Book Description

17 Sep 2004
The Bible is a unique narrative of origins and cosmic powers; of the ageless battle between good and evil; of human potential and human treachery - the very stuff that graphic novels are made of.

Diamond Comics 'Superbly illustrated and comprehensive in its scope. A must for every school library.' Times Educational Supplement 'Simply brilliant. A potent introduction for those who might find the Bible too daunting a read.' Youthwork

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic, colour , graphic novel style bible 18 April 2010
By light VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic book - the entire bible in a graphic novel format! We are not religious but my daughter was interested in the bible stories. I tried a few normal kids bibles but they weren't successful. I then found this on an amazon search - this book is amazing - each part of the bible is beautifully illustrated in full colour in the style of a marvel magazine or graphic book. The text is succinct and subtle. The pages are fairly thin - a lot of pages are packed in as the narrative covers the entire bible. I buy a lot of managa and graphic novels for my children, they are usually very expensive for a smallish book, but this is about triple the volume of those and about half the price. It really looks like a labour of love on the part of the authors/illustrators. My daughter often has a read of this - great for reluctant readers too and of course the bible promotes lots of discussion.

The illustrations are in a very realistic style (see the front cover), they are not cartoonish or disrepectful. This is not a text for infant school children but for older primary and secondary pupils. It must be a wonderful aid for RS teachers and church schools everywhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Engaging 27 Dec 2010
Format:Paperback
This comic book style of the Bible is really excellent. The pictures really bring to life the stories, good for children and adults although maybe best targeted at 6-12 yr olds. This is the third time I've purchased this, two of these were as baptism gifts. The pictures are colourful enough to entertain toddlers at story time, then when they are older they can read it themselves. Also provides a good overview of the Bible's major stories from start to finish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gods word in pictures 13 July 2010
By pam
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Children love the 'comic' style of this Bible and will happily sit down to read it for fun. Good for all children over 8yrs even those who have educational difficulties. The drawings could be descibed as 'fierce' so not recommended for little children. It might give them bad dreams!!

I felt that the cartoons were a little cramped together, certainly compared to the Action Bible, and the index was too compact to give such a clear overview of what the Bible is about, but otherwise it is a good read for anyone, of any age, who finds close print overwhelming.

4.0 out of 5 stars Graphic Bible 17 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent illustrations. I had a quick skim through it before giving it to my 11 year grandson and my only criticism is that some parts could have been written in more simple language.

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid if uninspired interpretation.
If you know the Lion Children's Bible, then this is thankfully a more sensible and carefully-worded full-colour 250-page comic-strip version. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars The Lion Graphic Bible
Beautifully done. The children could not put it down.

Good for those who find it hard to keep up with Sunday School lessons. They find it facinating!

4.0 out of 5 stars If your child won't read, buy them this.
This was for a gift, but I have years ago bought it for my teenage children. Personally I think it is awful, but it appeals to teenagers, who love the imagery, and the manga style. Read more
