Publisher's Description

Well-known storyteller Ralph Milton is at it again: biblical characters come to life in his book, Is This Your Idea of A Good Time, God? This retelling of 23 biblical stories will move you to laughter and tears, and bring new insights into characters like Eve and Adam, Hagar, Jacob, Naaman, Peter, Pontius Pilate, and Mary of Magdala. Each story is prefaced with biblical and historical background. Use these stories as preaching materials, private meditations, or with Bible study groups. A guide is included at the back of the book for leading Bible studies for adults.
