Take a new journey through the Bible you thought you knew.
They may not be quite as you remember them, but each story in this ingenious collection—some whimsical, some serious—finds its roots in a close reading of the Bible and interpretations of it that originated centuries ago.
Take a look through God’s telescope and see how it all really happened: What was it like to be in Joseph’s sandals as his brothers sold him into Egyptian slavery? How did Esther use her pretty face as a tool to save the Hebrew people? And what in the name of … well, you know who … happened to the unicorns included on the ark’s original passenger manifest?
Your guide will be a sassy angel named Gabriella. The territory you cover will be familiar. But the questions and insights that these clever, profound stories will prompt you to grapple with—may surprise you.
Biblical characters explored include:
Adam • Eve • Cain • Abel • Noah • Sarah • Abraham • Isaac Jacob • Esau • Joseph • Moses • Jonah • Mordechai • Haman • Esther Ahasuerus • Naomi •  Ruth •Samson • Delilah • David
"Open[s] the heart and mind and tickle[s] our sense of humor."
Conservative Judaism Journal
“Thought-provoking.... Takes on the big questions of life.... Takes us on an adventure.... Fun to read, but offers serious messages throughout.... Bold ... [the] characters live courageously through [these] stories.”
Lutheran Woman Today
