By Mary Lee Wile

Go to catalog
"A highly effective expression of a mighty struggle going on in nearly every modern woman's soul. Imaginatively portrayed in a no-holds-barred dialogue between the raw, unassuageable pain/rage of Elizabeth (mother of John the Baptist) and the deep patient loving trust in God's will of Mary (mother of Jesus), nine years after the violent deaths of their two sons."

Lamb: the Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal

By Christopher Moore

Go to catalog
"The birth of Jesus has been well chronicled, as have his glorious teachings, acts, and divine sacrifice after his thirtieth birthday. But no one knows about the early life of the Son of God, the missing years - except Biff.
"Ever since the day when he came upon six-year-old Joshua of Nazareth resurrecting lizards in the village square, Levi bar Alphaeus, called 'Biff,' had the distinction of being the Messiah's best bud. That's why the angel Raziel has resurrected Biff from the dust of Jerusalem and brought him to America to write a new gospel, one that tells the real, untold story. Meanwhile, Raziel will order pizza, watch the WWF on TV, and aspire to become Spider-Man."
