Revolve 2010 (review)

What do the New Testament, a quiz on being a talkaholic, Jordin Sparks, the 411 on guys, and celeb drama have in common? They’re all packed into the new Revolve 2010 Biblezine. A Biblezine is a combination of the complete text of the New Testament (NCV) in a colorful magazine format designed especially for teen and preteen girls. Teens want to know how the Bible applies to their lives right now. With daily devotional readings and relevant topics, Revolve 2010 addresses today’s hottest topics and keeps girls in the Word.

When Revolve 2010 came in the mail, my two teen/preteen girls wrestled over it. When I sat down to write this review, my oldest had to dig it out from under a stack of books on the floor underneath her desk where she had it hidden from her sister. Cool graphics, fun quizzes, and the most sought after Christian artists make Revolve 2010 the most innovative New Testament for keeping teens engaged in Bible reading. I just wish I had two copies: one for each of my girls! My only disappointment is that it included a list of stops for the Revolve 2009 tour, but not for 2010.

Disclosure: I’m a member of Thomas Nelson’s BookSneeze program and they provided me with a complimentary copy of this book to review. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
