Amazon.com Review

The Extreme Teen Bible dares teens to crack open its pages and live up to the cutting-edge standard found inside. This New King James translation (thoroughly explained in teen-friendly language) is clad in funky purple print and snowboard-type logos, appealing to the thrill seeker by promising a life of "no fears, no regrets, just a future with a promise." Generous introductions, full-page profiles of faith-filled biblical characters, and a quick reference index covering subjects from abortion to worship guide the young reader into a more "extreme" relationship with God. "What's It Mean?" sidebars appear on almost every page, answering tough questions, pointing out God's promises, and directing teens into the will of God for their lives. By portraying Christ as the "truest revolutionary of all time," the Bible becomes a survival guide to the world that teens live in. The editors assert that "It's all here--truth, inspiration, bottom-line actual reality." The only questions left is, "Are you up for the challenge?" --Jill Heatherly --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

My wife and I minister to the young male and female inmates at a local Youth Detention Center (YDC). These kids are in for everything from armed robbery to sex crimes. So, needless to say, a very different type of witnessing tool was necessary for this ministry.

I had read and researched a lot of Bibles, and I finally settled on this one as my main witnessing tool. Here is why:

While ministering to these kids, I have found that these youngsters truly ARE the visual generation, and NOTHING turns them off faster than trying to read (and DECIPHER) a standard 2-column or 4-column dull-looking, boring-looking, black-on-white print Bible.

BUT, with this Bible, the colors and the pictures and the generally edgy feel of the book as a whole really catches their eyes and makes them WANT to dig in and start reading. Every Bible on this earth is of no value if you cannot get them to OPEN it and READ it!

Having worked with these youth, I have found that most of them may be 15 - 16 years old, but they read at 11 - 12 year old level! For this reason, I always stress to the kids that, while this Bible is written to the younger mind, it does NOT talk DOWN to them in any way shape, or form! This, too, is critical in ministering to them, as they will reject anything that smacks of being too authoritarian to them. It is that very rebellion against any kind of authority that landed them in the YDC in the first place!

Because of this book, we have not only had the young inmates come to Christ, but we have also had members of the YDC STAFF come to Christ as well! What a Blessing this has been!

For all these reasons, I cannot recommend this book highly enough!

At first, I was not sure if I was Extreme enough to understand this Extreme Teen Bible. I questioned my Extremeness and wondered if Jesus would accept someone as un-Extreme as myself. However, after reading the Extreme Bible I can say that only through Jesus can true Extreme-ness be reached, and that through Jesus even the least Extreme can find the true light of Extremeness and truly excellent righteousness! Now, I kick it with God all the time Forget, Snoop Dogg; Jesus (or Master J as I call him, we tight) truly is the most Extreme of them all, amen!
Don't you wish you could be Extreme too?
Read the Extreme Teen Bible and kick it with Jesus!
JESUS CHRIST!
CAN I GET A "WHOOP WHOOP"?

After hitting up the vert on my skateboard, downing a Go-Gurt while getting sick air, there's nothing better than to read my EXTREME™ Teen Bible. What could be more extreme than crucifixion and resurrection? Well, maybe listening to the Van Warped Tour CD while eating EXTREME™ Fruit Snacks, grinding mean slopes on my snowboard with guitar in hand playing insane solos using only my teeth, with my EXTREME™ Teen Bible while fighting against the system and being a true revolutionary like Jesus, but resurrection comes close in extremeness. If it was anymore EXTREME™, we'd call it the Koran. It was so EXTREME™, that my head exploded while reading it just from how much EXTREME™ was in the small package. I would definately buy this if you want the most hardcore, incredible, extreme EXTREME™ on the market today.

Format: Hardcover
I recently got this bible, it totally rocked. It has profiles sopradically placed throught on Bible characters who made a difference and how you can make a difference as well. It also shows various promises God has made and how they realte to teens and where other relevant verses can be found. It points out verses on questions, and it explains things(like the references to dogs)that you may have trouble with. This bible also has thought starters on how to help teens discover God's plans, full page(often 2) profiles of each book and how they break down, and 4 different reading plans for the bible(30 days with Jesus, 60 days with Paul, 90 overview, the bible in 365 days). This bible got me back in the word and I've read it more than ever. The translation makes it a bit tough for some people, but if you want more of a challenge than the NIV gives, this translation is for you.

Format: Paperback
This Bible is fun to read, and teens who don't connect with or understand the cultural references will find some explanations here. But these explanations are often simplistic and superficial, with little or no spiritual content. Most of the annotations consist of rigid behavioral dictates based on conservative, fundamental interpretations. Readers of this Bible will not be told that various conflicting interpretations exist among clergy of all denominations (including among conservatives), and among biblical scholars. If this Bible can help teens to avoid self-destructive behavior, so much the better, and more power to it. But it's not the version to read, at any age, if you want a deeper or more spiritual understanding of Scripture (the NASB or NRSV Student Bibles are better).

As a child in bible camp, I found my classes so excruciatingly boring that I was often caught entertaining myself by staring down the nun's cleavage and crossing my eyes, making it look like there were two nuns lecturing me, and thus twice the cleavage.

This repetitive pattern of self-obsession and lack of care for the word of God continued until I was visited by one of my priests late at night. He offered me a radical new look at life. A look so radical that it might cause me to dress up in skater clothes, put on spiked armbands, dye my hair red, and preach the word that is the EXTREME TEEN BIBLE!

I kid you not, friends! This bible is filled with so much butt-kicking, face-slapping, shin-kicking extreme scripture that upon first opening its pages, my retinas burned. I quickly closed the book and with 50% of my vision remaining, I was able to put on sunglasses and read some of the passages.

This new EXTREME outlook on scripture is so EXTREME that I even finally became popular at parties. I now have the ability to sit people down around and preach to them the EXTREME TEEN BIBLE. After a three minute reading which resulted in everyone leaving, I felt as if I had performed my duty as a Christian.

Make no mistake! This bible is filled with so much EXTREMENESS that you'll become THE person to talk to at your high school when the entire cheerleading squad wants to know about how Judas betrayed Jesus. This bible will change your life. It will transform you from a nerdy overweight dork to a stunning slick-haired hunk almost instantly.

TO THE MAX!!
