About the Author
Comedian Paul Kerensa is one of the few to appear both at London's Comedy Store and on Radio 2's Pause for Thought. He writes for BBC TV and radio comedy, including the multi-award-winning Miranda and Not Going Out. As a stand-up, he won ITV1's Take The Mike award, and has taken five solo shows to the Edinburgh Festival, including Genesis , the basis of the enclosed pages. His first book So a Comedian Walks Into a Church was one of the Independent's top eight comedy books of 2013. He has no bellybutton, so no fluff.

Now for some that’s heresy and problematic. And so for some this title will feel like heresy and problematic! Paul Kerensa has a clear intent to serve up portions of scripture with power, insight and freshness. This is somewhat curiously achieved. Kerensa retells all the best-known stories through all manner of unexpected devices, including cartoons illustrations, movie scripts, family trees and even the Ikea instruction manual gets an outing. Puns, riddles, word tricks and more fill almost every line. It's got a twist of Milton Jones's maverick genius and Tim Vine's pace, and Jacob’s Creek and Jacobs Crackers wont ever be viewed again in the same light!
Light entertainment it is. Whether there will be sixty-five more, remains to be seen. It's afresh angle for those who might have grown weary or unwilling with the faithfulness of the text of scripture. Without seeking to caricature this title, it may be ideal for youth workers and others.
Theology, insight and creativity do mix well in this gag-fest but I’m still trying to resolve what to do with the aftertaste.
