James Frey pens modern day ‘Holy Bible’

By Ann Oldenburg, USA TODAY

By Gregory CrewdsonJust in: James Frey, controversial author of A Million Little Pieces, has penned a new work, The Final Testament of the Holy Bible.

Gagosian Gallery has announced the book will have have a limited U.S. print run of 10,000 slipcased leatherette copies, as well as 1,000 collector’s editions signed and numbered by the author. The book will be released on Good Friday, April 22.

According to the publishers, 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.”

Frey said in a 2008 interview the book is his “idea of what the Messiah would be like if he were walking the streets of New York today.”
