Book blurb:

Here’s the most complete picture Bible ever! And it features a captivating, up-to-date artwork style—making it the perfect Bible for today’s visually focused culture.

The Action Bible presents 215 fast-paced narratives in chronological order, making it easier to follow the Bible’s historical flow—and reinforcing the build-up to its thrilling climax.

The stories in The Action Bible communicate clearly and forcefully to contemporary readers. This compelling blend of clear writing plus dramatic images offers an appeal that crosses all age boundaries.

Brazilian artist Sergio Cariello has created attention-holding illustrations marked by rich coloring, dramatic shading and lighting, bold and energetic designs, and emotionally charged figures.

Let this epic rendition draw you into all the excitement of the world’s most awesome story.

 I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley for the purpose of review. The review is my honest opinion and I was not paid for this service.   

The Action Bible
is an incredible graphic novel of the Holy Bible. The illustrations throughout this book are incredible and draw you into the story. The author and illustrator did an amazing job working together to render this incredible picturesque Bible. Not only was the book written well, but it was done in such a way that it grasps the readers' attention from page one and keeps it throughout the book. This is one of those books that you will not want to put down until you have read the very last page. Even then you will want to read it all over again. While this book was written in an effort to draw our young people to reading the word of God, I believe that this book will be readily enjoyed by even adults.

I recommend this book to everyone who wants to read an enjoyable and knowledge filled book. You will find yourself remembering some of the parts and comparing how you pictured in your mind with the illustrations in this book. You'll even find yourself picking up a King James version of the Bible to read more of the chapter the illustrated Bible was referencing to. This book makes a wonderful gift and will definitely get the most unwilling child to actually sit down and read.

I give this book 5 stars out of 5 stars.
