The Lion Comic Hero Bible

Artists, Siku and Jeff Anderson add their take on the Bible by recreating some of the action stories in comic format. Bold and arresting, this Comic Book Hero Bible will be good for young boys or kids obsessed with comics. It would also be a good way to involve kids that may struggle with reading. Specially edited and formatted, this Bible contains stories from both the New and the Old Testaments and really brings to life the epic struggles and adventures. Included in the back are Bible references so anyone that finds themselves particularly enamored with a section or story can find out where to locate it in the Bible. As an adult librarian I definitely see the value of having the Bible in a different format. The only thing I didn't really care for was that they renamed some of the characters to give them a more "hero" theme. Abraham is renamed "Faithman" and Satan is dubbed "The Accuser." Beyond that I find this book enjoyable and I'm certain many kids and teens will to. 

I received this book for free from Kregel Blog Tours in return for my honest, unbiased review.
