Graphic novelizations of the Bible are becoming more popular than ever. One of the companies leading this trend is Kingstone Comics. Kingstone Comics produces comics and graphic novels, and they even produce the complete Bible in three large volumes. In this review I take a look at a single comic book simply titled Noah. The story is a graphic novelization of Noah. It of course takes some artistic license rather than being word-for-word from the Bible (hence the ‘novelization’). This helps show the culture of the time and show the types of things Noah and his sons dealt with....Read More
At ICRS I had the privilage of interviewing Cassandra Laymon. Cassandra is an author, speaker, and the president of Beacon Wealth Consultants, Inc. In her book I Found Jesus in the Stock Market: How Biblically Responsible Investing Can Change Your Heart, Too, Cassie discusses our responsibility of choosing investments that fit our biblical worldview. She discusses our responsibility to research companies before making investments, communicating with companies about their choices, when to sell a stock, the importance of continuing your research into a company, how to know which companies are okay to invest in, and the services her company provides to do this...Read More
At ICRS we had the privilege of sitting down with Brian Wells, the author of The League and The Lantern. The book is the first in a series of five novels and follows Jake and his new friends Lucy and TJ on their adventures. The three meet at a school sponsored sleepover that gets taken over by an unknown organization. They narrowly escape and spend the next 48 hours trying to figure out what the group is after and why, who can be trusted, and how to survive. It has lots of twists and turns and beautifully balances humor...Read More
At ICRS we had the opportunity to interview Maureen Pratt about her book Don’t Panic!: How to Keep Going When the Going Gets Tough, which talks about dealing with crisis. Maureen talks about the various types of crisis that she’s been through, how she dealt with them, and her advice to others in dealing with their own situations. She talks about calling and depending on God, the purpose of crisis, commitment, building spiritual strength, shunning the cloak of victim, and much more. Don’t Panic! is a well-written book and is recommended for anyone going through a crisis of any kind. The book is available in...Read More
Christian Action Heroes produces comicbooks and graphic novels with a message. Just like real life, the characters are not perfect and sometimes make bad choices. This opens up the story-telling to moral lessons based on biblical principles. The characters are Faith Walker and the First-Watch. Maybe you could call it a Christian Avengers. Relevant Magazine calls it “The #1 Christian Superhero.” I’m reviewing a graphic novel called The Art of Warfare. There’s also merchandise available including trading cards, coloring books, an action figure, and even curriculum. The heroes are even available for live action performances. Clint Johnson is the...Read More
