Limericks are, like the Bible, often funny and sometimes obscene. They shock us. They surprise us. They're not usually considered fitting for polite conversation. But perhaps the Bible has been tamed, has been polished of its rough edges. So let's take the Bible out of polite conversation and let it shock and surprise us again.
Jeff Carte was, for eighteen years, a minister of the gospel as an officer in The Salvation Army. Now he's trying to figure out what it means to be a minister of the gospel as a fork-lift driver. He is the author of Muted Hosannas.
Jeff Carter's cleverly conceived and brilliantly executed retelling of Scripture through the form of limericks is a delight to read and a joy to recommend.
---Jim West, Ming Hua Theological College, Lecturer in Biblical Studies and Church History
'For those who need a great laugh, Jeff Carter's limericks offer readers a lyrical romp through the Bible that ranges from the prophetic to the profane and even bits of profanity.'
---Becky Garrison, author of Jesus Died for This?
