Reviews for The Blockbuster Bible

"Thrilling, engaging, clear and faithful! This is a wonderful book, to help younger Christians understand the Bible better, and also to introduce complete beginners and even sceptics to a book that has profoundly shaped the world we live in. Though written with a younger audience in mind, the combination of clarity and profundity will mean that many adults will hugely benefit from this book. With books like this I often wonder if I'll have to choose between books that look visually great, and books that have really good text. With this book we don't have to choose - it has both. I can't wait for my 10-year old daughter - and many like her - to get a copy and start reading" Matt Searles - Director of Training for the South Central Gospel Partnership

"Two thumbs up! Five stars! Certified Fresh!

It doesn't matter which rating system you use, the Blockbuster Bible is a hit! Its innovative use of colourful graphics and a clever variety of texts draws the reader through the Big Story of the Bible, making it both accessible and compelling. Scripts, storyboards and speeches, just to name a few, are employed to tell the story, and flash-forward/flashback signs point out how one Bible event is linked to another. It's an Oscar winning formula designed to entertain, inform and guarantee repeat viewings for you and your children."

Bob Hartman - Performance storyteller

"A superb overview of the Bible, which tells its overarching story in an engaging and accessible way." Vaughan Roberts, Church Minister and Director
