The Kiwi Bible

Author(s): Chris Grantham

NZ Non Fiction

Story of the life and work of Jesus, taken mainly from the Gospels of Mark, and retold in twenty-first century Kiwi vernacular.Its been called the greatest story ever told - or in Kiwi, a seriously good yarn. That bloke Jesus turned out to be a pretty interesting character with plenty to say that's still relevant today. But pick up your average Bible and its language is light-years away from the stuff we speak in Godzone. Here for the first time, the Bible (well, bits of it) makes its appearance in Kiwi - the stories are the same, it's just the telling that's different. Chris Grantham leads the New Zealand branch of an interanational Christian development agency. Based in Auckland, he gets out and about around New Zealand with his speaking and writing, along with some stand-up comedy here and there. After a couple of speaking tours to South Africa, Chris is thinking of putting 'noted international speaker' on his CV. He's married to Jocelyn, has a couple of grown-up kids, and in previous lives was an accountant and schoolteacher.
