Every kid loves comics. The authors of The Action Bible: God's Redemptive Story know that, and have produced a high-quality comic-style story Bible for kids that covers all the major plot points in the Old and New Testaments in a seamless narrative. At the beginning of each story, the Scripture reference for the material is included.

This is best for 8-12 year olds. They can read the text on their own, and the colorful and action-oriented pictures will engage and intrigue them. The idea is that kids familiarize themselves with the content of the Bible before delving into it unaided; the only real issue we've seen with this particular text is its tendency to shorten some stories unnecessarily.

As far as comic book Bibles, this is one of the better options. The narrative is fast-moving and the illustrations quite attractive (which can be a problem if kids start associating the images with the reality). The Action Bible is broadly evangelical in attitude and presentation, making this a good jumping-off place for deeper conversations with your growing kids.
