The Chosen: Volume 2: Stir Up the Water (Graphic Novel) Volume 2

Dallas Jenkins

"Stretch out your hand," Jesus commanded the man.

Everyone stared in awe as Jesus miraculously transformed what was curled and withered into a strong, capable, healthy hand.

The people were amazed. But they also had questions.

Where did Jesus get the power to heal the masses and exorcise demons? Why did He associate with outcasts and sinners? What did He mean when He said, "Blessed are the meek, the lowly, the persecuted"? Why wasn't he scared of the religious leaders who opposed Him--and ultimately plotted His demise?

This second volume in The Chosen graphic novel series, Stir Up the Water, will captivate comic book lovers of all ages and point them to the One who isn't afraid to challenge--and upend--the status quo.
