The Holy Bible has been in many formats. Cartoons, Movies, Comics, Audio Tapes and Music is just a few of them. But finally, it has reached Japan's most popular format ever: Manga. The first two books are made after the new testament (Jesus and Paulus) and mostly consists of a light-hearted tone, while the three latter ones are made after the old testament. Rape, murder and torture are just some of the keywords describing these.

Well, its my first time writing a review. I don't usually write any reviews, but since no one has wrote any here, then i guess i'll try. ^_^

Just one thing, this manga is actually the story of the birth of Christ and his life, what he goes through and finally the crucifiction.

Of course, for Christians, and non-christians, i highly recommend this manga. I agree that if you read from the Bible, its not so entertaining. Furthermore, having the manga, with illustrations and all, will certainly be much more fun to read. Just don't get me wrong, reading from the Bible provides clearer details.

Overall, this manga read more

This manga changed my life. I was Christian all my life. But I really didn't care much about Christ or my life. When I picked this manga from the bookstore I never realized how much it would change it. It's truly an inspirational tool Recommended for Christians and Non-Christians alike!. While I would have wished for a more graphical and realistic crucifixion. I can't complain. It's an absolute Master Piece for me and it will always have a soft spot on my heart. Because of this. I finally realized I wish to do Christian Anime and Manga!. LONG LIVE LORD JESUS!
