Why My Daughter Uses the NIV Bible for Teen Girls
My almost-teen daughter is a reader. She is also learning to really study the Bible. She has two Bibles that she uses daily. The first helps her to defend her faith and to learn what the Bible says about core issues, and the second helps her understand how to apply the Scriptures to her life. This second one is the NIV Bible for Teen Girls, and there are several reasons why she likes it so much (and some reasons why I do too!):
It’s pretty. This was the first reason she gave me. It seems superficial, but aesthetics are important to girls, and especially pre-teens and teens! Zondervan did a great job with the design of this Bible. It’s green with pink as the contrasting text and design colors and is decorated with drawings that remind me of the popular adult coloring book designs. It’s a very attractive Bible.
It has great character profiles. My daughter really likes the character profiles of the women in the Bible. She enjoys knowing the meaning of each woman’s name as well as what made them special and where to find each one’s story.
The devotionals are “really good.” My daughter is very impressed with the daily readings scattered throughout the Bible. She didn’t recognize any of the authors except Bethany Hamilton, but she enjoys how they explain sections of the Bible and show her how the Word applies to her life and the situations she faces.
It’s NIV. My daughter appreciates Bible translations that make the Word easy to read and understand, and the NIV certainly meets that need.
The book introductions are helpful. This is one of my reasons. The introductions to each book of the Bible help teens understand when the events in the book took place, the primary people involved in those events, and a summary of the main events. It’s all written in ways that are easy to read and understand.
There’s a decent concordance at the end. So many Bibles for students don’t have a concordance, and this is something that my daughter wanted to have and learn how to use. While not comprehensive, there’s a pretty good start here.
Some of God’s promises are highlighted. Throughout the Bible, you find verses highlighted in pink. They bring some of God’s most precious promises to her attention.
