Two Boys & the Action Bible Devotional


These two monkey are my sons. Ryan, the one on the left, is 10 years old and in the 5th grade. Dylan, the one that needs a haircut, is on the right and he’s 9 years old and in the 3rd grade. They are 100% boys, and I love to bounce things off them from time to time. I mean that both literally with objects and figuratively like books that publishers send me.

One of these such books is The Action Bible from my friends at David C. Cook. They’ve had an Action Bible in their bedrooms for over a year, so they were familiar with the graphical wonderland of this fun book. David C. Cook  sent us a devotional for me try out, so I passed it on to the boys and told them I’d ask some questions after two weeks. (The devotion is broken up into one-a-week segments, but I asked them to complete at least 5 of the devotions. )

The questions are mine, but the responses are straight from them!

#1. Tell me about The Action Bible. What is it? How is it different than  other bibles?


RYAN || Well, the action bible is totally different because it’s all in comic book form of the bible! It’s every thing a boy would love!
DYLAN ||  It is different then other bibles becouse you can write in it and it gives me questions.

#2. What were some things you liked about the Action Bible Devotional?

RYAN ||  I liked the missions you had to do after you read the little comic. Like there was one where you had to build noahs’s ark out of legos or something. I also like the ‘x-ray vision’ which was about what the story meant and how to apply it to our lives.

DYLAN ||  I loved the missions most of all!

#3. Was it easy to use the devotional?

RYAN ||  Yes, it was very easy to use it with all the ‘inside information’ and instructions for the things you could do.

DYLAN || Yes, because you just write down whatever you learn from reading it.

#4. Is there something you didn’t like about the devotional?

RYAN ||  There isn’t anything that makes me not like it.
DYLAN ||  Not really.

#5. Why is it important for kids like you to read the Bible?

RYAN ||  I think it’s important for kids like me to read the bible so we could know how to act like jesus and learn about making wise choices.

DYLAN || Because we learn stuff and when you learn stuff you get smarter.
