*I received a copy of this bible in exchange for my honest review.The teenage years can be hard for any young person, so giving them their own special Bible filled with special passages and notes is a wonderful thing. The NIV Revolution Bible gives teen guys the chance to help find Gods plan for their life and discover Gods truth on various topics. I think this is a great thing to be included in any Bible, especially one meant for young teen guys. By teenage years most young guys are already facing these two questions, so what better guide for them to look at than the Bible.
Besides answering some of the biggest life questions, this Bible has many more great features like; in-depth book introductions and 12-full colored pages that show life-impacting ideas. While I sometimes dislike extra stuff inside of the Bible, I do feel the things added in this Bible were perfect for the intended age group and those who may be reading it.
The NIV Revolution Bible is written in the easier to read New International Version which is also a plus for this Bible because it is one of my more favorite Bible versions.
NIV Revolution: The Bible For Teen Guys, published by Zondervan, is a Bible designed to enhance the relations teen guys have with their Lord and Savior, while growing in their faith and knowledge of Gods Word.
This Bible is packed with amazing features such as: The complete text of the NIV version, 12 full-color pages of life impacting ideas, in-depth book introductions, more than 200 articles entitled Be The Change, 100 notes that point to verses throughout the Bible to revolutionize its readers lives, as well as many other features.
There are several sections that are worth noting, such as the sections entitled Christianity 101 and Beliefs 101. These sections, found near the back of the Bible are designed to guide the student of Gods Word into a greater understanding of their beliefs about God and their purpose upon this earth.
This Bible is jam packed with all the necessary tools to expand and grow the faith of any teen guy blessed to have the privilege to turn its pages, thus it is a recommended purchase.
Here is a study bible which is stated to be aimed at teenage boys. With that in mind, I can say I believe they have done a great job. This bible is very contemporary in it design and quite attractive in its presentation. It is loaded with features and with great study features.
From the publisher, here is a list of those features:
Complete text of the NIV bible
12 full-color pages of life-impacting ideas like "50 Passages that Show God is a Revolution God"
In-depth book introductions
"Battlelines" which answer tough questions that teens have and present the Bible's perspective on spiritual growth.
Over 200 "Be the Change" articles which challenge teen guys to discover God's truth.
100 "God Calling" notes point to verses to help find God's plan for you life
100 "Live the Revolution" notes show how to change your life and revolutionize your impact on others.
Each of the features is thought provoking and well developed. I believe this study bible would be great for any young man you might be looking to buy a bible. The articles are slanted toward males, so I wouldn't recommend it for young females, but there would be applicable information if you chose to give it to a young woman.
I received a copy of this bible for free from BookLook Bloggers for a review. The review was not required to be positive and all thought are my own.
I lead a Jr. High boys Bible study. The boys strongly recommend this Bible to new members of our group. It must be the extra features/articles that bring the Bible into their world. What I do know is that most of the guys with this Bible actually read it and highlight text as they go. The pricing at Christianbook.com makes it more affordable than the book store price.
