Teens or Tweens would be the perfect person to give this book to!
This topical book is full of catchy pictures and simple explanation of scripture dealing with 62 different topics that teens and tweens face. It's in alphabetical order and has a handy index so anyone can look something up quickly. With it's appealing format it's easy to sit down to look up one thing and end up reading several pages!
I appreciate that the Bible passages are written out in the book and explained in simple terms that are easy to understand. It's a great book for teens and tweens to use on their own to look up issues they face or to help them dig into God's Word.
As a youth leader, I think this book is a great gift idea for newly saved teens or those seeking to understand more. The only thing I didn't like so much was that all the scripture is from the NLT, but since it's a resources and not a complete Bible, I think it could be of use to making things easy to understand for this younger age range.
Overall, it's like the names says, a great way to get kids asking: What Did Jesus Say?
Kids, much like adults, are looking for answers and guidance about the issues they face every day. What Did Jesus Say? is an easy-to-use topical Bible that combines the words Jesus said about 62 subjects. Each topic is explained before the verses, and the words of Jesus are summed up after the verses to help youth understand what they’ve read. Some of the topics include anger, jealousy, humility, love, fear, hate, grief, and worry. This book is a natural bridge between colorful story Bibles for children and full-text Bibles for teens and adults. It is perfect for tweens—kids “in between” these ages. The one-color graphics relate to the subject and make reading the Bible text easier and more interesting for this age group.
