I highly recommend buying an illustrated Bible. Not only is the artwork excellent but even the writings of the stories is scriptural. I bought it for a child but I found myself reading it. I honestly recommend it to anyone who is having a hard time reading through the Bible to get one of these and you'll find yourself enjoying the stories and not wanting to put it down. It is truly a high quality Bible. And it's great for the intended audience too - kids! Buy it for a friend. Buy if for a child. Buy it for yourself! You'll be glad you did.
I bought this bible for my 7 1/2 year old son. I didn't realize that the artist had worked for Marvel comics and it shows. It is a real achievement in visual storytelling. My son has already read through the whole bible! It is true to scripture and is very accessible to children.
