    Given how much I adored reading the first book in the Jessica Christ series – The Beginning – I'm not at all shocked by how much I've also loved the second one, And It Was Good (which I happily received as an advance review copy). It's just as wry, just as clever, and just as hilarious as the first one – with a delightful dash of romance and Texas football to boot – and I devoured it just as quickly, if not more so.In the first installment of this smart, satirical series, H. Claire Taylor explores the unusual, laugh-inducing childhood and adolescence of Jessica McCloud, God's only daughter. Here, in the second installment, she offers us the chance to see this intuitive, compassionate, and sympathetic young woman navigate her tumultuous teenage years. And if you think being a teenager is challenging for the average girl, then just imagine how tough it might be for the daughter of God.Besides having to deal with the typical trials of unrequited crushes, team tryouts, and back-stabbing classmates, poor Jessica also has to endure invasive, telepathic, infuriatingly unhelpful conversations with her father – not to mention the unwanted presence of her half-brother, Jesus, in her sex dreams, insisting that it's time to make miracles happen. In addition, she must face religious zealots and God-begrudging journalists, acknowledge that her words of forgiveness and damnation often have unintended consequences, and accept the real possibility that hot-and-heavy make-out sessions could lead to awful, climate-related calamities. Her storm-inducing menstrual periods, after all, are no picnic either.With all this craziness going on, thank God (Dad?) that she's able to find a bit of solace in her mother, her two best friends, her understanding high school principal, and her obsession with unsettling nature shows.So, if you're an open-minded reader who, like me, appreciates amusing, well-written stories that poke a bit of good-natured fun at adolescence, the media, organized religion, and unorthodox parenting skills, then you'll certainly enjoy this novel. Frankly, I plan to read it again – as I eagerly await the third installment of Jessica's holy misadventures in the Lone Star State.

    If football is your religion, and for you, it's not just a game, then you might enjoy this second book of the series a lot. Friends and family members of mine will probably find it a bit heretical, but I just never loved football like that. So this book didn't appeal to me quite as much as the first. I received an advance copy of this book from Booksprout. In my opinion, I think my lack of football savvy made me miss some of what a friend told me were some pretty funny jokes. The idea makes sense: in a Friday Night Lights kind of way, it's football - in Texas. And God's only begotten Daughter becomes a place kicker. Interestingly, the boys on her team accept her for who she is, God's daughter and all. They are pretty color blind. They also tell Jess she deserves a guy who respects her for who she is, and treats her with the respect women deserve. Go team! If you are a bigger football fan than I am, or if you enjoy strong young female characters, this is a good read - and you might find even more humor, along with some southern dignity and Justice. A good YA read too.

    I liked this second Jessica Christ book slightly less only because of all the football (which I do not understand). Other than that, a well written sequel that follows the daughter of God through her first two years of high school, navigating boyfriends and sex (or not) and friendships and figuring out how to handle her apparent fate, find her miracles and purpose. I will probably immediately start the third book even though I just picked up a huge stack of library books because these are such addictive and fast reads. These books definitely deserve a mass market publisher. They're flat out fun.

    I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. Omg! This is one of the best series I've read in a while! This book is the second of the series, but it's just as good as the first. Jessica has the best inner monologs with her dad, and her dreams with Jesus are hysterical. I can't wait to read the next one!

    While not as laugh-a-minute as BOOK 1, this is still an excellent read. I just now bought book 3 because I'm really looking forward to seeing what happens next.WTG H.!

    The writing was absolutely as good as the first book. The author is fearless. Having said that, I'm not sure I'll continue the series. I wasn't offended by anything in it, but it seemed clear that I wasn't the target audience, either. Maybe I should have seen that coming, given the book covers, but the content of the first book didn't give me that impression. I think women will love this book, and I sincerely enjoyed it. But I also felt like I was barging in on someone else's party.
