Duncan Whiteheadabout this book: Oh, where to start with this book ...
It is primarily a comedy, with a few messages, but nothing too deep. It is a 'what if' book. Set in Manhattan in 1999, our hero Seth Miller, a bachelor and architect is informed by his mother that he is actually ... the second coming of Christ!
This book is a hilarious satire, it includes historical figures, a bumbling 'Savior' and a just as inept anti-Christ.
God is portrayed as a somewhat nonchalant supreme being while Satan...well, is he really that bad?
This book won the Reader's Favorite International Book Award for Humor, and despite its subject matter is not offensive. Oh, by the way, it features a talking cat ...
I guess the hardest part of writing comedy is perception; what is funny to one person is not always funny to others. There is a fine line between funny and offensive, I believe you, the reader, will find the humor ... it is quite literally a comedy of biblical proportions!
