***NOW A MAJOR BROADWAY SHOW STARRING JIM PARSONS (THE BIG BANG THEORY) AND DIRECTED BY JOE MANTELLO (WICKED)***

Over the course of his long and distinguished career, God has literally seen it all. And not just seen. In fact, the multitalented deity has played a pivotal role in many major events, including the Creation of the universe, the entirety of world history, and the successful transitioning of American Idol into the post–Simon Cowell era. Sometimes preachy, sometimes holier-than-thou, but always lively, The Last Testament is the ultimate celebrity autobiography.

Read from the Book

PROLOGUE 1 I n the beginning, I took a lunch with Daniel Greenberg of the Levine Greenberg Literary Agency. 2 For the future of print was without hope, and void; and darkness had fallen upon the face of the entire publishing industry. 3 So one day Daniel, my agent, whom I have been with forever; by which I do not mean literally “forever,” as I started out unrepresented, but a good 25 years or so; 4 Anyway, Daniel got us a table at Balthazar; for he knows someone there. 5 So we met, and exchanged pleasantries, and sat down, and caught up; and in time I coyly came around to asking him why he wanted to see me, although I knew, and he knew that I knew, and I knew that he knew that I knew; but lo, this is how the game is played. 6 And then, over a frisée aux lardons that they were not serving in heaven then, but they are now , he spoke unto me: 7 “O LORD our God, King of the Universe, here’s what I’m thinking. 8 Thy previous books have sold an impressive six billion copies; 9 They form the basis of three great religions, and five crappy ones; 10 They have been translated into 2,453 languages, including that of a fictional race of TV aliens wearing shoe polish; 11 They can be found in every synagogue, church, mosque, and Comfort Inn in the world; 12 And most importantly, they have done for faith, and ethics, and morality, what The Bartender’s Bible hath done for bartending. 13 But lo, it has been nigh on 14 centuries since thy last book̵

Editorial Reviews

“[David Javerbaum] takes ghost writing to new heights. . . . The entire book is written to provoke laughter. That isn’t a bad thing in a world where we take ourselves far too seriously, most of the time.”—Ottawa Citizen
