Overview

This is one of those 'must have' books.You should also make sure your school has a copy for use in RE lessons and assemblies.

Would you Adam and Eve it? Read how Jesus feeds five thousand geezers with just five loaves of Uncle Fred and two Lillian Gish. Or how Noah built a bloomin' massive nanny.

A very down-to-earth 'translation' that brings Scripture out of the pulpit and back onto the streets.

Author Mike Coles is Head of Religious Education at Sir John Cass's Church of England Secondary School in Stepney, East London. He hated RE when he was at school, and vowed that he would never make the children suffer as he had to! When he moved to the East End nearly 15 years ago, he immediately fell in love with Cockney rhyming slang and started to use it in his lessons. The children loved it, he decided to write down some of his stories and - well, here they are.

Mike's aim is for people to enjoy reading the Bible stories in this very down-to-earth version, and to help God's word reach out to those who wouldn't normally read the Bible but who may pick up a copy of this book.

'Puts the energy and passion back into the stories' The Archbishop of Canterbury.
