Joe has been cursed to have coffee with God every week. Unfortunately, Yahweh is a crotchety old deity with a pantheon of family problems.
Joe Miller has been cursed. He must meet with Yahweh, the Creator, once a week for coffee, and listen to God’s problems. And boy, does Yahweh have problems: His son, Jesus, has been hiding out in the basement for 1700 years since he discovered his wife, the goddess of the Church, has been whoring it up with the gods of the state, of wealth, and now the goddess of anti-intellectualism. God’s wife, Frigga, has basically stopped talking to Him, except to keep nagging Him about retiring. It seems like there will be a coup at every board meeting of the various gods we humans worship. Oh, and Jesus’ estranged wife is plotting a terrorist attack to try to start a holy war. God doesn’t seem too interested in Joe’s problems, but things are rocky between Joe and his wife, Christy, who might be cheating with the handsome new adjunct professor who works with her at Western Oregon University. Also, the curse goes down to the fourth generation, so Joe has to figure out a way to protect his seven-year-old son from sharing his fate.
