Synopses & Reviews
Everyone knows about the immaculate conception and the crucifixion. But what happened to Jesus between the manager and the Sermon on the Mount? In
this hilarious and bold new novel, the highly praised Christopher Moore shares the greatest story never told: the life of Christ as seen by his boyhood pal,
Just what was Jesus doing during the many years that have gone unrecorded in the Bible? Biff was there at his side, and now after two thousand years, he
shares those good, bad, ugly, and miraculous times. Screamingly funny, audaciously fresh, Lamb rivals the best of Tom Robbins and Carl Hiaasen, and is sure

"An instant classic...terrific, funny, and poignant." Rocky Mountain News
"[A]s in Moore's other books, the jokes, ranging from the sublime to the sophisticated to the utterly sophomoric, make the book. What Lamb lacks in theological sophistication it more than compensates with mirth....simply impossible not to laugh." John Green, Booklist
"In inventing his own conflicted, determined Jesus one who found His conviction one step at a time instead of emerging from the manger fully formed and ready to preach Moore is endlessly, wryly creative." Tasha Robinson, The Onion
"An audacious and irreverent novel...a bizarre mix of serious and sometimes brutal historical fiction laced with black humor, wordplay, in-jokes, and sharp one-liners worthy of a good stand-up comedian." Kirkus Reviews
