Comicbook Review: “A Reign of Beasts” (Andrew Carman and Jared Boggess)

Summary: The prophet Daniel wakes up from a vision that is filled with horrific imagery. A prophetic dream (or nightmare) which shows Titans or kaijun emerging to battle humanity in the near future. Then as he nears the end of his, then comes a “Son of Man” to do a rescue mission.

Cover Art: This is just a foretaste of the art that you’ll experience inside the comic. And just by the cover (without giving away the details) you’ll find this is not the usual comicbook artwork. The monsters are scary looking and brooding over Daniel. It gives you that vibe that they’re menacing Daniel in his dream. The purple or maroon (color blind on digital copy) color instead of black still delivers that insidious feel to the reader.

Book Review: “How The Church Fathers Read the Bible” (Gerald Bray)

The church fathers are gifts to the church. They’re the one who (some of them) went under the teaching of the original disciples before the apostolic era ceased. They’re the ones who are able to hold Scriptures in their original language.They were the original benefactors of canonicity of Scriptures and creeds. They were there when the church was in its infancy. The church fathers were there going head to head with philosophers and presenting Christianity. This is but a few of what they have done and been through. And what a privilege that is to serve God in those times.

Though we can say lots of great things about them, the church fathers are, like us, humans and capable of errors. They have a fair share of blunders like in our time when it comes to teaching the Bible. Fallible as they are, they were the forefront on the development of hermeneutics starting with patristic biblical interpretation. So if we want to know how these church fathers interpret the Bible, we should not ask how the church fathers interpret the Bible but first and foremost, the question should be: how do the church fathers read their Bibles?

Children’s Book Review: “The Magnificent Time Machine” (Sinclair B. Ferguson)

A time travelling plot is a staple in children’s books. Like what I reviewed last January, there is always room for this kind of story. Stories like these embrace the unknown that give such thrill to our little ones.

In the case of Christian children’s books, time travelling is not the end of itself. The story must lead to the gospel. Speaking the gospel in the story shouldn’t be just an afterthought. It must be the center. We must always show the essentiality of the gospel or else we might lessen its importance to our children. I’m happy that this new book by Bible teacher, Sinclair Ferguson brings the gospel to the center. How? By going back to the beginning.

8 Favorite Quotes From The Book “How The Church Fathers Read the Bible” (Gerald Bray)

It’s been a while since I posted some quotes from the book I recently finished. The reasons are I’m busy and the book is long or technical too read. But anyways, here’s s some great quotes I got from a book I recently finished, How The Church Fathers Read the Bible by Gerald Bray published by Lexham Press. You can get your copy, both physical and digital by following this link.

“The fathers of the church could not know that we would still be reading their works today, nor could they have had any idea of how the gospel would spread across the world and take root in places of which they had never heard. Their faith has been vindicated in ways that they could not have known or suspected. We are called to learn from their example and to take heart in the fact that God has not changed, that his promises remain fi rm, and that in his good time he will reveal the fruits of our faith in the life of his people.”

Comicbook Review: “Justin Martyr” (Art Ayris and Richard Bonk)

Summary: In this one-shot comicbook, Ayris and Bonk teams up to give a legit brief biography of this early Christian apologist, his conversion to Christianity, his teachings, death and legacy.

Storytelling: This comic is straight forward biography of this ancient Christian philosopher. Ayris gives us all meat without the extra i.e. heart wrenching stuff because there isn’t much in the life of Justin Martyr. However, as I have said if you want the meat, you’ll find it here. If your into that stuff without falling asleep then get this comic.

“The failure of the natural theology of Thomas Aquinas is not that he sought to construct a theology outside of special revelation but that he sought to build a theology outside of natural revelation.”
