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 twenty-three 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.

Ralph Milton is one of Canada's best-known religious communicators, and a recipient of an Honorary Doctorate of Sacred Letters from St. Stephen's College, Edmonton. He also has an Honorary Doctorate of Divinity from the Vancouver School of Theology. A former news broadcaster, open line host and church administrator, Milton is the author of seventeen books including the bestselling Family Story Bible; Angels in Red Suspenders; and Julian's Cell, a novel based on the life of Julian of Norwich. On the Internet, Ralph Milton publishes the popular e-zine Rumors, which uses liberal doses of humour and story to communicate a lively faith. Cofounder of Wood Lake Publishing, Ralph Milton lives in Kelowna, British Columbia, with his wife and friend of 50 years, Beverley, a retired church minister. Together, they remain the ever-proud grandparents of Zoe and Jake.
