You wont 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 worlds former top supermodel and the nations first woman/Latina/Native American presidential candidate. Their adversaries? Only the worlds richest televangelist and his henchman, an ex-marine assassin.

Its funny, its sexy and it will make you think. About The Tumultuous Times of Jesus in the 21st Century,these writers say: I think the book is going to do very well. Liberals are going to love it. --Pulitzer Prize winner Norman Mailer Gods word has been misinterpreted in a corrupt world and Hes not happy about it, so He sends His only son to steer people back toward the right track.

Except its not 33 A.D. any longer, its 2003 and Jesus is still - gasp! - hanging out with hookers. Luke Breit has pulled off a wholly engaging romp through the Second Coming - only this time instead of a hardened tax collector, His best buddy is an agnostic political consultant. With a great deal of sly humor that the author uses well to serve his very serious observations, and some unexpectedly moving sweetness, the story moves along at a crisp clip to an end that is thoroughly satisfying to thoseof us who object to a certain political partys self-defined stranglehold on the approval of the Almighty.

-Lynn Vannucci, author of Coyote and Revolution in the Garden (with Dell Williams). The retelling of the story of Jesus is not an easy undertaking. In his first novel, The Tumultuous Times of Jesus in the 21st Century, Luke Breit delivers an oddly reverent tale about the preeminent figure of western civilization, placing Him firmly in the 21st Century and telling an oddly reverent tale of the impact of Jesus on the lives of a few other central characters, as well as the America in which they live.

The moneylenders, Philistines and power mongers in this story have much to worry about. In this poignant, political and still somehow lighthearted story, Jesus offers an opportunity to the real evildoers and hypocrites of our days to get right with him. He opens the hearts of some in the compassionate ways one would expect, but with a few twists. This is a good tale, blending scriptural history and fiction in surprising ways, and its enormously enjoyable writing.
