Teenagers are looking for something solid upon which to build their lives. Even if they have a Bible, they may not know where to find the word from God they need.
The latest Bible for youth, the Rock Solid Faith Study Bible, was developed to help teens find the truth they need. Along with the NIV text are a number of features designed specifically for teens. They were designed to help teens grow in their faith and find hope for the future.
There is an introduction to each book in the Bible. There are sidebars that contain “rock solid” truths found in the adjacent passage. These may be Christian beliefs as well as explorations of what other religions hold. Rock solid promises in the Bible (and what is not promised) are also noted.
There are also sections that highlight rock solid principles from the Bible. These principles are applied to relationships, sex, money, and much more. There are rock solid plans, helping teens to understand God's plans for life.
There are also character studies, unshaken people in the Bible who are examples of overcoming challenges. The attributes of God are also pointed out.
At the back of the Bible are a table of weights and measures, a reading plan, indexes of rock solid truths, promises, principles, plans, unshaken people, and attributes of God. There is a hundred page concordance and eight pages of maps.
This is a great Bible for teens, aged 13-16, and the questions, emotions, and circumstances they deal with every day. The indexes are really helpful as a teen can look up the notes on a specific issue. The NIV text is very readable for teens too. Young readers will certainly find this Bible helpful for building and defending their faith. This would be a great gift for any teen as the school year begins.
