In the book that inspired the series starring Daniel Radcliffe and Steve Buscemi, God decides to close up shop on Earth unless two idealistic angels can pull off a miracle: getting two socially awkward humans to fall in love.
Welcome to Heaven, Inc., the grossly mismanaged corporation in the sky. For as long as anyone can remember, the founder and CEO (known in some circles as “God”) has been phoning it in. Lately, he’s been spending most of his time on the golf course. And when he does show up at work, it’s not to resolve wars or end famines, but to Google himself and read what humans have been blogging about him.
When God decides to retire (to pursue his lifelong dream of opening an Asian fusion restaurant), he also decides to destroy Earth. His employees take the news in stride, except for Craig and Eliza, two underpaid angels in the lowly Department of Miracles. Unlike their boss, they love their jobs — uncapping city fire hydrants on hot days, revealing lost keys in snow banks — and they refuse to accept that Earth is going under.
The angels manage to strike a deal with their boss. He’ll call off his Armageddon, if they can succeed as matchmakers for a hopeless pair of humans. With doomsday fast approaching, and the humans ignoring every chance for happiness thrown their way, Craig and Eliza must move heaven and earth to rescue them — and the rest of us, too.
