Lamb, the novel that answers the all-important question: 'what if Jesus knew Kung Fu?' is pure hilarity from cover to cover.

Told through the perspective of Biff (who is Levi), Jesus' best friend and disciple, Christopher Moore does an outstanding job of filling in the missing years of the life of Jesus while somehow managing not to be too blasphemous, surprisingly non-contradictory to the Gospels, and very accurate historically (with the ironic exception of the bits about Buddhism).

Whether you know much about Jesus and The Bible, or you know nothing, this is a truly excellent book. My only problem with the book was trying to read it while shaking from fits of laughter.
