Publisher's Description

It’s the story of the Bible as you’ve never heard it before: a fast-moving overview of the most published book in history, performed by author, actor, and award-winning broadcaster Rob Lacey. Inspired by the acclaimed book and based on the live performance seen by thousands in the UK, this CD provides a 60-minute tour of the whole Bible. It’s fast, insightful…even funny. The classic stories of Scripture are retold with vivid 21st century language—psalms as songs, the Gospels as one story, epistles as emails, and Revelation as seen through a virtual reality headset. It’s been described by one BBC producer as "storytelling at it’s very best."

Author Bio

Rob Lacey was a nationally known writer and performer and an award-winning broadcaster. He authored Are We Getting Through? and the street bible.

Editorial Reviews

'The Bible with street cred: Lacey has a refreshingly down-to-earth attitude to the Bible and a wry sense of humour.'
'Very different! It makes the Bible as easy to read as a tabloid newspaper. It's great fun if you know the Bible fairly well. But it's also, of course, aimed at people who've never ever opened it. And maybe we do underestimate just how difficult that is if you don't know where to start. I could read it all morning actually!'
'Aims to be a page turner and succeeds.'
'I read some of 'The Word on the Street' to the 250 people I was speaking to on Sunday morning. It got gasps and laughs and a spontaneous round of applause! Someone described it as 'The Message' with attitude. I had a long queue at the end wanting to know how to get a hold of a copy. It really is a brilliant piece of work.'
'On scholarly grounds...I found little to correct and much to praise. Rob helped me discover angry and sad voices in passages of the Bible that had left me indifferent before, and he made me laugh at other passages that were so familiar to me that I had never seen the healthy irreverence, humour and irony they expressed.'
