The Second Greatest Story Ever Told


"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

Here is a marvelous collection of photographs taken by my friend Kathy Milani, during the fall 1991 book signing tour for THE SECOND GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD.  She presented them to me in a book-like album as a Christmas present in 1991.  I present them to you now.  


This is the NOTEBOOK which I kept during the writing and rewriting of The Second Greatest Story Ever Told.  It is complete and unedited.
