Description

Joseph Smith The Twenty-Fifth, a new Mormon prophet, emerges in Salt Lake City, much to the displeasure of the official LDS church. He brings with him a cadre of Apostles, not the least of whom are ones named Brigham and Jason. "JS25," as he is called by those close to him, like his predecessor from the 1800s, engages in polygamy, but with a twist. He doesn't have sex with his wives. The tale also features two men having problems with their dull, married sex lives and JS25's attempts to aid them. In this book, as in other books by this author, the reader can look forward to sympathetic depictions of blasphemy, substance abuse and truth-telling.

Smith pursues a female journalist working for the Deseret News. Meanwhile, through a conduit named "The Guru," he is being sought by a young female BYU student who has lost her faith after being exposed to her Agnostic fiancé's library of anti-Mormon literature. Also seeking his help is a Buddhist space-time traveler named Sensei who suffers from existential angst. The book is a short tale of healing, revelation, spiritual experiences and hopes fulfilled. One more than one occasion we also see interesting interventions by the President of the official LDS church. As always, there are no good guys or bad guys, just ecstatic, unresolved complexity.
