Overview

A graphic novel of three books of the Bible; 'Amos', 'Jonah' and 'Esther,' based on an original bible translation. The Unlikely Chosen is storytelling that's designed, in format an execution for readers from middle school to early high school. Through the stories of Amos, a shepherd called to be a prophet to people in the highest places of society in ancient Israel; Jonah , a prophet who runs from God's will; and Esther, an orphan and exiled Jew who is called to be the queen of Persia, the reader is provided a fascinating assortment of the kind of people God chooses.

These stories challenge the notion that God chooses one kind of person, and they underscore that chosen people are not favored above others but chosen for the purpose of carrying out the special responsibilities to God and God's world. Each of these stories is illustrated by Earnest Graham in a unique style designed to highlight to tone and conflicts within the story. Graphic novels continue to gain acceptance as literature and as a teaching tool. The Unlikely Chosen furthers that trend, and is perfect for discussion groups, bible study, and classroom education.
