BibleForce: The First Heroes Bible {Comic Book Style Bible Review}

Pin It


Sitting down with my son to read the Bible is something we do on a regular basis. Sometimes we just focus on a specific area in the Bible or a major story. Other times we just read right through up to a certain point. The most important thing is that my son is getting in his daily dose of Bible studying.

There are plenty of fantastic children's Bible's and storybooks out there to help create a solid Bible study routine with your child. Just recently, we were blessed with a one of a kind Bible that offers quite the unique study experience. This isn't a traditional Bible in the sense, but one that will definitely bring about a whole new way to read the Bible, especially if you have children who enjoy cool artwork or comic books! BibleForce: The First Heroes Bible takes many of the major stories and components of a traditional Bible and transforms them into child-friendly comic book versions.




ABOUT THE BOOK:
Dive into the action and adventure of the Bible! BibleForce will help you and your children discover the message of the Bible and the heroes within its pages. The focus on Bible heroes makes the stories even more thrilling. This beautifully illustrated Bible is retold in a visually enticing, fast-paced narrative that is sure to capture your attention. BibleForce follows the events of the Bible in chronological order and shares nearly 200 stories of Scripture in a simple, straightforward retelling.





BibleForce is a great way to get children excited about reading the Bible! It's especially nice for young readers, since they don't have to read through long segments of text as they would in a traditional Bible. This book is basically designed just like a comic book with segmented artwork and text to match. The only difference is that this is a large hardcover book that not only offers one story, but almost 200 Bible stories.

There's just the perfect amount of flow with reading each story in this book. While every detail of the Bible is not always included, there is still enough for children to really grasp the message being conveyed or the major events that occurred. While I wouldn't necessarily rely on this book as a replacement for a real Bible, this is still a fantastic option to bring some of the more popular stories to life for kids. I also like how the table of contents highlights scripture verses with each story for easy reference. In essence, we can use this as a Bible storybook to complement our traditional Bible passage readings.




In addition to the traditional Bible stories portrayed in good old comic book style, I also appreciate some of the extra features that are included.  In the beginning of the book there is a handy section that offers kids an introduction to the Bible, including the books of the Old and New Testaments. There is also an informative breakdown of the Old Testament books into their four groupings, The Law, History, Poetry, and The Prophets, as well as a breakdown of the New Testament Books into their groupings, Gospels, History, Letters, and Prophecy. Also included in the book are helpful timelines, maps, and plenty of profiles of individuals who are deemed heroes throughout Biblical history.




The overall design of the book is pretty awesome! Let's start with the most notable feature, the illustrations. These are full of details and colors that help bring the Bible to life for children. Every segment includes action and adventure that really help pull you into each story. The book, itself, has a durable hard cover and is rather thick with 642 pages. There is a red ribbon book mark sewn into the spine in order to help kids keep their place while reading.







I have nothing, but positive things to say about BibleForce. This book has went above and beyond my expectations. My son enjoys when we sit together and read through the stories. He really stays attentive to what we're reading and often makes comments about the artwork throughout. This book is not only perfect for young comic book fans, but is a wonderful option that presents children with a fun and exciting way to learn about the Bible and the stories throughout.

I saw this and wondered how it would be. The pictures are stunning! It does look like a fun way for kids to enjoy the Bible stories. I know my son used to love reading comic books, so this would've been something he really enjoyed.

Oh it's fantastic!! When I first saw it being advertised, I figured it would be something we'd like, but it's even better than I thought.
