The Truth Is Out There is a unique series of Catholic graphic novels that combine sci-fi storylines and quirky humor with solid catechesis and apologetics. Perfect for thoughtful teens, young adults, and anyone who appreciates a fun and different way to learn about the Faith.
In book one, The Truth Is Out There, interplanetary mailmen Brendan and Erc wrestle with questions about God, Jesus, and the Church while battling space pirates.
The Big Picture sees our heroes going deeper into the Faith and learning about salvation history as they face off against a lunar megalomaniac with a messiah complex.
In The Weapons of War, Brendan and Erc are now fully initiated Catholics called upon to help Christians on Mars overcome the tyrannical plans of its secularist rulers—with the help of the seven sacraments!
These books are so appealing, we guarantee if you just leave them sitting around, someone in the household will pick them up and read…and better yet, enjoy and learn from them.They are also great catechetical tools for Youth Ministry, College Classrooms, Campus Outreach, High School Programs, RCIA and Parish Family Programs and more!
I grew up reading Marvel and DC comics, and I have read ton of manga and graphic novels so I can say with I am an expert, and these books are really great story telling, well developed characters, yet what find the most extraordinary is how Amadeus, the author, is capable to explain theology and apologetics in a fun and at the same time exciting way. He was without doubt divinely inspired. The visual narration gets better with each book and I even used it to explain several concepts in classes, my students who are in their early teens really liked the books! I am buying more bundles to give away.
I can't get enough of these books! They are thoroughly engrossing, as well as wonderfully informative of Catholic doctrine. I wish there were more forthcoming. Long live Brendan and Erc!
Thank you for bringing awesome bookstore the readers! My kids enjoyed these a lot!
As a Catholic teenager myself, it's sad to see how many of my of my friends and acquaintances lack extremely basic knowledge about our Faith. The result of this is that many people raised Catholic are leaving the Church or falling into serious errors. I honestly think that these books are one of the best tools for reaching out to young people who are skeptical or indifferent to the Catholic Faith. With an engaging graphic novel design and a fun plot, these books will entertain while at the same time making strong and rational arguments for our beliefs. For those who are stronger in their Faith, these books will deepen your knowledge of philosophy and theology, while also equipping you to counter the common arguments used against our beliefs. I hope that every young person reads these books and is inspired to see the Truth of the Catholic Faith!
