The Ultimate Superhero Graphic Novel!! In the beginning… Before the first man was created, before the earth, the sun, the stars, even before light and time were created, there was God. He alone existed without beginning, but he was not alone. He communed with himself in harmonious love. But god wanted to share his life. He wanted friends and neighbors. The Bible tells us God created numerous kinds of angelic beings to offer praise around his throne. But this is not their story. This is the story of God working with mankind.
You will not find the story of David and Goliath or Daniel in the Lions den. It is impossible to cover the entire Bible in just 330 pages. But the stories are not arbitrarily chosen. This is a chronological presentation of the Bible message, providing just that Old Testament background that is pertinent to ones understanding of who Jehovah God is and of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Sacrifice, war, temptation, betrayal, hope, and redemption all a part of Bible is honestly and vividly presented in the popular graphic novel format (Watchmen, The Dark Knight).
The critically acclaimed Good and Evil (Independent Publishers 2009 Bronze Medal Winner in the Graphic Novel/Drama category and 2009 Forward Book Award Finalist) truly is "the ultimate superhero" graphic novel and is making a huge impact worldwide. Written by author Michael Pearl (By Divine Design, Holy Sex, Eight Kingdoms) and illustrated by former Marvel Comics artist Danny Bulanadi (Fantastic Four, Incredible Hulk, Micronauts) Good & Evil is a truly unique Bible presntation. It is now being translated and distributed in dozens of languages, both in print and online, with dozens more translations in progress.
Introducing Michael and Debi Pearl
Michael and Debi Pearl have been married since 1971. They have 5 children and 15 grandchildren. Between them they have authored 14 books and 8 booklets which combined have sold millions. Much of what they write deals with marriage, child training, and homeschooling.
One of their recent books, Good and Evil (Bible stories in Marvel comic format), has been published into 25 languages with another 60 translations soon to be ready for press. The Pearls also publish a 32 page bi-monthly magazine with a subscription of over 100,000. Needless to say they are prolific writers and public speakers.
On another note, Michael is an inductee into the International Knife Throwers Hall of Fame and holds several world titles, including Gold Cup winner of 2008-9, long distance thrower of the year with a record all time high of hitting a four inch target at 63 feet, and he is the undisputed best tomahawk thrower of 2009, holding the world title.
When he is not teaching the Bible or speaking to audiences on how to have a good marriage and obedient children he is teaching kids how to stick a bulls eye with a knife or hawk.
Debi Pearl and husband Michael have 5 children and 15 grandchildren. Between them they have author 14 books and 8 booklets which combined have sold millions. Learn more about them and sign up for the No Greater Joy bi-monthly magazine at NoGreaterJoy.org.
Debi Pearl grew up during the 1960s at the height of the hippie revolution and the Jesus Movement. The forced draft due to the Vietnam War brought a sense of eternity to the youth, provoking them to seriously consider their souls. It was a time of a great move of the Spirit of God. As a teenager, dressed in tie-dye tee shirt and long drooping peasant skirt, she stood on the highways and byways sharing the gospel and seeing miracle after miracle of Gods amazing grace. She married her life mate, Michael Pearl, in 1971.
ZooKeeper5Brightwood, OregonAge: 45-54Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Made for a specific audiance!March 19, 2013ZooKeeper5Brightwood, OregonAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3This Bible will be a great inspiration to the right person! However, it is NOT appropriate for all ages. The graphics are VERY GRAPHIC, which would be great for those already into comic books; but for those who are not or for younger boys it may be disturbing: i.e.
When Jezebel is pushed from a high window, she is shown smashed on the ground with blood oozing out of her head; when the dogs walk away after eating her...there is nothing left but her gnarled hands in a big puddle of blood. At Lot's house, when the angels enter, the men yell out for them...one saying, "..send those men out so we can have sex with them."Great for the right person/too graphic for others!
Gary1 Stars Out Of 5DO NOT GET E-BOOK VERSION!!!July 13, 2012GaryQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1The book in itself is great! The problem though is that the pages DO NOT fill up your ebook page so you are stuck with tiny page-like versions that are so small you cant even see the text. I tried to enlarge the text but that did little to help me so now I'm stuck with something I can't even read! HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT! So save yourself the heartache and just get the regular paperback.
ChristopherDenton County, TexasAge: 35-44Gender: male1 Stars Out Of 5Unscriptural and misleadingJanuary 20, 2012ChristopherDenton County, TexasAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 1Value: 3Meets Expectations: 1Where is it in the book of Genesis that says "...On the sixth day with the evil ones watching..."? And why has the author given the angels of Heaven a half man-half beast apperence? This book is NOT good for anyone to get an idea of what is in the book of Genesis, certainly not little children. I would urge any parent to seriously consiter the content of this book before you present it to your children as the word of God.
