The Book of Kenrick Part VIII
In November 2011, I was called by my Uncle Godfrey—God the Uncle—to sum up the Bible in the voice of Kenrick, the kind of tess you would find on a building site who could lay a line of bricks straighter than a master mason and build two wooden door frames before the carpenter could do one, but still prefer to work as a labourer and sleep in the wheelbarrow until lunch. Kenrick and I have so far summarised Genesis Ch 1-11 and the Passion Play of the Gospel according to Matthew.
I’m doing a summation because the Bible contains too much pointless verbiage to translate all. I chose the King James Version because, as any God-fearing Pentecostal will affirm, the Word of God was standardised by a probably homosexual English monarch 1611 years after God first troubled Himself to send His only son with the message. Last day, Noah and his three sons had just spent a long weekend in Tobago, in Canaan, or maybe Pigeon Point, on the way to what might have been the first Promised Land, or the first time God promised it, anyway, where the pivotal figure of Abram enters the story. The Eighth Bit of the First Book of BC, called Kenrick The Book of Wandering, called GodSatNav (A Summation of Genesis, Chapters 12 & 13)
