Bible Stories, 1988

(Continued from 1987)

The latest retelling of the story of "Moses" continues.  This marked the 7th time the BOYS' LIFE series would cover this material.

I may be imagining things, but it seems to me Frank Bolle was putting more line detail into the strips this year.  Sadly, I couldn't find one Frank Bolle signature this entire year.  What is wrong with editors?

After nearly 10 years (assuming he started with the April 1979 episode), Frank Bolle finally tackles some of the most dramatic sequences in the entire Bible-- The Burning Bush, Passover, The Red Sea, and, of course, THE TEN COMMANDMENTS.  Every time I look over them lately, I'm reminded that there's still important ideas in there that are being far too sorely neglected by too many in our society TODAY.  Especially those in charge, or who think they are.   

"Honor your mother and father."  "You shall not murder."  "You shall not steal."  "You shall not give false witness against your neighbor."  And the real kicker-- "You shall not covet your neighbor's house nor anything that belongs to him."

Any society that thinks it can live without these concepts is bound to COLLAPSE under its own corruption.
