'Cos they didn't
Adam and Eve it
When God said 'Oi!
Apple – leave it!

This innovative collection of Bible stories, written in cockney rhyming slang, is a fresh and fun approach to learning about the Bible. From Adam and Eve to the Resurrection, the book presents well-known stories in an original and accessible way for everybody to enjoy.

The stories are ideal for performance or equally for personal use. They can be used as a form of interactive group storytelling, using a call-and-response method in which a line is read out and is repeated by everyone in the group. They are also very effective as a way of accessing literacy with people who may not read or write, and individuals with learning disabilities. The stories are easy to read and include translations of slang words.

Through rhythm and rhyme, Bible Stories in Cockney Rhyming Slang enables everyone to access and understand stories from the Bible regardless of their level of literacy.
