When I was first asked to read and review this book I was intrigued enough to say yes. I'm glad I did. I am impressed that the author chose not to take a side in this story. It is told in a way that you walk away wondering which man is which. I like that element. It gives the reader food for thought. Don't think you will read this book which show us two men both claiming to be the returned messiah, and find out which one is which. You won't learn this. I loved that it was set up so that the two me approach it the way politicians would. The constant question running through the book is "What if"? Would I recommend this book? Yes I would. I would not categorize this as Christian because there are too many questions left open. I would suggest you get a copy and read it for yourself.
I received a copy to facilitate my review. ( )

Scott Pinsker has written " Second Coming " . I rec'd an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest opinion of his book. This is my honest opinion. First let me say this , Thank you very much for allowing me to read your book. I found it very thought provoking . This book makes you think about what can happen in the future when the apocalypse comes .In the book Mr Pinsker writes about several different types of people - a lawyer-a gay-a minister-a reporter. He also writes about political opinions versus religious ones. I must say that I found this book very interesting and an a must read for all, The title of the book at first had me by surprise until I got into the book it self. This story is not a fast read but one that is to be read an re-read . As what the writer has ti say is important and very informative. I do recommend this book to all readers . The rating that I give this book is 25 stars out 5 stars. Now - What are you waiting for??? GO GET YOUR COPY TODAY AT AMAZON!!!! GO RUN GET IT NOW!! ( )

I was invited by Scott Pinsker to read and review his new thriller, The Second Coming: A Love Story. "I don't know if it's your cup of tea, but it does touch on a number of issues that you are interested in: business, marketing, God, Jesus, morality, activating an audience, PR, etc." Where Jews expect their Messiah, and Christians belief He actually came 2,000 years ago, but will return, this Second Coming is placed in apocalyptic times and circumstances. If you've ever imagined how you and others, living in the here and now, would react if someone would claim to be the Christ, this book takes a zigzag through modern age American points of view when not one, but two people, Joe and Israel claim to be Jesus Christ. And the other of course is labeled Adversary or Satan in disguise.
A hilarious, over-the-top tour along politics, ideologies, world religions, biblical names and characters hell or heaven bound culminate in a television debate to win souls. While the book's not meant to explain theology or will end up in a Christian bookstore, I could see the humour despite the many 'expressions of strong language'. If you want to gain world power, what's your marketing plan? Will you use intellectual arguments, a well-thought theology, a beautiful woman as side-kick, miracles and tricks? And is your truth really the truth, or is a supernatural plot being unfolded without explanation? What if a Grand Love Story is the real cause of humanity's twofold nature, both good and evil? The Second Coming will keep you engaged fo(u)r hours! ( )
