The Third Day Graphic Novel: The Gospel of Luke 22-24 - by Alex Webb-Peploe & Andre Parker

The Third Day: The Gospel of Luke 22-24 Book Cover

About the book:

The first in a range of short graphic-novel-style books faithfully illustrating the unadorned text of the gospel of Luke.
It has a gritty, contemporary feel to it that is far removed from the clean, bright, graphic versions of the Bible already available for younger children.
This resource will introduce the biblical account of Easter to teens and young adults who enjoy reading illustrated graphic media.
The Third Day covers the Gospel of Luke chapters 22 to 24, the betrayal, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ, using the HCSB.

My review:

This is a really cool graphic novel with wonderful artwork!  I love that the words are from the Bible, though they had to leave some things out.  It's geared for teens and up, which I would agree with because some of the language would be hard for children to understand, plus the book does show the crucifixion and a soldier getting his ear cut off.  I especially thought it was cool that the creators have a letter in the back explaining why they created this and that there's a code you can scan to read the text of Luke.  They also point to a website,, where people can go to find out more about Jesus, why He came and died, and answers to questions you have.  I definitely recommend this book for teens and up who like comic books and graphic novels!

I received a free copy of this graphic novel from Cross Focused Reviews in exchange for an honest review.
