Overview
This graphic novel presents every word, chapter and verse, from the biblical Book of Ruth within its historical, cultural and geographical context. The unabridged story is illustrated in a bold contemporary style but remains as faithful to the Old Testament scripture as possible. It is a tale of two widows trying to survive in ancient Israel and has a nuanced prophetic subtext all too often lost in children's picture books. Featuring the best selling English Bible translation, the NIV, with verse numbers at the bottom of each page. Presented with a matt laminated cover and high-quality, full-color, gloss paper interiors.
Author Bio
Simon Amadeus Pillario: Based in Bristol, England, Simon Amadeus Pillario has a degree in graphic design and has been professionally illustrating comics since 2002 and has a love of Dark Horse and Image comics, especially B.P.R.D. and anything by Mike Mignola. He became a committed Christian at the age of 23 and after reading the Bible as a young adult was struck by how much of the exciting intrigue, drama and challenging elements are dropped from dramatizations and visualizations of the bible stories. Passionate about the full Word of God and unsatisfied with the cut-down, child-friendly Christian comics available he was inspired to create this product for adults and mature teenagers.Leslie Simonin-Wilmer: AKA Sindos.
