The Gospel of the Second Coming... Jesus is back and this time hes funny! (Hay House), on shelves now, is a funny, fictional portrayal of a present-day Jesus correcting the controversial misunderstandings surrounding his history.
Co-author Timothy Freke says that while the book is ultimately a teaching story with a soft heart, all the funny philosophy and religious ribbing comes at a controversial cost.
He says, We didnt set out to offend anyone, but we inevitably will. We havent gotten any death threats, but weve gotten an awful lot of after-death threats!
And Freke says the joking Jesus has his target on a true Tinseltown troublemaker.
Freke says, I talk to Jesus a lot, and hes expressed a great deal of concern for Mel Gibson.
Frekes book tour begins today (Oct. 22) in Boulder, Colorado, and runs until October 31. For more info, check out timothyfreke.com.
