Item description for Names, Games, and the Long Road Trip: Genesis-Exodus (Z Graphic Novels / Manga Bible) by Young Shin Lee, Bud Rogers & Jung Sun Hwang...

The creation of the world up through Israel's rescue from Egypt are told in Volume I of this collection of Bible stories that are told through the culturally relevant graphic storytelling of Korean manga.

Publishers Description
All of God's Creatures Are Talking in Bubbles! See the creation of the earth and the parting of the sea like you've never seen them before. With cool artwork and loads of humor, Names, Games, and the Long Road Trip gives the first two books of the Bible a totally different look. It's manga style, where pictures tell the story---and the action moves fast. Everyone---including Adam, Eve, Noah, and Moses---talks and thinks in word bubbles. Who knew discovering the important truths in Genesis and Exodus could be so exciting and fun?

Reviews - What do customers think about Names, Games, and the Long Road Trip: Genesis-Exodus (Z Graphic Novels / Manga Bible)?

Funny take on an ancient classic!  Apr 2, 2008
When I first saw one of these books in the bookstore, I shook my head in disbelief. Yet another attempt to make the bible hip for young people. My curiosity got the better of me and now I am hooked! Warning: if you don't have a sense of humor, put the book down now. If you are looking for a literal representation of events of the bible you will be tremendously disappointed. That is not the purpose of these books. Instead, if you are looking for something to give to the most cynical of your friends or to the smart kid with no attention span, here is what you give him/her. What I like about this version (as opposed to the other Manga Bible) is that this is a truly original adaptation of scripture meant to introduce someone to the bible, not to replace the reading of the bible. I look forward to collecting them all!
Horrible  Feb 2, 2008
First, lets clarify that this is not manga. At best, its manhwa, but really, I think calling that is an insult to manhwa. The "art" in this volume is absolutely, completely horrible. A 10 year old could do better than this. Although this is marketed for kids, I suspect most of them would also throw the book down in disgust. Kids aren't stupid and they recognize bad art work. The text itself is okay, though there is some inappropriate humor that conflicts with this being a presentation of the bible, but as a whole Tyndale's Manga Bible is a far better choice.
Nice art... fun version of old testament for kids... light on teaching/ principles  Jan 1, 2008
First I should say that it would be worthwhile for parents to review the page inserts on the publisher's home site as some may find the style & humor used in this graphic novel irreverent since this is a retelling of the bible as a comic with the author's own style / humor in it.

For instance for the fall of man, Adam sees Eve happily eating the fruit and has a shocked look on his face. Eve says, "Adam, this fruit is tasty. Why don't you try one?" "Eve, God told us not to eat from this tree...!" says Adam. "C'mon it's good." says Eve. "We'll get in trouble with God..." says Adam. Eve's eyes tear up, "Oh Adam... you've changed...I'm telling you it's good, but all you can think about is getting in trouble with God..." Adam says, "Changed? What are you saying? If you say its good I'll eat whatever you say." Then Eve winks with a grin at the reader and as Adam takes a bite she says, "Girls can make guys do anything..."

That was borderline for me.

The book steps kids through the books so they know the people and events in a section of the bible that normally kids this age would normally skip with a few exceptions. We've read through children's bibles to cover these with our kids, but my six year picks this one up on his own. However, it is not a substitute for the real bible when they become old enough since knowing people & places does not constitute faith.

In summary, I find it to be a fun complement to any child's religious experience with the old testament, but certainly not a teaching of the underlying principles and applications to their lives. That is left to parents (as it should be).

The art is great.
Creative new rendering of Scripture  Aug 2, 2007
Obviously, this book is not a translation in the usual sense of the word. It is a translation, however, into a different visual realm. Manga is a Japanese art style used in comic books (the animated equivalent being "anime").
For those who want to introduce the Bible to kids 5-13, this would be a good way of doing it. The art is quality. I recommend it!
