    I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley for the purpose of review The review is my honest opinion and I was not paid for this service Totally Awesome Super Cool Bible Stories as drawn by Nerdy Ned is a whimsical retelling of various Bible Stories as seen through the eyes of a child The stories are easy to read and understand with cute drawings done by a child accompanying each story The author did an awesome job grabbing the reader's attention and keeping it You can actually picture Nerdy Ned standing before you and telling you the story The stories are well written and very descriptiveThe author did a wonderful job bringing the characters to life while keeping the facts behind the Bible stories present in the stories The author was very creative in writing an uniue story to entice not only children but those new to the Bible to spark an interest in reading God's word I recommend this book for anyone who has children or grandchildren as this is an excellent way to entice them to want to learn about God I also recommend this book for someone who is new to the faith as an introduction to the Bible While this book is catered towards young children it will also be enjoyed by adults and teens

    Totally Awesome Super Cool Bible Stories as Drawn by Nerdy Ned is targeted at late Elementary to early Middle School kids to tell the stories of the Bible in an entertaining but respectful way Corey Adams works in some great illustrations along the way provides the readers with spaces to doodle and tells the major stories that make up the Bible Corey throws in humor just enough to keep things interesting but doesn’t go far off point The language is definitely over the top but not in a way that diminishes the meaning of the storiesWe start off in Genesis seeing the Creation and Fall and working our way through Noah Babel Abraham Isaac Jacob and Joseph We move through Exodus making sure to include the Ten Commandments along the way Judges touches on some of the main judges we know in that book – Deborah Samson and Gideon We meet Ruth Samuel Saul and David We move through the major and minor prophets spending a bit time on Daniel than the others but that works in this contextCorey then moves to the New Testament starting with John the Baptist and Jesus He spends several chapters following the life and teachings of Jesus summarizing them in an entertaining but accurate manner However when it comes to the final days of Jesus leading up to the cross Corey takes a somber tone He writes of the trial crucifixion and burial of Jesus in a serious tone with much less joking That works well to emphasize this part is important At the resurrection things get a little jovial because all is right againWe end the New Testament section following Acts Paul and so on Corey summarizes some of the major points Paul makes in his letters in one chapter emphasizing their importance though ending with a texting summary He does say that he prefers Paul’s version He finally ends with the Revelation when Jesus will come backMy thoughts Overall I think this is a decent summary Some parts may be a little too silly for my tastes but I’m not the target audience Some parts may not uite be summarized the way I would do so or perhaps emphasize a different point but there’s nothing inherently wrong with the way Corey tells the stories This is definitely not a replacement for a real Bible but could be useful to point out some of the stories in the Bible to those who find it hard to concentrate or read through the Bible The spots to doodle could be useful though some guidance on what might be good to doodle would have been appreciated – in the way that the Doodle books are popular now It’s something I would consider letting my kid read though with enough checking in to make sure they weren’t taking everything in here literally I enjoyed the illustrations throughout and think they worked well to emphasize the main points of the storiesDisclaimer I was provided with a preview copy of this book with no expectations The opinions expressed are my own and were not influenced by anyone else

    I know I know It's for the kids I'm an old fuddy duddy I'm going to get a lot of not helpful votes because you disagree with me I understand that But I have to be honest So please bear with meNerdy Ned offers a Christian alternative to books like Timmy Failure and Diary of a Wimpy Kid series Nerdy Ned re tells the highlights of the Bible and I'm torn by it But mostly I'm not a fanI'm sure the intention was admirable and the execution is certainly appealing but I'm a bit perturbed by the frivolous nature with which this book treats the BibleIt's certainly cute to hear a child convey the lessons they've learned in a recent Sunday School class but when it's an adult using a childish voice it's something differentYou end up with a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy and so onIf you read a passage of scripture to a child and they re tell it in a simplified way it's evidence that they've heard what you read and processed it as they attempt to understand it When you preach down to them however it discourages them from actually making it their own They don't process it in the same way and the important uestions that result from honest Bible study aren't thereThey assume it's already answered and they tend to check outThere is definitely a place for this book and it's uite clever and enjoyable and I'll certainly be sharing it with my boys But I HIGHLY STRONGLY SERIOUSLY recommend balancing it with a devotional like Grace for the Moment 365 Devotions for Kids andor a Bible study like Awesome Bible Verses Every Kid Should Know and What They Mean that even has awesome in the title tooI'm not a wet blanket I promise I'm just pulling for the next generation from TRudATmusicdotcomslashraw 43013

    Got this from NetGalley in exchange for a reviewI love the Bible and I love that Adams wants to make it accesible to kidsUnfortunately he seems at a loss for how to do thatUsing catch phrases like totally awesome and super cool is not the way to a child's imagination Neither are horrible black and white illustrations I'm talking middle school art class ualityI might've gotten farther into it had not the dumbed down version of the bible began to stray from my the plain and precious truths taught by my church If I'm going to indoctrinate my kids I'll at least make sure the doctrine is sound
