From the Foreward

“Eichinger reveals a vast treasury involving hero themes and the great myths of the past with electrifying insights. God, in His permissive provenance, might well have allowed the victorious theme to pulse through literature, from the authors of ancient epics to motion picture screenplays, novels, and even comic book heroes, to help an unbelieving world become more receptive to God’s mission in saving the world through the greatest adventure of all in the story of the Lord of Legends.”
—Paul L. Maier
