The Action Bible introduced millions of people to the Bible with its unique storytelling and dramatic comic-book style illustrations. Now, preteens and up can go deeper with The NIV Action Bible, written by an extraordinary team of divinity scholars and teachers and illustrated by renowned artist Sergio Cariello.
Fans of the original Action Bible can take their reading one step further. Whereas the Action Bible was a vivid comic-book style story Bible, this full text study Bible brings the New International Version of the Bible to life with supplementary images and study notes that appeal to adolescents.
