The Last Testamentby David Javerbaum
Synopses & Reviews
“Like the Bible, if the Bible were narrated by Mel Brooks on crack-laced manna,” says The Washington Post of God’s telleth-all memoir, revised and updated for the Post-Apocalyptic Era. Includes 100 top tweets from @thetweetofgod and a fully revised Book of Revelations!
Over the course of his long and distinguished career, God has literally seen it all. And not just seen. In fact, the multi-talented deity has played a pivotal role in many major events, including the Creation of the universe, the entirety of world history, the life of every human being who has ever lived, and the successful transitioning of American Idol into the post-Simon Cowell era. Now, as the Earth he has godded so magnificently draws to a Mayan-induced close, God breaks his 1,400-year literary silence with his final masterpiece, The Last Testament. As dictated to his mortal amanuensis, Emmy Award-winning comedy writer and former executive producer of The Daily Show David Javerbaum, God looks back with unprecedented candor on his time in the public sector.
Sometimes preachy, sometimes holier-than-thou, but always lively, The Last Testament is “a bawdy circus of theological vaudeville…determined to sacrifice every sacred cow on the altar of farce” (The Washington Post).

About the Author
God has been grabbing headlines ever since first creating the universe. Indeed, the multi-talented deity has been involved in the development of every single thing that has ever happened, including the Crusades, plate tectonics, and Seinfeld. His previous serious works as an author, The Old Testament, The New Testament, and The Koran, have sold an impressive 5 billion copies, with the first two in particular coming to be collectively regarded as something of a bible of their field.
David Javerbaum is a former head writer and executive producer of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. He is the coauthor of that show’s bestsellers, America: The Book and Earth: The Book, and author of the pregnancy parody What to Expect When You’re Expected.
