The Manga Jesus

I did a quick search and it would seem that I have been a little remise.  A minister and a comic book nerd and I haven’t ever blogged about the Manga Bible.  Of all the different reinterpretations that I have mentioned before you would have thought I would have mentioned this sooner!

There are all sorts of different editions.  Of the many attempts to make a comic book out of the Bible and many fall short.  However, I have found the manga bible to be a faithful not only to its genre but also to the biblical texts.  As always, not a replacement for the original texts but a way of reimagining them.

Today, Church House Bookshop have announced the Manga Jesus.  No doubt this will be just as good.
