If you are looking for a Bible for the teen in your life, then look no further than the NIV Rock Solid Study Bible! This Bible is honestly one that I would consider using now myself, despite the fact I am well past my teen years, because not only does it feature my favourite version of the Bible, the New International Version (one I find to be accessible and easy to understand), but it is accompanied by some truly awesome features. My favourite is the "Rock Solid Promises" that are scattered like treasures throughout the pages, drawing the readers eye to some truly powerful promises. I also like the "Rock Solid Principles", containing modern day situations and examples that illustrate what the passage is talking about. I also found that the Concordance at the back of the Bible is truly comprehensive and helpful, and sure to help your teen dig deeper into the Word.  These features, along with many more useful additions, will aid your teen in building their faith and understanding of the Bible.

The actual design of the Bible is also excellent, featuring a hard-cover version that is well-bound, with a generic cover sure to appeal to teens of either gender.

In sum, this is a fantastic version of the Bible for youth, and should be at the top of your list in considering a teen-themed Bible. 5 out of 5 stars.
