I remember growing up, sitting around the fire on Christmas Eve, and hearing my dad read the Christmas story from the gospel writers account.
Remember the star?
The Wise Men?
Herod's decree that all male children be killed?
It's a great story if mystery and intrigue, and all the way woven in the story is this little baby who has come to give hope to the whole world.
Emmanuel, God with us.
I remember trying to formulate the images in my own head as my father read the words outloud.
Well, now you don't have to wonder.
I got a call from a friend of mine in Texas about this new project called "A Child Is Born." He teamed up with world renown comic artist Billy Tucci to create a graphic novel of the Christmas story, and I've got to say, this is one of the coolest accounts of the story I've ever seen, and the artwork is UNBELIEVABLE.
In a day and age where images speak louder than words, the team at Apostle Arts have mastered the account of a savior being born through a new medium, the Graphic Novel.
They've woven in the scripture with a true to life account of what it might have been like during the time of Jesus' birth. Take some time to check it out at their website Apostle Arts. You don't want to miss this.
