The irreverent story of three mismatched pilgrims―a reviled professor, a delusional homeless man, and a sinful priest―who pursue a remarkable relic and, in the end, find themselves.
Funny, poignant, filled with unexpected twists, it's a tale of friendship, faith, risk, redemption, kindness, hypocrisy, and rain.
"It's almost practically perfect... This book is laugh-out-loud funny and profound at the same time."
"Masterful raconteur John Prather pulls all the heretical stops... A highly original mix of belief and balderdash."
"Prather on occasion unleashes the scathing incredulity of a merciless satirist like Carl Hiaasen, but for the most part he displays genuine affection for his bewildered characters... This irreverent but empathetic satire offers a comic look at flawed humans in the pursuit of God."
"A book with passages that make you laugh, then later tease you to think more seriously about its themes... A sharp and funny story of discovery."
"I'm not sure I could list a book that I enjoyed more this summer than The Jesus Nut. It is easy to read, funny, quirky, well-written, and relatable... with more twists and turns than a roller coaster."
