I’ve been waiting patiently to highlight The Action Bible!
I would have drooled over this Bible and read it from cover-to-cover if this graphic story Bible had been available when I was in 3rd or 4th grade. I mean it is awesome! There are pictures for every part of a story with action and word bubbles all around. I would have known that it was a graphic novel about the Bible, but I definitely wouldn’t have not read it because it was the Bible. The illustrator, Sergio Cariello, does a phenomenal job of making the action of the stories in Scripture come alive in a way that would capture the imagination of an older elementary, preteen and even middle school student.
Here’s the description on the back cover of this story Bible:
The Action Bible includes over 200 fast-paced narratives in chronological order, making it easy to follow the Bible’s historical flow–and reinforcing the buildup to its thrilling climax.
The stories in The Action Bible communicate biblical truth clearly and forcefully to contemporary readers. This compelling blend of clear writing plus dramatic images offers an appeal that crosses all age boundaries.
Let this epic rendition draw you into all the excitement of the world’s most awesome story.
