- Review by Kristin
But what makes this Bible any different from any of the other masses of study Bibles out there? The language is slightly easier than I've found in an adult Bible. In order to address some of the angst of the hormonal teenage years, there are the "Dear Jordan" advice letters that address modern day issues that teenagers face. At the same time, there are the To The Point paragraphs that give Biblical advice on everyday issues such as problems with parents, peers and self-image.
At the end of the Bible are 8 pages of color maps that highlight the different areas during the history of the Bible.
Overall, I found this to be a very informative, and hopefully, helpful to teenagers as they go through what is some of their most difficult years of their lives. (Posted on 7/5/14)
