Using a bold contemporary art style, the comic presents every word of the biblical Book of Joshua, within its historical, cultural and geographical context.
It employs a high view of scripture and the translation used is the World English Bible. It is part of the graphic novel series, The Word for Word Bible Comic. Aimed primarily at ages 15+.
The Story: The Story: God's holy nation stands at the very brink of the promised land, but before them lies a seemingly insurmountable task. They must take cities said to be walled up to heaven and defended by giants in a land that devours its own people. The conquest may seem impossible, even suicidal, but after escaping from slavery through a parted sea and living on manna from heaven, warlord and prophet, Joshua is ready to place the fate of his people and himself in God's hands.
"Very interesting. As clear a readable rendition of the Bible as I have seen. Makes biblical teaching more accessible to young and old alike." -John Wagner, Co-creator of Judge Dredd.
"Indeed, one might argue that The Word for Word Bible Comic is actually a more authentic presentation of the Bible than our bare printed texts, which invite us to fill a visual vacuum by supplying pictures in our own imagination of people and events."- Rev. Dr Christopher R. Smith (Author of "Understanding the Books of the Bible" Study Guides from IVP. Doctorate in Historical Theology and the Bible.)
