    Given the fawning coverage of Barack Obama during this election season, a story about Jesus Christ coming back to Earth and running for president seems almost redundant But American Savior is blessed with enough gentle humor to keep this novel of divine politics fresh and even a little inspiring The author, Roland Merullo, is developing something of a specialty in comic fiction with religious overtones or, if you prefer, religious fiction with comic overtones In a previous novel, Breakfast Given the fawning coverage of Barack Obama during this election season, a story about Jesus Christ coming back to Earth and running for president seems almost redundant But American Savior is blessed with enough gentle humor to keep this novel of divine politics fresh and even a little inspiring The author, Roland Merullo, is developing something of a specialty in comic fiction with religious overtones or, if you prefer, religious fiction with comic overtones In a previous novel, Breakfast with Buddha, a publishing executive drives across America with a Mongolian monk enlightenment ensues And before that, Merullo published Golfing with God, about a golf pro in heaven trying to pull the Big Guy s game out of a slump.The set up for American Savior sounds like the answer to a satiris...

    I have enjoyed every book I have ever read by Roland Merullo His style of writing and subject matter of every day life is something with which I can identify American Savior is no exception With great imagination and forethought, he fictionalizes a world gone sour and a savior who comes to help us all out of our quagmire And in realistic fashion, as happened before, long ago, the savior is rejected and doubted by many Merullo s depiction of our modern society is so point on that I had to lo I have enjoyed every book I have ever read by Roland Merullo ...
