The iShine Bible was created especially for tweens and uses the clearly understandable New Living Translation (NLT). It comes in a leather-like binding that will appeal to tweens. The boy’s iShine Bible is Backstage Blue with black and orange accents. The girl’s iShine Bible is Lip Sync Pink with Rockin’ Ruby and silver accents. Its compact size makes it easy to carry.
Some special things you will find in the iShine Bible are colored sections that will help you learn that you are a V.I.P. in God’s eyes.  V. you have value in God’s eyes; I. your identity is found only in Jesus Christ—and wow does that mean a lot!; P. because of the V and I, you have a special purpose in the world.
I really like the question and answer section at the beginning called iShine Index. It is especially designed to appeal to tweens and seemed to be written at the level they would understand and not feel like they were being talked down to or even go over their head. Included at the back of the iShine Bible is a list of Great Chapters of the Bible; Great Stories of the Bible and Great Verses of the Bible to Memorize.
To me this is a great step up for the tweens. They feel too old to use a Children’s Bible but aren’t quite ready for a Teen Bible. I also was glad to see it in the NLT. This is my favorite translation, because it is easier to follow and understand and I think it will be so beneficial to our tweens. I would recommend the iShine Bible to anyone who had a tween whether a boy or girl. They can grow in their faith by digging into a “cool” Bible that will grab their attention and also their friends.
I rated this Bible 5 out of 5 Stars. I also posted a review at and
