Matt and his best friend Jesus are having lunch in a cafe in Portland, when a guy named Pete comes in and a few minutes later, punches Jesus in the face! And so the adventure begins - an adventure that involves a talking donkey, an unlimited amount of different "Jesus-es" (I think my personal favorite fake Jesus was a toss up between Magic 8 Ball Jesus and Testosterone Jesus) and even a few bible characters. Throw in a great deal of personal discovery and I found a winner.
I must admit, I was initially a little skeptical that I would enjoy this book....but I truly did! I thought it was clever, witty, entertaining, AND seriously thought provoking....not always a simple combination to achieve. I enjoyed the sense that it was a bit autobiographical, although it was technically a fiction book. The author's sense of humor is evident (I laughed out loud a few times), but it's in no way irreverent or insulting. His nods and inside jokes resonated with me. I definitely recommend this book and look forward to reading more by Mr. Mikalatos.
