This interview will be on “St. Louis on the Air” over the noon hour Monday. This story will be updated after the show. Listen live.

In the greatest hits of Christianity, the Father and the Son get all the fame. One sacrifices his only offspring for the good of the world; the other takes on all the sins of mankind and suffers a terrible death – only to be resurrected in glory. You can see why their stories have taken center stage for thousands of years.

And then there is the Holy Spirit. This fleshless being is portrayed as the breath of God, the soft voice that helps us see God. It may seem a lot less exciting.

St. Louis artist John Hendrix argues that the Holy Spirit is always worth your time. In her alluring new graphic novel, ” The Holy Spirit “, he presents us with a charming, accessible and insightful mind. In some ways, he does for this underrated part of the Godhead what Charles M. Schulz did for beagles.

Monday Saint Louis live, Hendrix will speak of “The Holy Spirit”. Professor of art at the Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts at the University of Washington and chair of its MFA in Illustration & Visual Culture program, he is also the author of numerous children’s books, including “John Brown: His Fight for Freedom”. “Miracle Man: The Jesus Story” and “The Faithful Spy: Dietrich Bonhoeffer and the Plot to Kill Hitler”.
