God is preparing to speak to you in another, hopefully, best-seller. According to publisher Simon and Schuester, the Almighty is looking to follow up his all-time number one book The Bible with a memoir.
But you'll never guess who will be God's (Holy) ghost writer. According to Entertainment Weekly, Jon Stewart's former* "The Daily Show" head writer and executive producer David Javerbaum will be serving in that capacity.
“God is represented by a burning bush, the Greek letters a and ‡, and, in this case, the Levine Greenberg Literary Agency, the same agency that represents David Javerbaum," the publisher said in a meant-to-be funny press release.
“We feel like we are the Chosen Publisher,” Simon & Schuster’s Executive Vice President and Publisher Jonathan Karp told Entertainment Weekly. “A lot of writers are creative, but this writer is really creative. And we think He can produce the manuscript quickly: More than seven days, but less than a year.”
The yet-to-be-titled tell-all memoir is due out in 2011.
*"Former" was added post publication.
