Ever since he left the fundamentalist household of his youth, Mark Russell
has become an amateur theologian, sharing his cockeyed take on the scriptures with the secular world. Now Mark has teamed up with cartoonist Shannon Wheeler
, and the two of them have compiled a less-than-canonical romp through their favorite Bible stories. In this extended version of the KBOO-FM
interview, S.W. Conser
sits down with Mark and Shannon to ask about the inspiration behind God Is Disappointed In You
, as well as the often surprising reaction to the book from religious communities.
