The Messiah of Morris Avenue - A Novel

Tony Hendra

More Information

Description:

Tony Hendra's Father Joe became a new classic of faith and spirituality- even for those not usually so inclined. Now he's back with a novel set in a very reverent future where Church and State always walk hand-in-hand. Fade in as Johnny Greco- a fallen journalist, who nurses a few grudges along with his cocktails, stumbles onto a story that intrigues him. It seems a young man named Jay is driving about New Jersey in a beat-up van preaching radical notions like kindness and generosity-and even tossing off a few miracles. How better, Johnny schemes, to stick it to Reverend Sabbath (America's #1 Holy Warrior) than to write a headline-making story announcing Jay as the Second Coming? Then something strange happens. Died-in-the-wool skeptic Johnny actually finds his own life being transformed by the new messiah. Hilarious and genuinely moving, The Messiah of Morris Avenue brings to life a savior who reminds the world of what Jesus actually taught and wittingly skewers all sorts of sanctimoniousness on both sides of the political spectrum. Writing with heart, a sharp eye, and a passionate frustration with those who feel they hold a monopoly on God, Tony Hendra has created a delightful story that reminds us of the unfailing power of genuine faith.
