Power Bible

It can be tough to find a Bible or Bible storybook for a reluctant reader. But comic books are often something reluctant readers love - and that's why Green Egg Media created the Power Bible series. This 10 book series covers the entire Bible in comic book format with illustrations by Shin-joong Kim. Today, I'll be reviewing volume 1 in this series.

The book begins with an introduction to the people kids will learn about later in the book. There is a full color image of the person, and a few sentences about him or her. Then the book plunges straight into the story of creation. Every page is full color, comic book style with anime characters. When the book switches to a new Bible story, it offers a biblical reference, so parents or kids can consult and compare with the Bible. The book ends with the story of Old Testament Joseph, hinting at trouble to come in book 2 of the series.

What I Like: My children really enjoyed the comic book aspect of this book and were eager to start reading book 2 as soon as possible.I found book 1 in this series quite accurate - and that means it's a fantastic way to get kids who aren't interested in reading the Bible more knowledgeable about God's word.

What I Dislike: Nothing.

Overall Rating: Excellent.

Age Appeal: 8 and up
