Ladies and Gentlemen, The Bible!

Ladies and Gentlemen, The Bible by Jonathan Goldstein is a sly retelling of well-known bible stories with an added twist to each. It’s a quick, easy, fun, clever read that will elicit more than a few chuckles as well as moments of tender insight. Comedy is the central mode of storytelling with these short stories and modernized parables as King David is cast as a wannabe comedian, the architect behind the Tower of Babel is a slick-talking huckster, and Noah a paranoid bully. Goldstein deftly manages to walk the fine line between irreverence and sacrilege without missing a step.
