(Audio) Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal by Christopher Moore

87

This was very well read. The narrator kept my attention. I did have to listen to it twice because the wit and humor does get a little lost in the biblical “stuff”. Speaking of biblical, if you are highly religious, you might find this a little offensive. But I think people are way too sensitive about their religion anyway. This is FUNNY. I totally want the book that looks like a black bound bible for my bookshelf. That would be awesome.

Back to the book… this is great. It fills in what the other books of the bible didn’t tell us… told by Joshua’s (LOL) best friend… none other than Biff. I love Biff. I love that his name is Biff. I just love so much about that that I cannot even begin to explain why.

Just read it. It’s hilarious. Christopher Moore is one twisted dude. And well, I love that.

Synopsis

The birth of Jesus has been well chronicled, as have his glorious teachings, acts, and divine sacrifice after his thirtieth birthday. But no one knows about the early life of the Son of God, the missing years — except Biff, the Messiah’s best bud, who has been resurrected to tell the story in the divinely hilarious yet heartfelt work “reminiscent of Vonnegut and Douglas Adams” (Philadelphia Inquirer).

Verily, the story Biff has to tell is a miraculous one, filled with remarkable journeys, magic, healings, kung fu, corpse reanimations, demons, and hot babes. Even the considerable wiles and devotion of the Savior’s pal may not be enough to divert Joshua from his tragic destiny. But there’s no one who loves Josh more — except maybe “Maggie,” Mary of Magdala — and Biff isn’t about to let his extraordinary pal suffer and ascend without a fight.
