Reviews - What do customers think about NIV Teen Devotional Bible-HC?
"One of the five best books to leave with your Christian teenager...." Jan 1, 2006
In short, this bible is GREAT!
If you want teens to read the bible, you must give them one which is:
1. Accurate in translation 2. Easy to read 3. Broken down into bite-sized portions 4. Organized in a creative and attractive manner
The Teen Devotional Bible hits the mark on all four. I have worked with teenagers for over twenty years as a public school teacher, and I also have a seminary degree. Trust me, you will be very glad you turned your teen on to this bible. It has now made my list of 'must have' books to leave with teenagers if you could only choose 5:
1. The Teen Devotional Bible (Barnhill) 2. What the Bible is All About for Young Explorers (Mears) 3. The Purpose Filled Life (Warren) 4. Dragons, Grasshoppers & Frogs--Revelation for teens (Parks) 5. If God Loves Me Why Can't I Get My Locker Open? (Peterson)
I cannot add much to the compliments others have already paid. Kudos to Carla Barnhill for this contribution to the teaching of God's Word to young people!
Really Cool Bible for Teens!!! Jul 4, 2005
I ordered this Bible for my daughter. She and another girl in her youth group here in Sweden (we are Americans serving over seas) shared it with some of the other girls and it has actually become top of the other girls wish lists for their birthdays! It has practical stories the girls can relate to and thought provoking questions that are appropriately worded. Other bibles I have looked at sometimes discuss things in ways that I would prefer talking to my daughter about. This uses the Word only! Great Word of God!!
Excellent devotional bible Feb 1, 2005
This is an excellent devotional Bible. The first reviewer who doesn't like the Bible because it condemns witchcraft is completely ignorant of New Testament Greek, and seems to dislike anything that cramps their lifestyle or beliefs. The NIV is an excellent translation based on the oldest and best manuscripts and translated by people who actually know Greek, and don't use alternate definitions that don't reflect the true text in order to make things that are condemned by the Bible seem accaptable. If you want your kids to learn what the Bible says, and not what a Wiccan wants it to say, this is a great devotional Bible.
This bible is so good, I just keep buying it Jun 21, 2004
When my kids asked to buy their own bible five years ago I was so excited. We got right in the car and went to the Christian bookstore. My kids looked at several student and teen bibles, and this is the one they chose. It is an awesome blend of devotions, teen stories, neat information, and the Bible in contemporary english. They were immediately attracted to the bold colors and the layout. We purchased two.
Through the years we have had an opportunity to buy or suggest this bible to other teens, too. Cousins, friends, and youth at the church. I think I have personally purchased about 6 of them. Buy one for your teen! You won't be disappointed!
Excellent Study Bible geared toward today's teens Feb 3, 2004
My teenage daughter got bored and frustrated with her King James study Bible; this Bible has been such a blessing to her because of it's readability and understandability. Let's face it...the KJV of the Bible is difficult and tedious even for the most scholarly person...what's important is that my daughter now immerses herself in the Word and reads it daily. I highly recommend this Bible as a gift to your favorite teeneager; It brings the Word alive and is geared especially toward teenagers.
