Product Description

A fresh, urban paraphrase of the Bible for our times Experience the Bible as performance art Straight from the streets of the UK For those who've never read the Bible, and for those who’ve read it "too much".
For those who've never read the Bible and for those who’ve read it too much. Lacey’s "dangerously real" retelling of Scripture vividly demonstrates that the Bible is packed full of stories, poems, and images that resonate with the big issues of today. This fresh paraphrase-come-running-commentary brings the text alive: Bible stories are retold as mini blockbusters; psalms as song lyrics; epistles as emails; Revelation as seen through a virtual reality headset. Out with stale religious terms, here’s a "Bible" which talks today’s language—gritty, earthy, and witty. Enough starting at Genesis with good intentions and getting lost in Leviticus-Lacey succeeds in revitalizing a classic work by focusing on the big picture: fast-forwarding through the "slow-moving" bits with pace, passion, and energy to make the Bible a page turner. Lacey’s tour de force was created during a remarkable personal journey through terminal cancer: the stuff Bible stories are made of. This life-experience injects Lacey’s take on Scripture with authenticity and authority—resonating with Bible characters who also wrestled with the big questions.
Purist alert: This is not THE Bible (capital B)… but it might just get you reaching for one.
