Simon & Schuster announced today that they have acquired God’s 2011 untitled memoir.
It was announced today that they acquired the rights to a new memoir by God – Supreme Being, wellspring of existence, quintessence of glory, and source of everlasting life – have been acquired by Simon & Schuster.
“We are pleased and honored to add the Lord Almighty to our list of notable authors,”
said Executive Vice President and Publisher Jonathan Karp.
The as-yet-untitled testament which Karp says he plans to publish in late 2011—in timeRead the entire press release here
for the busy pre-Armageddon retail season—will be semi-autobiographical in nature.
Senior editor Sarah Knight says this time around God “very much wants His words to be
clearly understood, as opposed to ‘interpreted,’ which has gotten people into trouble in
the past. To that end He will be abandoning his familiar ‘thee and thou’ format for a
folksier, ‘thee and you’ approach that I and everyone in marketing believe will highlight
his omniscience without making him seem like a know-it-all.”
I won’t share my opinion here, instead I want to know your thoughts. Is this just good humor or borderline sacrilege?
