When God returns, he finds all hell has broken loose: world wars, holocausts, famine, capitalism and "fucking Christians everywhere". There's only one thing for it. They're sending the kid back.
JC, reborn, is a struggling musician in New York City, trying to teach the one true commandment: be nice! His best chance to win hearts and minds is to enter American Pop Star. But the number-one show in America is the unholy creation of a record executive who's more than a match for the Son of God...Steven Stelfox.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Second Coming to be better than the print version?
I haven't read the print version.
If you’ve listened to books by John Niven before, how does this one compare?
This is my 1st John Niven book & I shall be listening to more.
Which character – as performed by Nick Landrum – was your favourite?
Jesus Christ of course.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I could have listened in one sitting if I had the time.
Any additional comments?
Very funny, great satire on modern life & particularly religion. Great performance by the narrator except that his Scottish accent for Saint Andrew is atrocious, especially puzzling as the author is himself Scottish. I can only presume he never got to hear the performance himself.

Like the Bible, but newer.
Some great stories about Jesus and friends. He's back and up to his old tricks again. Great fun. However, I found the gratuitous sex scenes a bit much.
