Winter Book Series: Lamb – The Gospel According to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal by Christoper Moore
February 12 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
The birth of Jesus has been well chronicled, as have his glorious teachings, acts, and divine sacrifice after his 30th 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 the 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. (Amazon review)
Our next book discussion will begin in November with monthly selections that include faith-intersecting topics and stories. Discussions will be from 5:30 to 6:30pm at Lakewood Panera (14701 Detroit Ave) to accommodate participants with ability to get dinner, snack or drink as desired or demanded by their schedule. The church will keep at least two books for each discussion that can be purchased or borrowed in advance. Discussions will be facilitated by Pastor Kelly.
