The Lost Gospel of Donald

by Preston Coleman

Overview

Reviewers are calling The Lost Gospel of Donald “brilliant,” “ingenious,” “deliciously bold,” “pungent, poignant, and hilarious,” and “brilliantly conceived and executed.”

If you’re suffering from Trump fatigue, Trump Derangement Syndrome, Trumpitis, or any other Trump-related illness, this is the remedy for you: laughter!

Description
What if DONALD TRUMP met JESUS CHRIST face to face? Would love, mercy, and forgiveness overcome hate, greed, jealousy, and revenge? The Lost Gospel of Donald answers these questions with an irreverent romp through the Holy Land circa 30 A.D., starring a familiar cast of characters. Only now, they're seen through the eyes of the ruthless head of a hospitality empire, Donald of Gaul, who spots John the Baptist dunking Jesus on the Jordan River and subsequently witnesses a series of spectacular miracles. Believing Jesus to be the best magician the world has ever seen and assuming baptism to be a wet tunic contest, Donald recruits the aspiring messiah to perform as a headliner at his properties. Alas! Jesus has loftier ambitions. But Donald won't take "NO" for an answer. Set against the fall of the republic and the rise of depravity and dictatorship in Rome, this blistering satire is fastidiously faithful to the original gospels. Birth, Baptism, Transfiguration, Crucifixion, Resurrection, Ascension—it's all here, in the unmistakable language (some real and some masterfully impersonated) of The Donald. The Lost Gospel of Donald features the true philosophy of Jesus IN HIS OWN WORDS and reveals the true character of Donald IN HIS. And the end? It's murder…a Chapter 13 Donald will never recover from.

A not to be missed irreverent look at the lives and times of Donald Trump. Preston Coleman, the author of this extremely witty book is a professor of communication with a doctorate in media studies. Anyone reading this clever story will not be surprised that he has won awards for his teaching, research, and satire. At a time when many Americans, and indeed the rest of the world are frustrated and concerned about the words and actions of Donald Trump, through this clever work of historical fiction, the author gives his readers a satirical look at the life and times of this egotistical world leader. The recent discovery of a previously unknown gospel in the basement of a Russian Orthodox church in Weehawken, New Jersey, written by Donald of Gaul has opened the eyes of the world in a revolutionary new way. In this gospel, Donald Trump is Donald of Gaul, a wealthy entrepreneur with a hospitality empire. Forward-thinking he is always looking for new talent and acts, and having seen John the Baptist baptize Jesus he thinks they are magicians of the best caliber and admires their ability to draw crowds, just what he is looking for! And so the story continues bringing forth from me a stream of giggles as I read this talented author’s work. With Donald of Gaul taking us through the four gospels, the New Testament, and the history of Rome from Julius Caesar to Nero, in his own unique ‘business speak’ he gives his reader his tongue in cheek take on the holy book and the teachings of its prophets. Whilst the Lost Gospel of Donald is an extremely entertaining, ingenious work of fiction, it also, at the turn of every page, give its readers an interesting wealth of discussion topics, and copious material for debate. With clever comparisons, the author has highlighted some of the terrible career decisions which Donald Trump has made, and which have caused untold frustration to many people both in America and throughout the world. In Conclusion: This irreverent, clever and witty book is just what we need! It sums up the worrying mind and makeup of this current world leader precisely, and I think it will become a classic, and afford talking points for years to come. Read more
