You probably know that Luke wrote a gospel, but did you also know that his sources included memos to the angelic hosts, agony aunt letters, newspaper cuttings, interviews and even the diary of a concerned sheep? For the first time in nearly two thousand years, these and other, equally reliable, resource materials have been brought together to provide a fresh perspective on the life of Jesus. Have you ever wondered what the three wise men did before they were wise? Or how the disciples got on with their first attempts at spreading the word? What would the report card of a prepubescent Saviour of the world look like? And how did the local sheep feel about Jesus ultimate sacrifice? These and many other questions you have probably never asked are answered here.

A fun book, great cover. Leave it in the smallest room to lighten the atmosphere. Really clever cartoons and illustrations. Not one for theologicans but definitely one for those with a sense of humour. ~ , Christian Marketplace
This is an exceptionally funny book being, as it says on the front cover, â€œThe story of Jesus as told by the men, women and livestock whose lives he touched.â€ True, you do have to be pretty familiar with The Gospel according to Luke but, once that is under your belt, this is a must for every Christian loo! ~ , The Good Bookstall
The best kind of humour makes you laugh and think at the same time. The very best kind of humour makes you laugh first and then think, and then think a bit more. A Clean Camel is a Happy Camel is packed full of insights into the Gospel message. The amazing variety of methods for telling the story: cartoons, memos, telegrams, letters, newspaper reports, adverts, agony aunt columns, even the Yellow Pages, keeps the journey through the book fresh and constantly brings the temptation to read just one more bit! In the best traditions of humour it is sometimes close to the edge, but in a way that gets you thinking about why, and more importantly about God and his grace shown towards us in the outrageous love of Jesus. It is also a book which will work with so many ages: Fun for the young and with layers of meaning for those who have known the story longer. Great Fun! ~ Rev.
