aka The Frazzled Mom
Explore what it means to live a revolutionary life for God with the help of the NIV Revolution Bible. Packed with challenging insights, smart advice, and open discussion about today’s contemporary cultural issues, this best-selling Bible empowers young men ages 13-18 to ask big questions, discover fresh perspectives and impact others while living their faith on the edge.
Teens will discover how to impact a broken and diverse world with fresh perspectives on a variety of faith-related issues. Their life, their relationships, their community: it’s all a big deal, and it takes a big, God-filled heart to make a difference. A revolution of the heart isn’t about how popular or tough they are. It’s about what God can do in them and through them. This newly updated edition uses the accurate, readable, and clear NIV translation and includes features strategically designed to empower teen guys in their quest for truth.
This is a study Bible geared specifically for guys. It says teen guys, but I think it could include preteen up through young adult. The bible includes the following special features:
This version is NIV, New International Version. It’s one of the more standard versions used that’s fairly easy to read and understand.
I always appreciate a Bible that’s hardcover. This one is hardbound and also includes a dust jacket. As with other Bibles I’ve reviewed, this one is easy to navigate, with a table of contents at the beginning and subject index at the end. Each book of the Bible is separated by a title page. And throughout the Bible the pages include the special content listed above, that gives the eye a place to rest and the mind some food for thought while reading. I’ve always wondered if, while reading, how much will we retain? Having the reinforcement of “be the change”, “live the revolution” or “God calling” helps to sink in the point. The study tools are helpful and applicable to issues boys may face today. This Bible is durable and should, with a good carrier, hold up for most boys. No doubt they’ll ditch the dust jacket, but really that isn’t necessary. For me, hardcover is the most important physical aspect of the binding. I like the print, though it does seem a bit small and thin. It’s not the font I’d have gone with, but it works. I’d definitely recommend this Bible to family and friends with boys heading into middle school, high school and college.
