We do not know when this series, "Tales from the Great Book" started, or even when it concluded, but
it obviously followed the Bible account in Genesis faithfully. You can
find that out by comparing it to the Scriptures in Genesis yourself. This
comic series may have provided the only Bible knowledge for masses of
young people and also adults who took this particular newspaper in the 1960s
and before and also afterwards too. It was the only form of the Bible and the Gospel
they may have come into contact with if they were raised, as most people in the Pacific
Northwest were and still are, in godless, unbelieving, unChristian and pagan homes.
Thank God for the witness that his comic series provided. It may well have pointed
a seeking person to the truth of the Bible, and more than one too! The Bible
declares that when the Word goes forth, it never returns void (or unproductive and
unfruitful). So this comic series produced real fruit, real human souls that
were ultimately redeemed. We can be sure of that fact, for the Scriptures
speak truly, all the time, and are living proof.
All we have is one issue of the newspaper's comic series of this particular comic.
The following segment is titled: "Days of Violence." From Genesis, you can
read yourself what those "Days of Violence" actually were. They were exciting
stuff for a comic series, no doubt about it. Abraham led a very exciting life, and
went down as one of the greatest individuals in history. Even Julius Caesar who conquered
Gaul and other regions for Rome and became the greatest general of Rome and created the dynasty of
the Caesars that included Rome's first and greatest emperor, Caesar Augustus, or Octavian,
is lesser known today than Abraham.
