I got 800 page book from my local church. I read inside information about book. The Picture Bible makes a good first Bible for young readers, though this classic best-seller is loved by people of all ages. The full text version contains 233 Bible stories in full-color comic format that makes Bible stories exciting for kids. Newly revised, the new information pages, maps, and the improved index give this classic Bible storybook fresh significance for today!
The book is really interesting and easy to read. I enjoyed reading Old and New Testament stories with comic book like art to go with selected stories. I also liked that there were “Did You Know” sections to help explain stories.
This book is also great for young and old readers. The artist Andre Le Blanc did excellent job translating Bible stories into images. His art reminded me of Hal Forester and Prince Valiant stories. I was amazed at time of 1998 publication there were over 3 million copies of The Picture Bible in Publication. What I liked most is that book it brought Bible into easy reading rather than very complex stories in regular Bible. I was a very rewarding read for me. I read first 100 pages right after church on Sunday. This was not required reading. I found book in my St. Joseph Church library. It was a pleasant surprise to see Bible done in art format. The Picture Bible is religious themed.
