Jesus of Monroe makes "Way Weird Ohio"
Tuesday, January 24, 2006 9:28:18 PM - Monroe Ohio

The latest book in the 'Weird' series looks into Ohio's strangest people, places and things. And who would have guessed that the Giant Statue of Jesus would make the latest edition.

It's been covered by local, national and even international media. Now, the Solid Rock Church's "King of Kings" sculpture - a 62-foot-tall wood and Styrofoam rendering of Jesus's head and torso that reigns over a stretch of Interstate 75 in Monroe - has earned an entry in "Weird Ohio."

"I don't know how weird that is that a church would display Jesus," co-pastor Darlene Bishop says. "But you know, any advertising is good advertising."
