Review by Esther Seim, 14
Through captivating illustrations and informative facts, the Book of God proves to its readers that our modern Bible is more than a careless compilation of stories. It shows how the sixty-six books of the Bible were painstakingly chosen and preserved throughout history. It also describes the long and difficult process of putting the Bible into print and the challenges that faced Christians who dared to make the Bible available to common people. This book can be a wonderful tool to teach yourself and others about the history of the Bible in an exciting way. The realistic graphics seem to tell a story of their own and further enhance the reader’s experience.
Graphic novels have never been my “thing,” but I found myself drawn into this book. Because I had such a great time reading it, I hardly realized I was learning. I couldn’t put it down. I’ve studied origins of the Bible in the past but never in such a fun, straightforward way. If you have any questions about the history or authenticity of the Bible, you can rely on this book for answers.
