The NIV True Images Bible is a Bible for teen girls. It is full of extra content designed to help teen girls with stuff like body image, decision making, friendships, and sex, more.
This Bible starts with helpful information for the reader about reading the Bible, whether they are very familiar with the Bible, or if this is the first time they've picked one up. The back of the book has guides for reading, study ideas, and Christianity basics. Included throughout are 52 profiles of women in the Bible, topic guides, "love notes" from God and space for reflection. Each book begins with the author, date, setting, verses to remember, themes to consider, and life lessons. This Bible relates the stories within to things a teen girl might experience.
I would recommend this Bible for pre-teens (rather than teenagers) who have never read the Bible before, as the content is geared toward a younger audience. The physical Bible itself is very nice. It is a sturdy hardcover with a beautiful dust jacket and cover. Overall I would give this Bible 4/5 stars.

I bought this Bible for my 12 year old daughter for Christmas. I have to admit it has been a hard year, I lost my precious Dad, sold my childhood home and bought a new home. Dad was a Christian--I know we will see him again one day. My Daughter and I miss him terribly. We were Daddy/PawPaw girls. The Christmas Spirit has been hard to find, but today I came home and the Bible arrived. I was so happy and as I thumbed through the beautiful pages, text and words of God a warm and wonderful feeling filled my heart. I marked Romans 12 with the book mark. My favorite scripture. The Bible is amazing, the cover is so beautiful and the little readings directed towards Teens are uplifting. I can not wait to give my daughter her bible on Christmas morning. The Day we celebrate the Birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. Thank you! Merry Christmas
This Bible is excellent and my 13 yr old daughter likes it. I only wish it didn't have the graphics on the "gold leaf". It makes it look too young for a teen girl. I really like that it has the extra insight blurbs for a teen girl.
I MUCH prefer the 1984 NIV and got this for a teen girl I'm disciplining. She absolutely loves it! It has such helpful explanations and little devotionals that make her think biblically about various areas of her life. It has helped inspire her to read daily! I do wish it was a red-letter edition. That is my only disappointment (and I hadn't thought to check for that before I ordered!)
