Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff

{4.5/5} “It’s wildly irritating to have invented something as revolutionary as sarcasm, only to have it abused by amateurs.”

Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal by Christopher Moore, published in 2002

It’s been decided that it’s time for Biff to tell his story — he was a friend of Jesus when they were kids. Jesus and Biff head out on a years-long journey to find the three wise men and learn from them. It turns out Biff is the person who invented sarcasm. You get a fairly realistic picture of what life was like 2000 years ago, and you also get some outrageous humour.
