An engaging and hilarious collection that encourages readers to tackle those strange, awkward, worrying, yet endlessly compelling passages of the Bible. The Bible is full of not-so-precious moments, from murder and mayhem, to sex and slavery. Now, an incredible cast of contributors tackles the parts of the Bible that most excite, frustrate, or comfort, like: What the heck is the book of Revelation really about? (The answer will surprise you.) How do we come to grips with the Bible's troubling (or seemingly troubling) passages about the role of women? Why did the artist of the oldest known picture of Jesus intentionally paint him with a wonky eye--and what does it tell us about beauty? DISQUIET TIME was written by and for Bible-loving Christians, agnostics, skeptics, none-of-the-aboves, and people who aren't afraid to dig deep spiritually, ask hard questions, and have some fun along the way.

Praise for Baked Elements: “From the writers of my favorite baking books of all time, a must-own for any baking enthusiast.” —Zoe Deschanel “Lewis and Poliafito approach their recipes with enthusiasm and dedication.” —Boston Globe “It’s official. I’m a goner. I love this cookbook. . . . While many restaurant pastry chefs around the country are out there pushing the envelope and falling off the cutting edge adding savory ingredients to deconstructed molecular gastronomy masterpieces, Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito have delivered another collection of uniquely approachable and delicious baked creations to satisfy any craving.” —Austin Chronicle “Nobody, nobody has a better grasp on the kinds of recipes that make people happily gum up the pages of a book with cookie dough or retire their grandmother’s famous recipe for cinnamon rolls (because it didn’t include pumpkin) than the Baked guys. This book is full of the stuff of American bakery-case dreams.” —Deb Perelman, creator of Smitten Kitchen “Not a page goes by without some personal anecdote, tip, or bit of advice that makes every recipe feel personal, well-tested, and well-loved. The book itself is gorgeous, with drool-worthy photos and an elegant layout that makes finding old favorites easy and choosing new treats a breeze.” —Serious Eats
