A new spin on the origins of Christianity. The character of "Biff" is a guy we all know; The "live in the moment-say it now or wish you had later-no regrets" lovable pig who constantly gets us into trouble, yet is our most true & loyal friend. By far the funniest book I’ve read.

Lamb is an entertaining, tongue-in-cheek depiction of the life of Jesus, as told through the eyes of his best friend Levi (Biff). More than merely a retelling, it fills in the missing years of Jesus’ life between birth and messiahhood. Who knew he’d spent time studying in India and China? All your favorite Holy Family members, disciples and apostles make appearances, including Mary Magdalene (Maggie). It didn’t quite live up to my lofty expectations -- I didn’t fall out of bed laughing -- but great fun for anyone with a sense of humor, regardless of beliefs.

This is a tale about the trials and tribulations missed in the Bible, as told by Jesus Christ's best friend, Biff. Biff has been resurrected in modern times to document these lost stories of half-resurrected corpses, abominable snowmen, and Chinese food. Be prepared to laugh out loud as Biff takes you from Nazareth to the East and back again in this familiar, but reimagined tale.

“If you have come to these pages for laughter, may you find it. If you are here to be offended, may your ire rise and your blood boil. If you seek an adventure, may this song sing you away to blissful escape. If you need to test or confirm your beliefs, may you reach comfortable conclusions. All books reveal perfection, by what they are or what they are not. May you find that which you seek, in these pages or outside them. May you find perfection, and know it by name.” This is how Christopher Moore begins Lamb, foreshadowing the book ahead. It follows Levi Bar Alpheas, called Biff, as he learns and grows with Joshua bar Joseph, called the Christ. Sometimes pensive, sometimes baffling, but always hilarious, Lamb is perfect for people just looking to laugh OR looking to test their faith.
