A more accessible Bible is launched and explained for young adults

2016-06-04

The Bible is the core text of Christianity, but sometimes it becomes difficult to read, due to its size, external appearance and amount of data and characters.

Many have tried to facilitate access to one of the most important books in history. The latest attempt is from the Spanish edition of Verbo Divino, which after two years of work published this Bible to bring the Sacred Scriptures to young adults.

JOSE LUIS ALBARES
Editorial Verbo Divino
"It's a Bible that can be used at celebrations, in catechesis, for religion classes, at youth groups, and so on. On the other side, it enhances easily understood readings, allows experiential reading of the word of God, and this creates the music that brings the Editorial Divine Word."

The Bible records the official text of the Spanish Episcopal Conference (SEC), organized into chapters that can be reached quickly, without searching through the pages. To help interpret and understand the text, each page includes call-out explanatory boxes.

JOSE LUIS ALBARES
Editorial Verbo Divino
"The vocabulary, questions and reflections are aimed at a younger audience, which could be teenagers around age 15, or young adults between age 25 to 30. I think any Christian adult who wants to commit a little more, wants to go a step further in their faith and engage in Holy Scripture reading can perfectly make this Young Bible their own."

This edition of the Bible concludes with an index,  allowing easy access to the Biblical passages that discuss each issue, each prayer or each parable. It is a quick way to dive into the Word of God.
