The Book of Everything

The Book of Everything - Guus Kuijer,  John Nieuwenhuizen "Have you read The Book of Everything?" asked Sarah. "You might like it."

Manny said that he didn't usually read translated books. But he politely opened it and read the first page, and then the second page. Pretty soon he had read a whole lot of pages. He tried to imagine what it sounded like in Dutch, and he could almost hear the words.

"Shouldn't you be working?" asked someone.

"I've almost finished," said Manny without looking up. He wanted to find out if Jesus would stop Thomas's father from hitting his mother. It didn't look too good, but sometimes Jesus can surprise you. He is a very tricky person.
