The Perfect Bible for Boys...of ALL Ages! {An Action Bible Study Bible Review & Family Christian Giveaway}



Ah, the Bible...the ultimate epic adventure story. The action, the adventure, the heroism. It's truly something right out of our favorite comic books, isn't it? So, of course it only makes sense to create an action packed graphic novel series based on the stories of the Bible! That's just what the brilliant minds behind The Action Bible have done!

In the past few years since its debut, The Action Bible books have helped to bring the stories of the Bible to a whole new audience. They've captured the attention of young boys (and girls) everywhere who might not have otherwise thought to pick up a Bible and came at them through something they loved. And it's not just the young either...comic book fans of all ages have found themselves drawn in...including my 'big kid'- my 31 year old husband. Both of my boys have been huge fans of the series as you can read all about here in my review of The Battle Begins.

Yes, The Action Bible has certainly proven to be a great way to get kids interested in the stories of the Bible...but at the end of the day it still has its limits. It's still merely a Bible storybook and no replacement for a REAL Bible...but wouldn't it be great if it was? A legit Bible that still offers the fun and excitement of The Action Bible...but with full bible content- from Genesis to Revelations and everything in between?

Great news! Now there is!!! The Action Bible released their very own ESV Study Bible!! Take a look:

Within these pages … you’ll read the most amazing true stories and see God’s Word come to life in incredible detail with dramatic illustrations from comic book artist, Sergio Cariello. You’ll explore ancient worlds in new and exciting ways and meet fascinating kings and queens, heroic warriors, faithful prophets, and daring revolutionaries. And, within your life, you will see God in action!

Features:

"What About This?" Section: Gain insights to tough questions about faith
"Unlock It!" Section: Who did what, when, and where … and why it matters
"Guess It!" Section: Person, place, or thing—take the challenge with 5 clues
"Activate" Section: Reflect on Bible themes and how they apply now
"Ancient Archives" Section: Discover the cultural history of ancient times – what were weapons, food, clothes, houses, celebrations and traditions like?
"Experience the Drama" Section: Comic book artist Sergio Cariello’s dramatic illustrations captures the imagination and transports you to another time

Plus book introductions, maps, a dictionary, and more!


I just love a good study Bible...one that helps to make the oftentimes complicated to understand Bible a little more relevant to our daily lives! A bible that answers the questions of 'What does this mean to me!?' With it's fun sections throughout like 'What About This?, 'Activate' and 'Unlock It', The Action Bible certainly fits the bill! The ESV translation also helps to make the words more understandable as well. But of course the best part is the artwork. There are colored illustrations spread throughout and between books that truly give that same fun feel that we came to love in the original Action Bible, as well as some great black and white illustrations among the pages of the Bible itself! Awesome!




This truly is an ideal Bible for the boy (or girl) who loves The Action Bible but is looking to make the transition into a real Bible. It's perfect for the kid who already reads the Bible and is a fan of comic books. It's ideal for the grown-up child who still loves comics and wants to stay young at heart. Simply put, from 7-31, it's the ideal Bible for all!



The Action Bible is available in hardcover as I received, as well as leather bound for a more sophisticated look! And from now until March 12, you can save 30% at Family Christian! What a deal! This makes the perfect gift for Easter, birthdays, baptisms, or just because! You can find the ESV Action Bible and more great Action Bible products at Family Christian.
