Mandel recreates with wonderful humor the stories and characters of the Bible as seen through the eyes of the 21st Century reader. The author has the gift of an exquisite irony. The book, although irreverent, basically follows the original biblical version. The author humanizes the characters and tells the events with the humor that characterizes his style. It includes God's monologue about the Creation, Joseph as the first psychoanalyst, Queen Esther's diaries, newspaper headlines at the time of Moses, interviews with Goliath's mother and Samson's parents, a conference by the prophet Jeremiah, and much more.
