Product Description

Acclaimed British artist Siku turns his pen towards the Bible, taking up the task of a full presentation of the story of the Bible. Using the modern British style of art that is very reminiscent to manga, Siku covers many high points - and low points - of the Old Testament in narrative form while letting a few shorter parts (Ruth, Jonah, and Psalm 18) punctuate the general flow. The New Testament focuses heavily on the Gospels (with 4 one-page parables) before a giving a treatment of the Acts of the Apostles, with some accompanying text from the epistles. A brief version of Revelation concludes the book.
The stated intention of The Manga Bible is to inspire the reader to study the actual Bible texts, and to help in this mission non-invasive boxes on many pages point the reader to Bible verses where the full story can be found. Many modern elements are used, such as slang, stylized visuals and humor, to shift emphasis off of the non-nuanced scriptural dialogue. This version of The Manga Bible also contains commentary on key scenes, a sketch gallery and an article on the importance of scripture.

    Im a youth pastor and I showed this Manga Bible to some preteens and teens, Ive already got a dozen or so requests for it. In fact one of my teens said, Now thats a Bible I would read. This form of the Bible also got a different teen interested who hates to read. If God can use this to get His message across then Im all for it! If you have a teen that likes things like Yu-Gi-Oh!, Pokemon, Dragon Ball Z, or any other anime type of cartoon/comic then this would be perfect for them. The only down side that someone could make against this, is the fact it's not like a NIV or NASB, but I think that's the point so 4.5 out of 5 from me.

    This ia an interest capturing version. For one unfamiliar with a traditional version it really would cause that person to want to read one.

    This bible is fun for youth and adults to just read. It's comic book style makes it easy for someone who has never read the bible to get interested,and it's references to scripture verses at very strategic points within each story is a wonderful way to lead them into reading a full version bible. I gave copies to our children's librarian and to the director of our church's day school, who both found it as good for the youth as I though it was.
