Floyd JohnsonUpstate NYAge: 55-65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5A Super Study Bible for the Young Teen or the Young At HeartOctober 20, 2015Floyd JohnsonUpstate NYAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Using the same artist, The Action Bible ESV Study Bible is aimed at a slightly older population than the earlier Action Bible. Including the complete text of the ESV, an abundance of self study devotional questions, and a few snippets of the visuals that defined the earlier work. A variety of indexes add additional value to the book.
While the earlier Action Bible appears to be designed for the 9-12 year old child, this version would appear to be designed for the junior high or middle school student. Note, this differs slightly from the publishers recommendations, who suggests slightly younger age groups for each of the two books. Having said that, it should also be noted that the devotional material may be encouraging to Christians of any age from 12 on up. With the assistance of parents, it may even be useable by younger children.
The devotional self study material consists of Bible memory suggestions, answers to tough questions about faith, brief insights to important Bible passages or events, trivia questions, historical insights, application helps, and more. Those sections also illustrated in the Action Bible are marked in the margins of the current book for cross reference if desired. Much of this material is also indexed for future reference.
Though I am within a few weeks of reaching my normal retirement age, I found this version of enough interest and help to install the e-book I received on my e-reader for regular access and easy reading. I suspect many other readers will want to do the same.
This review is based on a free electronic copy provided by the publisher for the purpose of creating this review. The opinions expressed are my own.

Christina5 Stars Out Of 5Absolutely perfect for preteens!August 30, 2015ChristinaQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This Action Bible in ESV Study Bible form is probably the best Bible I have come across for elementary and preteen children. In this day and age, it takes a lot to keep a kid's attention, with all the video games and other entertainment available to them. This book has a perfect balance of whole Scripture in plain, easy-to-understand English thanks to the ESV, and illustrations and study notes that are interesting, creative, and captivating. I purchased this for my 11 year old little brother who has never had his own Bible. He is an avid video gamer and he LOVES cartoons. I haven't given it to him yet, but my dad and mama say he will love it (he is in another state so I am going to wait to give it to him).
I have exactly one misgiving with this Bible. The pages are so thin that you can easily see the words and illustrations on the other side of the page and sometimes that makes the Bible very hard to read. Also, when I filled out the To/From section in the beginning of the Bible, the indent and the ink went right through the page, and showed on the other side of that page which happens to be where the family tree is. So now it will look really messy if he fills out the family tree. But really the readability is my main concern. I think he will be ok with it, but it can look busy with seeing the things on the next page.
For a Bible that is less than 20 dollars, it is an excellent choice. I would recommend this for any preteen and am overall extremely pleased. I hope that in the future, the pages are a little more dense so the readability is better.
