Merged at the soul with the demon/angel hybrid known as Genesis, the Reverend Jesse Custer is now the one preacher on Earth who can truly speak the Word of God. Anyone who hears his commands must instantly obey them -- or almost anyone. When his most lethal enemies arrive to take him back to the family homestead, Jesse finds out that The Word is not quite as foolproof as he thinks. And that's bad news for Jesse and his gunslinging girlfriend, Tulip O'Hare, because now he must face the creature that made his childhood a living hell: his Gran'ma.

He doesn't know it yet, but Jesse has been drafted into history's greatest and most terrible conspiracy -- and he's about to find out just how hard it will be to say no.

Ennis also gives a little more of an explanation to why Jesse is so desire...
I'd heard great things about this series, but this will be as far as I go with it. I was underwhelmed with the first volume and this second volume, whilst better, didn't do enough to grab me.
