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.

3.0 Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal
I was SO FLIPPING EXCITED to read this book. After all my friends reviews and some of the little snippets that I had read I thought I would be rolling on the floor laughing when I read this book. Sometimes I forget that I have a very strange sense of humor and this book did not make me laugh like I ...

Just in time for Christmas! This is a delightfully irreverent look at Jesus H. Christ, through the eyes of his childhood friend, Biff.It covered Jesus through his childhood and adolescence (*especially* his childhood and adolescence!) to his death on the cross.I found it absolutely hilarious, and I...

3.0 Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal
I was deeply offended by this book. Christopher Moore waxes sacrilege in his book about Joshua (Jesus) and his best friend Biff. Though the book tackles many religions, there are some religions and some topics within those religions that are best left unmolested. It wouldn't hurt Moore to learn this...
