ዯ Read Imitation Leather [ ಲ Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal ] ፀ E-Pub Author Christopher Moore ፼ ዯ Read Imitation Leather [ ಲ Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal ] ፀ E-Pub Author Christopher Moore ፼ While the Bible may be the word of God, transcribed by divinely inspired men, it does not provide a full or even partial account of the life of Jesus Christ Lucky for us that Christopher Moore presents a funny, lighthearted satire of the life of Christ from his childhood days up to his crucifixion in Lamb The Gospel According to Biff, Christ s Childhood Pal This clever novel is surely blasphemy to some, but to others it s a coming of age story of the highest order. Joshua a.k.a Jesus knows he is unique and quite alone in his calling, but what exactly does his Father want of him Taking liberties with ancient history, Moore works up an adventure tale as Biff and Joshua seek out the three wise men so that Joshua can better understand what he is supposed to do as Messiah Biff, a capable sinner, tags along and gives Joshua ample opportunities to know the failings and weaknesses of being truly human With a wit similar to Douglas Adams, Moore pulls no punches a young Biff has the hots for Joshua s mom, Mary, which doesn t amuse Josh much Don t let anyone ever tell you that the Prince of Peace never struck anyone And the origin of the Easter Bunny is explained as a drunken Jesus gushes his affection for bunnies, declaring, Henceforth and from now on, I decree that whenever something bad happens to me, there shall be bunnies around. One small problem with the narrative is that Biff and Joshua often do not have distinct voices A larger difficulty is that as the tone becomes somber with Joshua s life drawing to its inevitable close, the one liners, though not as numerous, seem forced True to form, Lamb keeps the story of Joshua light, even after its darkest moments Michael FerchA childhood pal of the savior is brought back from the dead to fill in the missing 30 year gap in the Gospels in Moore s latest, an over the top festival of sophomoric humor that stretches a very thin though entertaining conceit far past the breaking point The action starts in modern America, specifically in a room at the Hyatt in St Louis, where the angel who shepherds Levi who is called Biff has to put Christ s outrageous sidekick under de facto house arrest to get him to complete his task Moore Bloodsucking Fiends gets style points for his wild imagination as Biff recalls his journey with Jesus dubbed Joshua here according to the Greek translation into and out of the clutches of Balthasar, then into a Buddhist monastery in China and finally off to India, where they dabble in the spiritual and erotic aspects of Hinduism The author gets serious in his climax, offering a relatively straightforward, heartfelt account of the Passion and Christ s final days that includes an intriguing spin on how the Resurrection might have happened The Buddhist and Hindu subplots seem designed to point out the absurdity and excesses of religious customs, but none of the characters are especially memorable, and eventually both plot and characters give way to Biff s nightclub patter As imaginative as some of this material is, the sacrilegious aspects are far less offensive than Moore s inability to rein in his relentless desire to titillate, and his penchant for ribald, frat boy humor becomes annoying as the book progresses Moore has tapped into organized religion for laughs before, but this isn t one of his better efforts Agent, Nick Ellison Author tour Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information, Inc.
