Following a fiery crash, Eddie Magdalena wakes up naked but unscathed on a hilltop in Northern Ontario to find that he is forever changed. Twelve local witnesses are sure they had seen the arrival of the Messiah. With their support, Eddie takes his first tentative steps towards Jerusalem. Despite a growing media frenzy, cries of ‘AntiChrist’, opposition from many religious leaders, a Vatican plot and even a secret DNA test, Eddie surges on with his message of universal love as exultant calls of ‘I have been Eddified’ continue to grow.

What They're Saying
Colin Hayward’s book follows a host of colourful characters on a pilgrimage along the razor’s edge of myth and faith. The lines are illuminated with spirits, reading like a Douglas Adams revision of a holy scripture, dipped from the inkwell of Michael Ondaatje. The Summer of the Second Coming is a divine fever-dream, equal parts hilarious and profound, arriving in its first pages like a mystery and leaving us miraculous."
Matthew Heiti, Author of The City Still Breathing
What if the Second Coming already came, and we missed it? Colin Hayward presents us with a perplexing dilemma and drives a comedic nail into what the entire Christendom has been waiting 2000 years for. Something not to miss.”
M.E. Eadie, Author of The Rivertown Series, and The Veiled Lady
