Author: Christopher Moore
Themes/Topics: Story of Jesus, Humor
I picked up this book on a whim and really enjoyed it. For some it certainly might seem a bit sacrilegious but Moore doesn't set up to turn religion on his head, but rather fills the gaps in Jesus' life as read in the Bible. I think even if you have a pretty health faith-life if you have a sense of humor you'll find the joy in this book.
I enjoyed reading about Jesus as a teen, and as a master of martial arts. Moore explains in the prologue that it should be taken for what its worth, and I found it to be entertaining and thought-provoking.
