But with the help of the NIV ONCE-A-DAY BIBLE FOR TEENS (Zondervan; October 2012; $19.99), adolescents will learn to center their lives and reconnect with what matters most – their relationship with God, and connecting with him by reading from his Word. This easy to use daily reading Bible is a convenient and inspirational way to expand a teen’s understanding of Scripture, deepen their faith, and provide encouragement for an entire year.

NIV ONCE-A-DAY BIBLE FOR TEENS organizes the New International Version Bible, the world’s most popular modern English Bible, into 365 readings. Each Scripture reading includes verses from both the Old and New Testaments as well as a portion from either Psalms or Proverbs, along with a summary to help teens reflect and apply the Bible passages to their lives.

And to further help teens keep the Word close to their hearts, the ONCE-A-DAY DEVOTIONAL FOR TEENS (Zondervan; $14.99; October 2012) offers readers the opportunity to reflect on just enough Scripture and analysis to keep them inspired as they face life’s challenges.
