The Big Guy in Heaven is pissed off with the endemic greed, corruption and dishonesty in the world and his representatives on earth are doing little to stop it - in fact, they're just as bad. He decides a radical new Disciple is needed, and summons his archangels to come up with the right candidate. Archangel Voice (or Voicie), spaced out on moon juice, selects Jimmy Downie. Jimmy - hardworking, a few pints of a night when his funds allow, and the footie on Saturday, his only religion Liverpool FC - takes his family to Corfu on their first holiday abroad. The family arrives at the airport - and the hustle and bustle of the Departures hall suddenly stops. It is as if someone has pressed the pause button, freezing everyone in time - except Jimmy. Through the silence, a voice announces, not the next flight, but Jimmy's mission - he is the Disciple. Then click, normal service resumes. A stunned Jimmy tries to question what just happened, but nobody else is aware of it, or how massively Jimmy's life has just changed. Jimmy now embarks on a heart-searching journey as he tries to come to terms with his enormous responsibility... and his apparent ability to perform miracles. His only guide through the resulting chaos is the oddball archangel Voicie. What ensues is a hilarious (and often irreverent) novel, described by author Ken as `Theâ Bible... with jokes."
