"The Tumultuous Times of Jesus in the 21st Century," by Luke Breit, is the satiric tale of a God grown angry and impatient with modern day moneylenders who have made Christianity unrecognizable and turned it into the indispensable component of the Republican Party’s extreme rightwing. You won’t believe what God and His Son decide to do about it.
This “wholly engaging romp through the Second Coming” is part adventure, part religious thriller, part political mystery. Its hero is a Camel-smoking and Jack Daniels-drinking Jesus whose disciples include a beautiful Asian hooker, an agnostic political consultant, the world’s former top supermodel and the nation’s first woman/Latina/Native American presidential candidate. Their adversaries? Only the world’s richest televangelist and his henchman, an ex-marine assassin. It’s funny, it’s sexy and it will make you think.
