Sometimes in ministry I have to read other things besides theology, Bible and apologetics.  So here’s two works for fun read that I am reviewing this evening:

The Hound of the Baskervilles: A Sherlock Holmes Graphic Novel

The Hound of the Baskervilles

Ian Edginton. The Hound of the Baskervilles: A Sherlock Holmes graphic Novel.  New York, NY: Sterling Publishing Company, July 1st, 2009.128 pp.

This is a graphic novel adaptation of Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes Classic, The Hound of the Baskervilles.  Doyle wrote this book eight years after he penned the story called “The Final Problem,” in which Holmes has already been killed off but as the forward of this graphic novel stated, Doyle brought back Holmes because he needed “a strong central figure to hold the plot together.”  In the world of Sherlock Holmes, this is a tale that was supposed to have taken place before Holmes’ death.  This is my second graphic novel on Sherlock Holmes and I found it a pleasure to read this book.  The plot was a real suspense and the mystery kept me going.  I also appreciated the drawing and the painting in this graphic novel, especially with its coloring that perfectly sets the mood for its respective panels (dark when it’s dark, bright when it is a pleasant part of the story).  I love the shadows that the illustrator has in the book as it gives that appropriate feel for a mystery especially with the fire side chats, the candles in dark hallways and outside at night.  The details of the rooms in the book is beautiful.  I enjoyed it enough that I’m planning to read the writer and artists’ other work on Sherlock Holmes, A Study in Scarlet.

A Study in Scarlet

A study in Scarlet Graphic Novel

Ian Edginton. A Study in Scarlet.  New York, NY: Sterling Publishing Company, July 11th, 2010. 129 pp.

I picked up this graphic novel after I first read the author’s and artist’s previous Sherlock Holmes work: The Hound of the Baskervilles: A Sherlock Holmes graphic Novel.  I enjoyed the first work and I also enjoyed their second volume!  A Study of Scarlet was actually Arthur Conan Doyle’s first work on Sherlock Holmes.  It is amazing to think Doyle wrote this classic at the age of twenty six something I didn’t know until I read the Preface.  I haven’t read Sherlock Holmes since I was a kid and I have largely forgotten what I read so it was a delight to see this story retold in graphic novel format.  The story was great with twists and turns.  Like the previous graphic novel I enjoyed the beautiful drawing and colors that sets the mood of late 1800s Victorian Era mystery.  I understand there is another graphic novel on Holmes out there by Edington; I wished there was more of these!

Wally Fry has a good series on the question “Was Jesus God?”
It is worth checking out!

Truth in Palmyra

Today I am running a special post for Wednesday. Usually I repost my post from over at the Isaiah 53:5 Project, but not today. I didn’t actually post one there yesterday, and I want to leave this coming Monday free for the start of a new series.

jesus is god

So, today I will be providing a summary with links to the recent series:

Was Jesus God?

There will be a short excerpt from the post and a link to follow. Blessing and Enjoy!

When we state that we believe in the Deity of Jesus Christ, we are simply saying that we believe that Jesus Christ is God. That may seem odd in light of the fact that Biblical Christianity also believes Jesus to have been human. One may wonder and be curious how both statements can possibly be true. We believe Jesus Christ to have been both 100% human and 100% God…
