Would you Adam and Eve it? Read how Jesus feeds five thousand geezers with just five loaves of Uncle Fred and two Lilian Gish. Or how Noah built a bloomin' massive nanny. A very down-to-earth 'translation' that brings scripture out of the pulpit and back on to the streets.

The Bible In Cockney Summary

The Bible In Cockney: Well bits of it anyway by Mike Coles

Would you Adam and Eve it? When Mike Coles first moved to the East End of London to teach RE at Sir John Cass's Church of England Secondary School in Stepney, he was delighted to come across Cockney rhyming slang for the first time. To liven up his lessons, he started to write Cockney versions of some of the Bible stories he used - and the children loved it. Mike went on to publish some of these very down-to-earth 'translations' with BRF, to help God's word reach out to those who wouldn't normally read the Bible but who just might pick up a copy of this book! As well as the Lord's Prayer in Cockney and the whole of Mark's Gospel, this book includes selected Old Testament stories - Noah and 'is big nanny goat, Joseph the currant of Jacob and Rachel, David and that huge geezer Goliath, and more. And if it's all a bit confusing, there's a helpful glossary at the back of the book!

The Bible In Cockney Reviews

'It certainly is a good laugh while imparting the essential message of the Bible.' Reverend Stan in The Badge, the London cab drivers' newspaper
