This bible is attractive with its chevron design. The imitation leather has a great feel to it. As stated in the description of the retail sites, it has a dictionary that the youth can use as an easy reference point to find the pertinent verses. For example, let’s say he/she wanted to look up the word lie. In other words, not telling the truth. It references Proverbs 30:8 – “First, help me never to tell a lie. Second, give me neither poverty nor riches! Give me just enough to satisfy my needs.” This may lead to another discussion about poverty and riches. What does that mean? It can spark a discussion with their parents. The attractive ribbon bookmark makes it easy to save your place. It includes a 365 daily reading plan as well as colorful maps.
It appears to be a standard bible and I’m not sure that I would classify it as a youth bible. There’s no lesson plans for the youth to refer to. I do like the bold statement at the beginning of the bible that gives a great reminder of God’s love which states, “My victory and honor come from God alone. He is my refuge, a rock where no enemy can reach me.” Psalm 62:7. I would recommend this bible for teens or an adult.
I was provided with a complimentary copy of this bible from Tyndale and was not required to write a positive review.
