From legendary character actor Stephen Tobolowskywho currently appears on The Goldbergs HBOs Silicon Valley and Norman Lears new One Day at a Time author of The Dangerous Animals Club and The Tobolowsky Files podcastMy Adventures with God is a funny introspective collection about love catastrophe and triumph all told through the lens of his evolving relationship with the mystery that is God As Tobolowsky explains Its hard to believe in nothing Even cats believe in suppertime As much as we love certainty we are often shaped by the invisible the unexplainablesomething we call faith We are inclined to acknowledge the holy Even if it is only a paper heart we find in an old suitcase My Adventures with God is a series of short stories exploring the idea that most peoples lives seem to fit into the template of the Old Testament We all have powerful creation myths tales of our childhood and family our first battles won and lost It is our Genesis Then like in the Book of Exodus we go into slavery Rather than building pyramids we lose ourselves in fear and ambitionin first loves first jobs too many dreams mixed with too much beer We eventually become free only to wander in the wilderness At some point we stop and proclaim to the universe who we are This is our Leviticus moment We reconcile what we thought we would be with what we have become We often attempt a mid course correction Then as in the Book of Numbers we are shaped by mortality as we bear the loss of family and friends Finally we retell our stories to our children hoping to make sense of the journey as Moses did in Deuteronomy Tobolowskys stories tell of a boy growing up in the wilds of Texas finding and losing love losing and finding himselfall told through the prism of the Torah and Talmud mixed with insights from science and refined through a childs sense of wonder My Adventures with God not only shines a light into the life of one of Americas most beloved actors but also provides a structure to evaluate our own lives and relationship with God
