A friend asks you to recommend a book: which book would you choose and why?

*hums to self* The bee-eye-bee-ell-ee, yes that's the book for me, I stand alone on the word of God, the bee-eye-bee-ell-ee...

Oh, hey, what're we doing? Book recs? Right, right, okay...

Well, personally, I'd have to rec a volume that's done a lot for me, you know, a book I found a lot of, comfort, in when I was goin' through some of the not-so-bright times. Book that could always lift my heart, make me smile.... book that spoke to me too, spoke to what I was dealing with right then.

Not just any book that'll do that. Got to be a little somethin' out of the ordinary. Something that has truths in it.

I get that not everybody will agree with it or think it's all true, either. That's, you know, that's up for debate, and I'm not gonna go around saying "it happened like this" or "no, no way, you got it all wrong." Human authors, you know? They do the best they can, with what they got, and if what they have at the end touches even one person, then that's something. And like I said, the book touched me. Your mileage may vary.

So all that being said, let me personally recommend my own, dog-eared copy of yet another version of the Greatest Story Ever Told:

Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal.
