The Book of Murray

Forget everything you know about the Bible! The tongue-in-cheek tome The Book of Murray is a rather irreverent look at the Old Testament by self-proclaimed prophet Murray. He claims to have unearthed the Bible's missing book (much like the Dead Sea scrolls) in a sand trap at a golf course in Boca Raton. As the subtitle suggests, it contains "the life, teachings and kvetching of the lost prophet". Murray sets off with his disciple Lenny to spread the word. His life mirrors that of other prophets as he puts together psalms: "Thy fasting will not impress Him, neither will thy feasting, nor thy fasting then feasting then fasting, nor any other eating disorder". He is the recipient of The Ten (or so) Commandments: "Of the sandwiches, ye may eat of the cold cuts on rye with mustard or Russian dressing. But of the Potato-Chips-with-Miracle-Whip-on-Wonder Bread sandwich, ye shall not eat. For it is an abomination. And ye shall not eat it." I picked this book up to read it on the weekend, and finished it by Monday. I found it very entertaining and comical. No matter what your religious persuasion, you'll enjoy this book. I can hardly wait for the next one.
