Feeling as though he has a new lease on life, teenager Arnie Shultz is all set to begin another school year - his freshman year of college - preaching at a Catholic school on the California coast. But Arnie's gospel is different from the one Jesus taught - while Jesus brought the Kingdon of God to earth, Arnie brings his own vision to campus.

This novel is written for young adults but should be required reading for all thinking Christians. It's especially useful for church youth groups or teens/college students who are questioning the claims of traditional Christianity and wondering what it means to be a Christian in the modern world. In the book, Arnie, who has just left home for college, goes to a frat party where he's baptized with beer and bong water. After the devil enters into him, Arnie is never the same again (nor is the campus.) Throughout the school year, Arnie preaches a 'new gospel,' quite contrary to the gospel of Jesus, yet he manages to find redemption through it all--with the help of a renegade priest. This book was a gem to find, and I'll be recommending it to youth groups and college students. A must read for every thinking Christian willing to push the boundries of orthodoxy and tackle the difficult issues of the modern world.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
