Publisher's Description

This is a story of dreaming big and working hard, of spectacular success and breathtaking failure, of shouted questions, and, at long last, whispered answers. With trademark wit and heart, Phil Vischer shares how God can use the death of a dream to point us toward true success.

Larry. Bob. Archibald. These VeggieTales stars are the most famous vegetables you'll ever eat. Oops, meet. Their antics are known around the world. But so much of the VeggieTales story hasn't been told. In Me, Myself, and Bob, Phil Vischer, founder of Big Idea and creator of VeggieTales, gives a behind-the-scenes look at his not-so-funny journey with the loveable veggies. From famed creator to bankrupt dreamer, Vischer shares his story of trial and ultimate triumph as God inspired him with one big idea after another.

    I enjoyed this book immensely. If you've seen any of Phil's work, you can guess that his wit and humor are laced throughout his tale, even though there were some very painful episodes during the rise and fall of Big Idea Productions. I skimmed several paragraphs in the early chapters describing the technical aspects of computer animation, but the book still read smoothly for that. The lessons he shares at the end of the book are so powerful for anyone, but I found them especially relevant as an author.

    One of my favorite quotes: "God has taught me to focus not on results, but on obedience. Not on the destination, but on the journey."

    Another one: "Beware of your dreams, for dreams make dangerous friends. . . Dreams are, I believe, misplaced longings. False lovers. Why? Because God is enough."

    At times I couldn't put it down at other times I had to put it down so I could do other things. If you want to serve Jesus this book is for you. Eleanor Roosevelt once said, "Learn from the mistakes of others. You can't live long enough to make them all yourself." Learn from Phil Vischer's mistakes and what he learned.

    This book has been shared with our whole family, adults and teens especially. It is written with humor and absolute candor on Phil Vischer's part. Reading it has lead to some meaningful conversations between parents and their teens. Some important life lessons revealed and examined here. I highly recommend it.

    I bought this book for someone else after hearing Phil Vischer on a radio interview. The young man (college student) that I purchased it for quickly read the book from cover to cover. The book had a profound impact on him, and I can't wait to read it next. Phil's story was so inspirational and encouraging that the young man emailed Phil to tell him how it encouraged him, and Phil even wrote back!

    This book gives all of us who want to make entertainment for the Lord come to grips with God's plans which are superior to our plans. "A man's mind plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps." Proverbs
