Publisher's Summary

It’s the story of the Bible as you’ve never heard it before: a fast-moving overview of the most published book in history, performed by author, actor, and award-winning broadcaster Rob Lacey. Inspired by the acclaimed book and based on the live performance seen by thousands in the UK, this recording provides a 60-minute tour of the whole Bible. It’s fast, insightful...even funny. The classic stories of Scripture are retold with vivid 21st century language - psalms as songs, the Gospels as one story, epistles as emails, and Revelation as seen through a virtual reality headset. It’s been described by one BBC producer as “storytelling at it’s very best”.

Critic Reviews

"[Lacey's] is a blunt and sometimes gritty retelling of the Bible, which he performs splendidly. A skilled storyteller, he is energetic and expressive. The musical interludes, songs, and accompaniment are a fine complement to the story." (AudioFile)

Manga for the Ears

A great review of the whole of the bible from Genesis to Revelation, and very entertaining.
Shows a good understanding of the matter.
I found the Revelation particularly good.
