By Harold McFarland HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on April 26, 2004
Format: Paperback
I really enjoy finding a Bible that will get people talking and this one will definitely do that. "Refuel" is basically the New Century Version of the New Testament. But that is where the resemblance to a traditional Bible ends. A lot of people will probably have a hard time accepting a Bible of this nature but a lot will also find it the best idea in youth Bibles in a long time. I tend toward the second group.
So, what makes this Bible so different? The first thing that grabs your attention is the fact that it has the same layout and style as a modern teen magazine. In addition to the Bible there are music reviews, suggestions on how to live your faith, life guidance ideas, tips for understanding girls (the Refuel version is designed for teenage boys) and a lot of other items of contemporary interest. I have to say that this is one of the most difficult reviews that I have ever had to write because you really cannot appreciate the appeal of this Bible until you actually see it. It stays true to the traditional Bible and New Century Version and so provides the complete story of the New Testament while at the same time providing visual appeal and guidance in a manner that is much more likely to appeal to a teenage boy. It is easy to pick up and just start reading and inviting to leaf through and read a few sections at a time.
Now, having sung the praises of this wonderful Bible and how strongly it appeals to teenagers I will have to note that although the scripture is an accurate rendering of the Bible as translated in the New Century Version, the filler pieces, columns, and short articles do at times advance particular positions that all Christians may not necessarily hold. I might as well go after one of the really big ones as an example.

I think this is the sort of thing you either love or hate, and if you don't have any idea what it is or what the content of it is so you poke fun at.

Refuel is a good tool for any guy, but it is geared towards high school aged kids. It has many categories in it, including thoughts about girls, questions and answers, challenging your faith with difficult scriptures, and ideas on living your faith through service opportunities.

I feel sorry for the people who can't see the spiritual value in something like this. Guys who have never picked up a real bible will read this, and yes, they'll like it.

I recommend it, and plan to send a few copies to our Troops overseas.

I'm going to review the Format, Translation, and Commentary of the Refuel Bible separately.
Format: Innovative and eye-catching, the BibleMag format is proving to be a good way to get Christian teenagers and young adults to read the Scriptures. However, the bible is over 10.5 inches (27.5 cm) long, and 1/2 inch(1 cm) thick, making it impossible to role up and stow in a pocket. This limits it's portability, which makes this non-scary bible much less useful. (3 of five stars)
Translation: The NCV is inclusive and as accurate as a bible written in easy-to-read English can be. It deserves major kudos for a footnote explaining that "the Word" in John 1:1 is "logos" and refers to Christ. (5 of 5 stars)
Notes: The notes come from an unashamedly Conservative Evangelical perspective. I disagree with a lot of what they say, but they have every right to say that Paul wrote Timothy, and that "everything in the Bible is absolutely true and will never change." However, some of the advice is both legalistic and silly (eg. don't kiss your girlfriend), which could undermine the good advice. (2 of 5)

I know that's kind of strong, but really. I was looking for a light weight magazine type format that would be more comfortable to hold and read. All the cool graphics that are going to quickly become outdated with the younger crowd I can't identify with. So, the only way we can woe them in is to try to dazzle them with stuff they can identify with. Backwards. And the book is not lightweight. And the print is way to small even for the average reader. And I know this is bad grammar.

I think these new style Bibles are great. Anything to help teenagers read the truth. There is enough garbage out there that our teens are reading. Some of the reviewers should obviously not be writing a review for a Christian book, let alone a version of the Bible. Sure, it may not be my taste of a sit down and read Bible, but I am long past being a teenager. The teens I have talked to think it is pretty cool to have a Bible they can take somewhere that doesn't look like a typical Bible. Don't let a couple negative reviews keep you from getting any of these for your teen. Check out the New Century Version and make sure it is ok with you. Well, you all take care.

I specifically ordered this version for the cover picture, but received a different picture on the cover of a skateboarder. I am pleased with the rest of the Bible, but wanted that cover for my nephew as a gift. I am still going to give it to him, and think he will like it, but preferred the cover shown. It is in good condition and shipped quickly.
