At last! Teens get the Bible that's got all the right stuff for the life they face.
Tough, smart, easy to use and packed with youth focused helps and resources, it comes in a crate... almost! Not a paper sleeve – a good strong box with a strong image on the lid. For me, that’s the best sign you can get that there’s something worth having inside. And there is. In this box is a solid, fully grown up study Bible reinforced with extra resources every young person needs to get them safely through the challenging teenage years. Built for the times when faith is strengthened or seriously damaged, this Bible doesn’t gloss over the issue. It openly admits: “Yes, life is tough. And it’s getting tougher; but you can get through it – and here’s how!”
With six different cover options, every taste, pocket and preference is covered - from the sharp, no nonsense ‘Steel City’ edition for built for life on the streets, through the affordable paperback and prize-worthy hardback, to the vivaciously feminine ‘Pink Fields’ and even a retro ‘Tie-Dye’ model. Inside, the print is a good size for young eyes, though the paper is - as usual with well stuffed study Bibles, a bit thin. But at least the bindings are tough as old trainers.
And you want a youth Bible to be practical if it’s going to encourage use. The one line summary chapter headings make every story and theme easy to find, just by flipping the pages.Of course, it’s packed with teen-focused study notes, real life testimony and the straight talking guidance you’d expect in a youth Bible. ‘This,’ – as the strap line on the box says, ‘isn’t a text book – it’s God talking.’ - Les Ellison
