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

From the Inside Flap:

Eve bent down and picked up the fruit. Its sweet smell suffused her from the top of her head to the soles of her feet. She wanted to eat it, she really did, but she was afraid. Snake did not utter another word. The angels held their breath ....
—from "The Triumph of Eve"

Many people were taught and remember only a one-dimensional Bible. For example, the story of Adam and Eve teaches the penalty for disobedience, while "beware of jealousy" is the lesson of Cain and Abel.

These engaging retellings are the antidote to all this—they’re witty, often hilarious, always profound, and invite you to grapple with questions and issues that are often hidden in the original text.

"Matt Biers-Ariel invites us to explore life’s big questions through his innovative and entertaining retelling of biblical stories. He will make you laugh and make you think!"
—Rabbi Sandy Eisenberg Sasso, author of Adam & Eve’s First Sunset: God’s New Day
