    This review was written for The Action Bible.
    Some persons view telling the Bible's story's and truths through this type of artwork as being "disrespectful", but those same persons may have taught Sunday School or a midweek youth class with much less visually appealing artwork or by using the old flannel board teaching method or have/do condone that methods. What is the difference there other than that this Bible story compilation tells the stories of God's truth in a more beautiful and visually descriptive manner that is excellent in it's genre? The illustrations are gorgeous and his style of art is wonderfully executed. There are some pieces of artwork in this book that are totally stunning and that caused me to stare at it in sheer awe because of the intricate work that must have taken hours upon hours to complete. He visualized so much and I'm sure, being an artist myself, could not fully implement all that was before his soul's eye. He truly shared part of his soul with us via this his paramount artwork.

    Although this book skips through and vaguely covers the Word from Creation to Tribulation, it is NOT God's Word. However, it CONTAINS God's Holy Word; but it is not a type of or version of God's Holy Word. I do not see why it claims to be a Bible, because it is not a Bible. It is however a fascinatingly and gorgeously illustrated book of illustrations that graphically tells the reader Bible storys galore.

    I would think that any one, a young child aged 5 to an adult, would be able to enjoy this book for what it is. I would encourage parents of younger children, aged 5 to 10 years old, to bring this book forward in attempt to do two things:

    1. To give them, or allow them to use, a book to read that will encourage their interest in the Bible to flourish & grow, and

    2. To help prod new or intermediately skilled readers onward toward better reading skills through a fun and exciting way.

    (Not to mention sharpening the pencils of their imagination).

    If you can pick this Bible up for $20 or less, in my opinion, it is a great bargain and even at $30 it is worth the money but that is pushing the envelope on price.

    If you desire a Bible with words to guide your mind's eye then look elsewhere. But if you want a book that is a collection of biblically based graphic art at its best then look no further, you've just found it.

    I gave my copy to a missionary who was very interested in it, therefore I am going to purchase this enjoyable book on this site at HALF of the cost of what I paid for it in a store's book section a couple of years ago.

    I hope that this review has helped you in your decision of whether to buy this finely illustrated and scripted book or not.

    I cannot express how grateful I am for having found this amazing graphic Bible. My son first was given one at the boys group at our church. After seeing his interest and knowledge grow we started buying them as gifts for others.

    I told a Christian colleague at the public school that I work at about The Action Bible and she asked me to get her one for her classroom library. "You can do that?" I asked her. I ended up putting one in my class library too.

    The following year my class copy was being fought over at reading time. I told a couple friends about my "problem" and they bought 5 more copies from CBD for my classroom. The kids cheered when I brought them into class.

    I used them to teach about Jesus' birth, death and resurrection ( we get to cover many different cultures, traditions and celebrations in our grade 2 curriculum, including Christian holidays).

    At the end of the year I called all of my students' parents and asked if I could give them each an Action Bible.

    I gave 19 bibles away last year in the last week of school. Many to children who have never been or will ever go to church.

    These Action Bibles will continue being a blessing for years to come.

    I bought this for my friend's son. He's 11-years-old, and I don't think there's one person in his life, other than myself, who has ever talked to him about Jesus or God. With all the horrible news about what will come to pass this September, I decided that now's the best time to reach him, and I am so glad I bought this book! In fact, I loved it so much that I bought one for myself!

    Now, this isn't a clear-cut "God's Word" version of the Bible. At all. There are no "begets" or family history names. A lot of the old laws have gone unmentioned, however, what this Bible lacks it more than makes up for in comprehension and explanation. A great starter Bible for adults and kids. Sometimes pictures DO help!

    I'm a grandmother who bought this for my 6 year old grandson...we really enjoy reading the stories together...but I also enjoy them on my own! I'm completely fascinated with all the illustrations and it's yet another version (not a translation) that I want to add to my OWN library! Because of the format, it does have to leave out minute details but it's ideal for getting the gist of our Bible's vast array of stories and characters. I highly recommend this book and you won't want to quit reading! As my title states, this is not just for kids if you enjoy illustrated versions of Bible stories (which I love).

    As a pastor, father, and graphic artist I can say that this is one of the most beautiful books ever created for kids and adults. Sergio Cariello's art grabs you on every page and the words of the Action Bible sink in to your heart and mind. It is an incredible supplement to your Bible and an amazing introduction to anyone wondering about the Bible. I have seen non-believers changed through reading it. I have seen Christians invigorated to getting back to reading of the Bible from it. AND I have heard of countless lives changed around the world from it. Unlike so many other "Bible books" out there it is accurate and captivating. At $25 (and cheaper on sale) it makes a PERFECT birthday or Christmas gift for anyone, regardless of their age. AND... with this NEW Expanded Edition you get 128 additional pages not in the original version. So yes... I whole heartedly recommend the NEWLY expanded ACTION BIBLE.
