ATLANTA, June 18, 2014 /Christian Newswire
/ -- This weekend, apologist Dr. Ravi Zacharias will debut his first graphic novel, The Lamb and the Fuhrer, at the International Christian Retail Show held at the Georgia World Congress Center. Based on his popular Great Conversations series, this graphic novel is the first in an expected series that covers imaginative conversations between Jesus Christ and historical world thought leaders.
Some might question why a man who has spoken at the United Nations, Oxford University and college campuses across the globe would make an intellectual transition to translate his apologetic work into a graphic novel. However, Zacharias has often underscored the importance of the arts in seeking to reach "a generation that listens with its eyes and thinks with its feelings." "We are living in times when apologetics is indispensable," says Dr. Zacharias, "but at the same time, we will need a Christian apologetic that is not merely heard, but is also seen."
Kingstone Comics Publisher Art Ayris sees comics as much more than juvenile amusement. "Kingstone is very missional in communicating a Biblical worldview through our products. Due to the transcultural nature of comics we tend to look for properties that we think will perform and communicate well globally. This series, by an effective and renowned apologist, is perfectly suited for a global market. Interestingly, we have already had the highest pre-sell to date with this title."
Central Florida based Kingstone Comics is the largest publisher of Christian comic books and Biblical worldview graphic novels worldwide, and is currently in 95 countries. Kingstone will soon also be hitting the streets with The Remaining, based on the Affirm Films / SONY Pictures Entertainment motion picture of the same name, releasing in theaters September 5. Kingstone Comics is currently releasing the 12-volume Kingstone Bible, the most complete graphic adaptation of the Bible ever published.Ravi Zacharias International Ministries is a global ministry focused on evangelism, apologetics, spiritual disciplines, training, and humanitarian support.
