Old Bible stopped working? Throw it away and try your luck with this one.** No WarrantyThe Alternative Bible Pocket Reader is a biblical parody that tackles the Jesus myth from several new perspectives. Stevolio is a surfer dude who was in it for the sex and the party. Jethro the White wasn't actually there, but he wrote afterward in order to promote the triumph of the white race, the glory of whiteness through white Jesus. The Gospel of Crazy Octavius commodifies he iconography and symbolism. Michael, lately of Palestine, assumes the power of the pulpit to promote xenophobia and Manifest Destiny. Mary Magdalene was Jesus' main squeeze, who insists on telling her story as a "Gospel," even though she is denied any standing in the church controlled by men. Several New Revelations are presented by the New Guy, who has assumed control of the scrolls.The Alternative Bible Pocket Reader is high satire. Read at your own risk.
