A spiritual comedy set in Southeastern Florida, amid the strip malls and strip joints, where a middle-aged used car salesman meets an enigmatic, poor, young Puerto Rican. After some mysterious, perhaps miraculous occurrences, the salesman begins to wonder if there’s more to the young guy than meets the eye. If, in fact, he’s the Second Coming of Christ.
A Cadillac for Jesus is a spiritual comedy. Tommy Newman has come to southeast Florida to escape the cold and creditors back in New York. He is a tense, cynical, near-sighted Yankee liberal who likes loud rock music. Tommy works as a used car salesman at a small, rundown lot near Stuart. The owner of the business, Dwayne Ritchey, is a tobacco chewing, Confederate flag belt-buckle wearing good ol’ boy. Somehow Tommy and Dwayne manage to get along. Tommy meets a new customer, Jesus Centinni , a small, charismatic Latino man in his early twenties, who’s looking for a cheap Cadillac. Eventually Tommy hires him to help out at the car lot. Tommy soon sees some strange, unexplainable events happen around Jesus. Tommy struggles with his own cynical attitude about miracles, God, faith, and prayer, and wonders just who this Jesus Centinni really is.

Woven in with good humor are serious questions most if not all of us have had at one time or an other, the author doesn't have the answers but raises interesting possibilities. This is a quick read, primarily because you can't wait to find out what happens next and you just have to keep on reading.
