Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal - Christopher Moore I won't agree that Moore is like Douglas Adams or Kurt Vonnegut but he's definitely found his own niche in the world of written humour. I like his niche. It belongs in the church of Josh with it's gospel according to Biff.I often wondered what Jesus (Josh) had done in those missing years and I think this is just as possible as anything else. That the story is told by his best friend Levi aka Biff is a nice twist. What first endeared me to Biff was learning that he invented sarcasm. How can you not love that?This tale is both irreverent and reverent and that's a pretty fine line to walk. Moore does it well and whether you are religious or not there is good story told here. Keep an open mind and you may glean a bit as well as have a lot of good chuckles.
