How do you make a youth Bible that speaks to teenagers? One that answers the questions they have, speaks to issues they face, and is presented in a way that appeals to them?
Simple. You don’t just make it for them.
This new edition of the Good News Youth Bible is made through a unique partnership between the Bible Society and Youth For Christ. Helping young people connect the Bible with their lives, the GNB Youth Bible way put together with the assistance of young Christians. They shared ideas, told what matters to them, and gave ways that a Bible could be made that would encourage them to read it more. And they were heard.
This GNB Youth Bible features a whole new journaling element to is. Whether it’s through drawing, writing, colouring and other ways of creative engagement, this Bible lets young people express themselves in response to the text. There are wide margins, spaces to doodle, and fill in. The GNB Youth Bible also features questions and prompts with space for answers. And these are on every page of the Bible.
But it’s not only through allowing youthful creativity that this Bible was made.
There are also an abundance of extras that help open up what the Bible is saying in a clear, hassle-free way. The GNB Youth Bible also features:
footnotes that explain the references
what to read to know who Jesus is
a timeline of the Bible story
“How to Use This Bible”
“The Big Issues and What the Bible Says About Them”
The GNB Youth Bible also takes the experience of reading God’s word off the page, and onto the screen. The Bible Society and Youth For Christ have also made a dedicated video playlist that explores a range of issues youth face, and answers some questions that they may have.
Made by youth, for youth, this new Good News Bible is a modern and engaging resource for encouraging teens in turning to the Bible for all things
