From the biggest selling book in the history of the world... Comes the greatest story ever told... About the most controversial man who ever lived... Presented in the most popular graphic novel format on earth.


This was cool. Yep, the gospel told in Manga format. Which meant that there were an awful lot of very pretty people there (and the bad guys were ugly... except for Judas, who was exceptionally pretty). One of the things I noticed at the start, was , geeze, there were an awful lot of miracles going on around Yeshua's birth. Which makes sense, of course, but I'm not used to having them hit me bang, bang, bang, one after the other.

The text tried to be a unified account, taking bits from different Gospels for its narrative. And of course, the language was modern. I still think it was cool.
