It's a Bible, It's a Comic Book...It's The Action Bible:The Battle Begins {+ A Family Christian Giveaway}

**Product received for review.

When it comes to teaching children, I've always been on the opinion that you have to make it appealing to them. Math in and of itself can be boring, you have to make it exciting...come at it from something they like. When my son was younger, we saw this firsthand with his love of trains. It was through them that he learned his colors, his numbers and even to read! Now that he's gotten a little older, he still loves his trains, but his tastes have evolved a bit as well.

Like many boys his age, he's all about the comic books. And it's not just boys HIS age either. Even my husband at 31 years old is all about the comics and graphic novels! To be honest though, my husband is not usually much of a Bible reader. He'll read books on the History of the Bible and religion. He'll watch shows on the same subject. But actually sitting down and reading the Bible? He's not likely to do it. So I was a bit surprised a few years ago when we came across The Action Bible series and he insisted on buying the first...and reading it too!


But The Action Bible series was not like any other Bible stories we'd ever seen...it was the story of the Bible...written as a graphic novel! And let's be honest, it WORKS. The Bible really isn't a cutesy little story that is sometimes seen in children's Bible storybooks. It's filled with action and adventure and acts of heroism...everything a good graphic novel should have!

So of course when my comic book loving 7 year old became obsessed with Bibles and Bible stories, he took over his Daddy's Action Bible. He was thrilled when I was given the opportunity as a Family Christian blogger to review a copy of The Action Bible: The Battle Begins- one of his favorite Bible stories-the story of creation. His response? "Awesome!"



A simple word but it about sums it up. It truly is the coolest way to 'read the Bible'. Now my son already likes Bible stories but that's not true for every child. Not only are the Action Bible books perfect for the comic book fans who love Bibles, but also for those who like my husband might not typically be drawn to read it. It makes it interesting and new and most importantly gets kids of all ages excited about the Bible. At the end of the day, isn't that what we should be striving for? For my son, I particularly liked this particular book in the series because not only was it again a favorite story, but in its smaller selection was much more manageable for his small hands, compared to the original his daddy had!

If you're looking for a way to get your little guy (or girl!) excited about the Lord, this truly is a great place to start...from the beginning! The Story of Creation and other Action Bible selections can be found at Family Christian! See more and connect at the links below:
