Young boys and girls need heroes - brave men and women who fight against evil with powerful weapons and supernatural strength. Think this only happens in the movies or comic books? Think again. The Bible is full of super heroes - Noah's Ark, Moses defying Pharaoh and parting the Red Sea, Deborah leading the war cry, Samson's jawbone, David's slingshot, and the miracles of Jesus - the ultimate superhero of all time. The NIrV Super Heroes Bible is a full-text Bible in the New International Reader's Version written at a third grade reading level. With a 3-D effect on the cover and metallic ink on the interior tip-ins, the intense, action packed art by Dennis Jones pops off the pages and into the 21st century. Over 200 character sketches of Bible men, women, and kids - from Genesis to Revelation - are scattered throughout, helping children learn what it takes to be a hero of faith. Special character builders called "Power Surge" highlight Bible verses that show character traits, like bravery, truthfulness, and faith.
