"God on the Streets of Gotham" by Paul Asay

Batman has been popular throughout many generations for a reason. His exploits have captured our imagination and kept us wanting more. In his new book, "God on the Streets of Gotham: What the Big Screen Batman Can Teach Us About God and Ourselves," Paul Asay takes us for a walk down memory lane, touching on the history and life of Batman. But, Mr. Asay does more here. He also shows comparisons between the life of a pretend superhero with our real life superhero - Jesus. What type of comparisons can there be? you might ask. Well, there were/are villains to defeat, people to save, and goodness to find and nurture; there was also persecution and love. Come take a walk on the streets of your town and see how the message of this book  can illuminate your thinking.

I selected this book because the title intrigued me, and I have to say that I really enjoyed it. So many times we forget the power we have on our side as Christians, but we do have power. This book helps to remind us that with God on our side, evil will be defeated. It was fun reliving the history of Batman, and it brought back many great memories. If you enjoy books that will help you think outside the box, and encourage you, this book is right for you. I received my free review copy from Tyndale House Publishers for an honest review.
