About the Author

Born in Brazil, Sergio Cariello spent many childhood hours poring over The Picture Bible (Portuguese edition), never dreaming that decades later he would illustrate the updated edition of The Action Bible. Sergio has worked for Marvel Comics and DC Comics, and has illustrated Batman, Spider-Man, Superman, Iron Man, Wonder Woman, and dozens more characters. He loves to fly drones and attend comic book conventions to stay connected with his peers and fans, but he especially enjoys telling people about Jesus through his illustrations and teaching God's Word when he travels.

CHAPTER 1

In the Beginning


THERE WAS NOTHING.

EXCEPT GOD.


Day 2

THEN GOD SEPARATED THE WATERS OF THE NOTHINGNESS INTO THE MOISTURE AND CLOUDS OF THE SKY ABOVE, AND THE DROPS AND WAVES OF THE OCEAN BELOW. GOD NAMED THE SKY "HEAVENS."


Day 3

GOD NAMED THE LOWER WATERS THE "SEA." HE GATHERED TOGETHER THE WATERS OF THE SEA, EXPOSING DRY GROUND. HE NAMED THE DRY LAND "EARTH." ON THIS LAND, HE MADE GRASS AND FLOWERS AND TREES. HE MADE THEM WITH SEEDS SO THEY COULD GROW MORE GRASS AND FLOWERS AND TREES. THE FRUITFUL EARTH WAS A PLACE OF BEAUTY.

AND GOD KNEW THAT IT WAS GOOD.


Day 4

THEN GOD FASHIONED THE SUN, THE MOON, AND THE STARS TO LIGHT THE EARTH. AND HE SET THEM IN THE HEAVENS TO MARK THE DAYS, SEASONS AND YEARS.


Day 5

GOD SAID, "LET THE WATER BE FILLED WITH LIVING CREATURES!" AND THE SEAS AND RIVERS SWARMED WITH WHALES AND FISH.

GOD SAID, "LET BIRDS FLY THROUGH THE SKY." AND THE OPEN SKY ABOVE THE EARTH WAS FILLED WITH EVERY KIND OF FLYING BIRD.

"BE FRUITFUL AND FILL THE EARTH," GOD SAID AS HE BLESSED THE LIVING CREATURES OF THE SEA AND SKY.

AND GOD KNEW THAT IT WAS GOOD.
