New Life Good News Bible (GNB): Perfect for Young Adults


About the Book

2016 BIBLE OF THE YEAR – CRT Awards 2016

The perfect Bible for young adults – accessible, relevant and enjoyable.

This version of the Good News Bible is absolutely unique and ideal for young adults (aged 12+) who are discovering what the world has to offer and are eager to find out what the Bible has to say about it all.

It is the only edition to include a 64-page section of illustrated and down-to-earth articles offering summaries of Biblical teaching on everyday contemporary issues such as the Internet, food, abortion, sexuality, poverty, the media and much more.

As well as the classic, much-loved line drawings by Annie Vallotton – including many previously unseen original drawings – there are also newly written introductions to each book of the Bible, specially crafted for this brand new edition by Nick Page, bestselling author of “The Bible Book”.

Also provided are new navigational features in the headers and margins to help readers find their way around with ease:
20 must-read passages • The life of Jesus • A guide to the Christian year • How did we get the Bible? • Easy access contents lists inside the front and back covers • Side-bar navigation • Ultra-clear text and Bible maps • British English text

With all this and much more, the New Life edition really brings the widely read and highly trusted Good News translation to life – and in touch with the world around us.

Critical Praise

‘Too many people read the Bible with a severe face, but I say no, the Bible is not that. The
