Like all of Pekar’s work, it’s a true story, an act of personal journalism.
As such, it’s interesting to compare the two.
Clearly the same story, the same event, the same personalities, but just as clearly, differences between the two versions.
This is kinda what I'm getting at when I urge people to re-read their Bibles carefully.
I believe more than ever that the Bible is True.
But I also know it has been filtered through human perspectives.
We have to take all that into account.
Acknowledging that truth in no way impedes the bigger Truth.
