Comic book fans will flip over God on the Streets of Gotham by Paul Asay. Combining the seemingly wildly opposing elements of God and Batman, the author writes an interesting and insightful book where he compares the Caped Crusader to the average Christian. Paul Asay is the associate editor at Plugged In, a ministry that reaches millions of people with movie reviews that compare cultural trends and spiritual issues. With many published works, and a longtime love for the Dark Knight, Paul Asay is knowledgeable, engaging, and even witty.
Consistently referencing Christopher Nolan's "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight," this book piques reader interest without getting overly deep theologically. The book's format is a continuous comparison of the arc in the life of Bruce Wayne as Batman to the arc in Paul Asay's own life as a sinner who becomes a Christian who continually seeks to improve his life and the lives of those around him. The information is presented as testimonies, excerpts from sermons, quotations from notable authorities, and personal narratives from Asay's life. The book has an easy flow that keeps the reader interested, although this can in no way be considered profound theology or philosophy. However, fans of superhero movies and comics will enjoy the clever comparisons and references. Geared to younger readers, this book is more than a fanzine but not truly a textbook. - Kristin Gaffney, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
