The Action Bible and Jackson-Feild

Thanks to the generosity of the Episcopal Church Women of the Diocese of Virginia and the members of St. Martin’s Episcopal Church in Williamsburg, the boys and girls at Jackson-Feild have brand new Action Bibles!

The best-selling Action Bible – created by a member of Marvel Comics – is designed to be action-grabbing through illustrations full of rich color and bold designs that brings to life the emotions and significance of the stories and figures of the Bible.

Jackson-Feild’s chaplain The Rev. Dr. Robin Jones will use the Action Bible’s four-step lesson path to engage teens at every step. The path starts by setting the stage to help teens feel comfortable with the Bible, and then brings the Bible stories and passages to life through animation. It helps readers make a connection and prompts them to ask questions. The Action Bible helps the boys and girls understand who God is and what they mean to Him, and it helps them develop their own value system.

Everyone involved in the Spiritual Program at Jackson-Feild is grateful to St. Martin’s and the ECW of the Diocese of Virginia for funding the purchase of these Bibles that will help to connect timeless truths to life today.
