(Book Review) Kierkegaard: A Single Life

Søren Kierkegaard was born into a large, wealthy family in Copenhagen, Denmark on May 5, 1813. He grew into an awkward but witty boy, often infuriating his teachers and classmates alike.

(Book Review) Paul the Apostle

Paul the Apostle is a graphic novel set in an alternate reality in which Jesus comes to a futuristic, science-fiction world. Settings and technology look bright and industrial, while the characters are a motley assortment of colorful alien races. The story, though, sticks very close to the book of Acts. Names of people and places are the same. Paul is often portrayed using the words of the actual, historical/biblical Paul
