Introducing Teens to the Heart of God


The new CSB Heart of God Teen Study Bible guides teens and young adults through Scripture with a focus on connecting with God and understanding his character.


Explore God’s Word and Understand His Heart

Every passage in the Bible tells us something about who God is, who we are as those created in his image, and what God’s purpose is for us and for the world. With this teen study Bible, young people will grow in their personal relationship with God and learn to discern his heart—his values, his will, and his purpose in the world—in the constantly changing circumstances of life.
