Churchianity Vs Christianity

Rated 5.00/5 based on 25 reviews
This is a comic book paraphrase of the book of Galatians, so the Smashword computers do not count words which are drawn into speech bubbles. Nevertheless, it is fairly short (26 pages). Churchianity vs Christianity uses modern situations (e.g. a church building instead of a synagogue, and reference to baptism instead of circumcision) to bring Paul's message forward into a 21st Century context.

Really like the way this comic presents the lessons from galations. I usually find the book a bit dry and somewhat difficult to understand so I was surprised to find a translation which made it quite interesting.

Cheers to the author!

It contains a lot of good teaching with a little bit of humor to make it more interesting. I would also recommend reading the Liberator by the same author.

I have read some comics in my time, but none like this one! You get a something new each time you read it...so much great detail in the artwork, not to mention the punchy message! Good stuff.

Vivid and pointed! It brings to life what Paul was really getting at in his epistle - there's no getting bogged down in religious terminology (indeed, setting people straight about the difference between religion and faith in God is what the book of Galatians is largely about).
Hopefully this comic will help enlighten people as to the difference between following a religion and following God. Nice work.

I liked the simplified language and the art is quite good! I don't generally enjoy reading the epistles, but this gave a very fresh look at St. Paul's writings.

Review by: Nigel Roberts on Oct. 19, 2013 :
It's refreshing to see someone connecting the other books of the New Testament to the central ethos of Jesus. Not many people are able to see the unity between the sermon on the mount and what the Apostles teach in the rest of the New Testament, but David Mckay brings it out well in this unique little piece of literature. A radical new perspective sorely needed by the 21st century Church.

What a delightful swipe at organised religion! Very funny, very irreverant, and very true.

Review by: Jason Hunt on Oct. 19, 2013 :
Nice comic. Very punchy!! It's amazing how people have made a religion out of Christianity instead of just following God directly without rituals. Nice pictures!

I was a bit dubious at first, but it sounded intriguing so I checked it out. I'm glad I did. It was great. Very funny and insightful. Well done Mckay.

This comic is awesome! What a great concept. I loved the modern slant that was given to the Apostle Paul; he wears contemporary clothing and uses a typewriter!

Besides being cute and fun to read, this booklet paraphrased the Scripture in an accurate and easily understood way.

I will often read anything with pictures, but this was one of the few worthwhile comics I have ever read.

Thanks!

What an interesting way to teach people about the things written in Paul's letter to the Galatians. It was well illustrated too. I should think this would be a great pamphlet for the younger generation.

Review by: John Barlow on Oct. 13, 2013 :
Brilliant read!

A poignantly straight shooter, with a comic edge.

It cuts through the tragic misconceptions of Christ like a karate champion's well precisioned chop cutting through the air that stands between him and his opponent!

And it's very nicely illustrated too.

An interesting little booklet. It gives one to think about what St. Paul said and could have meant.

Thanks for putting it out for free.

Interesting pictures depicting the book of Galations in a fresh and new way. Looking forward to more publications from the same author. Good stuff!

I am not a reader of comics usually, but this comic grabbed my attention.

I found out that it is a really meaningful, challenging comic, with an important message.

I definitely recommend it!

Nicely done. I enjoyed reading this little comic, and found it helpful in getting a better understanding of scripture. They do say that a picture speaks a thousand words! :)

It's got a good balance of humour while still trying to convey important and deep issues. I'd certainly recommend it for a quick entertaining, yet challenging read, which can be fitted in with your tea and biscuit break.

I'm not a big fan of comic books, but McKay's novels were so good it got me curious. Glad I checked it out. Takes less than half an hour to read from cover to cover (and I'm a slow reader).

Review by: DeadlyYorker on Oct. 11, 2013 :
What a great idea to put the entire book of Galatians in comic form. I loved it.

It makes the book of Galatians much easier to understand, when there are pictures explaning the issues. Well done.

Wow, very neat little comic. Short but powerful. An excellent read; entertaining, but also packing a lot of significant truths into one short pamphlet. Two thumbs up!
