The Bible in Limerick Verse Reviews

Sharp, funny, St Paul meets Edward Lear...and lives. Church Times I want to say to every reader of The Bible in Limerick Verse: Don't be in a hurry. Do not be deceived by the apparently simple approach that has been adopted. Give yourself time to read - perhaps to read aloud - to reflect, and to find for yourself the abiding truths that lie at the heart of our Christian faith. John Moses, Dean of St Paul's Cathedral A tour de force. Old wine into new bottles! How much easier it will be for us to remember the answers in the Catechism - the first step to living by them ... Professor Sir John Grimley Evans There can be few distinctly new takes on the familiar texts of the Bible but Christopher Goodwins' limerick version not only entertains but may provoke thought from a new point of view. Mr Goodwins' achievement is as improbable as it is impressive and engaging. Everyone will surely be diverted by it. Professor Dr Peter Goddard, former Master of St John's College, Cambridge The Limerick is a great English tradition, and these Limericks are full of wisdom and radiate fun. Lord David Owen
