I have seen [this Bible] be highly effective in encouraging individuals to engage with scripture. This Bible has become our gift to all young people who join our youth ministry as we see it as an important tool in our aim to effectively equip young people to engage with the word of God.
The Soul Survivor Festivals draw a staggering 30,000 young people each summer to worship, learn and pray with their peers. Now, they have their very own Bible to accompany them. The scripture is the New International Version, and the extras explain some of the difficult passages and terms, including maps of the holy regions and even a short description of what the Bible is. The notes set throughout the books cover issues that matter to young people, including why God allows suffering, sexuality and terrorism.
The best parts are the 220 study sessions found throughout covering real issues encountered by todays' Christian. Although it is aimed at young people I would recommend this version to people of any age.
