Did you ever wonder about Jesus as a child? If he ever did anything funny? Stupid? Childish?
Well, Christopher Moore (with his usual straight forward & smart ass sense of humor) wanted to answer some of these questions and thus began the discovery of Lamb, the Gospel according to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal. It's irreverant, intriguing, hillarious and shocking. It's also one of the best things I've ever listened to (I did the book via Audible).
If you have any biblical knowledge you will easily recognize many of the stories through out the book. The twist? They are all told from Biff's (Jesus' BFF) point of view. Biff does have trouble recalling some of the stories at first. After all, he has been dead for thousands of years and today suddenly one of the Lord's Angels is all but holding him hostage in a hotel room. Regardless of his sudden resurrection Biff does an excellent job recreating Jesus' childhood in a way never told before.
Give it a read (or listen as I prefer) and let me know what you think!
