Author/Artist Review

Author: Word of Life Press Ministries
Located in: Japan
Submitted: December 05, 2006

    Tell us a little about yourself.  Word of Life Press Ministries is Japan's largest Christian publishing, retailing and distributing enterprise. We are Evangelical, non-denominational, and publish Bibles, books, magazines, tracts (including Braille editions of all of the above), videos/DVDs, software, music (CDs and printed), a weekly newspaper, curriculum, gifts and church supplies. We publish a monthly manga comic book for children with serialized stories that we sometimes put into book form.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  We wanted to introduce the Manga Bible Story into the N. American market because we knew that among the 500,000 Japanese living in N. America there are many Japanese foreign exchange students who love to read manga. This is a great way to introduce them to the Bible. They will definately read it because it is manga in their own language. We think any host family might want to give this to their student. We also know that many Americans are interested in manga and might like to see a manga version of the Bible.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  Mr. Masakazu Higuchi is a noted manga (comic book style) artist in Japan who made it his life's work to bring Bible stories to life so the masses of Japanese would discover them. This includes children and young people, but also adults who know nothing about the Bible. 90% of Japanese are not Christians so have little knowledge of the Bible.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  Manga (comic book style) magazines and books account for 30-50% of the books and magazines published in Japan. So it is a very pervasive medium that reaches all kinds of people from small children all the way to adults.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  These stories cover everything from Genesis to the letters of Paul with a summary of the General Epistles. They do not go into Revelation. The same author has also produced a Manga History of Christianity that WLPM publishes.
