NIV Bible for Teen Girls

I received for review,  the "NIV Bible for Teen Girls".
The colours are very appealing as are the drawings on the pages. The one complaint from my girls, ages 10 and 13, is that they wished more of the real carried over inside than the pink.

Inside is ofcourse the NIV translation, which is the blend of NIV and TNIV (see previous posts on NIV translations)

The editors of this volume did a great job at "character profiles" and highlighting verses that are not the usual run of the mill, typical verses.

Some one will most likely complain (especially if they are over 40) about one of the devotionals using the term "screw up". This was a bit of a risk on the side of the editors, to keep devotional content relative and to reach mainstream kids one can assume is the reasoning. My mother would have freaked out. I was surprised, but not offended. But just so you know, it is on there.

Over all this is a good teen study bible. It also has a nice concordance and topical study guide. The devotional material is well done, and I believe that it will engage it's audience quite well.
