Iconia: Is God blood thirsty, genocidal and green-skinned?

Menachem Wecker reviews the Comic Torah at his Iconia blog. Bottom line:

Anyone who has spent time cutting their teeth on the original Hebrew will soon recognize that beneath the surface of the irreverence, informality and seemingly random interpretations lies a serious, personal and very contemporary struggle with the meaning of the texts.

It is my hunch that anyone who takes a copy of Comic Torah to synagogue as a companion to the bible for following along during the weekly Sabbath Torah readings will not only not be disappointed, but might just also end up having some rare insights to share with their colleagues after the service.

Be sure to look at the full review, if only to read the responses from readers of the Houston Chronicle, where Menachem's blog appears.
