Kingstone’s 101 Questions about the Bible and Christianity

Kingstone’s 101 Questions about the Bible and Christianity vol 1 I have to applaud for choosing to put this sort of content in comic fashion.

101 Questions about the Bible and Christianity Volume 1 by Kingstone Comics

The comic answers five questions:

  1. Where did Cain get his wife?
  2. What does the Bible say about dinosaurs?
  3. Where was Jesus for the three days between his crucifixion and the resurrection?
  4. What happens to people right after death?
  5. Does the Bible mention aliens or UFOs?

The questions are answered by addressing different views, but in general from a conservative literal reading of the scripture. So the dinosaurs is a young earth creation point of view.

The challenge of using comics in visual teaching is that the conversation bubbles sometimes detract from what you are teaching. In general buying copies of this and giving it to youth, might be the best way to teach.

This comic can be found in Vyrso, which will load it into the logos software here.

The Kindle copy can be found here.

Accordance Bible Art

When looking for good Bible art there are many sources. Both Logos and Accordance Bible Software has art sets that are either embedded in their base packages or are for sale.

The reviewed set here is Accordance Bible Art which can be found at the attached link. This set includes around 340 pictures. I say around because they are in order of Bible reference so many images show up multiple times for multiple passages.

Two thirds of this set is made up of Gustave Dore’s biblical engravings which are very common. The set does not include Dore’s Deuterocanonical etchings for Maccabees and Tobit etc. The Dore drawings are good size and resolution.

The other third is a mixed bag of classical artists and one modern artist named David Lang. All of these other artists pictures are dark tinted, the comparative pictures that are found in Logos Fine Art collection are better colored. The one redeeming feature of these pictures is there maybe fifteen rare paintings here that I have not found anywhere else.

To make a long story short, it is a good source for Dore’s paintings, though Glo is better. Both Accordance and Glo are hard to extract the paintings from for use in Presentation.
