Item description for Best of Blue by Lionel Blue...

A child of poor Jewish parentage, educated in the roughest part of the East End of London, Lionel Blue worked his way through Balliol College, Oxford and the Rabbinate to become a star of radio and stage. His 'Thought for the Day' broadcasts enchanted and invigorated millions of listeners. The Rabbi's humour became celebrated, making it even a regular feature of Private Eye," the satirical magazine, and his opening gambit of 'Good morning Peter, good morning Sue and good morning everyone' became famous. This new collection of the best of Lionel Blue's writings sparkles with his characteristic and idiosyncratic humour. It is through this that his profound wisdom has touched the hearts and minds of millions of appreciative listeners. The book sparkles with Lionel Blue's characteristic, idiosyncratic humour and profound wisdon. Blue's whole range of writing - To Heaven with Scribes and Pharisees, cookery, Jewish jokes, the Blue Guide to Eternity and Jewish Prayer Books for High Days and Holy Days - is represented in this charming new collection.

Reviews - What do customers think about Best of Blue?

Blue makes 'the blues' leave - in any religion!  Sep 16, 2008
I have loved Rabbi Blue from the very first time I heard this funny and clever man speak on the radio in London [England] back in the 80's. I am a mixture of beliefs: born a protestant, schooled by catholics, taken to synagogue by friends, a some-time pagan leaning towards buddhism. I actually saw Rabbi Blue one day in Finchley, while racing back to a class I was taking: I recognized him from all the fly-covers of his books I'd read [kitchen blues, bolts from the blue, the blue guide to the here and hereafter.....] he was not too tall and a bit round, smiling, and my impulse was to just throw my arms around him and thank him for all the wonderful insights into life and cooking and religions and the soothing effect of chocolate!
I didn't, and it's one of my regrets in this life.
Do yourself a HUGE favor, and read this or any one of his books: it matters not what your faith is, he has a wonderful heart, humanity and sense of humor!
