Reading the Bible can sometimes be a challenge. When it comes to
teenagers, the challenge is even bigger. To make things a bit more
appealing a group developed a Catholic Bible specifically for teenagers.
It was first published six years ago by an American institute called "Fe y Vida", meaning faith and life in Spanish.
Since it was designed for teenagers, the Bible has main bullet points, short prayers, drawings and easy to read summaries. On their website, one can download a small portion of that Bible to get an idea of its layout. Or one can even take an animated tour of its different sections. A list of resources includes a question and answer portion, with relevant answers for the youth and songs that can be downloaded for free.
Since this youth Bible was first published, the institute has also launched its own facebook and youtube site, to reach out to even more young adults.
For now, the Catholic youth Bible is published only in Spanish and Italian. It's currently being translated into Portuguese. Roughly half a million copies have been sold in the U.S, Latin America and Europe.
