Publisher's Summary

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-listen for anyone who wants to see past the fog of religious agendas and cultural debates to discover what the Bible really says.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Mixed feelings about this audio book

What did you like best about God Is Disappointed in You? What did you like least?

It was funny and irreverant in the way I had hoped but it could have been sharper. I wanted it to be as brilliant as Old Harry's Game by Andy Hamilton but it was a much gentler less astute take on the genre.


What does James Urbaniak bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I think the book would be better as it has pictures and a contents page.


Any additional comments?

The lack of chapter titles really annoys me with all audible books but none more so than this one. I had no idea where I was. I've read sections of the bible and was looking forward to hearing how they would be presented but most were completely missed out as far as I could tell. In fact some of the best material for humourous appraisal was shelved. However I do understand the whole point of the book was to cover it fast, still I did feel slightly disapointed. Overall I didn't not enjoy it.

lighthearted but informative, a great listen.

manages to breeze through a difficult topic with irreverence but a sincere desire to simply convey the ideas in a bloody inaccessible tome! well worth a listen. performer just a tad too american for my personal tastes, being a rather dry Brit, but otherwise superb.
