Adventure Bible Handbook by Robin Schmitt and David Frees Book Review

When an archaeologist on an expedition in the Holy Land disappears, his four children are willing to try anything to find him. Dragging his assistant along, they join an offbeat tour group run by two zany guides whose mission, it turns out, is to lead kids from all over the world on a life-changing quest for truth. Soon the group is visiting ancient cities, exploring important geographical sites, and traveling back in time to experience biblical events firsthand---with the help of some Really Smart Phones (RSPs), a bunch of camels, jet skis, ATVs, hang gliders, and other wacky modes of transportation. Along the way, the children look for clues to their father's whereabouts and learn facts about ancient Bible times, the people, the culture, and witness important historical events, like the parting of the Red Sea, the building and filling of Noah's ark, and the crucifixion of Jesus. 
As they continue searching and their father is not to be found, the kids are tempted to give up. But finishing this crazy tour may just be the key to finding their father---and learning what life is all about!
The Adventure Bible Handbook is the newest addition to the Adventure Bible family of titles. The Adventure Bible is the #1 Bible for kids, packed with fun features that lead kids on an exciting journey through God's Word and help build on their relationship with God.

 My Thoughts:

Adventure Bible Handbook is a very fun eye catching handbook for kids to read to add to their Bible reading. The pages are colorful. The illustrations are delightful to look at. If your kids like archeology then this is a fun way to introduce Biblical archeology to them.

This is not what I would consider a Bible though. It’s more like an extra way to learn about some things in God’s word. It’s more like an action paced- fast summary of the Bible in comic book form. 

I did notice some errors in the Biblical account which bug me. I also realize that with this Handbook being in comic book form it can only have so much and left a few things out. Some of it that didn’t match up or was changed in the scripture is not very appealing to me as I think they could of kept in more in line with the scripture.

Another part that didn’t appeal to me was a paragraph in the “Apostles Creed” I think they could of left out the part on the, “Holy Catholic Church”. They did and amazing job explaining the steps of salvation. In the middle of the “Apostles Creed” they added in their doctrine. You will have to decide for yourself if this is a stumbling block for you. It is on page 219.

All in all a very nice Bible Handbook that is very appealing to kids.
