Bigger Than Jesus
Daniel Brooks and Rick Miller
About the Book
Called a “multimedia mass for a modern age”, Bigger Than Jesus is a multi-faceted examination of Christianity in the light of popular culture and the media. After three years of development, Bigger Than Jesus premiered to critical acclaim at the Toronto’s Factory Theatre on November 18, 2004, and is now poised for an international tour.
“Loaded with humour, dramatic intensity and even moments of horror… There isn’t a more invigorating, thoughtful and exciting piece of theatre in Toronto.”
“…[Bigger Than Jesus] leads the audience from the blessing to the benediction in what could be the most entertaining mass ever.”
