What do I think?
What I like most about this Bible is it uses more graphics than words. For young children this story Bible would be incredible because they can both read the simple dialogue and descriptions and be able to see the action happening. I simply love the recent attempts at producing more and more graphic children’s story Bibles. However, if you are looking at this Bible as similar to The Action Bible, then you’ll be disappointed. The Action Bible is intense and intended for an older elementary audience. This graphic Bible seems to be more in line with Asian anime. In my opinion, it is subtle and tasteful for younger children. I think they would love it.
The “Power Bible” seems to accurately tell the story of the Bible, but the writers do take liberty with the dialogue and interpretations. Remember, this is not the biblical text, it is an adapted storied version of the Bible meant for a young audience. So everyone using a children’s Bible needs to be aware that when wondering whether or not something is interpreted correctly, go to the source of the story and check it out for yourself.
What I don’t like about this children’s story Bible is that it comes in a 10-part series, and each book costs around $12-13 each, with the whole compilation running you a little over $100. That’s a lot of money to invest in a story book series. If you really, really like this story Bible, then I’d bet you’d be willing to fork over that kind of money over time. But with all the other options available out there is “children’s Bible publishing land” this 10-part series seems rather expensive.
This is the point where I would write a suggestion to the publisher. And I was going to write that these stories would make great animated videos. Then I found out that they had a website and I discovered that they have produced some videos:
