From the New York Times bestselling and award-winning artist John Hendrix comes The Holy Ghost, a charming, funny, and thought-provoking collection of spiritual comics.
Foreword by Patrick McDonnell
Does God exist? Is there a heaven? What’s the point of it all? Do we even matter?
This collection of thought-provoking, humorous comic strips is a series of conversations between a squirrel, a badger, and a friendly blue ghost who may or may not be one third of the Holy Trinity. Charming, witty, and at times poignant, yet never holier-than-thou, John Hendrix tackles some of life’s greatest questions.
Whether you consider yourself faithful or a nonbeliever, these delightfully off-kilter comics deliver laughter, comfort, and philosophical musings with humble, honest spirit—and just the right dose of playful irreverence.
