I love this book.

This book, originally published as a five volume paperback collection, is a wonderful find. Basically you have the bible in comic book form. When I was in elementary school, someone donated the the five volume edition to our library. It was immediately popular. Everyone wanted to be reading it.

This omnibus edition is in full color.

The primary drawback to this edition, as compared to the five volume set, is that this version has been edited. Certain scenes have been removed (remember the dogs after Jezebel was thrown out the window? They're gone.). Perhaps this is for the better, I rather wish they hadn't taken stuff out.

Either way, it is a great book for kids (I bought it for mine). If you are an adult and want to get to know the Bible stories quickly and in a fun manner, try this book.
