Comics are not just for kids. They are collectors items that adults treasure into their old age. In this visually focussed world, they provide a new way to get people reading again. If you have seen Bible picture books before, the planned Bible Comic is nothing like them.
All too often we sanitize the Bible, and airbrush out the bits that modern culture doesn’t like. But the real bible is full of violence, sex, betrayal, blood and guts. Just the sort of thing the average older teen and young adult is interested in.
The Bible Comic describes itself as ‘not for children’ and is 15+ rated because it is true to the Bible and reveals its story warts and all. I have always thought that one of the most compelling things about the Word of God is just how honest it is. The heroes are revealed in all their complexity, and with their failures as much on display as their successes. How refreshing to see a graphical novel that accurately reflects the Author of the Bible’s intent. Why not play your part in allowing the Bible to live in a new compelling format?
