Author Info

Sergio Cariello was born in Brazil in 1964 and started drawing as soon as could hold a pencil.  At the age of five, he already knew that he wanted to be a cartoonist.  And so did everyone else--he drew on church bulletins, napkins, and every surface within his reach.  He currently resides in Holiday, Florida.

Sergio has worked for Marvel Comics and DC Comics.  He attended the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art as well as the Word of Life Bible Institute in upstate New York.

In February, 2006, he was contacted by David C. Cook to gauge his interest in a new project; completely re-illustrating Cook's classic Picture Bible.  What David C. Cook couldn't know is that Sergio had grown up in Brazil with a Portuguese translation of that very same Picture Bible.  He was reading the Picture Bible before he learned to ride a bike! Even though he knew as a kid that he wanted to be a comic artist, he never would have dreamed that he would one day get to work on the Picture Bible itself!

My kids love this

I have 3 boys whom I have given each a copy of this action bible, and I just recently bought another one for my nephew.

It is not the actual word of God, which is important to remember, it’s not a bible so it should not replace a real written bible BUT it is a very good supplement to it. Especially for those reluctant readers, it is very much like a comic book but the important part is-Jesus is the hero. It’s quite impressive how much bible history and trivia my kids know because of this action bible. When we read the word of God together they can often remember the comic version of the story and will tell me interesting facts about the people even before we have begun reading.

Very cool

I purchased this Bible for my kids (11 & 8) as they have been getting into graphic novels lately. They are loving it! They are discovering stories they haven't heard yet or really paid attention to that are brought to life with the amazing illustrations and easy to read comic book style. Although not a replacement for a literal translation, chapter and verse Bible, this is a great addition to our library and I would highly recommend this for pre teens!


My daughter didn't fall for it right away (she was 8) because she was unfamiliar with a 'graphic novel'/'comic book' format. But once she gave it a try she commented that she appreciated the dramatized illustrations because they made the stories more exciting and the conversations between the characters brought the content to life. And now my husband is hooked as well! My 5 year-old boy is still scared of the graphics though. Maybe a few years later for him.

Perfect for Kids

My two boys 7 & 9 love this and have learned ever more detail about the rich biblical story of God in History from it.
