Pat Benatar got her own life story out of the way in a memoir she wrote a few years back, and now she's turned her attention to the life of someone else -- Jesus Christ.

Pat's been kicking around the idea of a book about the second coming for a while. She tells the Boston Globe she's really digging into it right now. She says "It’ s a novel.  I’m not overtly religious but I’m really very interested in religion and I was raised Catholic, and between that and Buddhism I’m in there somewhere."

She says, "I think Christ was an amazing human being. I don’t know where I stand on that whole thing, but the point is I think this was an amazing phenomenon that happened on Earth, and the idea that it wouldn’t happen again is crazy — of course it would — so I’m just going there."
