The Action Bible - Expanded Edition
First, you must understand this is not a Bible; in fact, there is only a smattering of actual Bible text in the entire Action Bible. But it is the book I have reached for time and time again in the Sunday school class I co-teach with Pearl. Many of the children that visit have never been in a church before, and what better take-home than a story Bible that will grip their attention and propel them to want to know more?
Grasp the Flow of Redemptive History
With a focus on 230+ breath-taking events of the Bible, the Action Bible will give any child a foundational grasp of the flow of redemptive history. With rich coloring, bold and energetic designs, and emotionally charged figures, the Action Bible is the perfect choice for today's visually focused culture.
Over 750 Full-color Pages with Contemporary Illustrations
Glossing over any truly inappropriate material of an adult nature, the over-750-page Action Bible employs dialog boxes and dynamic, kid-friendly artwork to engage young readers with soul-stirring stories of the action heroes of the Bible. The Action Bible is sure to be a family favorite for years to come.

I love the content and readability of this bible book for my eight year old boy but because it is so big and heavy it is not as easy to hold and travel with as I would have hoped.
One of the things we adults have loved best about this bible is that it doesn't sugar coat the events and it's not all the same stories told in most picture bibles. The graphic novel style makes it perfect for early readers 3rd grade and up! My children were often caught reading this at bedtime when they first learned to read.
My son and I love it!!! It is easy to read and the pictures are amazing!!! Makes bible study fun!!
