    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 live.So naturally, one of my favorite novels of the last ten years is a funny and touching book about the life of Jesus.Yeah, it was that kind of decade.The 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...

    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 read this book Nor should you really be using the internet there s just too much nasty Free Thinking out there Take your hands off the keyboard and back away slowly.Okay, that ll weed out the wusses Although, as I think about it, perhaps those are exactly the people who should be reading this book I m sorry for all the nasty stuff I said come on back Each time I read this, I love it For one thing it s Moore s best work, without question Not onl...

    What I remember from CCD It was Tuesday nights and that meant that I missed Who s the Boss All the really obnoxious cheerleaders went to my church Our Lady of Perpetual Help OLPH I had to go to CCD so I could get confirmed or I couldn t get married in a church so I was told every time I tried to feign an illness or a menstrual cramp We would be ushered into the school rectory thing where we had to choose 3 colored rings which represented 3 different classes we would attend things like Sacrifice and Abstaining during Lent 101 and Abstinence Just Do It and I would pick my colors hoping that I would get the class that the Michael J Fox look alike was teaching Sometimes we were given juiceThings I didn t learn from CCD What CCD actually stood for How to get married in a church How to be cool Anything about ChristSo, forgive me if I m enad by t...

    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 want to dust off your Lao Tzu, Kama Sutra, Bhagavad Gita, and sundry others It is actually quite interesting, as is the author s characterization of Mary Magdalene Maggie , John the Baptist and the disciples I found at times that I was getting bored, but stuck with it Recommended EXTRA STUFFLinks to the author s personal, Twitter and FB pages

    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 with laugh out loud results.Religion There are plenty of people who will never read this book but will nonetheless be very offended by it However, though it is an absurd comedy, it is like The Shack Where Tragedy Confronts Eternity and The Lost Years of Jesus Documentary Evidence of Jesus 17 Year Journey to the East in that it treats Jesus as a miraculous and gentle though powerful superhuman, and somewhat ironically, like the K...

    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 of disappointed Appointed Anyway, this was my first Christopher Moore book and the measuring stick against which his others are measured Biff s a great character, the regular guy accompanying Joshua aka Jesus on his adventures Jesus, of course, plays the ultimate straightman to Biff s jokes From when Biff told Jesus he was going to marry his mother when they were little tykes all the way to the end, Biff makes what could b...

    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 ve read everything Vonnegut ever wrote and I was than a little depressed that my days of reading new works by one of my favorite authors had come to a close This book alone marks Christopher Moore as the leading contender for that particular throne If not Vonnegut, then Douglas Adams Lamb tells the story of Jesus Christ, chronicling the missing years from 12 through 30 that the Bible itself fails to enlighten ...

    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 Considered Bah Witness the last lines paraphrased here The H in Jesus H Christ stands for Hallowed you know, Hallowed be thy name Oh I thought it stood for Harvey He saved that gem for the end of the book.

    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 mention Monty Python anywhere, but I d wager he s seen Life of Brian Whether he liked it, got it or appreciated it, I couldn t say, but it s a possible inspiration It doesn t have the clever wit or irony, or the sheer genius of Brian, but it does have the irreverant humour That aside, Lamb is a great story, made up but oddly plausible Keeping to the known facts and not interested in questioning your faith ...

    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 well trodden path and so the laughs just didn t come for this reader Certainly it was an enjoyable enough read It wasn t until the end that I had to push myself to finish what was becoming an increasingly dry, straight up retelling of Jesus crucifixion Prior to that, Moore takes a few popshots at other religions during the son of god s trek through self discovery and sometimes his aim is tru...
