Illustrator John Hendrix’s picture book Miracle Man: The Story of Jesus gathered rave reviews three years ago.

Hendrix, a Presbyterian Church in America elder, has a secular publisher that has never made an issue of his spiritual themes. “Christians are a market, and my editor recognizes that,” he says.
