Sometime last year I won a copy of John Hendrix’s Miracle Man from my friend Adam’s Illustrated Children’s ministry, which by the way you should check out and order some coloring posters/curriculum cause its great. Anyway, I love John Hendrix’s illustrations and his focus on Jesus as the Miracle Man. It makes the child and grown-up narrator fall in love with Jesus in a whole new way.
It was Lincoln’s obession for a while. My only criticism is theological. The last line of the book is “but the Miracle Man had one last miracle…” and the picture is of the resurrection. After such a compelling story, that line was so disappointing to me. What about Act 2? Also known as the Acts of the Apostles. The Miracle Man was not done with miracles but only getting started. As followers of Jesus today, we can still call on the Miracle Man to heal! What a disappointment to have to re-write that last page myself.
Still, mad props to John Hendrix for his creativity.
