Bittersweet Jesus in the First Person turns the basic premise of Christ's life on its head. Yahweh is in trouble; Christ is his instrument and man his salvation. Extrapolated from Answer to Job by Carl Jung, Bittersweet Jesus in the First Person is fictionalized version of the life of Christ. It addresses his missing years while making Mary a God, Judas a saint, Moses a visionary, Allah and Romulus contemporaries and the Jews heroic. Through the story's characters it weaves pagan, Christian, Islamic, Greek, Chinese and Hindu influences into Christ's experiences. The book, written in dialogue, reveals Christ's life through counseling sessions between the ex-priest counselor and his messianic patient. The shallowness of indoctrination, the dubious rationale behind skepticism and the fundamental premise of Christian thought are viewed through the prism of this ostensibly, psychologically handicapped man.
