Hello everyone, today I’m going to be listing two books and two Bibles that I think would make awesome reads for young teens. Over the next few weeks, all of these will be reviewed here on Electively Paige and would all make really great Easter gifts for someone you love(or for yourself!) To make this even more amazing, I’m partnering with Zondervan/Zonderkidz publisher to host a really awesome giveaway! So read on to hear about the books and to enter to win!
All In: Student Edition by Mark Batterson & Parker Batterson
The Gospel costs nothing—it’s a free gift compliments of God’s grace. But while it doesn’t cost anything, it demands everything—including that we go ‘all in, ‘ a term that means placing all that you own into the game of life. And that’s where many of us get stuck. What if we miss out on what this life has to offer? The truth is, the only thing you’ll miss out on is everything God has to offer. Inside these pages, Mark Batterson shares vivid stories of people going all in for a greater purpose, ranging from the against-all-odds defense of Little Round Top in the Civil War to the lives of biblical characters like Shamgar and Moses and Elijah and Caleb and … Judas. The message of All In Student Edition is simple: if Jesus is not Lord of all then Jesus is not Lord at all. It’s all or nothing. It’s now or never. Jesus gave all of Himself for you on Calvary’s cross. He wants all of you in return. In essence, your life is not your own—but it can be more amazing than you ever dared imagine if you decide to go all in.
Gods At War: Student Edition by Kyle Idleman
In this student edition of gods at war, Kyle Idleman, bestselling author of not a fan, helps us recognize there are false gods at war within each of us, and they battle for the place of glory and control in our lives. What keeps us from truly following Jesus Christ is that our hearts are pursuing something or someone else like money or popularity. While these pursuits may not be the ‘graven images’ of old, they are in fact modern day idols. Behind the sin you’re struggling with, the fear you’re dealing with, the lack of purpose you’re living with is a false god that is winning the war for your heart.

I have read both All In and Gods At War and find them both to be very thought-provoking reads. I think the Young Women of Faith Bible would be great for preteens and young teens, and the way it’s put together makes the Bible so much fun! The NIV Bible for Teens is also a great bible for teens, both boys and girls, and it’s tiny size makes it easy to carry around, but you can still read the words on the page which is great because that’s my biggest pet peeve with most pocket Bibles– not being able to read the print! I’m 17, there’s something wrong if I can’t read something because it’s too small!
