Ben Avery has written a fascinating story of how the Bible we hold in our hands came into being. Javier Saltares has illustrated it with art that ranges from beautiful to breathtaking. I read a lot of big books and deep theology, but I was raised on comic books and I love an interesting and visually striking graphic novel. For this work of nonfiction to be so well researched and so magnificently illustrated is a marvelous combination. Though I’ve read several books on how we got our Bible, I lea ...more

I was provided a free e-book version of this graphic novel for the purpose of this article.

The graphic novel is unlike any other I've encountered to date (though I'm hesitant to claim it's the only one of its kind). It's almost a docucomic--a seeming shot-for-shot storyboard outline for an interesting 4-part documentary series on Biblical historicity. And it works. The panel-to-panel movement creates an easy read, and the insert drawings of historical persons and events serve as perfect cutaways

the history of the Bible on comics...superbly done!

I was surprised by how good a chronicle this was (which may also reveal some bias on my part when starting it). Imperfect, of course, but a cut above many, many other works produced by Christian publishers either on the history of their scripture or in the quality of their graphic novels. Recommended (to Christians and non-Christians alike).
I learned a lot while reading this book. It conveys so much information in a simplistic way. Because of the pictures, reading it was like watching a documentary that is narrated.

A believer in the need for positive, all-ages entertainment, Ben Avery created and wrote Zondervan’s graphic novel series TimeFlyz and the comic book miniseries ArmorQuest to entertain readers with an exciting story, but also inspire and encourage readers to stand up and make a difference in their world. Avery’s comic book career began when he was selected by George R.R. Martin to work as the scri ...more
