This commentary explores Old Testament scripture passages from the commonlectionary through the use of cartoons and musings. The passages are inbiblical order by book, chapter and verse, rather than lectionary order.
Why Cartoons? A cartoon is somewhat like a visual form of parable. Aparable is a short and entertaining story with a message. The ideabehind a parable is that the listener will enjoy it enough to rememberit and retell it to others (just think if they had e-mail in 800B.C.E.!). There are parables in both the Hebrew Scriptures (OldTestament) and New Testament, perhaps none more well known than thosetold by Jesus. Humor, in general, goes a long way toward illustrating apoint, often more effectively than serious discourse.
Eachscripture passage also has "musings" which provide further insight andperspective. The goal is to deliver maximum insight in minimum space(per the one-page per passage format of the book).
Readingthrough the Old Testament can be tedious and daunting at times, but this cartoon-based commentary is fun, entertaining and informative. Here are just a few of the things you'll learn from this book:
Is Elijah overly concerned with cakes?
Does Ruth have a foot fetish?
Was Joseph a spoiled brat?
Did Jonah have a bad attitude?
Does David prove Samuel correct about kings?
Just how tall was Ezekiel?
What kind of truck does Jacob drive?
Did God design the first interstate highway?
Can sheep really use calculators?
What's Job's problem?
Was Zephaniah in a rock 'n' roll band?
How many animals went with Noah on the ark?
Does Isaac like camping?
What is Moses' favorite kind of water?
Was creation really God's 3rd grade science fair project?
