Happy Easter, everyone! I hope your day is filled with blessings and praise.
Recently, I was given the opportunity to review The Third Day, a short graphic-novel-style book that presents the story of Christ’s betrayal, death, and resurrection.
To be perfectly honest, my first thought after I agreed to do the review was, What was I thinking, as I have never read a graphic novel, and very few comic books. However, I am very glad I read The Third Day, as it opened up a completely new genre of high-quality Christian books for me.
The Third Day has impressive artwork that captures the emotion, detail, humanity, and seriousness we find in Luke 22-24. I have to admit that I was stunned with artists’ ability to depict the passage of Scripture without changing it, which reveals their high value of the Word of God, and desire to share the Gospel through a widely-loved medium.
A word of caution: some readers may not be comfortable with the artists’ depictions of Christ found throughout The Third Day. Otherwise, I would highly recommend it to anyone who loves graphic novels, and I believe The Third Day would be an excellent tool for sharing the Gospel.
I would give the book a “B”.
