I normally like Children's Bibles. They take the action of the stories and tell it in a simple manner. In this version, I found the stories to be too truncated. I also felt some of the language was stilted. I realize that this is done in comic book format, yet it would have been better to include more panels and better explanations than to leave out so much of the stories.

While I feel the stories should have been expanded, it is still a decent representation. The illustrations are clear and appropriate. Overall, I found it to be an average piece of work.

Look through the reviews. Many of the 4- & 5-star reviews don't even mention the book itself. Too many reviews are obviously fake to bring the rating up. That's the main reason I gave this 1 star ... to balance out the fake reviews.

As for the book, itself, it is poorly written with a lot of grammar and spelling mistakes. Some of the stories are too abbreviated, leaving out important parts of the Bible story. Some of the story choices were not what I would consider best choices. For example, Jeremiah was just strange, ending with death, destruction, and slavery. David's story was about Goliath and David's adultery with Bathsheba and murder of Uriah, but none of his other successes or even why he was a "man after God's own heart". I liked Isaiah's story, even though his name was misspelled in the first frame of the story.

Overall, I've seen better Old Testament Bible stories for kids and I will be deleting this from my Kindle.

The stories here are fairly accurate considering the brevity of the text. The problem is that the grammar is often incorrect, words are missing, and words are misspelled. All this makes it difficult to read, especially for early readers. Also, the comic book aspect is deceiving. This book tells the stories fairly accurately, so the content can be rather adult. A parent should read this with their child.

I could not read those tiny words on my Kindle and I could not enlarge the pages.

The full page is only a quarter of my screen or less on my 10in tablet.

I have pretty good eye sight but I wont be reading this to my child or asking my child to read it. A complete waste.

I am sure it would be fine if I just bought a paper back book.

Well I only downloaded it to read what is was about. But to be frank my not even my 5 year old sister found this enjoyable . No offence it's just my opinion but this book needs to get a lot of upgrades to the 24th century before getting any good reviews.

I have to say that I was torn on the rating to give this book. I will openly say that the illustrations themselves were very well-drawn! Beautiful! Truthfully the comic pictures themselves at least made this a 3-star review. The two biggest problems I had were about the text and content. I did look at the first page or two when I purchased the book. I had hoped it would be something my kids would like. Unfortunately, once I downloaded the book I was very disappointed. The stories were breif and rather old to be a "children's book." I was hoping my 5 and 6 year olds would get to enjoy it. But I just don't think stories about killing (no matter how much they actually appear in the Bible) are appropriate for children. Teens and young adults, yes. Kids, no. To make matters worse, once the book is on the actual Kindle, you cannot read the text without squinting and straining. The text is in the pictures, so it doesn't matter how much you want to increase the font. It won't enlarge. As parents reading it to our kids or for kids reading it, it was too much strain to try to make out the words. Of course, I was somewhat glad of that after the stories. I, too, will be deleting this one from my collection. I give the author huge kudos on beautiful art! It really is beautiful, but I don't think it's for children (teens and YA, sure) and there needs to be an option to pull up the text separately for people like me with very poor eyesight. Of course that is just a problem with illustrated ebooks, not the author's fault. Still, it does make the book harder to read and enjoy. It was a brave choice to do a comic. I had so much hope it would be awesome! Especially after the awesome cover art and first few pages. But, in the end, I think the category is misleading and the book is hard to read on a traditional Kindle. Maybe print-on-demand might be a better book format.

I have the Kindle edition of this book. On my tablet if you double-tap the picture, it enlarges. The pictures are comic-book sized, so they would be harder to read if you do not do this. The cartoons are in color and are done well.

Because of the below errors in the book you could use the book for older children to use as a "find-the-errors-in-the-story lesson." Also note that it is written from a Christian standpoint. It covers the Old Testament using Jesus as fulfilling Isaiah's prophecy (in case you are Jewish).

I would not recommend this book to children under 12 as it has pictures of people who were killed (not graphic, but it does have blood on the swords with the people faced down), and the stories in this section of the Bible are graphic telling about David and Bathsheba and the doom of a city.

There are multiple spelling errors in the book: Goliath is spelled Goliat and Nathan is spelled Natan. "Natan" tells King David he will have another son named "Salomon" instead of Solomon. Solomon tells a guard to do something with a question mark instead of a period.

The story of Job shows Job's sons and daughters as young children whereas the story of Job in the Bible mentions that his children go to each other's houses for feasts. The story says "A storm blew his old son's house down" instead of his oldest son.

The book of Isaiah quotes the prophet Uzziah instead of Isaiah.

The book would be rated a five if the above changes were made and the comics were enlarged.
