The Twitter Gospels, by David H. Parish

With a deft hand, Parish weaves into this religious thriller facts of historical relevance, sumptuous descriptions of regional foods … and an admiring attentiveness in the depictions of his women characters. Parish has crafted a prescient and thoughtfully weighty story that reflects on religion’s effect on relationships and communities.

– Kirkus Reviews

The Twitter Gospels brilliantly combines intrigue, history, and church politics that tells a story of power, conflict, and religious fervor without losing sight of the importance of faith, devotion, and love.

Jesuit high school teacher and Seminarian Paolo Venticinque is abruptly dispatched by the Vatican to Jerusalem. His mission: to interview hospital patients who believe themselves to be Jesus Christ and to discover the voice behind a progressive Twitter account that warns the world of the Vatican’s “false teachers”. Unbeknownst to Paolo, the viral account is seen as a growing threat by conservatives within the Vatican, who are determined to silence it while conspiring against a beloved and inclusive pope. Follow Paolo through a crisis of faith as he strives to view a confusing world through compassionate eyes.
