Coffee With Jesus (A Review) December 17, 2013

I am grateful to IVP for sending me a complementary review copy of David Wilkie’s Coffee with Jesus. I hope that most people are already familiar with the comic series on the Radio Free Babylon website, which has been widely shared (and sometimes imitated) online.

    I do enjoy these – but in proportion to the rest of his body, Jesus’ neck is too long and his head is too small. It’s time for Wilkie to redraw him.
