In graphic novel format, retells stories from the gospels of Luke, Matthew, Mark, and John.

Manga (pronounced “mahn-ga”) is the Japanese word for comics. It has become a huge hit with American teens and tweens. Manga has emerged as the most popular comics category and is one of the fastest growing genres in American publishing. Appealing to kids and adults, readers will find this edgy rendition of the Gospel accounts both compelling and highly engaging. This authentic, cutting-edge art style is combined with fast-paced storytelling to deliver biblical truths to an ever-changing culture that is often a challenge to penetrate. This is genuine Japanese manga style, unlike other Christian “manga” books in the marketplace.

I love this Book!!! My brother had this one and he would allow me to look at it and read it and I loved the pictures! Not to mention the whole book too!

I'm usually not a huge fan of manga, but I quite enjoyed this. It presents the gospel story clearly and concisely, with fun portrayals of the characters. My only problem is the jarringly modern language used at a few points. It doesn't really fit, but the rest is very good.
