James Frey's Upcoming Jesus Fiction

james freyYou gotta have respect for someone who annoys Oprah, and James Frey is that someone. He wrote a book, A Million Little Pieces, a memoir of his drug addiction. Oprah made it famous. Frey later admitted it wasn't all true. Shock. Betrayal. His next book will be even better!

James Frey is "working on a book, his own theoretical 'third book of the Bible,' that will now piss off Christians." Who is Frey's contemporary Jesus?
I think most of the fundamental and evangelical Christians in this country would be revolted by him. He'd endorse gay marriage, a woman's right to choose what they do with their bodies, a individual's right to love any other individual, regardless of gender. I believe he'd dismiss much of the supernatural silliness in the Bible; the universe being created in a week, angels with wings flying around like superheroes, a bearded God with a thundering voice.
He added, "Obviously the book will be fiction, just as I believe much, if not all, of the first two books of the Bible were fiction."

The first time I heard of the compelling idea of the third testament was in Russell T. Davies, The Second Coming, which is still high on my top 10 list. If you haven't seen it, treat yourself.
