The Initiate's Blog: The Crucial First Six Months is a satirical and thought-provoking yarn about the second coming. Well, he said he would come back - so no big surprise there, but this time he turns up in Burnley, Lancashire, of all places. His first public address being at a Golf Club Society dinner. Throughout his eventful and exploratory six month visit, various comical and at times disastrous events unfold such as the wine in a mediocre restaurant being so bad that he turns it back into water, eating a kebab after a few too many Boddingtons, resulting in the hangover from hell, so it's a tad reassuring to know that even He of huge faith can't even come up with the miracle cure for hangovers. As someone who isn't from our world can only do, this unique insight and tongue-in-cheek account looks at the present business world and modern life. It is a reminder of the idiosyncrasies which become obscured by the repetitive daily grind, such as being told by a restaurant that they don't have a table available at 7.30 pm but they can offer you a table at 7.15 pm.
