There is no question that we live in some unprecedented times. The world has undergone quite a challenge with the Covid-19 pandemic and everyone is under stress. Our kids are feeling stress and anxiety too. For example, they once used to be able to attend school “in-person” and now have been attending school online and confined to their homes. This alone can be very detrimental to them as they cannot “see” their friends like they used to. Anxiety levels have sky-rocketed over the last year and many people are truly turning to the Holy Bible and seeking the Lord. I say that these people are very wise in doing so as Jesus Christ is truly our only and blessed hope! If you do not already have a Bible for your teenager, please take a look below as I have reviewed and posted a link for the New International Version (NIV) Teen Study Bible that is suited perfectly for teenaged kids. A Holy Bible for your teen! Please prayerfully consider getting one today for a teen you know. See below.
Why a Bible for your teenager?
There are thousands of young people all over the world who have difficulty in life. Many of these teens are committing suicide and many are turning to drugs and alcohol thinking these things will give them an escape. But the truth is, neither suicide nor drugs and/or alcohol are going to help them. Those things lead to death and eternal separation from God.
There are kids who may not be as distraught as noted above but are battling some form of depression, anxiety or just feeling insecure. The teenage years are difficult for many reasons and sometimes it’s just the “hormones” that get the best of them.
Whatever the case, there is a common denominator that all kids have and that is the need to know the Lord. Life is not easy for anyone, it has its ups and it has its downs. The only way we can truly deal with whatever life hands us is to know the Lord and be grounded in His Word.
Let’s help our kids find true peace in the Lord of Heaven who loves them with incredible love! Let’s give them the greatest tool in the world – God’s Word.
The teen study Bible speaks to these kids in a language that they understand and can relate to.
There are sections in there that teach and help them apply God’s word to their everyday lives.
Kids need a true source of peace and security and they will only find it in the word of God. There are many other solutions, you may say, but I tell you the truth that any solution other than Jesus Christ and His Word will only be temporary.
God’s solutions to our problems will last for eternity!
Jesus said in John 14:27 “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
I have searched for Bibles that would be a fit for teenage kids and found the Teen Study Bible (NIV version) to be well suited for them. I have links below for these Bibles in soft, imitation leather in colors of brown, pink, and blue. They are very reasonably priced and offer a high-value content of helpful teachings for teens.

The Bible will show them the path that leads to “life.” The scriptures will tell them that they are “loved” by a wonderful Father who gave His very life for them and who will never leave them or forsake them. Hebrews 13:5 states “Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”
Nothing can separate us from the love of God. See what the word of the Lord says here:
Romans 8: 38, 39 states “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
In John 14:21 Jesus said “Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.”
Reading God’s Word brings great peace, strength, and security to your life and to all who read His Word.
Proverbs 2: 1-8 speaks about learning God’s word and seeking Him as you were searching for precious metals such as silver or gold. When you do, you will be guarded by the Lord and are promised success. Read it here:
“My son, if you accept my words
and store up my commands within you,
2 turning your ear to wisdom
and applying your heart to understanding—
3 indeed, if you call out for insight
and cry aloud for understanding,
4 and if you look for it as for silver
and search for it as for hidden treasure,
5 then you will understand the fear of the Lord
and find the knowledge of God.
6 For the Lord gives wisdom;
from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
7 He holds success in store for the upright,
he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless,
8 for he guards the course of the just
and protects the way of his faithful ones.
Then the next verses of 9 – 11 (Proverbs chapter 2) state: “Then you will understand what is right and just
and fair—every good path.
10 For wisdom will enter your heart,
and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.
11 Discretion will protect you,
and understanding will guard you.”
What a wonderful passage to share with your teenage son or daughter!
The Lord will guide your path
Proverbs 3:5-6 states: “5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit (acknowledge) to him,
and he will make your paths straight (guide your path).
This is a great one to memorize for your teen and you as well! Is your son or daughter confused about something like choosing a career path? Or, maybe there is a difficult situation and a decision needs to be made? Whatever the case may be, read this verse over and over and take your concerns to the Lord in prayer – He is listening and He will answer!
The Teen Study Bible (NIV) has Q & A’s for additional learning
The reason I like this Bible is that it contains sections with biblical advice about common stressors that young people may face. These sections also offer Bible advice about dealing with depression, problems with friends, etc.
Some more features are:
- Book introductions before each book of the Bible giving an overview.
- It has Q & A’s which will test your knowledge of the Bible.

My final thoughts
In the days in which we are living, it is of utmost importance we read and help our children read the Holy Bible for it has the answers and comforts we seek. The Lord has provided us with His Word to guide us through this life. We must seek Him with our whole heart and when we do, we will find him.
Jeremiah 29:11-13 says “11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
I pray you and yours seek the Lord with all your heart!
