I don’t have any teens in my house yet – thank goodness! However, I think that the Teen Study Bible seems well designed for teens and will be a great tool when my kids reach that age.
The King James Version isn’t my favorite but the New Kings James Version is a definite improvement and more understandable. I think that when kids reach their teen years they are ready to dive deeper into the word and are ready to see different versions and interpretations of the Bible. There is a preface to the NKJV that helps explain it in detail.
I like the “how to use this Bible section” that breaks down the specific tools of this particular Bible and how to best utilize them. It is a study Bible with the most available tools I’ve seen in one Bible.
Some features include “We believe” which lays out the Christian faith all throughout the Bible when a verse of chapter references this. Another is the “Dear Jordan” which is basically an advice column which I thought was a really interesting angle and one I’ve never seen. “What do I read today” is a great reading plan to help guide teens through reading the Bible.
I think my favorite feature is the “Bible Promises” that highlights in a blue bubble promises of the Bible. What a great thing to focus on when reading through!
Other superficial features I like are the blue print at each section and the Questions, To the Point, Panorama and Instant Access through ought to keep them thinking and going deeper.
The Teen Study Bible is the most detailed study Bible I’ve seen and while designed for teens, really makes a great study Bible for adults as well!
