Specialty Bible Review BIBLEFORCE: The First Heroes Bible

This review is meant for parents, teachers, and other people that work with children to read.

To me, this is a storybook that describes different parts of Scripture. To start out with this BIBLEFORCE: The First Heroes Bible describes some important information about the Bible including how the Bible books are broken out, maps about different topics, a timeline, and other important information regarding the Bible. It highlights different people in the Bible that it considers heroes and lists some important details about them before their story told about them from the Bible in storybook format. Each story has the Scripture it came from listed under the title of the story so if children want they can go read the Scriptures the stories came from for themselves or have it read to them.

I found this storybook Bible very interesting as an adult so I think children will like it so much more. The pictures were very colorful and I feel they will capture children's attention and bring them deeper into the Biblical stories. I sometimes looked up the Scriptures that the stories represented and they seemed to follow them very well. Sometimes I felt like they were condensed and fictionalized a little bit to help children and other people reading it to understand what might have happened if it was unknown in relation to Scripture, and that information had to have been unknown anyway since we don't really know what the people's clothes looked like or exactly what the people in the Bible looked like during those times either.

I also found that this storybook Bible focused on some books of the Bible more than others but I am glad it went in the order that most Bibles I have read go in. When it got to the New Testament I'm glad it spent a decent amount of time talking about Jesus (Yeshua). I found most of the stories to be common stories that are taught a lot in children's Bible school classes but occasionally ran across ones that I don't think are as common, like some of the stories about Paul from the book of Acts.

Some highlights for me were how one story described how the 12 stones of Israel came to be in Joshua 4 and when Jesus was asked when God would give the Kingdom back to Israel from Acts 1.

My review= 5 out of 5 stars
