My Thoughts:

The NIV Rock Solid Study Bible for Teens is a hard bound and attractive bible that will stand up to much use and abuse. It is done in paragraph style and contains gray boxes with such things as truths, principles, plans and people, while the promises found in the Bible are highlighted in a box with a border and a cross to really stick out. At the beginning of each chapter, one page is devoted to a book outline and information about the book. In the back of the Bible one will find a concordance, a table of weights and measures, a Bible reading plan, an index to all the Truths, Promises, Principles, Plans, People and God, plus some very nice full colored maps.

As a study Bible, I would have liked to see more for references while reading. There are no center columns and the references at the bottom of the pages are sparse. For me another downside is the words of Christ are not in red. With that said, this is still a nice teen study Bible for those who use the NIV.
