Lamb:  The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal
My teaser this week is from Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal.

"[Jesus] was a pretty normal kid, for the most part. There was the trick he did with the lizard, and once we found a dead meadowlark and he brought it back to life, and there was the time, when we were eight, when he healed his brother Judah's fractured skull after a game of "stone the adulteress" got out of hand. (Judah could never get the knack of being an adulteress. He'd stand there stiff as Lot's wife. You can't do that. An adulteress has to be wily and nimble-footed.)"





Teaser TuesdayTeaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:


* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

  2. What a teaser! I've never read anything by this author, but I know a lot of people enjoy his books.

    BTW--I love your header picture.

  3. Thanks, Diane!

    Moore's humor isn't for everyone, and I'm sure this particular book would be offensive to quite a few people, but so far he's kept it funny without offending me. I like him a lot though, and tend to be pretty open-minded. I think. :-)
