Reading Allowed

God is Disappointed In You by Mark Russell and Shannon Wheeler

Monday • February 24 • 6pm

The book store cafe fireside

Laugh your way through the Bible.

Get to know one of the worlds most influential books in this wildly entertaining crash course for dummies, frank and funny and whiplash smart, written with grace by a former Sunday School teacher who decided to tell it like it is, laced with New Yorker-style cartoons and lovingly published in true prayerbook style.

Its laugh-out-loud humor is balanced with serious Biblical knowledge and respect, as it summarizes each of the Big Books 66 books down to their essence.

Call it a modern day Cliffs Notes to the Bible. Call it hilarious literary criticism. Whatever you call it, dont loan it – youll never get it back.

Join our own resident writer, Nick DiMartino, for a lively discussion of this month's selection. Book club members save 20% when you purchase this title at our University District Store.
