    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.

He also let's you know that he's decided that Jesus is the way that works for him. Get all of the high points and biggest elements of the Old Testament, the history of the ""child-people"" needing constant education and rules. See how often the people forgot the messages, letting the balance of righteousness and mercy get out of whack. See how this author views the New Testament and what Jesus said and did. I really enjoyed his definitions: the wilderness school, being the contrast society, manna people. The balance of righteousness and mercy provides me with an excellent analogy for the potential extremes of legalism and sentimentality, respectively. Highly recommend it.

    I recommend this as an introduction to the bible and understanding how social justice and Christianity go hand and hand... despite the bigoted rhetoric of the right.

    Quite simply the most profound and easy to read book about the Bible that I’ve ever experienced! The drawings and format look like it’s written for kids, but the cartoons turn out to be quite creative/ occasionally humorous. However, once you get past that, his understanding of the scope of the entire Bible and story of God is unprecedented! I’d highly recommend! You can purchase through Augsburg Fortress or google Dan Erlander.

You can purchase through Augsburg Fortress or google Dan Erlander. You can also find accompanying adult and children studies on his website for free. Again, I’ve never seen the scope of the Biblical story written so succinctly and accurately! A new favorite to be sure!

    I am left speechless. As the author states: "Words never capture the reality to which they point" pgV. A significant and insightful perspective of God's story. I would recommend attending Alan Storey's Manna and Mercy course (SA) to bring this book to life and to guide you in practical application thereof in today's society. I am left speechless.

    Looks cartoonish but gave me a way deeper understanding of the gospel message in a whole new approach.

    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. I like Erlander's illustrations and light-hearted approach, although he seems to take the material seriously enough.

    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. This is a very accessible, well-thought-out version of the gospel. I love the pictures and the style.

    This books helps adults understand the Bible like children, but it is not a book intended for little kids.
