Discover Jesus In Every Book of the Bible Jesus isn't just found in the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. His presence can be felt throughout the whole Bible, even in Genesis. The Jesus Bible contains the complete New International Version (NIV) with daily study helps that point to Jesus and show how he fulfilled the prophecies for the Messiah found in the Old Testament. A perfect way to see the overarching narrative of the Bible, The Jesus Bible includes these features: Presentation page for personalization and gift giving Book introductions explain where Jesus appears in each book of the Bible 365 devotions revolve around the 'sightings' of Jesus in the Old Testament and his life and teachings in the New Testament Application notes to help apply Jesus' teachings to real life today Hundreds of clues highlight the promises/prophesies made about Jesus in the Old Testament and the fulfillments in the New Testament Index of the Old Testament prophecies fulfilled in Christ List of Jesus' miracles and parables Timeline of Jesus' life Lineage of Jesus Concordance to help find key topics, people, and events in the Bible Words of Christ in red.

My take on this Bible:
If your looking for a Bible for your tween or teen then The Jesus Bible just might be what you'r looking for. The NIV version is easy to read and understand but it's the many features that makes it a stand out Bible. First the hardback cover is sturdy  which will allow it to stand up to continued use. I love that there is a presentation page included making it a wonderful Bible for gift giving. One of the first features I noticed was the simplified family tree of Jesus, what a wonderful way for youngsters to trace the lineage of our blessed Savior. There is also a time line of Jesus' life, which is quite interesting. There are introductions at the beginning of each book of the Bible, daily devotions with an index in the back which allows the user to check off the devotions as they do them. Live Like Jesus application notes are peppered through out the text help you apply his teachings to the users life. Hints of the Savior/ Jesus Revealed highlight promises and prophecy, there is an index at the back of the Bible making it easy to find these promises and prophecies. Jesus through out the Bible are special  four color pages that highlight Jesus and his life. A nice concordance and several maps round out the features of The Jesus Bible.  These handy features will allow the user to really understand what they are reading by providing insight. Overall The Jesus Bible feels like an adult Bible that is geared toward youth, which will make it great for teens and tweens. Perfect for gift giving, an invaluable tool that will build a solid spiritual foundation for the user.

A complimentary copy of this Bible was provided for review.
