Before she was even done with the first book, she was begging us to buy the next one.

I really enjoy the art and the stories stay true to scripture and can help in understanding with the comic style.

While "Manga Messengers" is no substitute for the Bible, it would be an excellent introduction to it.

This book is the fifth installment of Tyndale's biblical manga series (after Manga Messiah, Manga Metamorphosis, Manga Mutiny, and Manga Melech). All of the books in this series feature high-quality artwork from respected Japanese artists. Manga Messengers illustrates stories from the Old Testament, with a focus on the prophets. Some stories included are: the story of Solomon, the story of Elijah, the story of Elisha, and the story of Jonah. These books are a wonderful gift for any Christian, particularly young people who also enjoy anime-style artwork. Whether you are familiar with the Old Testament or not, this book portrays biblical events with historical accuracy and a very genuine sentiment. Perhaps the most appealing element of Tyndale's books is the realistic treatment of biblical characters and events. Every larger-than-life bible character is presented in a very human light that we can understand and relate to. I highly recommend the books from this series to anyone looking for a fresh take on reading and understanding scripture.

This is a Manga book of the Prophets of the Old Testament. I really enjoy the art and the stories stay true to scripture and can help in understanding with the comic style. This would be great for a non native English speaker to understand the bible better. I think alot of prayer and effort went into this. So have fun and enjoy the Old Testament. Good for all manga fans.

The book was clean, perfect condition, and has beautiful pictures. My brother loves it and it has encouraged him to read the Bible and even study it. I have also noticed him talking about the Bible much more.

This is a great book to read. I love it! It has 1 kings, 2 kings, Jonah, Amos, Hosea, Isaiah, part of Chronicles 1 and 2, Jeremiah, part of Lamentations, Ezekiel, Daniel, Ezra, Esther, part of Malachi, and part of Nehemiah. So I would definitely recommend buying this book. And also this book will get you to easily understand the Bible more often.

Using manga to portray Bible prophecy is a master stroke. All too often, the Bible is viewed as irrelevant because it was written "long long ago and far far away." The reader can get bogged down in the odd names and customs and esoteric language and miss the message. This book cuts through all that static. The characters are real people living in a world that is adversarial but often attractive. Best of all, the text is accurate and "fills in the gaps" in a plausible way. While "Manga Messengers" is no substitute for the Bible, it would be an excellent introduction to it.

My 11 year old daughter now has the whole collection. They are modern, clean art while sticking to the true stories stated in the Bible. The book is in form of a comic book.
