The Picture Bible

The Picture Bible
By Iva Hoth. Chariot Victor Publishing. 800 pages

We bought this one because I remembered enjoying it so much as a kid. I had encountered it as a series of smaller volumes in our church library, and loved them. It took us a long time to find it and then we discovered this hardback all-in-one edition (and this one is in color!). Bible stories are faithfully told in a comic strip format. I know the words ‘comic strip’ used in conjunction with the Bible does not bode well, but this one is well done.

While we were trying to find The Picture Bible we bought a copy of The Lion Graphic Bible. The animation is more update in the Lion book, but the stories are not as faithfully or tastefully done. I would recommend passing on the Lion Graphic Bible, but the Picture Bible is a good addition and a fun way for younger readers to read the basic story line of the Bible.

I've been reading through the Picture Bible with my son every night for the past several months. We've almost made it through the whole book, and it's been great.
