rule with terror and fear following the ancient laws. 

One day, an accident turns Abraham’s closest angel Lucifer against him, an event that plants the seed of Abraham’s destruction. Meanwhile, an ancient force is conspiring in the background to make its return to our world.

At the far end of it was a golden throne full of gemstones. It reflected the sunlight more intensely than Abraham had ever seen before. After marvelling at its beauty for a while, he looked below the throne. There was a dead man in robes lying on the ground; face down. Abraham approached the lifeless body and turned it around. He looked at it in awe. The corpse belonged to Yahweh the god of his people, the god of his dreams. But Yahweh was dead? How could this be?
After the initial shock, he knew that he would have to find a reason behind all of this for the sanity of his mind.
