“Graphic Novel” Version of The Small Catechism by Martin Luther
I have been so eager to tell you all about a great new resource from Concordia Publishing House. It’s been in the works for quite some time, and I’m now able to share the cover image of it, along with a nice sample. It is a “graphic novel” form of The Small Catechism, titled, Timeless Bible Truths. The illustrator is a LCMS Director of Christian Education, Scott L. Jung. He did a spectacularly good job wedding text to images. As I was reading through it again recently I was once more struck by the fact that each time I read it, I have to remind myself that the words in this thing are precisely nothing more, and nothing less, than Luther’s Catechism. The images bring the text alive in a remarkably effective manner. I strongly urge you to pick up a copy of this resource. I think it will be useful for both youth and adults. We live in a visual age and we must use all means possible to communicate the truth to a visual culture. And, keep in mind, from the very beginning, Luther’s Catechisms, both Small and Large, included images throughout them to illustrate the text. Enjoy the sample. Just click on this link and a PDF file will download. Here is the product information page on our web site. Please help spread the word on this.
