Yes, it looks like a kid's comic book-all hand written--with cutesy little sketches. But, read all of the intro and small print.
He warns you that in his opinion (that I completely share), everyone who approaches the Bible comes with their own unique "glasses"--no literalism for him. He also let's you know that he's decided that Jesus is the way that works for him.

I like Erlander's illustrations and light-hearted approach, although he seems to take the material seriously enough. This would be a good book for older children as well as new members of the faith.
This is a very accessible, well-thought-out version of the gospel. I love the pictures and the style. I definitely see myself using this in ministry someday, with kids, youth, or adults. It's that versatile.
