This Bible is perfectly created for teen girls ages 13-18. I reviewed a different teen Bible earlier this year that was a little mature for younger teens, but this one isn’t! While some of the devotions wouldn’t be relevant to younger kids, I would have no objection to my 8 year olds reading this Bible. To top it off, I love the simple elegance of the black and pink interior. Classy.
About the features:
Daily readings: The daily devotionals aren’t numbered or anything, so there is no stress if you aren’t reading one a day or if you miss a day. On the down side, they really don’t seem to follow a pattern. They are inserted near the theme verse for the devotion, but there is no Bible reading plan. Some days they recommend reading several chapters, other times it is only one verse. Sometimes there are two devotions facing each other, sometimes they are separated by several pages. It’s just kind of random. There is an index in the back that lists out all of the titles and the page numbers they are found on. That index doesn’t tell you the focus verses though.
Character Profiles: The character profiles give a featured verse, the meaning of the name, and where her story is found in the Bible. Then it gives a summary. These were all put together fabulously and included in a relevant section on Scripture on a stand alone page. Very well done.
Book Introductions: I absolutely love these!! They were written in a conversational tone while delivering a ton of information, like what the book is about and who wrote it. Each page also included the where and when it was written, key people in the book, and popular verses.
Highlighted Promises of God: These verse are in context with a pink highlight on the back. Very similar to what it looks like when you highlight text on your Kindle or other device/app. You can still highlight or mark the text and it isn’t separated in any other way than the pink background. Very nicely done, and super helpful for finding God’s promises. I wish there was something in the index for these though. That would rock! As it is, you just flip through until you see one or read until you come across one. Which is fine. It would just be nice to have a reference of where they are (of course the more you add to the Bible, the thicker, heavier, and more expensive it becomes).
Concordance: This is my favorite part of the Bible. It has a complete concordance at the end as well as a topical index. Seriously, why doesn’t every Bible have this?!?!
More about the Bible
The pages of this Bible seem to be a little thicker than the average Bible page thickness. Love that! It is a hardcover, which is awesome, however, mine was already dented on the edges when it came in the mail (in its padded envelope), which makes me wonder how it will actually hold up over time…
That being said, I obviously love this Bible. I was going to donate it to the youth group at my church when I was finished with it, but I may just keep it…
