About

What if God were an angry family man from Brussels?

What if he sat at his computer in his dressing gown, dreaming up commandments to amuse himself and annoy everyone else?

And what if his daughter, in a fit of childish pique, decided to change the rules and write a brand New Testament?

This gloriously imaginative comedy answers all these questions with a series of affectionately funny twists on religion and society.

Awards & Reviews

‘Bible stories with a thick coat of satire … a peppy, original and (importantly) very sweet story.’

‘Consistently playful, often delightful and frequently funny.’
