Shetterly, Will: The Gospel of the Knife. v1, 23 Aug 2008

From Booklist:

Shetterly's return to the story of Christopher Nix, from Dogland (1997), begins as historical fiction and quickly diverts into weirder territory. Now 14, Chris is invited to attend boarding school at the behest of Jay Dumont, who claims to owe the Nix family a debt. Accepting takes Chris far from his usual life. Under Dumont's tutelage, Chris discovers he can walk on water, heal, and manipulate others. Dumont explains that Chris is one of the nefilim, a magical race charged by God to rule the world. Yet Chris is uncomfortable with Dumont's assertion that these powers give the nefilim the right to rule as they see fit; he has seen how easily the powerful, including Dumont, are corrupted. The second-person, present-tense narration, off-putting at first, quickly becomes transparent, and Shetterly's blending of Vietnam-era realism and religious mysticism makes compelling reading.

Authors Note from the book:

The Gospel of the Knife is a novel published by Tor Books. Technically, it is a sequel to Dogland, but it’s meant to work as an independent novel.

The following text is not the copyedited version (I don’t have a file of that), so don’t blame Tor for minor mistakes.
