James Frey to Write Modern-Day Holy Bible

The controversial author’s newest tome imagines a Messiah as if he were living in NYC today. 

James Frey — who was infamously yelled at by Oprah Winfrey for his mock-memoir A Million Little Pieces — is writing a modern-day Bible.

The Final Testament of the Holy Bible imagines a Messiah as if he were alive in New York City today.

Gagosian Gallery will publish a limited release of just 10,000 slipcased leatherette copies and 1,000 signed and numbered collector’s editions, USA Today reports. It will be released on Good Friday, April 22.

Writes the publisher in a statement: “The Final Testament of the Holy Bible is the story of Ben Zion Avrohom, also known as Ben Jones, also known as the Messiah, also known as the Lord God. Though he is the Messiah, Ben is not the man to whom Christians have prayed for the past two thousand years.”
