It is perhaps inevitable that this book is like a jar of Christian Marmite... either loved or loathed. I have been ploughing through it for the past few days, and I find myself edging ever-closer to a five-star review, but drawing back for fear of offending others who MIGHT not be as blissed out over this new bible interpretation as I am! Rob takes the Bible, gives it a good shakeout (a runover with a Dyson perchance... ) and rewrites for a generation betwixt the old fogies and the adoptees of wilful patois (innit??). Yes, some parts of the original text are missing, but some parts of the Bible are wilfully repetitive and cross-referenced to the nth. I am happy with an edition that has wit, verve and some real punch to it. Paul's letters come across with real drive, as opposed to the recent bible versions, and having someone make Revelations readable (Oi, John the Divine, were those magic mushrooms you were chowing down on it Patmos?) is as... er... revelatory as finding someone who understands Finnegan's Wake (not a book to be tossed aside lightly, it should be HURLED with great force!). I'm not going to insist that people go out and buy and read this, as that would, perforce, make me a real God-botherer, and if you've read my review of "Mission", you will know that I am not one for being a troll-evangelist. I can, however, heartily recommend it for those of a Tom Clancy persuasion, who can allow a fresh breeze to pass between their ears on an odd occasion. Now, go on, look up my review of "Mission"!!
