In their first collaboration, God Is Disappointed in You, Mark Russell & Shannon Wheeler’s faithful-yet-irreverent approach to the Bible sparked an instant connection with readers of all backgrounds. Now, by popular demand, they turn their attention to the parts left out of the canonical Bible, including the Midrash, the Apocrypha, the Gnostic Gospels, and more.
Think of these as the DVD extras to the holy scripture: missing scenes, alternate versions of familiar stories, and long-lost strangeness from Biblical times.
This is what the Bible didn’t tell you. And there’s more to the story than you can imagine.

“Mr. Russell and Mr. Wheeler have used irreverence to win an audience for what is actually a slyly empathetic retelling of Bible stories.” — The New York Times
“As soon as I started reading it, I was hooked… The Bible is an incredibly weird book, and I thank Mark Russell for rewriting it in a way that made it understandable and interesting.” — Boing Boing
