Publisher's Summary

The Bible offers some clues to God's personality - he's alternately been called vindictive and just, bloodthirsty and caring, all-powerful and impotent, capricious and foresighted, and loving and hateful. But no one has ever fully explored why God might be such a figure of contrasts. Nor has anyone ever satisfactorily explained what guides his relationship not just with angels, the devil, and his son, but also with all of creation. Might he be completely misunderstood, a mystery even to himself? Might his behavior and actions toward humankind tell us much more about him than it does about us? Enter the mind of the creator of the universe, travel with him through the heavenly highs and hellish lows of his story, from Genesis to Revelation, to better understand his burdensome journey: being God isn't easy. After hearing his story - at times troubling and tragic but always hilarious in its absurdity and divine in its comedy - you'll never look at a miracle or catastrophe - or at our place in the universe, or God's - the same way again.

Ever Wonder What God Was Thinking?

An excellent look into the Bible as a spectator. Chris Matheson takes you on a journey through the mind of Yahweh in a way only a nonbeliever could. What makes God tick? What was he thinking? What is his fascination with male genitals? These questions and many more are waiting in thin humorous romp through the Bible.

Hilarious unique take on the old time story

A look into the mind of the troubled creator, which helps to explain the inconsistencies of the bible and gods actions.

Liked how the author took a tour of the bible from beginning to end. Bringing up stories and events and spinning them into the narrative.

Only complaint is that it was not long enough. Wish this had been as long as the actual bible (minus the begats). Some of the stories (like Samson) were glossed over. Hope Chris does a series of these with more in depth stories focusing on some of the other characters.

A divine comedy

I loved this story; fun romp through core christian mythology and lots of in jokes for those who follow the apologetics. Mathesons narration is perhaps not five star; but the book is still enjoyable and there remains somthing special about a by the author reading.

His voice is ideal for listening to while sleeping as well, somehow therapeutic!!

Such a good idea

Brilliant. Points out lunacy in the Bible story that I had not noticed before. I have read it twice now. Surely this is destined to become a classic. It strikes me that it could be a great antidote to Christian indoctrination of young people. Entertaining and educational.

loved it!

Chris has done a great job putting a funny spin on an already ridiculous book. This is the version of the bible that should be preached.
