The Amazing Adventures of the Afterbirth of Jesus

An illustrated Bible story that reveals something new and very strange

In The Amazing Adventures of the Afterbirth of Jesus, Peterson Toscano does what he does best: Invites his audience to approach biblical texts and stories with levity, imagination, and playfulness. Engage Toscano’s work not only with an open mind and heart, but an open mouth: You’ll laugh until you cry and realize you’ve experienced something holy, humane, and humorous.
– The Reverend Canon Broderick L. Greer
