Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

God Is Disappointed in You is for people who would like to read the Bible... if it would just cut to the chase. Stripped of its arcane language and interminable passages, every book of the Bible is condensed down to its core message, in no more than a few pages each.

Written by Mark Russell with cartoons by New Yorker cartoonist Shannon Wheeler, God Is Disappointed in You is a frequently hilarious, often shocking, but always accurate retelling of the Bible, including the parts selectively left out by Sunday School teachers and church sermons.

Irreverent yet faithful, this book is a must-read for anyone who wants to see past the fog of religious agendas and cultural debates to discover what the Bible really says.

Review:

"God Is Disappointed in You accomplishes an impressive goal: it takes the holy book — as inscrutable and culturally significant as it is — and makes it readable." Rebecca Kelley, The Rumpus

Review:

"The Bible itself may be timeless, but, with its playful ribbing and wit, God Is Disappointed in You is most certainly a book made for this moment." Brian Martin, Culture Mass

Review:

"A hilarious book that's often shocking, sometimes blasphemous, but always funny with a huge heart. This is Sunday School for the information age." Brett Schenker, Graphic Policy

Review:

"God Is Disappointed in You cuts to the heart of the matter, and sometimes down to the funny bone, to translate the Bible into terms that allow a modern reader to understand the wild, weird, and wonderful 'essence' of the Good Book." The Big Think

Five stars and an exclamation point! I want to give a copy of this book to everyone I know, whether I like them or not, and some people I don't know. Mark Russell has managed to condense the Bible, taking out all of that dry, dusty language that makes reading the Bible such a daunting task. God is Disappointed in You is its essence.
