Designed specifically for tweens, the iShine Bible packs a lot of punch in a small pink or blue package. I chose to review the one for girls and loved the girly designs on the Bible cover. Its size of 6.13 x4.13 inches makes it a perfect to carry along in a purse or bag without being weighted down.
It uses the New Living Translation, which I find to be one of my favorite translations. It features 3 color sections that focuses on helping tweens to realize they are V.I.P(s). Meaning they are valued with a unique identity in Christ and called to a specific purpose. The front of the Bible is filled with helpful information about growing in their spiritual walk and a topical index addressing common questions tweens may have. Additionally, it incorporates multimedia by using links to videos and/or QR codes that are readable by smartphones.
Overall, I think the iShine Bible is one any tween would enjoy. For me, I wish it contained more culturally diverse tween photos. Since it is a compact Bible, the writing is small; however, most tweens would not find that to be a problem for their young eyes.
