Lamb The Gospel According to Biff Christ's Childhood Pal

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 InquirerVerily 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 —except maybe Maggie Mary of Magdala—and Biff isn't about to let his extraordinary pal suffer and ascend without a fight

    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’d become convinced that humanity was far too stupid to use religion as anything but yet another system to justify telling someone else how to liveSo naturally one of my favorite novels of the last ten years is a funny and touching book about the life of JesusYeah it was that kind of decadeThe story is told by Jesus’s best friend Biff Actually Biff quickly explains that Jesus was known as Josh back in the days when they were kids in Nazareth Biff knows there is something special about Josh from the moment they meet and he adopts a life long role of dealing with the practical matters that the naive Josh tends to overlook When teen aged Josh decides to track down the wise men who attended his birth to see what they can teach him about how he should become the Messiah Biff knows he has to go along to protect Josh from an evil world Together they travel across Asia invent sarcasm learn alchemy discover coffee and become kung fu experts as Josh prepares himself to one day return home and fulfill his ultimate destinyIt’s no surprise that Christopher Moore could write a very funny book about the life of Jesus What is surprising that he’s able to make it so touching that even a cynical non believer such as myself could be moved by it By focusing in on the basic love thy neighbor concepts that Josh fiercely preaches Moore wrote a warm reminder of what Christianity is supposed to be about
