Comicbook Review: Word for Word Bible Comic: The Gospel of Matthew (Simon Amadeus Pillario)

Summary: The Gospel of Matthew tells the life of Jesus Christ and how He is the promised Messiah to the Jewish audience the gospel writer and apostle Matthew, intended it to. So you’ll read from time to time references from the Old Testament to support what Matthew wants his readers to know. As for the comic this is a literally the Gospel of Matthew in comicbook form using the NIV. Nothing added or taken out. In fact it has a map and additional articles (with Pillario’s artwork and real images) at the back including a gospel presentation.

Cover Art: Like what I have said, Matthew’s intent target in writing this book are the Jewish people. So it’s evident that you’ll find some a bit of Jewishness on the cover (the candlesticks and scroll found in the synagogues). I like how Pillario place it behind Jesus creating a halo.

(Interview) Brian Borgman on Jonathan Edwards

Jonathan Edwards is synonymous with the word genius. He was praised as a leader of the First Awakening and the astounding books he wrote that resonates till now. There are lots of books on his life and teachings that are out there. And yet, they haven’t gone deeper on to some parts of his preaching ministry. There are still much of this Christian giant that is yet to be discovered.

To know what are those territories of Jonathan Edwards that needs to be explores, I reach out to Brian Borgman, author of the newly released book, Jonathan Edwards on Genesis and we talk about Jonathan Edwards, his impact to his ministry and the book he wrote.

For those who don’t know Edwards, kindly tell us who Jonathan Edwards is.

Jonathan Edwards was born in 1703 in East Windsor CT. It is important to remember that although Edwards is often called “America’s greatest theologian,” technically he was a British Colonist. He was born into a family of 10 girls, he was the only boy. He was also born into a pastor’s home; his father was Timothy Dwight. His maternal grandfather was the famous Solomon Stoddard, who pastored the Congregational Church of Northampton, Massachusetts Bay Colony. Stoddard’s influence cannot be exaggerated. He was frequently called “the pope of the Connecticut River Valley.” Edwards was born into a home of New England Puritan piety.
