I love that it doesn't give so much of man's opinion, but simply takes a topic and delivers God's Scriptures to the reader. There is no purer truth than that. Unfortunately, there are some versions included that have filtered out some of the original meaning from the Word, but as a whole, the biblical wisdom has been retained.
It's helpful in daily devotions for Teenagers. I myself enjoy it.
Illuminating Selections from the Bible- great book for teens
Even though I am well past my teenage years, I read this book just to see how inspirational it was for the younger generation. I really loved this book for it's simplicity. Each section or topic, which is in alphabetical order starting with Adversity, gave a small introduction to the meaning of the word or subject then scripture verses pertaining to the topic, and ending with a prayer for dealing with it in your own life. And in the back of the book, there is a schedule for reading the Bible in a year. It is a very good read for anyone, young or old to connect with help for everyday Christian living!
Just as a candle can help you navigate a dark room, one spark of illumination can resolve many of life's questions. Have you been seeking the bright daylight of wisdom and understanding? Searching for a beacon of hope and encouragement? Then turn to the one source of pure light, which the psalm writer called "a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path": God's Word. Especially for teens, this book contains hundreds of Bible verses (organized into dozens of topics) that will help define your purpose in life, clarify and strengthen your relationship with others and with God, and Provide encouragement and hope for the future.
