Have you wondered what's inside the Apocrypha, but thought it was a little too boring? Here's the thing: Jesus was familiar with the stories that are in the Apocrypha. They're the "extra" books that are recorded in Catholic and Orthodox Bibles, but not included in most Protestant texts. If Jesus had those stories floating around in the back of his mind during his ministry, why shouldn't we?
From blinding bird poop to disemboweled war elephants, the Apocrypha is rife with fascinating stories. Sadly, those stories are often hidden within a miasma of boringness.
Fun with the Apocrypha is your cheat code to knowing and understanding these ancient Jewish texts without having to trudge through the boring stuff yourself. Chock-full of pop culture references, Dante takes you book-by-book through the ancient Jewish texts, skipping over the boring parts while digesting the meaning of the stories in relation to the rest of the Bible. Whether you're a zealous believer or merely a Biblical wanderer, this is your guide to familiarize yourself with the 'extra' books of the Bible.
Come for the Biblical exegesis, stay for the jokes.

About the Author
Dante is a desperate believer. He has education in religion as well as cinema arts from Biola University. He's lived with his wife in Slovenia, Russia, and America. Sometimes he makes outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. No, wait, scratch that. That was Dr. Evil's father who made that outrageous claim. Not Dante. Mr. Stack would never say that. He's much too humble. Life is best lived with a dog and a wife.
