Developing a good habit of daily Scripture reading and personal devotional study comes easy with the Young Women of Faith Bible, NIV. Designed for girls ages 8 and up, the revised edition of this Bible is easy to understand and provides age-appropriate features to encourage independent reading. The Young Women of Faith Bible, NIV, is also linked to the Women of Faith Study Bible so that girls can have the opportunity to explore the Scriptures alongside their mothers (or other influential female role models in their lives), forging a strong bond in faith.
Former youth pastor and high school teacher Susie Shellenberger, general editor of the Young Women of Faith Bible, NIV, knows the importance of having age-appropriate resources for the spiritual development of young women. As editor of Sisterhood Magazine, formerly Susie, Shellenberger connects with her young readers’ interests and desires for personal spiritual growth.
The Young Women of Faith Bible, NIV, is geared towards encouraging girls to set aside regular time for Scripture reading and offers several exciting features designed to engage and inspire readers.
- The complete text of the New International Version (NIV), a translation that is easy to read and understand
- Weekly Bible studies apply biblical truths to life
- Side notes address difficult passages and offer historical and cultural insights
- Journal entries capture other girls' experiences or struggles along with providing space for you to record your own
- “I Believe” statements of faith and foundational beliefs
- “Memory Challenges” are verses worth remembering
- “If I Were There . . .” include Bible stories that place you in the Bible character's situation
The supplemental features help girls reflect on the stories and verses they read while also giving them a place to record personal thoughts, feelings and prayers. The Young Women of Faith Bible, NIV, is available in both Hardcover ($29.99) and soft Raspberry/Clementine Italian Duo-tone binding ($44.99). Both editions are available in March.
This is a very nice Bible for your young females. The Bible shouts spring time so get your copy today and start enjoying spring! I enjoy reading the NIV translation to my daughter and even though she is not old enough to read this on her own yet we have enjoyed the features in the Bible. We have been having fun with the "I Believe" sections that help build statements of faith and foundational beliefs, perfect for the younger girls.
Another feature that I enjoy is the book introductions for each chapter. It helps me teach my daughter the basic facts such as: who wrote it, where it took place, why it took place, and a list of favorite Bible stories and teachings that can be found in the book.
I hope you will consider this book if you are out searching for the perfect one for tween and teen girls.
