‘God Is Disappointed in You’ by Mark Russell and Shannon Wheeler

"God Is Disappointed in You" by Mark Russell.

"God Is Disappointed in You" by Mark Russell.

The genesis of “God Is Disappointed In You” (Top Shelf) was a conversation over drinks between Portland, Ore., residents Mark Russell and Shannon Wheeler. That might tell some people all they need to know about this irreverent take on the Bible. Russell, who grew up reading the Bible, spent three years summarizing it; Wheeler, whose work has appeared in The Onion and The New Yorker, drew the cartoons. In Russell’s words, Noah is “not only the world’s first sailor, he was its first animal hoarder as well.” “God” isn’t for everyone, but neither is the Bible.
