About The Book
The acclaimed satirist and bestselling author of Father Joe poses the question, would we recognize the messiah if he appeared today? and delivers, in the words of Frank McCourt, “just what the country needs now — a good dose of merriment in the face of crawthumping righteousness.”
In the not so distant future of Tony Hendra’s novel, the tide of righteousness — in the form of executions, barking evangelists, tank-like SUVs, and a movie industry run entirely by the Christian right — has swept the nation. Aside from the non-white, the non-Christian, and the non-wealthy, all are believers. Among the skeptics is a washed-up journalist named Johnny Greco, who hears of a media-shy young man known as “Jay”roaming through ghettos, healing the sick, and tossing off miracles. Soft-spoken and shabbily dressed, Jay is an unlikely savior for this antsy and intolerant America. But as he makes his rounds, gathers followers, and makes furious enemies among the righteous powers that be, Johnny finds it harder and harder to doubt him.
