About the Author

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.

I am a Children's lay pastor. I spent hours looking for Bibles for kids in the 8-16 year-old range. I had my 9-year-old son helping me, and we looked at all sorts of "kid-friendly" Bibles. I wanted something with the complete, undiluted Truth, but with some extras that draw kids into the Bible. My son eagerly wanted to take this Bible to school with him.

This bible grabs the attention of boys. Like the 2:52 books that have recently been published that include "Bible Weapons and Wars", "Bible Heroes & Bad Guys", and many others; this Bible draws boys to the things they're interested in and makes them want to read the Bible to find out more.

Unlike another reviewer that said it's awful to have the "grossology" next to the Word of God, I find that the extra content draws chldren in and helps them make sense of what happened several centuries before. I don't see it as belittling God's Word, but rather encouraging kids to get more out of it.

My son was never interested in reading the Bible until this book. He started reading the "Gross" sections first. He was so interested in the statements, he continued to read the passages surrounding the topic. This is a must for any young man to read.

This Bible is THAT good. Both my 8 yr old and my 11 yr old love their copies, and they're spending more time "browsing around" because it's interesting and well laid-out.

My twin boys received this Bible for their 7th birthdays. They got out of bed the morning after their party and asked if they could go read their Bibles (the first Bibles they have owned). They stopped playing games several times during the day to sit down and read the Bible. They have talked about Noah being 600 years old, and God creating the earth and then man to take care of it, and have said they haven't read about Jesus yet but they are sure they will get to Him soon. I am SOOO impressed by this interest they are showing. They want to read it all the way through by their 8th birthday.

What I have read in the extra sidebars, INCLUDING the "grossology" stuff,
is TREMENDOUS analogies, explanations, and verbal/visual aids to help people (notice I said people, not boys) learn more about the Bible stories and their life applications.

Hmmm...isn't learning the life applications of the Bible the MAIN REASON we buy Bibles in the first place?

AWESOME, SWEET, or any other word you use to mean "FIVE STARS". I can't say it enough, and hopefully it will be one stepping stone to eternal life for my boys and yours!

The first time my son took this Bible to his Awana group meeting, he said that his friends wanted to know where I got it because they were going to ask for one! It was a huge hit with my son and it's gotten him reading his bible regularly. The Gross factor is pretty cool and I often catch my son and husband comparing some of the gross-ities. There are so many great features in this bible, like the blurbs about the way real life was in biblical times and and it's tailor made for the way boys see the world. It really does help them to understand God's word and how even a 10 year old boy has a place in God's plan. I say if you are looking for a Bible that your 9-12 year old will actually use, GET THIS BIBLE! To quote my son "It rocks out loud YO!"

My son received this Bible when he was 8. He loves it. He especially enjoys all the extras that are included and will often turn to those and then read the Scriptures that go along with it. The "grossology" parts do not diminish from God's word at all. Rather, it allows the child to understand things at their level.

My son (8 Yrs.) loves his Bible. It has "cool" gross facts and neat stuff that boys really enjoy. He takes it with him all the time. This is something that is new to him. He loves to look through and find the cool side notes. That encourages him to read further. He even challenges adults on the neat facts. I would recommend it to anyone buying for a school age boy. It really encourages them to get into the Bible.
