CEB Student Bible Review & Giveaway


The CEB Student Bible was designed to help students engage with God's word. It should help teens ages 13 and up make a connection between the their world and the Bible. 

This Bible is written in the Common English Bible translation. This version was completed in 2011 and is sponsered by the Common English Bible Committee. One hundred twenty Bible scholars worked to translate this version. It uses naturally sounding phrases that resemble how young people talk, read, and write with their friends. 

The Student Bible includes:
  • An introduction to each Bible book, inlcuding an overview, key themes, and quick facts. 
  • 16 pages of maps by National Geographic with a map index.
  • Multiple prayers and reflections written by students for students. 
  • Discussion questions, activities, and excercises for each book of the Bible. 
  • The indexes include key articles for each book, well-known and less well-known bible passages and stories. 


Everyone in our family has their own bible in the NASB version, but we love using other versions during our family devotions. This sometimes helps us understand things a little more or helps us see things in a different way than we had previously had. This new Bible version flows really well and is great for reading out loud. The added reflections included in the Student Bible are well written and can help the teens relate to the topics.

We already own the Deep Blue Kids Bible from Abingdon Press that is written in the CEB version, and my older kids are enjoying this Student Bible as much as we do the Kids Bible.  

~~~Giveaway~~~

My favorite Bible for years was a different version of "The Student Bible" I received as a teenager. If I win, I might keep it for myself, at least to read through once then share.
