The Youth Bible contains the original text of the fully revised and revised new edition of the Unit Translation 2017.
Internationally renowned scholars made the selection of biblical texts for this Bible in the proven YOUCAT style and provided them with lively and informative comments. But also young people were involved: According to the recommendation of Cardinal Schönborn (“If you want to do something for young people, you have to do it with them!”) They contributed photos and testimonies to the Bible text.
The funny illustrations by Alexander von Lengerke, who sends his stick figures through the whole book in a “storyline”, are intended to encourage young, perhaps even Bible-less readers to read.
Pope Francis presents the readers with a motivational foreword to the Youth Bible. He calls on the young people to read the Bible intensively and wishes them to read the Bible together and engage with the Word of God. Pope Francis also points to the power of the Bible because it is “not just a piece of literature” but “a book like fire”!
