About the Book

Breaking Bad showrunner Vince Gilligan wants to believe that heaven exists, but he “can’t not” believe there’s a hell.

Throughout this fascinating show depicting the shocking life and tragic times of Walter White, Gilligan offers his singular glimpse into a morally amoral universe, a place not unlike the world we live in.

The Gospel According to Breaking Bad takes a thoroughly Christian look at AMC’s popular and critical TV hit.

Covering such weighty theological issues like identity, death, justice, power, fate, free will, and the gospel itself, readers will be coerced into thinking more deeply about the universal questions Breaking Bad asks. In sections covering the colors and metaphors of Breaking Bad, fans will also come to a further appreciation for one of the most well-done TV series in recent history.

“It’s now clear to me that I haven’t been paying close enough attention to the series’ moral and spiritual dimensions. Thanks to The Gospel According to Breaking Bad, I won’t make that mistake again.”

— Mark I. Pinsky,  The Gospel According to The Simpsons

More than just an entertaining RV ride through the Albuquerque desert, Breaking Bad presents two unique characters, Walter White and Jesse Pinkman, each on notably different trajectories in their lives.

Are either redeemed by series’ end? What do our reactions to their experiences tell us about ourselves?

The Gospel According to Breaking Bad seeks to tell the old, old story through one of the most visceral and alluring stories of the present.

As author Madeline L’Engle wrote, “Maybe you have to know the darkness before you can appreciate the light.”

“One of the better Gospel According To‘s I’ve read and I’ve read most of them.”

— Cathleen Falsani Possley, The Gospel According to the Coen Brothers
