Dear Mr. Coles. Just to say how much I've enjoyed reading the Bible in Cockney. Like the children in school, I found reading the Bible boring, but you have changed that. It makes it a lot more fun, and the illustrations are great. Even my Dad who's 83 enjoyed rteading some of it and is going to get a copy. Good luck to you with the book. Best wishes, Pat Arnott

Well I never guv, this as got to be the best way of putting the Bible across to the Masses. it is both funny and educational with the highlight being the Cockney version of The Lord's Prayer.

Well done Mike

I'm sorry for you, Rose.
The bible, though fascinating reading, is a load of mistranslations, censorship and errors.
From ancient Hebrew, thereon - with many gaps, mostly deliberate - to Jesus's native language (Syriac) Aramaic, through Greek, Latin, Italian, mediaeval & modern versions of all these as well as English, etc. wherever & when-soever it was inconvenient to whatever "church" happened to be extant at any given time, was censored/omitted/circumvented or re-translated to suit the religious arbiters of that particular time.
Also censorship, by the Catholic Church, around the time of the renaissance, made such stuff inevitable.
The bible is, though fascinating reading, nothing more than documented superstition!
By the way, have you read Ezekiel's vision of a helicopter? Chapter 1? Aliens? Dunno!
Anyway, I've ordered it!

A great book. It's fun but not offensive. I often use little bits of it to read to my church youth group, to get across familiar stories in a new way. But, even if you're not a Christian, the Bible is full of great stories and this is definitely a great way to read them!

The Bible in Cockney: Well Bits of it, Anyway....: well written and compiled, brings the stories alive and up to date in a fun and unique way, great book bought as a gift but we sneakily read bits before wrapping it up and enjoyed it too!

Being an "east-ender" by birth, I thoroughly enjoyed this book, although some of the 'rhyming slang' was a bit up-to-date, and not as I remember it.

That is the first time I've met the cockney, not only short phrases, but whole sentences. I'm impressed. I've allways been interested in why Englishmen couldn't understend each other. Now i know why that happens.

This is HILARIOUS - I have a colleague who is a cockney and get him to read it out; it's brilliant and so funny (and as long you don't get offended by the terminology given its subject, a great gift).
