Reviews - What do customers think about Manga Bible Story - Japanese: Comic Book Style Bible (Japanese Edition)?
Great product Aug 14, 2008
We gave this to our foreign exchange student during her visit. It was well received... Let's pray now that she reads it! Of course I cannot validate the translation itself, because it is in Japanese - but I saw her flipping through the pages very quickly, and with great intent.
Love it for our 8 year old! Oct 19, 2007
We have the version that starts at the birth of Jesus and finishes with rising from the dead. Our 8 year old loves it and reads it with relish. Being Catholic, reading the bible the way that other Christian religions do (daily) is not so common.....at least in my experience and I went to Catholic school. This is a great way to get kids excited about the stories.
nice illustrations: overall good quality Mar 23, 2007
Im a beginner Nihongo student (3 months) and knew this was going to be above my reading level (I only know 250 kanji) but got it any way to motivate myself. There's furigana next to some kanji --- so it's a fun way to build vocabulary.
Never met a Japanese young person who would not read this. Feb 25, 2006
I am glad to see this on this site in the US. It has been a good seller in Japan. Manga is the literature of choice for millions in Japan, from children to adults. I think I heard that half of all the books sold in Japan are in the distinctive comic book style called "manga." This book is 800 pages of black and white comic book style stories from the Bible from Genesis through the letters of St. Paul. I have never met a Japanese young person who would not read this, from children to youth to young adults. It is a great way to introduce a young person to the Bible. I always recommend it for the host parents of Japanese exchange students as a good gift to the student.
