About the Author
Sergio Cariello was born in Brazil in 1964 and started drawing as soon as could hold a pencil. At the age of five, he already knew that he wanted to be a cartoonist. And so did everyone else--he drew on church bulletins, napkins, and every surface wtihin his reach. He currently resides in Holiday, Florida.
Sergio has worked for Marvel Comics and DC Comics. He attended the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art as well as the Word of Life Bible Institute in upstate New York.
In February, 2006, he was contacted by David C. Cook to gauge his interest in a new project; completely re-illustrating Cook's classic Picture Bible. What David C. Cook couldn't know is that Sergio had grown up in Brazil with a Portuguese translation of that very same Picture Bible. He was reading the Picture Bible before he learned to ride a bike! Even though he knew as a kid that he wanted to be a comic artist, he never would have dreamed that he would one day get to work on the Picture Bible itself!

So, just remember, this isn't just for kids but all people... from young to old. I guarantee you won't regret it.
📍 Are there enough stories? Incredible number of stories (over 200)--this thing is THICK and solid. I'm surprised this isn't a $50-70 book.
📍 Message content: Is it accurate? I liken this Bible to "The Message," in that it's a paraphrase. Really I am ashamed there are some who claim this Bible "isn't detailed" enough or doesn't represent the Bible... that's because it's not the Bible. Similar to the Sistine Chapel, it explains Biblical truths in an engaging, dramatic, and artistic way that is relevant to our culture's art-form (i.e. graphic novels). In the same way it would be unfair to see the Sistine Chapel and complain how Michelangelo painted Cane and Able in the nude. It's an artistic interpretation. But yes, it can and will definitely get people closer to God, in the same way our great Christian artists move and inspire people towards God using their artistic talents. That said, it's not a replacement for the Bible. But an awesome tool nonetheless. Get it!
📍 Are the illustrations to graphic? No, they're tastefully done. Actually considering the Bible's rather violent history, there should be a lot more blood. But there's not. I'd rate this PG depending on the maturity of your child and his/her understanding of Biblical text.
📍 Who's this for? I'm 29 years old (Theology Major too), and I love it. Perfect for teenagers or kids you're looking to get hooked on Biblical studies. Buy several and give them away as gifts!
📍 Bottom line: would I recommend this product to one of my friends?
👍 Yes, absolutely.
I don't agree with the 1 star comments on this book! First, it does state an age range for this book clearly on Amazon's page. 2nd, if an adult can't understand or doesn't like the pictures, then don't let your kid read it. If your kid is not mature enough to understand that these pictures don't necessarily depict the life of our Savior, then don't let them read it. But I'm sure the point of the Action Bible is to get kids interested in God and the Bible. However not all kids can read a Bible and understand it. I myself growing up was highly confused reading a Bible that was not meant for children to read. No one states that this is a replacement of the actual Bible, however it is a good start for children. It gets them interested, and curious. My daughter has almost completed the entire book and has already asked for the New Testament. We talk to our children and ask them what they have read, to make sure they understand it completely and fill in any blanks that was left out of the book.
Very nice way to teach kid read the bible in a story way. 9 years old in a fourth grade had been reading it on daily basis. He's on page 200 after 2 weeks of reading every night. I truly like this book, I told other Sunday school parents to the this book for their children. Very recommended!
