Book Review: The Action Bible Study Bible ESV

When I picked up The Action Bible Study Bible ESV in a store, I judged by its cover and was disappointed with the lack of amount of comic art. I love the introduction pages. In each introduction, the "Faith in Action" section makes small art mural of the key words found in the book. I was expecting the whole Bible to have the format of the introductory pages. But as I looked through the Bible I found other things that I liked. This Bible would be great for highlighting and jotting notes. The "What about this?" section asks questions about the faith that most people ask. The "Unlock It" sections which ask important questions to help understand the passage. The "Guess It!" sections is a challenging guessing game with 5 clues. The "Ancient Archives" sections add history to give a quick glimpse of what it was like in ancient times.  The "Activate" sections give small devotions. The "Remember It" sections highlight important verses to memorize. This Bible also has maps, sketches, a dictionary and a concordance. Although all these sections are good, I thought that there would be more of them. At first glance, I thought the whole book would be in comic format. But as it is, it is a great study Bible for any comic lover child or adult. I would buy this book for my children and I recommend anyone into comics to purchase this book.
