NIV Bible for Teen Guys - A Review

A Review

A devotional Bible for Teen guys, this Bible contains a number of tools and helps that will encourage the teen guy. For the young teen it will be a suitable Bible to use for three or four years; for the older teen it might be more suitable for a single year as he works through the devotionals and character studies.

A number of helps are included:

  • A year's worth of devotional studies
  • Character profiles of key men in scripture
  • Brief book introductions for each book of the Bible
  • Key Bible promises worth remembering are highlighted

Of these, the last seems to be the least useful, as the highlights a very light yellow, difficult to see except in the very brightest light. The devotionals are a mix of theology, exegesis, and practical thoughts. Some end in thoughtful questions, others with hints about life; but all of those I read were of value.

Designed to parallel the similarly designed NIV Bible For Teen Girls, first introduced in August 2015, this current book is being introduced just in time for Christmas 2016 giving. It would be an appropriate gift for parents or grandparents to consider for holiday giving.

This review is based on a free copy provided by the publisher for the purpose of creating this review.  The opinions expressed are my own.
