Review: The Jonah Word for Word Bible Comic

As a Bible Gateway Blogger Grid member, I received a complimentary electronic copy of The Book of Jonah: Word for Word Bible Comic: NIV Translation in exchange for an honest review.

The Word for Word Bible Comic is a graphic novel series created using the New International Version (NIV).

The unique features of this graphic novel series include:

1. Historical

The creators have sought to maintain accurate depictions of historical periods through research and biblical scholarship.

2. Unabridged

These Bible comics use the entire text of Scripture, with no part of the story omitted.

3. “Untamed”

This series does not avoid issues the Bible itself addresses, including adult themes. However, it never presents nudity or lustful scenes. Each comic includes an age advisory.

4. Multilingual

Available in English and Spanish.

The Book of Jonah Word for Word Bible Comic begins with a brief historical introduction followed by an explanation of how the biblical text is treated. Then the story of Jonah begins.

The eye-catching graphics design is integrated perfectly with the written text. Conversations between characters are well-defined and easy to follow in speech bubbles. The story and narration flow clearly without confusion. This visual presentation of the story helps engage the reader throughout Jonah's story.

This graphic novel concludes with brief historical and biblical entries including:

1. Who was Jonah?

2. Jonah: Dead or Alive?

3. Jonah and Christ

4. Jonah and the Great “Fish”

5. Who was the king of Nineveh?

6. Nineveh: City and Province As a Bible student and a Bible teacher, I highly recommend The Book of Jonah: Word for Word Bible Comic and this graphic novel series for adults and younger age-appropriate readers (12+ and 15+). This presentation of the Bible has something to offer for both the novice and seasoned Bible reader. It is historically precise and faithful to the text. I think it is a great tool to study the Bible individually or with a group. It will challenge the reader to see familiar stories in a whole new light.
