About the Author
Sergio Cariello was born in Brazil in 1964 and started drawing as soon as could hold a pencil. At the age of five, he already knew that he wanted to be a cartoonist. And so did everyone else--he drew on church bulletins, napkins, and every surface wtihin his reach. He currently resides in Holiday, Florida.
Sergio has worked for Marvel Comics and DC Comics. He attended the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art as well as the Word of Life Bible Institute in upstate New York.
In February, 2006, he was contacted by David C. Cook to gauge his interest in a new project; completely re-illustrating Cook's classic "Picture Bible." What David C. Cook couldn't know is that Sergio had grown up in Brazil with a Portuguese translation of that very same "Picture Bible." He was reading the "Picture Bible" before he learned to ride a bike! Even though he knew as a kid that he wanted to be a comic artist, he never would have dreamed that he would one day get to work on the "Picture Bible" itself!"

by all reports, they love it.
the stories and the pictures seem to be lifted word-for-word from the old Picture Bible that I had when I was a kid, but the drawings are nicer.
When I saw this Bible, I knew that we needed a copy of it for our house. We are comic book fans and love to read comics every once in a while. Some might say that we are crazy to have so many comics in our house - from Batman to Superman including Astérix and Tintin (in French) we encourage our kids to read them.
This Action Bible will brings you and your kids to discover and visualize the main stories of the Bible. The drawings are fabulous and full of colors. The action is pictured in such a way that kids of all ages will be digging more in their Bible. When I received this new product I immediately showed it to my husband. He basically learned reading while going through comic books. He even had a copy of the Picture Bible when he was younger. What was his reaction? This is what he said:`
"Wow!" and after flipping through the book "FINALLY a publisher has made a comic book Bible that looks amazing! I can't wait to go through it myself." *grin*
You see I knew he would get excited about this specific Bible. And I also knew that my nine year old would be enthusiastic when he see it. So guess who saw it next? Yes - Alexandre's eyes popped out of their sockets when he saw the cover. And he was very thrilled to see it. Problem is, mommy was leaving for a retreat and was bringing the Action Bible with her to explore it more. And I did. I even read it while away for the week-end.Read more ›
