Imus is back -- by popular demand -- with the Second Greatest Story Ever Told, the hilarious novel about the most outrageous TV evangelist of them all -- Billy Sol Hargus.

"God had two sons. Jesus was His first, and I, Billy Sol Hargus, am His second." Thus begins Don Imus's riotously funny story about the life and times of the lecherous, corrupt, hustling, huckstering television evangelist who claims to have a 2,000 year old brother named Jesus. From his backwoods Texas country-preacher roots, Billy Sol rose to dazzle the nation as a Superstar Minister -- preaching at sold-out stadiums and traveling across the country.

Reverend Billy raked in the dough, the fame, and the women. And then it happened -- just like Amelia Earhart and Jimmy Hoffa, Billy Sol vanished one day into legend, disappearing from the face of the earth. But unlike anyone else in the Family, Billy kept a diary -- and now his tapes, believed lost, can finally be heard. Praise the Lord! Download and start listening now!

    " Christopher Moore and Gore Vidal did it better. Still - worth a beach towel and mai tai - for those of you who go out in the sun anyway. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Stephen Hughes | 5/24/2013

    " One of the unfunniest books ever written. Of course it sucks, it was written by Charles McCord...with Don Anus supervising. Gouge out your eyes with sharpened celery stalks before reading this absolutely atrocious 'comedy'. You'll thank me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 12/29/2012

    " I love contrasting this with A Prayer For Owen Meany - examining what it means to be a hand of God and realizing that zealots all through history each think that THEY are the chosen sons of God - and - they all may be just that - who knows? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 11/24/2012

    " Read this when I used to listen to him on the radio. This is a guy's book although it does have some amusing moments... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bryan Lee | 9/7/2012

    " This one was great. Even when I wasn't reading it, I would think about a part in the book and start laughing! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Burrosk | 2/23/2012

    " This book is a satire where a man believes that he is God's son because he has no father. Thus, it must have been an immaculate conception. Very funny and a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shaun Ryan | 10/26/2011

    " Hilarious, irreverent, and cynical. Definitely a laugh out loud read. Unless you take yourself too seriously, that is. Then prepare to be offended. "

    " Glad I read it, just so I have another reason never to listen to, or read another, Don Imus. "

    " This is one of those books that I should not have read, but did any way.
    I never laughed so hard in my life and felt so dang guilty for doing so.
    It's a very very irreverent book...
    But it is dang funny.... "

    " I can't imagine why I would have ever read a book written by such a racist jackass . . . but then again any book that ends with the main character super-glued to a cross isn't all bad. "
