How do you get preteens to read the Bible?…Here’s one way!

September 13, 2011 — Leave a comment

One of the hardest parts of ministering to preteens is overcoming the myth that the Bible is boring or stale. If we can just get them to engage in the Scripture, it will prove itself as anything but boring and stale. But how do we create that spark?

I was recently given a copy of The Almighty Bible, and I’m really impressed with this resource. The Almighty Bible is produced as a graphic novel for each book of the Bible. Each novel is full of illustrations that coincide with the Biblical text. The Almighty Bible is not intended to be the only Bible your child owns, therefore it is not a word-for-word translation of Scripture. Even though some of the Biblical text is summarized or omitted to keep the novel format, the stories that are told are incredibly accurate to Scripture. The series is designed to generate an interest in Scripture that will lead preteens to a deeper study of a more traditional Bible, and from my reviews, I think it does just that.

I asked several preteens to look through the copies that I was given, and their responses were priceless. One student turned page after page after page, and all he could say is, “This is the coolest Bible ever!” Another student read a story from II Samuel and asked, “Did this really happen?”  Based on their intrigue alone, I would say be sure to order your copy!

In summary, The Almighty Bible blends the timeless and perfect Word of God with the high-definition media that saturates a preteen’s life.  This combination creates a great spark that will pull a preteen into the Bible and fuel their journey through God’s story.  The book series, the iPad app, the online club, and much more—make this resource a must have for the preteen in your life.
