The stories we don't tell


Some Bible stories can be hard to read because they accurately depict man's sinful nature. Tamar's story (Gen 38) is one of those stories. In this story, Tamar is denied her only avenue of security and she response by blackmailing her oppressor. Rather than looking for righteous hero in this story, we might do well to let it remind us that systems of oppression produce desperate people who need our care.

Each of the cartoons on this site is an expression of a sermon I heard in church. As a cartoonist, my method of understanding complex theological topics is to boil them down to simple images.

These images will never do justice to the sermons from which they are derived, but hopefully, they convey at least one aspect of those sermons to you, the reader.

I hope that you gain some benefit from the cartoons and will reuse them in ways that honor Christ.
