'The Action Bible Study Bible ESV' combines the great Action Bible art by Sergio Cariello with a pretty decent study Bible for younger readers.
This includes the entire text of the ESV Bible. Each of the 66 books includes an introduction. Within the text are study boxes including verses to memorize, ancient and interesting items from the Bible (like the ark of the covenant, or the Shema), sections that ask and answer tough questions that come up during the reading. There are devotional sections and illustrations by Sergio Cariello. There are marks in the margins showing what sections have been illustrated in the Action Bible. Also included are 40 full-color pages in 4 page sections with kind of an abbreviated look at the Action Bible.
The study content is solid. The addition of the Action Bible illustrated pages is good. The entire story of the Bible is told in those pages, but abbreviated. It feels a bit abbreviated, but the illustration work by Sergio Cariello is solid. I really liked the Bible book intros. They include an overview, some key people to look for, and a cool key word collage. It's a pretty great package, and I'd recommend it for a younger reader needing a study Bible.
I received a review copy of this ebook from David C. Cook and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
