An Excerpt from Phil’s Autobiography – Now for Sale!

In 2006, Phil Vischer wrote a book. Me, Myself, & Bob: A True Story About Dreams, God, and Talking Vegetables tells the story of Phil’s journey through creating the VeggieTales series, losing his production company Big Idea in bankruptcy court, and how God used that experience.

Phil Vischer’s dream, known to the world as VeggieTales, changed the landscape of children’s media. But most people have no idea of the intense struggle its creator would endure as he tried to build – then witnessed the tremendous fall – of a new media empire for God.

This is a story of dreaming big and working hard, of spectacular success and breathtaking failure, of shouted questions, and at long last, whispered answers. With trademark wit and heart, Phil shares an amazing story that shows how God can use our failures and the death of a dream to point us toward true success.

For the first time, we’re offering Phil’s book for sale in the What’s in the Bible? store! You can pick up a copy today here.

Comment on a post

This is a great book and a quick read. Phil's humor is front and center, but the real life lessons on following God come through loud and clear. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.


Folks, if you get one book this Christmas, get this one. I got it a while ago and I loved every page. Phil pulls no punches, he holds nothing back. It has the highs and lows of Big Idea, what went right, what went wrong, and what should have stayed on the cutting room floor. Phil, thank you for all you do, keep your eyes on the prize and your work will beaqr fruit, so to speak.
