Brilliant, entertaining, and engaging.
This book is as brilliant and entertaining as Merullo's other great books, Golfing with God and Breakfast with Buddha. The books makes you think and encourages you to be a better person no matter what religion you are (and yes, even us athiests find it enjoyable). I have never felt so close to Jesus! This book would be a great focus for a reading club. The characters are well-developed as is the plot, and there is plenty to talk about. All of Merullo's books are page-turners. I could take them to the beach, on a plane, inside on a rainy day, or on a hammock under the sun. I highly recommend this book, and suggest you check out his others as well. You don't have to be any particular religion to appreciate these characters and to learn from each one of them. I am looking forward to his other books.

American Savior; I vote, read it.
Very funny, satirical look at the American democratic process, with a religious spin.... The story is told through the eyes of a well known news reporter, who Jesus Christ, himself, has chosen as part of his campaign to run for President of the United States of America.Was this review helpful?

Merullo's Skillful Style Works Beautifully With This Concept
I have read many of Mr. Merullo's books, which are not only great fun, but poke gently at our foibles, these days, and include characters which are so well drawn that we don't notice any heavy handed messages. I *loved* "Golfing With God" and really enjoyed "Breakfast With Buddha" (as a Buddhist, I was impressed by how well the plot unfolded), but have to say that of all his books "American Savior" is the best that I have read. I literally did not put it down from start to finish but for "necessary" breaks for food and hygiene. I highly recommend this author's books as both good escapist fun and as great topics for conversation and debate. You won't be disappointed!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
