Amid the violence and chaos of the present day Middle East, remarkably preserved first century documents are discovered by seismic researchers beneath the foundations of present day Jerusalem.
None of the experts called in by the Israeli government can decipher this mysterious text, so as a last resort they call in American archaeologist, Dr. Terry Harper, known around the world as, "The Bone Man". What Dr. Harper finds through his translation, is a previously undiscovered, eyewitness account of Jesus' final week in Jerusalem.
Will it confirm or discount the Gospel accounts of this event that have guided people for thousands of years? Only Dr. Harper has the key to unlocking this mystery and sharing it may cost him his life!
At its core, Eye Witness presents a unique and fully illustrated version of the Passion Story of Jesus, combined with a modern day political thriller.
This is the first book in the Eye Witness tetraology.
“I was given more information in these pages than in many Bible handbooks and Study Bibles I have read. This does more to present the Gospel message in an interesting way, than anything in a long time.”
"Eye Witness: A Fictional Tale of Absolute Truth, is by far one of the best told graphic novel versions of the life of Jesus I have ever seen. The art is dynamic and engaging. It feels like a modern comic with art that is comparable to most professional level comic art on the shelves today."
From 2002 through 2010, Robert James Luedke, created the Eye Witness series of graphic novels, as his way of presenting the Gospels stories to young adult readers in a way that is both appealing and approachable.
His goal with the series, is to entertain while also enlightening readers by combining the spiritual with the dramatic and the historical. Luedke's hope is, that this series will not only appeal to Christians, but more so to those who may not be church goers or have never even picked up a Bible!
