My Imaginary Jesus | $14.99     Get this


My Imaginary Jesus is an hilarious, fast-paced, not-quite-fictional story that’s unlike anything you’ve ever read before. When Matt Mikalatos realizes that his longtime buddy in the robe and sandals isn’t the real Jesus at all, but an imaginary one, he embarks on a mission to find the real thing. On his wild ride through time, space, and Portland, Oregon, he encounters hundreds of other Imaginary Jesuses determined to stand in his way (like Legalistic Jesus, Perpetually Angry Jesus, and Magic 8 Ball Jesus). But Matt won’t stop until he finds the real Jesus—and finally gets an answer to the question that’s haunted him for years. Be warned: My Imaginary Jesus may bring you face-to-face with an imposter in your own life.

About the Author

Matt Mikalatos

Matt received his BA in writing from the University of California Riverside. Like many future world leaders, he began his career as a clerk at a comic book store. Having discovered that such work caused women to shun him, Matt took control of a high school classroom and taught American literature and drama (although he was best known for his riotous “study halls”). Then Matt, in an unexpected move, joined the staff of Cru. In a moment of weakness, his best friend, Krista, agreed to marry him. He and Krista were briefly expatriated by Cru to East Asia, where they ministered for three years. Now back in the States, Matt provides leadership to the international ministries of Cru’s Northwest Region. Matt has published articles in Discipleship JournalThe Wittenburg DoorRelief, and Coach’s Midnight Diner. Matt and Krista live near Portland, Oregon. They have three beautiful daughters.
