Randy Alcorn has just released a graphic novel called Eternity. It’d be a great giveaway for a teen or pre-teen boy who enjoys comic books (even if he’s never read the Bible or heard about Jesus). I was invited to offer an endorsement, and here’s what I wrote:
“Randy Alcorn’s Eternity is an engaging, biblically faithful, and beautifully illustrated retelling of Jesus’ story of a rich man and Lazarus, a beggar, both of whom die and have their fortunes immediately reversed (Luke 16:19-31). But it’s more than that. Alcorn used this story to unpack the weighty realities of heaven, hell, and the choice every person–rich or poor, young or old–must make: Will we appear before God on the basis of our sinful record, or on the basis of Christ’s perfect record? I expect Eternity will be a powerful tool for presenting the gospel to young adult readers, some of whom may be totally unfamiliar with the Bible, but after reading this book will know everything they need to know to get right with God and begin a life of increasing conformity to their original, divine design.
Some will be skeptical about a graphic novel. Pick it up and give it a try. There’s a good chance you won’t be able to put it down.”
