To address these important issues and provide traction for their beliefs and promises for their futures, Zondervan has teamed up with a variety of well-known scholars and included extensive resources to create the Rock Solid Faith Study Bible for Teens. This innovative edition of the New International Version helps young readers, ages 13-16, face their questions head on and build a steadfast foundation for their faith. With the Rock Solid Bible, teens discover constant and concrete truths rooted in the unchanging love, guidance, and promises of God.
This all-new Bible features the complete NIV text, as well as other insightful and informative inserts such as:
- Truths that examine Christian beliefs and explorations of other religions;
- Principles that apply the Bible to relationships, sex, money, and more;
- Promises that call out what is (and is not) promised in the Scriptures;
- Plans that explore God’s plan for daily life;
- People that provide scriptural examples of overcoming challenges; and
- Unshaken God that points out God’s amazing and unyielding attributes.
In addition, readers will find easy to understand apologetics, reading plans, hundreds of call-outs, eight pages of full-color maps, Bible book introductions, and many other insightful features to help teens grapple with big questions about the world, their futures, and their faith.

The New International Version has been my favourite Bible translation for many years, and I was excited to see this brand new Bible published with teens in mind. I love the sturdy hardcover format, and I am sure it will be a hit with my grandson, just as soon as I am finished with it.
The layout seems quite condensed, and there are minimal margin areas for notes, but it still has 1650+ pages in total. The special features including truths, principles and promises - are enlightening and definitely geared towards teens. These are thought provoking and challenging, and likely can be enjoyed by all ages.
Zondervan has once again come up with a age-specific treasure that should appeal to teens and young adults. Looking back to my own teen years, the Bible that I got in my early high school days is still one of my most valued treasures. Many years from now, I believe many will say the same about this Bible.
I highly recommend the Rock Solid Faith Study Bible for Teens!
