Ignite: The Bible for Teens

"Ignite: The Bible for Teens" is a New King James Version translation Bible designed to help teens face their everyday struggles through an understanding of God's grace, wisdom, and strength. What I like about this particular Bible is the endless supply of tidbits, advice, and insight that they put on each page. This Bible offers SO many tools to help teens make Godly decisions in their lives on a daily basis that I was literally blown away. 

This Bible focuses in on issues that are relevant to high school age children, such as obedience, hearing God's voice, guilt, anger, and prayer in a way that is encouraging and helpful. Also included in this Bible are an introduction page to each chapter, with important information telling the "who", "what", "when", "where" and "why" of that particular chapter of the Bible.

I was thoroughly impressed with this particular Bible, and how well I felt it reaches its target audience. By adding all the study tools, and focusing on the issues at hand for today's teens, it truly becomes a valuable tool as teens attempt to navigate their way through life in a way that God desires. Awesome.

Spirit-Filled Life Bible (NLT)

The Spirit-Filled Life Bible (NLT) is one of my favorite versions of the Bible,  particularly for Bible study. I think that this Bible truly offers some fantastic supplemental tools for helping me to easily understand what I am reading. Each page of this Bible offers a wealth of knowledge through extensive footnotes, definitions of key words, connections between the Biblical message and daily life, maps, and a summary of the truths found in each chapter, as well as an in-depth summary of each chapter.

This version of The Spirit-Filled Life Bible is the New Living Translation, which I love because it is written in a more modern style, and much easier to understand. I was concerned that the modern translation would lose some of the meaning of words from the other versions, but I found this one to be great. I especially liked the way that certain words that are used frequently are highlighted throughout the text, and defined/explained in a deeper way. I thought this really helped focus on the Biblical definitions of words, as well as understand the history/usage of the word better.

I thought this Bible was outstanding. I loved all the extra study tools, as well as the NLT translation. I found that  this Bible really helped me gain a better, deeper understanding of what the Bible is saying to me. I would highly recommend this Bible to anyone - it is absolutely fantastic.
