Reviews - What do customers think about The Comic Book Bible: Comic Book Bible?
Light and simple.. Dec 16, 2008
Nice, basic book. Good for parents to read to their non-readers, and also good for early readers to read to themselves. Good starter Bible. If your kids are a tad older and can read well, I recommend the Picture Bible. It is an awesome, comprehensive product. It manages to show and tell all of the stories truthfully without being gruesome. We decided on the Picture Bible for our 6-9-yr-olds. It offers a whole lot more for not much more money on this site. If we had a 3-5-yr-old, though, this Comic Book Bible would be fun to read to them.
Buy this book! Dec 12, 2008
I bought two copies of this for my daughters. My 11 year old didn't want to put it down! She has already read it cover to cover! My 9 year old has read some of it, but hasn't shown as much interest. She still prefers her story Bible. It may not be a true "Bible", but it's a step above story Bibles in that it contains actual scripture. The way I look at it, they are getting some of God's actual words while learning the general background on other topics. If it spurs their interest, then great! God's word will not return void--you'll always get something out of it!
This was used by someone else. Jul 27, 2008
Someone else is using this product and that person has not informed me of their opinon of it.
picture prejudice? Mar 22, 2007
Just based on looking at the sample pages provided by the this site website, I noticed that the "good guys" all have lighter hair and sometimes lighter skin, the "bad guys" have dark hair, and incidental characters have dark hair or darker skin. This is a very unfortunate subliminal message of color prejudice for children.
Very understandable... Apr 27, 2004
The only thing I didn't like about this Bible was that it use scriptural references quite as much as I would like. I like the way that God's words are drawn so that you can tell that a character isn't talking.
Great tool to get younger readers rooted in the Word of God!
