Young Women of Faith Bible

There are so many different types and versions of Bibles available out there, so it's hard to know which one is the right pick for you. This week, I had the privilege of reviewing the "Young Women of Faith Bible" with devotionals by Susie Shellenberger. You may remember her as the editor of Brio magazine! She is also the author of many books including "Girl Talk with God" or more recently "The Smart Girl's Guide to God, Guys and the Galaxy" which is set to release on April 1st!

I really enjoyed this pre-teen Bible for many different reasons! It's aimed at girls ages 8 on up, which is perfect for my oldest daughter. She was so very excited when I presented her with it! She has had numerous Bibles in the past, but to her this Bible had a little bit more of a grown up feel to it. The inside is full of bright pink flowers, butterflies and a fun font. Throughout the Bible verses, there are "Journal" entries which are usually a sample prayer to God or a reflection time to think about what was just read. There are also small sections entitled "If I were There..." which gives an opportunity to think about the Bible story and to imagine that readers were actually a part of the story.

The author has also made the beginning of the Bible chapters and interesting experience! Each chapter begins with a series of questions after the name of the Chapter is listed. Examples of the questions are
Who wrote this book?
Why was this book written?
What happens in this book?
What do we learn about God in this book?
Who is important in this book?
When did this happen?
What are some of the stories in this book?

Also in the back of the book is the appendix of course, and then a measurement chart which explains the difference between measurements quoted in the Bible and the measurements we use now.

I found this Bible to be excellent and will not hesitate to recommend it to anyone I know with pre-teen girls! I rate it as 5 stars.
