Make family Bible time easy

Here’s an illustrated Bible we’ve been using lately with our kids: The Action Bible. It’s basically the Bible illustrated in the style of superhero comics. If you’ve got kids of primary school age or early high school I’d recommend it. Here’s why:

Firstly, the illustrations are bright, vivid and captivating. You won’t have trouble holding your kids attention (within reason).

Secondly, the text is reliable. It’s very close to the actual Bible and the occasional additions are consistent with the passage. Sometimes the author even helpfully brings in content from elsewhere in the Bible. For example, the story of Abraham offering up Isaac includes insights from Hebrews 11:17-19 about how he thought God would raise Isaac from the dead.

Thirdly, this Bible goes into interesting territory you might not come across in kids Bibles (or even your own reading). For example, Job, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Hebrews all get covered to some extent. I can see how it would lead curious kids and adults into reading more in their regular Bibles.

So I’d recommend giving it a go with your kids. Just read a story together each night and ask them what they noticed. Bring some action into your family Bible time.
