Disclaimer: I got this from a friend as a gag gift. The art is fine, in that gritty, sketchy way. Storyline is the bible simplified, but as boring.

Even in this condensed version the Bible is a hard ol' slog. The art is amazing- Manga is a great format for the grandness of the Old Testament. A LOT of thought has been put into how the story should be told . It's hinted in the notes at the end of the book that there are secrets hidden throughout- is that Satan sitting behind Rehoboam when he makes the mistake that contributes greatly to the fall of Israel?

This book was my first foray into manga-style comics, and I have to say I¿m not a huge fan. The sweeping, broad-stroked landscapes and super exaggerated facial expressions just seemed like immature art, especially in comparison to some of the more detailed art work I have seen in other comics. This book really does cover the entire Bible from Genesis to Revelation, so I give the author credit for including even the obscure Old Testament prophets and the shorter letters of Paul in the New Testament. However, in trying to fit so much in a relatively short book, some stories really get the short shrift (for instance, the book of Job and the Psalms are given only a page each). The author also tries to give the feel of a cohesive narrative so as you¿re reading, it¿s often hard to find a logical place to take a break. This is necessary in this book because the length makes it unlikely that you will read it all in one sitting (unless you have a pretty good chunk of time on your hands). Also, the content means it is not exactly a page turner, especially if you¿re like me and have already read the entire Bible, thus knowing the ending to every story presented in this book. Still, it could be a useful introduction to someone who wants to know a little more about the Bible without actually reading the entire thing.

A seamless, easily understood reading of the bible and graphic illustrations flawlessly complement, as stories and/or dialogue unfold. Ample opportunity for more indepth 'bible study' via the 'want to know more' references specifying the book of the bible and chapter(s) to find out/study more. Executed entirely in black and white which works for me personally, because you focus more on the narrative and meaning sans the distractions of 4-colour imagery.
