This is a very, very funny book." -- Los Angeles Times The world sucks! And no one knows that better than God. (He sees everything, remember?) He decides it's time for that ultimate wake-up call. Only this go-round, the Big Man is giving his Daughter a shot. "An irreverent look at the Second Coming." -- New York Times Her name is Ilona. She's 18, listens to alternative music, drinks beer and diet soda, and has no problem telling the Pope that he better get his act together...pronto! Ilona becomes a media sensation, promoting the eleventh commandment on the David Letterman show. She's the messiah for this x-generation: cool, quirky, and sexy. And as Jesus Christ's kid sister, she's not about to take any crap from the men who've been running the show. "Counters dogma with fun." -- Oxford Review THE SECOND GREATEST STORY EVERY TOLD is a comic gem of a novel reminiscent of Nick Hornby, Tom Perrotta, and Kurt Vonnegut. Hip, enchanting and life affirming, it tackles all the big issues: Good, Evil, and Rock 'n' Roll. "Imaginative." -- Publisher's Weekly
