Scotland's Jesus: The Only Officially Non-Racist Comedian
- Paperback - HarperCollinsPublishers
Reading 'Scotland's Jesus' should be like being called into the living room by your child shouting that they see a little red dot on the head of a TV newscaster, then riding the white hot bullet through the propaganda circuitry of his or her exploding brain.

In chapters ranging from international politics to the animal world, 'Scotland's Jesus' is allowed the opportunity to showcase his increasingly unsympathetic worldview and disintegrating psyche.
