My take on this Bible:
I have been collecting Bibles for quite some time,and I am always looking for a new Bible to recommend, especially to teens. Well with the Rock Solid Faith Study Bible there is plenty that makes this Bible stand out for me. It's a Bible created especially for teens to help them grow their faith and find hope for the future. Because it's a NIV Bible it is written in easy to understand language , and I found it to be filled with several exciting features that provides a unique study help that will help teens get rooted in God's promises and unwavering love.
Here are a few examples of some of the features that are included in this Bible.
1.Book Outline and introduction~ which is a brief outline at the beginning of each book of the Bible,along with a brief introduction to the particular book of the Bible.
2.Rock Solid Truths which examines Christian beliefs and explorations of other religions.
3.Rock Solid Promises calls out what is (and is not) promised in the Bible.
4.Rock Solid Principles applies the Bible to relationships, sex, money and more.
5.Rock Solid Plans: Explores God's plan in daily life.
6. Unshaken People: Provides scriptural examples of overcoming challenges.
7. Unshaken God: Points out God's unyielding attributes.
As well as these features the user will also find reading plans,that are beneficial to a new Bible reader who needs a little guidance,as well as plans that allow the user to read through the entire Bible in either one or two years. In addition to this also included are topical indexes, a concordance and eight pages of color maps.
For me one of the favorite features of this Teen Bible happened to be the concordance, I found it quite useful and pretty complete. I also enjoyed reading the little stories provided in the Rock Solid Principals. The only negative thing I could possibly say about this Bible is that the outside cover isn't overly appealing, it's a drab brown that I feel would appeal much more to boys rather than girls.
Overall, I found this Bible easy to navigate and use. I think it would make a great gift for a teen whether they are a new christian or are just looking for an in depth study geared toward there age group. Recommended!
