Why did I love this book?
Lamb is subtitled "The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal"—which gives it away. As does the cover of the Harper edition (2002). This was one of the first of Christopher Moore's novels that I read (the guy's hilarious), and it remains my favourite, by far. Just one chapter in... "he healed his brother Judah's fractured skull after a game of 'stone the adultress' got out of hand..."
