I just read The Manga Bible: From Genesis to Revelation by Siku and Akin. I liked it. It doesn’t go into too much depth considering that its the entire bible in one volume that around 200 pages. But because it doesn’t go into depth the reader is able to see the progression of time and the cyclical nature of how the Jews would believe in One God then be led astray and how they were brought back again. It also shows the similarity between the types of people chosen by God. No one was flawless.
And Jesus is awesome in here (not that he’s not awesome everywhere else), but I think people have a tendency of showing Jesus as kind of soft. In this book he’s definitely kick ass. And when he think about it he probably had to be. He lasted in the desert for 40 days and 40 nights, turned down the devil, knocked some sense into the Pharisees, the list goes on.
The manga bible provides a slightly different point of view than what you’re probably used to, but there are many points of view when it comes to understanding the bible.
