Wouldn’t it be great if we could all engage with the Bible together with our families? With our busy schedules and different interests, sometimes it can be hard to keep young people (and adults!) engaged. That is where the new Good News Bible – Family Edition comes in!
Here at Bible Society, we believe that the Bible should be at the centre of family life, as something that is experienced together. So, in partnership with our good friends at Youth for Christ (along with other family-focused organisations) we set to work to create a Bible that is truly designed for a family to engage with together.
The Family Edition offers plenty of different ways to engage with the Bible. Its unique outward-facing landscape design allows everyone in your family to engage with different parts of the Bible at the same time, meaning that no one gets bored! Everyone has space to be creative in this Bible, which is packed with colourable sections and has space for writing and doodling, as well as many other interactions. It even features a removable and re-usable ‘whiteboard’ jacket so that your family can really make the Bible feel like your own.
Alongside the fantastic Family Edition, we want to celebrate and equip families with more resources to help them on their journey with the Bible. It doesn’t matter if your family wants to grasp the bigger picture of the Bible or if they simply want to have fun with the stories – what is important is that you can do it together. To help, we have picked out a selection of resources to support your family Bible reading time.
