I got the bibles for my daughters hoping they would be interested in reading them, and it worked, they love the bibles. They said it was easy to read and understand and they like how the bible is in a novel form.
I read "The Story" a couple of years ago, so when I saw it was available for teenagers, I bought it as a gift for a 12 year old boy in my neighborhood. His mother was tragically murdered this year, and he needs to know and understand that Jesus loves him.
This is a great place for teens to start if they haven't been brought up with the bible. Therefore, it makes it great for anyone who hasn't been brought up with bible stories. I felt it was written well and the main points were able to show the track record of humans. Overall, I enjoyed reading The Story and would recommend it to anyone wanting a glimpse at what they are about to learn in the Bible.
