The Kingdom of Heaven is Like…

We’re hard at work on our next book, The Parables of Jesus (available this spring!) and we thought you all might like to see the description that will be on the back cover.


A hurricane howls towards a house built on sand. A nighttime intruder creeps onto enemy land. A boy leaves home to seek adventure. Robbers menace a lonely traveler. And the unexpected happens.
This new and innovative graphic novel translation of the parables of Jesus puts a modern twist on an ancient art form: stories that begin with mundane events and end with a glimpse of a deeper reality.  Earnest Graham’s illustrations, ranging in style from West African kente and Japanese prints to vivid modern realism, interpret these well-loved stories for the next generation of readers.
