    The last ten years have mutated my views on religion I went from a vague agnostic live and let live attitude to a full blown distrust and dislike of mass worshipping of mysterious deities When it wasn t being used as an excuse to murder people who believed different things, then it was being used to deny basic scientific concepts or prevent consenting adults from marriage based on gender Overall, I

    If you ve been following my reviews over the last few years, I don t see any reason why I should have to put a caution into this, but here it is if you re not interested in speculative fiction, open to the reinterpretation of the life of Jesus, speculation on the gaps in the gospels and the possibility of pan religious values having been vital to the formation of Christianity, then you should probably not

    Christopher Moore image from SFGate Jesus, the missing years, as told by his best buddy, Biff This a very entertaining, laugh out loud funny book, at times It is clear that there is real content under the yucks Where did JC go between the time he dazzled the intellectuals at the temple at twelve and when he returned at thirty to do his messiah thing Asia figures prominently, Buddhism, an Asian aesthetic You might wan

    This book is funny as HELL Though funny and most definitely irreverent, Lamb is a story about the Son of God and his times here on Earth amongst people, told from the perspective of Biff, Joshua s Jesus childhood pal and Moore fills up the lost thirty some odd years from the gospels Biff is the Jewish lothario Forrest Gump of Biblical stories and Moore uses Biff s narrative as a vehicle to explore the ancient world, often

    Lamb is the story of the missing years of Jesus, as told by his best pal Biff That s all you need in the way of summary.I was subjected to 12 years of Catholic school and mass every sunday for even longer than that so when I heard of the existence of a humorous book about Jesus missing years, I jumped for it with all the lapsed Catholic enthusiasm I could muster Was I disappointed Most definitely not In fact, I was the opposite

    Christopher Moore is a sick, sick fuck And I mean that in a good way.I found a copy of this wonderfully hilarious novel at the Champaign Public Library Book Sale and decided that I ought to own a copy It holds up well on a second read and served to fill a nostalgia for Kurt Vonnegut, whose death I may not ever get over This book is very reminiscent of Vonnegut in its plotting and style and wisecracks and it certainly filled a hole I v

    I m considering taking down this review, as I m not happy that my most liked review is a negative one It s too easy to earn praise by casting stones A book recommendation that I suffered through not for charges of blasphemy, but for style I can t stand this type of comedic writing with its obvious set ups and zingers and formulaic irreverence Douglas Adams wanna be This type of humor gets enough time between news items on NPR s All Things C

    some spoilers Lamb starts with one of my favourite quotes, which sets the scene very aptly God is a comedian playing to an audience that is afraid to laugh Voltaire A deceptively slim looking book but one that is absolutely heavenly to hold no pun intended with it s glossy floppy cover and delicate leaves , Lamb is, as the title says, the fictional story of Christ s childhood as told by his best friend Levi who is called Biff.Now, Moore doesn t m

    Mel Brooks and Monty Python have been there, done that Christopher Moore retraces the steps of those comedy greats of the past in his Lamb The Gospel According to Biff, Christ s Childhood Pal, a lighthearted take on what Christians call the greatest story ever told Sure, it s a good story, but it s also rife with parody potential and humorists have been squeezing it for laughs probably since it was first told That being the case, Moore s book travels a
