I love most of Christopher Moore's works (except the vampire ones) as they are sprinkled with enough historical fact, then interjected with a modern viewpoint and irreverent perception that they, besides being really clever and humorous, force you to view history from a different and more objective perspective. His satire is food for thought, and cause to rethink predigested lore of the ages.
Not possible in three words. I could write 3000 and it would not be enough. You have to experience this book.
God doesn't care about bacon.
A fantastic ability to audibly portray sarcasm or maybe that was irony, no...really I mean it.
Yes, but life gets in the way.
I am web designer and while I work I listen to audio books rather than music. I love historical fiction, sci-fi/fantasy, classics and books about spirituality.
I actually think he did a great job in making the story of Jesus entertaining but not irreverant. I found his take on things almost plausible even though they are a work of fiction. This book is not for someone that takes a hard line on religeon. You must be open and have a sense of humor to truly enjoy it.
I had not listened to him before but I thought he did a great job.
This is one of my favorite Christopher Moore books. It's sometimes a little too offhanded, but altogether thoughtful. I'm not a religious person, but even if you were I don't find this an offensive interpretation. It may be a little coarse (not for young readers!), but overall I found it to be endearing. Definitely enjoyable.

The narrators inflections were captivatingly interesting and humorous
The charactors angst and trepidations
yes but alas could not
Listen to this book its great
Christopher Moore took a sensitive subject and without coming down to extreme on either side created a laugh out loud masterpiece and Fisher Stevens is pitch perfect on the narration!
One of the very best. The performance is fantastic
I'm sure there are people who would be offended but I find this story refreshing and inspiring. And the humor is fantastic.
Fisher Stevens is brilliant with all his different inflections and interpretations of characters. I would love to hear more from him.
This is one of my favorite books of all time. The characters in this book instantly become friends that I find myself relating to on a daily basis. Mr. Moore has the uncanny ability to tug at the heart strings while making you laugh and smile in spite of yourself.
I have read this book numerous times, and when I saw the audio book I jumped with joy. The only problem was that I did not like Fisher Stevens narating this book at all. It honestly turned me off of the read more than a few times.
This book has many highs and lows, but all of them are well worth the listen.
YES I would, and I own the book too(it looks just like a bible). I bought it after I listened to the audio version. In fact I bought it from a seller right here on Amazon. Fisher Stevens is able to to bring each character to life, he gave them all their own distinct voice. He is very good at this kind of work and should stick with it. I hope it pays well.
I don't know of any other books that I could compare this one to, this book is able to use the old testament, myth,legend and humor to fill in the "missing years" of Jesus' life without changing the underlying moral character of the son of god, while creating a story that sounds completely plausible.
I have not, but I will be sampling more of his work here on Audible
Biff of course, he is the driver of this bus and ain't nobody getting his wheel time. Please don't get me wrong there are many memorable characters in this book like, "Maggie Magdalene" the girl that they both love. Raziel the angel who is addicted to daytime T.V.
I also loved how Mr. Moore was able to capture the raw unknowing wonder of childhood. Well Done!!
