Format: Hardcover
I am sure this is a lovely book in print; however, DO NOT GET IT ON KINDLE. The Kindle edition is more than frustrating. First, pages are turned on their side. Second, illustrations and content are cut off making the book virtually impossible to read, understand and, therefore, review. I truly wish my review could be more complete but due to the poor quality of the Kindle version I was unable to properly read the book and therefore cannot properly review it.

Format: Hardcover
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 Handbook is a wonderfully illustrated companion to not only The Action Bible, but for any Bible. It gives detailed information on many names, places and terms that are found throughout the Bible. I liked how organized the information was. It also gave you the page number of where you could find the name, place or term in The Action Bible or scripture from The Bible. I found this to be extremely helpful.

This book was very well written and full of so much information that I did not know previously. I like how they added appropriate illustrations in just the right places to help keep your attention. The information was written plainly so that even a young child could understand it.

I recommend this book for anyone who is studying the Bible or who wants to learn more about the Bible. It is definitely a wonderful resource that every home should have a copy of.

Format: Hardcover
I received the book for free as a Kindle version from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Unfortunately, the formatting was so poor that it made browsing through it an exercise in frustration. Images cut in half, facing the wrong direction, etc.

Now, it is possible that it was a pre-release version; but one would think they'd want their best foot forward in exchange for an accurate and favorable review.

I still cannot say whether the written content itself was any good.

UPDATE: 09-11-2013
The publisher, David C. Cook, informed me that the Kindle version didn't work and the project was abandoned. They were kind enough to send me an actual book and it looks really good. Can't wait until my toddler is old enough to enjoy the brief but well-written definitions. The references linking articles to The Action Bible pages to expand on whatever subject is under study.
I have updated my rating accordingly.

Format: Hardcover
Sergio Cariello in his new book, "The Action Bible Handbook" published by David C. Cook gives us A Dictionary of People, Places, and Things.

From the back cover: Enhance your Spiritual adventures

What is a covenant? What animals are mentioned in the Bible? Who was Gideon? What kinds of jobs did Bible characters have?

Are you ready for some answers to the questions?

With vivid illustrations and kid-friendly explanations, The Action Bible Handbook gives you deeper insight into both familiar and challenging Bible words and names. Over 700 "whos", "wheres", and "whats" make it interesting and understandable. Learn about topics like:
· Animals and Insects
· Languages and Phrases
· Plants and Trees
· Places to Go
· Popular People
· Unnatural Disasters
· Weapons and Armor
And much more!

A complete index is included so you can find just the topic you're looking for. And with the handy page number references, you'll find this is the perfect companion to The Action Bible.

A Bible Dictionary that is illustrated by Sergio Cariello! Outstanding. This Bible Dictionary is filled with information about Bible-time people, places and customs that not only is easy to read but is also fun to read and hard to put down. Even if you have used a Bible Dictionary before you are going to like this one because, I believe, it has new information that other Bible Dictionaries do not have. To make this book as helpful as possible there is the page number in "The Action Bible" where you can find the defined term. If you are using any other version of The Bible then Bible verse references are provided where you can find the person, place or thing.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
H is a very active 8-year old girl and is constantly moving - we call her The PM Machine. When she saw the Action Bible, she sat down and read it for hours, only stopping to ask question. We also gave her the Action Bible Handbook which is a companion for to and functions like an encyclopedia of names, places, etc., that occur in the Action Bible. We explained how the two worked together and that was all she needed. We definitely feel both should be gifted together. We also purchased the Action Bible Devotional but decided we would gift that later after she has consumed her new Bible. We highly recommend every Christian and even non-Christian purchase these book for their children and grandchildren. In fact, if you have never read a Bible and would learn about the Old and New Testament, these books are easy reads for children of all ages - from 7 to 107.
