Book Review: Teen Study Bible, NIV


The Teen Study Bible is a great basic introductory study Bible for teens.  It’s a hardcover Bible with the focus of helping affirm believers in their faith and realize the relevance of scripture for daily living.  The publisher outlines these sections of the Bible:

  • “We Believe”—Unpacks the Apostles’ Creed to reveal the biblical foundation of faith
  • “Panorama”—Keeps the big picture of each book of the Bible in view
  • Topical indexes—Help with in-depth Bible study
  • Book introductions—Provide an overview for each book of the Bible
  • Bible Promises—Highlighted Bible verses worth memorizing
  • Q & As—Test Bible knowledge
  • 4 full-color pages—Includes a presentation page and information about the Apostles’ Creed
  • 8-page, color map section
  • Biblical advice about friends, family, school, and other issues

I would recommend this book for teen girls or boys who want to dig a little bit deeper into scripture.  It does not have the hefty cross-reference sections that other study Bibles have, but it does have many teaching points for teens seeking to integrate faith into their daily lives.  I especially like the Bible Truth Index and the Teen Life index, which help readers quickly find topics that they need to learn more about.

I received this book as a gift from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
