A Gospel Story
A Revolutionary Vision of Jesus and the Gospel
A brand-new graphic novel
This book is a daring look at the Jesus of history: His heart, his passion, his humanity…
And it’s a cracking adventure set in the Holy Land— with wise prophets, sneaky thieves and ruthless Romans!
“It is clear Fujishima has devoted plenty of research
into the early Christian church and strives for historical authenticity…
Teenagers and young adults will enjoy this exciting retelling of the Gospel story.”
Tim Lam, Crosslight (Uniting Church in Australia)
“…an alternative view of Jesus, one that is much more human…
[The] beautifully illustrated scenery places the reader
and all their senses solidly in the midst of a Middle Eastern world.”
Wendy Hu-Au, Inheritance Magazine
“[Fujishima is] using new perspectives, via evocative illustrations,
to challenge ideas about how the Bible has been presented to readers,
even while maintaining the central concepts that make the Bible so compelling.”
Abby Olscese, Sojourners Online
Jesus before the Bible
This is a story of brave young men who stood up for justice in the face of oppression.
A story of hope in a tormented land… hope for a divine age of healing and liberation they called the Reign of God.
The Revolution is Here
Jerusalem is burning. Shimon—the last surviving disciple of Jesus—is searching for his lost son. He might get crucified. But he will tell this story of faith and friendship one last time…

I believe the Jesus of history was
a man of incredible courage.
Creating this book,
I fell in love with him again—
the maverick hungry for justice,
the poet caring for the
most neglected people on earth.
His way is one of radical
transformation through love.
Issey Fujishima, author
