Our research found a concern among youth leaders and clergy that some Youth Bibles play too heavily on 'case studies' and other supplementary material that distract young readers from the Bile text itself. Effectively they are reading a modern-day writer’s interpretation and application of the Bible, rather than engaging with the Scriptures and drawing conclusions for themselves
The TNIV Youth Bible is similarly packed with fascinating text boxes (over 600 in fact!). But they do not attempt to summarise or interpret the Bible – instead, every box is linked to a verse designed to draw the reader’s eyes to the Scriptures themselves: explaining, illuminating, contextualising, but never replacing God’s Word. Teens will be given help in understanding what they read but encouraged to make their own decisions on how it applies to their life.
The text boxes come in four types – In Other Words, People and Places, Making Connections and Sign of the Times – and are written by one of Britain’s most respected youth workers. Jenny Baker served for Youth for Christ for a decade and has written innovative youthwork resource material for leading organisations such as Christian Aid, Spring Harvest and Youthwork magazine.
The International Bible Society (IBS) commissioned both the NIV and TNIV. Its mission is to faithfully translate, publish and reach out with God's Word to people around the world. The Committee on Bible Translation (CBT) produced both the NIV and TNIV. It is an independent body of the most renowned English-speaking biblical linguists and scholars in the world.
