    Hott Review: What I liked:A while back I reviewed The Action Bib

    Hott Review:
    What I liked:A while back I reviewed The Action Bible Devotional and then I got it for my son for Christmas. Why? Because he detests devotionals but this set somehow speaks to the heart of non-readers and makes the Bible applicable to their life.
    This particular installment has been a God-send to our home. It’s so easy to now find easy relations when we’re discussing biblical terms or ethical actions.
    Thank you David C. Cook for, once again, bringing me a book I didn’t realize I needed!
    What I didn’t like: I haven’t gotten The Action Bible, yet!

    A Bible Dictionary that is illustrated by Sergio Cariello! Outstanding. This Bible Dictionary is filled with information about Bible-time people, places and customs that not only is easy to read but is also fun to read and hard to put down. Even if you have used a Bible Dictionary before you are going to like this one because, I believe, it has new information that other Bible Dictionaries do not have. To make this book as helpful as possible there is the page number in "The Action Bible" where you can find the defined term. If you are using any other version of The Bible then Bible verse references are provided where you can find the person, place or thing. If you are interested in a particular topic this book can provide the stepping off place for you. This is a resource that will be referred to over and over again. It is also a wonderful gift to give to family and friends so that they can use it over and over.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley for the purpose of review. The review is my honest opinion and I was not paid for this service.

    The Action Bible Handbook is a wonderfully illustrated companion to not only The Action Bible, but for any Bible. It gives detailed information on many names, places and terms that are found throughout the Bible. I liked how organized the information was. It also gave you the page number of where you could find the name, place or term in The Action Bible or scripture from The Bible. I found this to be extremely helpful.

    This book was very well written and full of so much information that I did not know previously. I like how they added appropriate illustrations in just the right places to help keep your attention. The information was written plainly so that even a young child could understand it.

    I recommend this book for anyone who is studying the Bible or who wants to learn more about the Bible. It is definitely a wonderful resource that every home should have a copy of.
