Publisher's Summary

Comic Superheroes embody the hopes of a world that is desperate for a savior. But those comic creations do not have what it takes to save us from our greatest foes - sin and death.

Jesus Christ is able to save us because he is all that the Bible says that he is, fully human and fully divine. According to the logic of the gospel, Jesus must be everything the Bible says that he is so that he can do everything the Bible says that he does.

Throughout the history of the Church there have been bad ideas, misconceptions, and heretical presentations of Jesus. Each one of these heresies fails to present Jesus as the Bible reveals him.   And each one of these heresies is embodied in a different comic superhero.

Using a comic superhero as an illustration of each heresy, Superheroes Can’t Save You presents a history of the deficient view of Jesus; an investigation of contemporary proponents of that heresy; warnings on how contemporary Christians can unwittingly fall into such bad thinking of Jesus; a biblically faithful correction on who Jesus is; and an explanation of why it is important that we understand who Jesus actually is.

Many Christians may not understand the language and vocabulary of theological terms like hypostatic union, person, or essence. But they do know who Superman, Batman, and other superheroes are. By comparing something everybody already knows (who the Superheroes are) with what they need to know (who Jesus is), this audiobook makes vitally important Christian truths understandable, applicable, and heartwarming to a wide audience.

Real Jesus as Explained by Lover of Superheroes

This book was simply fantastic. Todd Miles gets an A plus for his great research, thorough explanations, and engaging style of writing. While this book introduces various superheroes, you by no means need to be a comic book lover to appreciate this book. Miles helpfully explains how various christological heresies got it wrong throughout history and why they continue to be popular misrepresentations of Jesus today. But he does this in a very unique and thought-provoking way.

If you love Marvel comic books and movies and you love Jesus, this is the perfect book for you!
