In the summer of 2018, I had to take an unexpected blogging break, but I couldn’t tell any of you all why exactly, beyond “I was working on a really big project.” Then a few weeks ago, I shared the contractually obligated contract photo: the big project was something for B&H Publishing; but at the time, I still couldn’t say what it was.
But now, I can—in part because Dave (my friend, co-host on Table of malContents, and head of B&H Marketing) spoiled it toward the end of this week’s episode (if you’re not already listening, please do check it out). Which I take to mean that I now have the thumbs up. So here it is:
This Spring, EPIC: The Story That Changed The World will be released from B&H Kids. EPIC is a brand-new graphic-novel-inspired book1 engaging older kids and preteens with the One Big Story of Scripture through its retelling of 40 biblical narratives, and life-application questions.
Here’s a quick look inside:
EPIC is a great way to engage your kids with the gospel story, and I hope you’ll check it out. My son has already started reading it (and he’s younger than the intended audience); so far, nothing but positive words from him (and he’s not just being nice because I’m his dad).
- ie, not a graphic novel; it’s probably best described as an illustrated novel ↵
