The Action BibleI’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.

  1. The graphics for this Bible look really fun and interesting. Can’t wait to check them out.

  2. It is often difficult to get boys interested in reading anything let alone the Bible. The Action Bible puts the Scripture into a format that will grab and hold the attention of boys who love comic books and graphic novels! This will be an added resource for our ministry!

    1. Yes… boys at this age have a tough time reading a book, let alone an ancient book about a culture to which they are utterly unfamiliar! This graphic novel does a great job “holding their attention”!

  3. Oooh! Pictures! Colors! Action! My kind of Bible!!!! What a way to engage overactive boys!!!

  4. This is an awesome too to visually make the Word come alive. It captures the imagination of kids and has a visual appeal that speaks the language of a child’s heart. We have given them out to almost all of our families at Victory and it has been so well received. I’d love to share another copy with another Church and spur them on as they work to making an excellent ministry.

  5. I will give this Bible to our Children’s Church leader to use. She’s giving away new Bibles to all the kids that come to church.

  6. Looks like a great resource! I would send it to my grandson in NC for encouragement.

  7. Three boys in our children’s ministry have been impacted in BIG ways by this Bible. They are excited to open it and read stories and are much more engaged in the lessons when they can find the story in their Bible. At our church’s ministry house, kids come in and look straight for the Action Bible and can’t wait to hear which story we can read. I would use this Bible as a tool to help kids that haven’t been able to afford this Bible at our innercity church, have access to it on a weekly basis!

  8. I will use it to put on my first child’s bookshelf, not pushing her towards it. But I will be relatively silently hoping she will pick it up and love the content without it being forced upon her.
