"Eye Witness: Acts of the Spirit"

Luedke has used the graphic novel in a new and exciting way. He really makes the Bible come alive.

Robert James Luedke is the antidote to Dan Brown, James Cameron and whatever other flavor-of -the-month, conspiracy laden project is out there.

I really like the good, rich and very animated art style that Luedke brings to this graphic novel.

This is a beautiful way to illustrate the love of Christ for each of us.  I highly recommend this book to parents that want their children to discover the true meaning of the resurrection.

"Luedke is one of the leading lights in evangelical comic circles."

There is something here for everyone.  This is not a book trying to convert you, but trying to entertain you!

The language of the apostles, the Jews and the Romans in ancient Jerusalem is presented in a contemporary American vernacular. The story of the apostles (especially the conversion of Paul) is told with lively interest. The modern day plot of attempted assassination is equally of interest with its twists, turns, and unexpected developments. 'Eye Witness: Acts Of The Spirit', is a unique, entertaining, imaginative, and very highly recommended graphic novel for readers of all ages.

'Acts of the Spirit', deftly combines 1st century tales of Jesus' resurrection and the beginning of His Church with a taut modern-day thriller involving archaeological discoveries, kidnappings, and car bombs. Each page layout jumps out at the reader with creative bleeds, color contrasts, muscular heroes, creepy angels, and menacing use of shadows. This book matches up to anything out there today.

There is excitement and adventure as well as biblical truths in 'Acts of the Spirit'. Unlike some Christian items that have been produced in the past that don't live up to their secular counterparts, the color and artistic style of this novel are excellent with some fantastic detail for comic collectors. The writing is not afraid to be daring or confrontational and the story in the 21st Century adds interest and intrigue.

'Acts of The Spirit' is a cool, contemporary, culturally relevant graphic novel telling of the ministry of Jesus and his first disciples....NO Christian comic fan should be without it!
 

As a long time Christian and comic fan, I have been waiting for a contemporary Gospel adaptation of the book of Acts. Acts of the Spirit' is it. Other companies have tried to present the message and managed to drown it out with cultural clichés. Not so with Head Press. Bang on. Top shelf. Home run. Slam-dunk. This is the real thing!

I want to congratulate you on the fantastic job you did on Eye Witness' This was an unexpected treat and a very welcome addition to my library. Thank you so much for sharing it with me. I have just started to read the books, and must compliment you on the clarity and ease to which you describe these stories. Your character drawing is so animated and powerful in Eye Witness, it's a pleasure to study every panel. Great stuff all the way through!

You know I often tell my students as I look at their work, that you can tell if the artist enjoyed doing the work. I mean to say that there is a spirit and energy in the drawings that demonstrate how the artist felt as he worked. You clearly enjoyed doing this project, every ink stroke demonstrates confidence and energy, I am very impressed.

I spend a major chunk of every week thinking of fresh ways to talk about Jesus on Sunday morning. It's not easy. How do we tell the old, old story without turning it into the stale story, the irrelevant story, or—worst of all—the boring story? I've been at it for thirty years and I'm pretty good at making the good news fresh and appealing. At least I thought so until Robert Luedke came along. Now I suddenly feel like a rookie.

This author/artist has figured out that the comic book—uh, I mean the graphic storytelling art form—is perfect for reaching the MTV/DVD/DSL generation. Take it from a serious lifelong comic book reader who also has a number of theological letters after his name, 'Acts of the Spirit' will connect with your youth group, your Sunday School classes, even with kids who don't know the old story and wouldn't be caught dead reading the Bible. Buy two copies for every youth in your church, one for them to keep and one to pass along to an unchurched friend.

This fresh and faithful take on the Bible, features a high-intrigue framing story, excellent research, vibrant faith and, yes, the pictures. Robert Luedke has lovingly translated the story of the early church into a visual format that resonates with contemporary culture.

After you've devoured this book, you'll want to search out the first volume in the Eye Witness Trilogy. As for me, I'm waiting for number three. It can't come soon enough to suit me.
