That’s the Spirit

Cover_lamb_christophermooreThis month’s topic is humor. Thinking back at the books I’ve read, there is one book I can remember that made me absolutely laugh out loud. Maybe you’ve heard of it? It’s called LAMB: THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO BIFF by Christopher Moore. Take a look at the blurb:

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 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.

Even the church-goer in me found this to be tears-streaming-down-my-face funny. Just be warned, there are some rated PG (maybe even R) scenes in the book—mostly on the account of language. Still, I quite enjoyed this crazy tale Moore has spun.
