A controversial and highly humorous new presentation of classic incidents in the Bible.
With all the word plays and cheeky sensationalism of a tabloid newspaper, The Tabloid Bible, is a retelling of the Bible that’s a lot of fun. From ‘Arking Mad!’ – Father of Three Builds Bumper Boat in his Backyard’ to ‘Eunuch Calls for Cut’ this is a lighthearted look at the world’s most popular publication.
‘Did Aliens Cause Multi-Chariot pile up?’ asks The Scroll when the Damascus Road was closed after Saul’s blinding experience.
Nick Page has been careful not to question the authenticity of the Bible, but he does consider it robust enough to stand up to some affectionate humour. Complete with an agony aunt, the weather and sport (chariot racing tips of course), The Tabloid Bible, makes a great Christmas gift.
Can you understand this strap line ‘Dream Reader Gets Top Post’? And what other headline could be used for the three Old Testament characters who survived being thrown into a fiery furnace: ‘Phew – not a scorcher.’
