Publisher Description

Everyone knows about the immaculate conception and the crucifixion. But what happened to Jesus between the manger and the Sermon on the Mount? In this hilarious and bold novel, the acclaimed Christopher Moore shares the greatest story never told: the life of Christ as seen by his boyhood pal, Biff.

Just what was Jesus doing during the many years that have gone unrecorded in the Bible? Biff was there at his side, and now after two thousand years, he shares those good, bad, ugly, and miraculous times. Screamingly funny, audaciously fresh, Lamb rivals the best of Tom Robbins and Carl Hiaasen, and is sure to please this gifted writer’s fans and win him legions more.

Not Everyone's Cup of Tea, But a Great Read

I picked up this book after having it recommend to my by a coworker. He warned me that it may be a bit offensive if I was religious at all, I said I wasn't so I'd give it a try.

The second I picked up this book I was sucked in. I was brought up catholic so I already knew the basis in which the story was based on, which made it even funnier. It weaves "fact" in with fiction really well, making the time line and story believable.

I was laughing the whole way thought the book. The author is a amazing writer and I would definitely recommend this book for friends and family.

I wouldn't suggest this book to anyone who is really religious. Although this book isn't mocking the bible, it does have quiet a bit go swearing and some graphic descriptions.

I have read this book more a few times and will read it a few more. Even if this is the only book you ever read by Moore you will enjoy every page and chapter. But another great Moore book is practical demon keeping!!
