Originating in Japan, manga is a comic book style loved the world over. Roald Lidel created Next, a nonprofit company of authors and illustrators, to “reach children who might resist traditional Bible translations and never attend a church.” With its action-packed storytelling, the Manga Messiah series wonderfully illustrates biblical truths. The series is available in 21 languages with more coming. Manga Messiah presents the gospel stories, while Manga Metamorphosis illustrates the book of Acts. Manga Mutinyand Manga Melech go back to the Old Testament, andManga Messengers, due out in September, will continue the story. (Tyndale House)
