One reason that Paul Asay wanted to write God on the Streets of Gotham (Tyndale House) was because Batman was “only the coolest superhero on the planet.” The book touches on the evil characters Batman faces, “which translate remarkably into sins and temptations,” Asay says, and “I talk about how Batman deals with pain and discouragement and doubt, something I think all of us experience as Christians.”

Ultimately, Asay hopes “the book might help folks with whatever walk of faith they’re on … and maybe, for those who struggle with their faith or have a hard time translating their belief into real life, it might make them see God and Christianity in a slightly different light.”
