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 this 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.

Moore's books are like sipping helium -- they make the simplest things funny and the burden of life lighter for just a little while. Raised as a Catholic, I thought the many paradoxes and eccentricities of the Bible would shine with a good-humored light in this book. And so they do. What I wasn't expecting was that along with the schtick, scatology, the satire would be a deeper interest and sympathy with the story itself. Moore takes the time to sift out some of the historical details and write a story that, behind the jokes, is a deeply humane consideration of what daily life might have been for Jesus -- and his best friend. As with the musical 'Jesus Christ Superstar', you come away from the telling of Christ's life not with a more superficial but rather a more visceral, thoughtful reaction to the events of that time. The music and the humor work with the plot -- not against it. Highly recommended.

This book is so fun and this is one of the only authors I find myself laughing out loud to when reading any of his books. The only way I can describe this book is: Lamb is to the bible what Wicked is to Wizard of Oz. Fun, fun, fun and very creative. Kudos Mr. Moore! Do yourself a favor and read this book. It's great!
