Last weekend I was speaking at the NW Ministry Conference and one of my buddies who works for David C. Cook gave me a copy of the Action Bible. I knew I had something good in my hands when I read it to my two oldest kids that night and was immediately met with, “Come on Dad…can’t we read just one more story?” We have now read two nights and are on page 50!
The Action Bible was illustrated by Sergio Cariello who has worked for both Marvel and DC Comics. Simply put: It is written well, illustrated beautifully, engages kids, and is true to the Biblical narrative. Here’s the promo:
In talking with another Cook guy at a different conference last month, he said he was nervous that the promo might be a bit of an oversell…before he actually SAW the Action Bible. Then he saw it, loved it, and they’ve been watching it fly off the shelves ever since. (NOTE: I just checked Amazon and it’s in the top 100 Christian books, and the top 1000 of ALL Amazon books.)
Bottom line: If you’ve got a kid under the age of 14, get this Bible and give it to them. Or better yet…read it together.
What are the amazing kids’ Bibles you’ve seen? What other Bible resources have you found for you kids and students?
