- What version of the Bible does the Kingstone Bible use?
The Kingstone Bible is a graphic adaptation of Scripture and we do not use any one version. We place Scripture at the bottom of the pages so readers can look up the accompanying Scripture in whatever version they use. We will sometimes utilize sentences or phrases from popular versions such as KJV, NKJV, NIV, ESV, TLB or HCSB but the Kingstone Bible is primarily a graphic adaptation and interpretation of Scripture.
- What is the doctrinal position regarding Scripture held by Kingstone?
The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired by God and is God's revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter. Therefore, all Scripture is totally true and trustworthy. It reveals the principles by which God judges us, and therefore is, and will remain to the end of the world the true center of Christian union, and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and religious opinions should be tried. All Scripture is a testimony to Christ, who is Himself the focus of divine revelation.
- Is this an accurate telling of Scripture?
Yes. The graphic Bible has been vetted by many Bible scholars, pastors and people familiar with the Bible. We get high marks on Scriptural accuracy.
- Who is the Publisher?
The Publisher of the Kingstone Bible and Kingstone Comics is Art Ayris, who has a 30-year history as a Southern Baptist pastor in a local church.
- What is the doctrinal position on creation?
Kingstone subscribes to and believes the physical evidence points to a younger earth view in regards a divine and unique generation of all created life. We further confirm the Scriptural admonition that mankind is created in the image of God.
- How were the artists selected?
Almost all of the Kingstone artists have previously worked with Marvel or DC. We used over 40 artists on the Kingstone Bible. We chose a western styled comic look instead of a manga or anime style. We felt the most complete graphic adaptation of Scripture ever done deserved the best artists we could afford. Kingstone is continuing to make adjustments to the graphic Bible and regularly generates new editions and comic art.
