Hi you all, a book that is not my usual submission type. But I love This American Life and this was introduced on there so had to get it, smile.
Anyway it is up for anyone to proof. Please take the adult rating designation off.
ISBN: 978-1-59448-367-7 Title: Ladies And Gentlemen, The Bible! Author(s): Jonathan Goldstein Publisher: Penguin Group (USA) Incorporated Copyright Date: 2009 Copyrighted By: Jonathan Goldstein Brief Synopsis:A hilarious re-imagining of the heroes of the Old Testament for a modern world-and the neurotic, demanding reader. In the beginning. . . there was humor.
Long Synopsis:A hilarious re-imagining of the heroes of the Old Testament for a modern world-and the neurotic, demanding reader. In the beginning. . . there was humor. Sure, it's the foundation for much of Western morality and the cornerstone of world literature. But let's face it: the Bible always needed punching up. Plus, it raised quite a few questions that a modern world refuses to ignore any longer: wouldn't it be boring to live inside a whale? How did Joseph explain Mary's pregnancy to the guys at work? Who exactly was the megalomaniacal foreman who oversaw the construction of the Tower of Babel? And honestly, what was Cain's problem? In Ladies and Gentlemen, the Bible!, Jonathan Goldstein re-imagines and recasts the Bible's greatest heroes with depth, wit, and snappy dialogue. This is the Bible populated by angry loners, hypochondriacs, and reluctant prophets who fear for their sanity. Basically, a Bible that readers can finally, genuinely relate to.
Comments:I don't believe this book should be marked adult. It is not an adult topic, and the words that are used are words found in many modern books. Can you please change the adult designation to not marked adult. Beyond that should be a fairly easy proof. Blank pages are well illustrations I think. Page numbers are at the bottom of the page and some need to be filled in. Besides that should be easy, have read it through completely. Have fun. contact me if you need to at Juddysbuddy@xxxxxxxxxxxx
