The Life is a compelling way for teens to discover who Jesus is and why it matters. Through it, you will get to know Jesus and what it means to follow him. The Life includes 112 full-color pages with John, Acts 1:1–11:26, James, 1 John, five excerpts from Luke, and dozens of images, with tweetable quotes about who Jesus really is. The Life is designed to immerse students in the story of Jesus. It features the clear and accessible New Living Translation, all in a fun and attractive magazine-style design you can easily throw in your backpack. Plus, get free access to downloadable images, featuring content in the Bible, to share with your friends.
The Life was collaboratively developed in partnership with Youth for Christ, whose mission is to bring the message of Jesus to young people across the world. Youth for Christ has more than 160 chapters impacting thousands of communities.
The New Living Translation breathes life into even the most difficult-to-understand Bible passages, but even more powerful are stories of how people’s lives are changing as the words speak directly to their hearts.

Dianna A.South CarolinaAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great Resource for Youth Ministry.August 26, 2014Dianna A.South CarolinaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4This is a great resource for youth and youth ministry. The small size of this Biblezine makes it easy to carry. This is not a complete Bible it is the Book of John with excerpts from Luke, Acts, James, etc. It really introduces teens to the life of Jesus and who he is. The format is colorful and attractive. Its set up like a mini magazine. In the back it walks you through the salvation process. It shows you how your story and Gods story can be intertwined. As a witnessing tool I totally believe this is an awesome resource.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion from Tyndale.
J4Life53 Stars Out Of 5A Little DisappointingAugust 26, 2014J4Life5Quality: 3Value: 5Meets Expectations: 2I have mixed feelings about this book. I wanted to be really excited about this book that is geared toward teens. I am a big fan of the New Living Translation because the language is easy to understand and absorb. I really liked that aspect of the book. I think the size and the graphics are great for the target audience. The images are visually compelling and the cover makes a bold statement.
However, there were a few things that I didn't particularly care for about the book. I know the publishers wanted intending for it to have a magazine-like feel, so they had the stories skip over pages and inserted different stories in between the pages in a typical magazine format. Unfortunately, the pages themselves were formatted more like a regular book, so I didn't quite appreciate the effort.
Ultimately, what I liked the least about this book is that it reminded me of the brochures and booklets that some religious groups pass out as they canvass the neighborhoods on Saturday mornings. For me, I felt that the similarity to some of those materials cheapened the wonderful Gospel that is included in the pages of this book.
This might be a good way to introduce teens to Jesus and the story of his life, but I think there are other books out there that are better.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
DanniAge: 25-34Gender: female2 Stars Out Of 5The saving grace is the Savior.August 20, 2014DanniAge: 25-34Gender: femaleI know how can you give a book that has parts of the Gospel and was put out by Youth for Christ a not so favorable review. Maybe I am getting old but I couldn't wrap my head around parts of this book. Granted it had parts of the Gospel which was its only saving grace.
The biggest issue I had was some of the commentary. While some of it was good at attempting to explain the parts of the Gospel; other parts were not clear at all.
I guess this is suppose to be a teaser to the Full Three Story Bible. If that is like this I am worried. It is splashed full of pictures to make the Gospels more exciting and inviting for the younger crowd. My daughter who is a pre-teen even questioned some of the commentary. Can't we just let the Gospels be life changing on their own?
