Jesus of Nazareth used parables (memorable stories that convey a greater meaning) to teach to his apostles and the crowds that gathered to hear him. The Cartoon Gospel of John uses cartoons as "visual parables" to accomplish a similar objective-to bring out the sublime meaning of the Gospel of John in a humorous yet memorable way. Combined with erudite and insightful commentary, this book provides a serious yet concise understanding of the Gospel of John for those beginning a study of the Bible, while also giving some compelling insights and perspectives for those who have studied the Bible for years. The four-color cartoons throughout make this an excellent resource for high school and college religion courses in particular. The authors refrain from an overabundance of technical terms and references to make the book accessible for all readers.
