The Second Coming: A Love Story
By Scott Pinsker
Two men claim to be the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. Each claims the other is Satan in disguise. But only one is telling the truth… and damned if anyone knows who’s who.In The Second Coming: A Love Story, author Scott Pinsker takes a battle-axe to the Left Behind clichés, reimagining the End Days prophecies as an unruly theo-thriller: Soon after the earthly arrivals of two VERY different Second Comings, the United States splits along ideological lines, with Red America swiftly swearing allegiance to the conservative “savior” and Blue America (naturally) worshiping at the altar of the other. A cutthroat Culture War-turned-Holy War explodes, with both sides waging a win-at-all-costs marketing campaign to prove their savior’s supremacy.It’s finally happened: Red America and Blue America are headed for Armageddon!

#1 Most-Wished-for-Book of 2014 on Indie
Bound for over 10 weeks!
>Lunge into a funny, audacious, and devastating work of fiction based on factual events. As much a comedy as a tragedy, "Confessions is a unique piece of literature to be remembered for its originality as much as for its significance as a statement about living life in today's harsh reality." Explore the psyche of one of the world's most profound advisors: a Quixotic adventurer who admits freely to lurid depravity, substance abuse, and emotional complexity. Despite personal demons, he's fooled adherents into a unique reverence and might be responsible for saving more souls than Mother Teresa and Gandhi combined.
Hypocrite isn't a strong enough word for someone who writes self-help books purely for profit. Two of the world's ten wealthiest used Enzo as a ghostwriter and while they attribute their status in life to Enzo's words, not a single one willingly admits to knowing him. DeHaven, a patsy in Enzo's schemes and a recurring voice, shares his own perspective and often times paints himself in a very negative light, which adds a layer of credibility to such a fantastical story. Brief moments of compassion and insight are even more powerful and poignant from this perspective.
