I read this book in 1998, a sci-fi book about the Second Coming of Jesus. I cannot remember the name of it, nor the author. The plot is that the military had this machine that would help a man become as if he was Jesus. This man came into America and started performing miracles. People around the world started coming to see him, but a few groups did not believe he was Jesus and decided to send assassins to kill him. The main character of the book is a reporter who unfolds the truth and wanted to save him. Has anybody by chance read this book?
It was a bestseller soft paperback when I read it.
