Welcome to the Bible Bookshelf

The Bible is like a library of books. There are 66 books, written by 40 authors, in 3 languages, over a period of 1,400 years. Together, these books tell the story of God's ongoing promise to make all things new. Over the years I have created at least one cartoon illustration for each book of the Bible (some books have many), along with a brief description. Click on the shelves to dig deeper into that genre, or look below to access individual books directly.

Enjoy!
