Brilliant, irreverent, thought-provoking and totally refreshing...I loved it and snickered my way through it. ( )

Lamb: the Gospel According to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal, by Christopher Moore, is funny, touching, and a poignant version of what some view as “the greatest story ever told.” Let me state first that I am not a Christian, yet in reading this imagined version of the years between Jesus’s birth and crucifixion, I was drawn to the story in a way I had never felt drawn to it before. Jesus, aka Joshua, and Levi, aka Biff, share a discovery of sarcasm amid their boyhood adventures in search of the 3 wise men, humorously portrayed by Moore with a sense of affection. I enjoyed the characters’ use of sarcasm and their friendship with Mary Magdalene, aka Maggie, as well as their adventures in India and China. I loved Moore’s closing disclosure, which really sums up the point of the book: “This story is not and never was meant to challenge anyone’s faith; however, if one’s faith can be shaken by stories in a humorous novel, one may have a bit more praying to do.” I concur. 5 stars ( )

If one of the Gospels were a bromance/buddy journey written by/starring Seth Rogen, you would have this book. Definitely sacrilegious, but very funny, this book presents a fifth gospel detailing the "silent years" of Jesus' childhood/adulthood by his best friend, Levi who is called Biff. Resurrected by the angel Rakiel ("not the brightest halo in the bunch") and brought to present-day America, Biff is stuck in a hotel until he cranks out his story. The tale recounts how, in search of guidance for how to be the Messiah, Jesus (called Joshua -- his Jewish name) and Biff set off around the age of 12 to seek out the 3 Wise Men and see what they know of Josh's destiny. This takes them to Persia, China and India and they spend several years with each wise guy gaining ancient wisdom in Eastern philosophies and mind/body training. Biff, a buffoon at best, narrates and partakes in most of the (sexual) exploits which keeps a little of the taint off Jesus, but he does drop the f-bomb on more than one occasion. Obviously having no true basis whatsoever, this book does have a surprising amount of legit biblical references -- peppered in like little Easter eggs which is fun to discover. And the common link with world religions is not unfounded. The author did quite a bit of research in both geography and history and sets himself straight in an afterword that explains his approach. Moore also upends cultural norms -- like why Jewish people eat Chinese food on Christmas -- in a humorous, if far-fetched way. A little bit of seriousness goes a long way too -- "Mankind, I suppose is designed to run on -- to be motivated by -- temptation. If progress is a virtue, then this is our greatest gift. (For what is curiosity if not intellectual temptation? And what progress is there without curiosity?) On the other hand, can you call such a profound weakness a gift or is it a design flaw?....who is to blame ? Mankind, or a bad designer?" Josh returns to Nazareth in time for the wedding at Cana and then most events are familiar, if slightly twisted. Mary Magdalene (Maggie) plays a key role and other recognizable followers make an appearance as well. The ending is a bit abrupt and the book could've been about 100 pages shorter, but it was worth the laughs, though I felt slightly guilty -- surely laughing at the (fictional) life of Jesus is a sin?

"Lamb" is an incredibly compelling work even for readers who don't agree with Moore's conclusions. The book is also laugh out loud funny at times, which really helps during some of more irreverent parts of the story.
 
Interesting, original, not for every taste.
