Back Cover

Why is the Bible the Most Purchased Book in the World ... and the Least Read? No Cartoons!

A parable is a simple story illustrating a religious principle. The Cartoon Old Testament uses cartoons as visual parables to illustrate the scripture in a humorous and memorable way. Each scripture passage also has "musings" which provide further insight and perspective.

Reading through the Old Testament can be tedious and daunting at times, but this cartoon-based commentary is fun, entertaining and informative. Here are just a few of the things you'll learn from this book:

  • Is Elijah overly concerned with cakes?
  • Does Ruth have a foot fetish?
  • Was Joseph a spoiled brat?
  • Did Jonah have a bad attitude?
  • Does David prove Samuel correct about kings?
  • Just how tall was Ezekiel?
  • What kind of truck does Jacob drive?
  • Did God design the first interstate highway?
  • Can sheep really use calculators?
  • What's Job's problem?
  • Was Zephaniah in a rock 'n' roll band?
  • How many animals went with Noah on the ark?
  • Does Isaac like camping?
  • What is Moses' favorite kind of water?
  • Was creation really God's 3rd grade science fair project?
