Action Bible - God's Redemptive Story
Teens and pre-teens today are inundated with action heroes that are dramatically illustrated and larger than life, so much so, that at times it may seem difficult to engage them in the stories found in the Bible. As parents, we want our children to be excited and eager to dive into the action heroes-the original and real-action heroes found in the Bible. Let's be honest, how many of our young people think of God as an Action Hero? Our young people become enthralled when Superman blows a car over with his breath, yet when you stop to consider God created the whole universe with his breath, who is the real Super Hero? Written to communicate Biblical Truth clearly and forcefully, the Action Bible contains over 200 fast-paced narratives in chronological order, making it easy to follow the historical flow of the Bible. Old Testament covers creation, fathers of the faith, the life of Joseph, Moses, Joshua, God's Judges, the Kings, the Prophets, and the Exiles, covering Genesis 1 through Malachi and including a brief look at the four hundred years between the OT and NT. The New Testament encompasses the birth and ministry of Jesus, Jesus' Final Days, the birth of the Church, the life of Paul and the final days of Revelation. Graphically illustrated. HC. 832 pgs. ~ Deanne
