A warning label should have been issued on the cover mentioning that extra-biblical, mature content was included. As a wife of a youth pastor I understand the need to discuss ORAL SEX and "MY GUY"/dating and HOMOSEXUALITY but not in the Bible. The examples seemed crass, too. At least give parents the option to rip out the pages or a separate study guide that can be given at the appropriate time. I don't appreciate Zondervan taking this parental right and responsibility out of my hands. This was my daughter's birthday gift and it was even monogrammed. Geesh. Very disappointing. Very irresponsible.
Bought this Bible several times for teens that are being baptized. They were thrilled with the Bible, its way of presenting information and the daily studies. Would recommend it to anyone wanting to give a Bible to a teen girl!
The quality of this Bible is great and the print on the edge of the pages adds a little extra "girly" touch to it. I bought this for my 13 year old granddaughter that just got baptized. I wanted to get her a nice Bible that would be informative and would help her grow in her relationship with Christ. However, I am so disappointed! Upon reading a comment from another viewer, I looked up "sex" in the topical index and sure enough there it was....."oral sex" page 123!!! I do not feel this is appropriate for a 13 year old girl....maybe 16, but definately not 13! I am so disappointed that I can not give her this Bible :( but all the 13 year olds that I know are not quite ready for that topic!
