The Girls Life Application Study Bible is a great Bible for pre-teen and teenage girls. The cover has a leathery feel and is a purple with the imprint of a pink butterfly and flowers. It is quiet feminine in its appeal. My wife and daughter (4 years old) were both very interested in flipping through the Bible once it arrived in the mail. The editors and artists who worked on this Bible have certainly done a great job of getting the reader from the cover into the pages of Scripture.
The Bible is full of great insights and articles that catch readers on a surface level and draw them into the text of scripture for an answer. (Can I just say that it is refreshing to finally see a publisher put out a Bible that challenges teen and preteen girls to see what the Scripture says!). Included all throughout the text are girl-specific applications. The New Living Translation is a decent translation to read (especially for girls who are in the preteen age range).
I would highly recommend this Bible to teen and preteen girls who are wanting to grow in their relationship with God. This is also a great Bible to hand to a girl who is a new believer or someone who is otherwise unfamiliar with the scriptures. It is apparent that the Bible was designed not only to have a feminine appeal, but to be very user friendly as well.
The retail price is $29.97 (Imitation Leather) and is worth every penny. It is also available at places like Amazon.com for $19.78. I give it 5 Stars and would give it more. It truly is a great Bible for teen and Pre-teen girls.
One Note: Amazon has it listed as Girls Life Application Study Bible NLT (Kid’s Life Application Bible: Nltse), it is not really a kids Bible, the publishers recommend it for girls age 11 and up (and I would heartily agree with that recommendation).
