about this item
A nameless angel, a harbinger from the early days of the New Testament, has been out of God’s favour since things went wrong with his last mission 2,000 years ago, when he unwittingly started the Christian church. He has spent the intervening millennia watching the humanity he so loves fall into moral disrepair at the rise in our social and technological advances.Lately, he's been watching a business executive named Will, who is attempting to expose his company's shady dealings to the press. In a moment of weakness and bravado, the angel decides to take over Will--"jumping in" as he did over two millennia ago--and try to make amends for the devastating consequences that his last act wreaked on the western world. But his divine superiors are less than pleased with this turn of events. Now not only does he have to face the literal wrath of God for his actions, he is also desperate to finish what Will started. However as he soon remembers, being human--with all our potential and all our weaknesses--is not easy.As he begins to lose his grip on himself and his mission, the reader is forced to question exactly whose reckoning this is: The delusions of a man who has lost his grip on reality? Or the illusion of an angel desperate to right our wrongs?
