Product Description

A GOSPEL STORY FOR OUR TIMES

The Bible and its heroes come to life in this stunning work by Japanese-German artist Issey Fujishima. From war-torn Jerusalem to the wilderness of the Jordan river, “The Reign of God” invites you to a dangerous land where priests, prophets, and kings struggle for power.

Blending Asian and Western styles this graphic novel delivers an epic character drama about friendship, faith, and revolution. Its vision of the Gospel will touch everyone who cares about Jesus and his message of renewal and compassion.

"An alternative view of Jesus, one that is much more human…” (Inheritance Magazine)

 

THE STORY

70 AD
Radical Jewish rebels have declared independence from Rome. Jerusalem is a theocracy, but the Roman army prepares its final battle against the insurgents. In the midst of fire and bloodshed, two unlike men cross each other’s path: Yosef, a young aristocrat who works for the empire and Shimon, an old man from Galilee. He claims to be a disciple of “Lord Yeshua,” the crucified magician some people call Messiah.

Yosef is captivated as Shimon tells the story of his youth. How 40 years earlier, he was at the Jordan River where Yeshua and a desert hermit called “Immerser” preached a new message of liberation. A message that was about to change the world—and provoke the powerful elites of the Holy Land…

Does this story hold a key to saving the Jerusalem from doom? And can it save old Shimon from death on the cross?

“Teenagers and young adults will enjoy this exciting retelling of the Gospel story.” (Crosslight, Uniting Church in Australia)
