Reviews - What do customers think about Bible Heroes & Bad Guys?
Great for reluctant readers--especially elementary school boys Dec 14, 2005
My reluctant reader has this about memorized!! We're buying another from the series soon. Not the greatest in parent's opinion but currently son is saving it for "his own son"!!
Exciting Stuff! Jun 17, 2004
Despite a few mistakes as the previous reviewer mentioned, this book is absolutely amazing. My nine-year-old son has turned this book into a well-read, crinkled, well-loved book that he constantly reads and re-reads. Because of the addition of the verses inside, he's also turned to his Bible to continue reading more about each Hero or Bad Guy and to see what God has to say about these people. The language the authors use has enabled my son to relate to the book, to understand it, and to enjoy reading. I would recommend this to anyone (and already have!) who have boys (or even girls) who want a "cool" read while learning just how exciting the Bible really is!
Bible Heroes & Bad Guys Jun 5, 2004
Apparently this book was not proofread before going to press. I have found many mistakes and typos. One example, is on page 21 under "Bible Supercharge": the Bible reference is "Proverbs 37:3". When I wrote to the publisher about it and other mistakes, I received no response.
Another rather annoying aspect is the language used. I realize that the authors are trying to be "hip" so as to communicate on a child's level, but I found I had to stop continuously and explain to my son "what that means". We just don't talk that way, and my kids have never heard of many of the phrases used.
This book started with a good idea, but it could have been so much better. The most disappointing aspect was the apparent sloppiness and uncaring attitude of the publisher.
