Developed by Nick Page with contributions from real young people as well as leading Christian organisations like Soul Survivor, Tear Fund and Care, this is the only youth Bible you’ll ever need…
A unique combination of the plain and straightforward Contemporary English Version Bible, plus masses of additional notes and information specifically aimed at helping young people today understand the Bible and what it means for them.
With The Tabloid Bible’s scurrilous retellings and The Bible Book’s tube maps, Nick Page is now firmly established as an expert at helping people see the Bible in a new way. A regular writer for Youthwork magazine (read by most of the 7000 paid Christian youthworkers in the UK), he has the contacts and the understanding to create a truly unique resource for all young people.
With contributions from some leading Christian organisations like Tearfund, Soul Survivor, Care, Exalt, Hope UK, Discovery and Churches’ Criminal Justice Forum, as well as thoughts on Bible passages written by real young people, this book has it all.
Special sections throughout the Bible include
Viewpoints – real young people’s thoughts about Bible passages
Real life – examinations of how biblical principles can be worked out in the real world, with contributions from leading organisations in their fields
Holy history – explanations of what’s going on in the Bible, cross-referenced back and forward
The Guide – specially written introductions to each Bible book, with key readings, timeline and ‘snapshots’ of the most important points
Life files – the most important facts about the Bible’s heroes, from Abraham to King David, John the Baptist to Paul
Big ideas – key themes and concepts demystified
Helpfile – down-to-earth discussion of modern-day issues in the light of relevant Bible passages
Footsteps – mini reading plans to take you further
Maps – individually drawn maps of major journeys and areas, appearing at the relevant place in the Bible

Combining all Nick Page’s writing skills with the invaluable input of numerous Christian organisations, from now on this is the only Youth Bible you’ll ever need.
