Review: Tales of the Pirate Gospel by Andrew Moody

Tales of the Pirate Gospel: A somewhat free retelling of the Gospel of Mark - Andrew Moody

This here be the Gospel of Mark retold in pirate-ese... and it is amusing and clever.  I enjoyed the graphic elements, the dialogue and the rewording of parables into pirate tales - though I discovered a heretofore unknown saturation point for pirate lingo.

 

Theologically sound (as far as I could tell, not being a theologian but having a lifetime of familiarity with the source material), this would be a great read-aloud for younger children.
