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 this 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.

I know many people including some in my book group appreciate the fiction of Jesus' early life. I am a bit too conservative in my religious piety to appreciate this story. It is well written, it just isn't my cup of tea.

Get to know the real Jesus
This account explains much of what the gospels leave out. Humorous, irreverent, but in good taste.

After the hoopla this book has received, and the glowing and passionate reviews by many of my friends, I was disappointed. I found it amusing but laughed out loud only once or twice. An interesting take on a story we all know well, but definitely not a must-read. (I would recommend it only to friends I thought would really get a kick out of it.)
