I purchased the Action Bible for my son last year. It quickly reverted from a single present to Mark, to a family present. We all (including myself!) love this Bible. The illustrations are absolutely fantastic, the stories accurate, solid Biblically, and are written in such a way as to grab the reader and pull them into the actual pages.
Andy Nasselli did a great review of the Action Bible. You can find that HERE.
And check out this YouTube video below of one of the stories–it will give you a great example of the writing and illustrating that has gone into this book.
I highly, highly recommend it for people of all ages.
