    The Good The artwork in this volume is amazing every frame is very detailed and features great shading effects This book also does a good job of putting Bible stories in kid friendly terms, and uses both well known and obscure parts of the source material Not only that, but, it also references the Apocrypha, which is good for readers like me who are unfamiliar with it All that saidThe Bad The lettering could have used some work I understand that the words are easier to put in via a com The Good The artwork in this volume is amazing every frame is very detailed and features great shading effects This book also does a good job of putting Bible stories in kid friendly terms, and uses both well known and obscure parts of the source material Not only that, but, it also references the Apocrypha, which is good for readers like me who are unfamiliar with it All that saidThe Bad The lettering could have used some work I understand that the words are easier to put in via a computer than by hand, but, it made some of the important expressions i.e., the writing on the wall in Daniel, or the cries of the crowd to crucify Christ less impacting than they could have been Not only that, but, the section for Revelation was a joke a book full of strange visuals and prophecies, and all we get is three pages Some people may have a problem with the Apocrypha being referenced in this work The biggest problem, though, was that, in many of the stories, too much was implied instead of shown If you re doing a graphic novel, you need to show us, not tell us Conclusion A great concept, but a merely decent product Kids who enjoy Bible stories will probably love this I liked it to a degree, but, it could have been better Still, I must give Sergio Carello kudos for undertaking such a massive project in order to bring God s Word to the new generation

    The Action Bible is a comic book style picture Bible for children ages 5 8, though older children will also enjoy it I d personally call this book Biblical fiction rather than a Bible since extra Biblical comments, commentary, and historical information was worked into the book s summary of Biblical events Also, some Biblical events were left out Sexual content and gore was largely smoothed over using euphemism or implication or skipped entirely.I really liked that the events were in ch The Action Bible is a comic book style picture Bible for children ages 5 8, though older children will also enjoy it I d personally call this book Biblical fiction rather than a Bible since extra Biblical comments, commentary, and historical information was worked into the book s summary of Biblical events Also, some Biblical events were left out Sexual content and gore was largely smoothed over using euphemism or implication or skipped entirely.I really liked that the events were in chronological order and shown in their historical setting Several psalms were worked into David s life story and several proverbs into Solomon s story The prophets gave their summarized prophecies during the actual events where they were given, and Paul s summarized letters were shown as written when they really were written during his travels There were even some maps of Paul s missionary travels Also, the Old Testament flowed into the New Testament through a brief and clearly marked as not in the Bible historical summary of the events that happened between the two So the Bible came across as a continuous historical account of God relating to man with a redemptive plan in action rather than as disconnected morality tales about heroes of the past.I was also very impressed by the vivid, detailed illustrations The illustrator did an excellent job of correctly showing the character s age, ethnicity, and culture The illustrations were a lotaccurate than other Children s Bibles I ve seen.And, best of all, children really will read this book without prompting by their parents I m testing it on two boys ages 5 10 The report for day 1 is that whenever they weren t running around, they were looking at this Bible.However, like most children s storybooks, the stories in The Action Bible were only based on the Bible The author always indicated based on Judges 16 1 20 or whatever verses and, overall, did a good job accurately summarizing the Bible accounts But the author s interpretation is a part of the text Those highly familiar with the Bible are likely to come across several places where they won t precisely agree with the wording used or they ll wish that some point that was omitted or implied wasclearly stated But, again, that s usually true.As long as parents don t neglect teaching the actual Bible, The Action Bible is an excellent foundational overview of the Bible that children simply aren t getting any other place, including at church I d highly recommend this Action Bible for use with elementary aged children instead of children s story books.I received this book as a review copy from the publisher

    My boys have been reading The Brick Bible, which illustrates the Old and New Testaments with Lego While it s very well done it s also very graphic, and I m not entirely comfortable with some of the depictions of blood and war for my 9 and 7 year old kids.The ACTION BIBLE is awesome It s like a comic book, with exciting illustrations and dialogue The stories are retold in a minimalist style, and the books chapters verses are called out, so if you want to go back to a real Bible to My boys have been reading The Brick Bible, which illustrates the Old and New Testaments with Lego While it s very well done it s also very graphic, and I m not entirely comfortable with some of the depictions of blood and war for my 9 and 7 year old kids.The ACTION BIBLE is awesome It s like a comic book, with exciting illustrations and dialogue The stories are retold in a minimalist style, and the books chapters verses are called out, so if you want to go back to a real Bible to reference the story, you can look it up.I read this one cover to cover this weekend to make sure it sappropriate for my boys And I highly recommend it

    I ve always been intimidated by the Bible I m not in any way saying this a replacement, but I think it s good for younger people to read first so that they touch the surface of God s work and know generally what every Christian should know It will help ease them into the Bible I loved the action Bible I loved the artwork and the graphic novel idea of it Good work, Mauss

    This book s best qualities are its worst ones too Kids will love to look at it, and I like that it draws them in There are, though, obvious problems with reading the Bible through an action hero lens, and sometimes the hermeneutics are just odd Nonetheless, glad I own it for the fascination it provides, especially to the boys.

    The Action Bible by Doug Mauss has different stories from the bible in a whole new way, in comic form Some of the stories people included are Adam and Eve, as well as Abraham and Mosese Also in the first few few pages, it includes how God created the world I recommend this book to all people of all kind, because I wantpeople to believe in the one true god, and it is also a really great book Thank you Doug for making this comic of some bible stories.
