Back in my pre-married days, way back even pre-seminary days, I started out in ministry doing youth ministry. A few people in St. Augustine believed in me, and let me love on teenagers through the ministry of Young Life, and the local church, Anastasia Baptist. I’m grateful for those people in my life who believed in the gifts and heart that God had given me.
I still, even 2+ decades later, still love teenagers and discipling them – helping them pour into relationships, Jesus, and the Word.
The Color Code Bible (in NKJV) is a helpful new Bible perfect for young teenagers (or even pre-teens) with a fun way for them to start learning how to study the Bible on their own. A neat and very helpful way to get teenagers to study the Bible is by introducing them to topical studies. This Bible is helpful in that by giving them colors on certain topics of the Bible, like God, Jesus, sin, praise, assurance of heaven and hope, etc.
If you are wanting a new Bible to give to your son or daughter (or niece, nephew, grandchild), this would make a great gift. And why not study along with them – that may spur them on to study the Bible for themselves even more.
