I've been a missionary & pastor for 35 years. I've used about every youth resource there is, but this gets them right into the story of the Bible from cover to cover. My group is really into it! I show them both the teen video and the adult video.
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.
