Description

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.

  • 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!!

    Fantastic. Humorous, fun, and exciting - and much easier to read than the widely accepted biblical version.
