It didn't take him very long to read it. I feel this book could be read in a short time by any intermediate or experienced reader. This book is a compilation of many different comic strips that star Captain Absolutely. I couldn't believe how this book kept Josh's focus. He couldn't put it down. He loves to read about superheroes and this is one hero I didn't mind him wanting to be like.
I asked Josh to write down who Captain Absolutely was and this is what he said:
"Josiah King was a normal man until his friend made a reactor explode. Josiah was saved from the explosion by hiding in a room that had a bunch of Bibles in it. Josiah received special powers that day and his eyes were forever opened to the Word of God. He was now Captain Absolutely. He wanted to defend the Truth. He was willing to fight for what is right."
Josh then went on to tell us about Captain Absolutely's sidekick Hana Lin:
"She was a girl that was rescued by Captain Absolutely. After he rescued her, she got saved and invented a flame suit that she could use to help him in his daily conquest to battle for truth and justice."
After he finished the book I asked him to write down what he thought. Here is what he had to say:
"The book was awesome. It taught me a lot about the Bible. It wasn't too long, so I enjoyed reading it and was able to read it quickly. The story was a real page-turner. It kept my attention. It had great characters and the drawings were very detailed. I loved the lessons it taught throughout the entire book. I think it's a great way to teach children about the Bible and it's Truth."
I feel that he really gave us some great knowledge of the book without revealing the storyline too much. We wouldn' t want to ruin it for others 😊
I am so happy that they are creating material like this for our young people. They need more creative resources that share God's Word with our pre-teens and early teenagers. I feel this book was just what we need in our society today. A godly hero to look up to. We should encourage our children to stand up for what is right and not be afraid to fight for the Truth.
