Growing up, Rick Osborne really liked Superman. Superman did what was right, he did cool things that other people couldn’t do, and he never quit. The Bible is full of great Superman-type stories where God helps good guys battle evil guys with his awesome supernatural help. By telling these stories, Rick loves to help boys see the real-life superhero that God wants each of them to be. Rick lives with his family up north in Canada, closer to where Superman built his fortress.

Format: Paperback
Part of Zonderkids exciting new 252 series, this book approaches Bible knowledge in a way that will appeal to boys between the ages of 7 and 13. Filled with action and interesting pictures, the book profiles the wars, battles and weapons which fill the pages of the Bible. Special consideration is given to a unique battle - the battle between good and evil.

Our children's reviewer at CatholicMom.com kids reviews gave this book a ranking of four stars, stating "Hot Pursuit. Battle Cries. Secret Plans. The Thunder of Chariots. What could be more exciting to a boy? In this book, boys can find out about all the adventure in the Bible. If your chld thinks that the Bible is just a boring book of people wanting to be holy, this will prove them wrong. Action packed illustrations and maps along with easy-to-read stories show children battles like the Siege of Jericho and the Battle of Ai. Also, this book covers a different kind of war: the fight between God and the devil whenever you have to make a hard decision. This book encourages you to "Get Smarter, Stronger, Deeper, and Cooler" in your faith. In short: buy this book for your action-craving child."

I bought this because I like the idea of books about the Bible that appeal to boys instead of Christianity always being about the soft, gentle side of things. I read one page of it to my son and got rid of it. The whole demeanor of it is just trying too hard to be cool and conversational, at the expense of something real and interesting and meaningful. It's not that I have a problem with people doing something fun with books about the Bible (check out Hey! That's Not What the Bible Says! and Mike Thaler's excellent series), there just isn't much substance here.

Format: Paperback
This short and heavily illustrated book is part of a series called 2:52 Soul Gear, published by the children’s group within Zondervan, part of the Thomas Nelson publishing group. This particular book seeks to talk about a subject that many boys, and more than a few men, and at least a few girls and women, find to be of great personal interest, and that is military history. As might be expected, though, this book talks about military history with a twist, using the Bible as a source for insights on physical (and more importantly spiritual) warfare, written in a way that encourages its young readers to look to the biblical text if they are curious about details and also providing a summarized account of biblical military history in a chronological fashion that presents the subject as a major and interesting aspect of the Bible, something that young men might not automatically know.

In terms of its contents, the book is not an exhaustive look at the battles or weapons of the Bible by any means, although it is at least a somewhat representative sample, starting in Genesis 14 with the warfare in which Abraham armed his own servants to rescue his kidnapped nephew Lot [1], moving on to the warfare of Israel against Amalek [2] and also against Sihon and Og, the cities of Jericho and Ai, the treaty with Gibeon and its aftermath [3], Gibeon’s struggle against the Midianites, the fall of Shiloh and the temporary loss of the Ark of the Covenant [4], the death of Ahab in battle against Syria, the siege of Samaria by Syria, the fall of Israel to Assyria, the siege of Jerusalem by the Assyrians, the fall of Jerusalem to the Babylonians, and a couple of chapters on spiritual warfare and Armageddon, which is a bit of misnomer.

I own the whole series and use some as study referral for lessons. I did use this one for a study. We give them out as rewards for memory work. Our associate pastor looked over them to approve as scriptural.

My nephew (almost 8 years old) loves this book! I gave this and Weird & Gross Bible Stuff to him for Christmas. He read both quickly and thoroughly enjoyed them. He is using his own money to purchase more books in this series.

The format is great. Features include:

- short chapters with kid-friendly language and enthusiasm
- comic-book-like illustrations with bold lines
- illustrated storyboards
- maps of Biblical battles
- details of weapons used
- key characters highlighted in detail
- relevant links to boys' lives today
- Bible references so readers can cross-reference this information with Scripture

Most importantly, the information is accurate and interactive. The authors offer applications with several of the stories encouraging readers to internalize the lessons of these Biblical truths.

Highly recommended.

This series of books is fantastic. I was hesitant to get them at first, because I had read some reviews that the books were not "serious" enough about religion. I strongly disagree!! We read these books at night before bed, and my eight year old son loves them! I am not kidding when I say he actually begs for another chapter. I personally find them very interesting and informative. I feel that they are written in a style that attracts children and holds their attention. We have gone so far as to get the 2:52 Bible- my son looks forward to reading the notes and things that explain what we have read. As for this book in particular- there is something about "wars and weapons" that boys like to hear about- and this one does that and more.
