Go beyond just reading the Bible.
The NIV Verse Mapping Bible for Girls helps girls 8 and up get real about studying God’s Word. Using a unique system designed by author and ministry leader Kristy Cambron, girls will compare Bible translations, pick out meaningful words, and explore Hebrew or Greek word definitions. Verse mapping doesn’t have to be complicated. Any girl can use this system to see just how real and relevant the Word of God is in her daily life.
A wonderful way for parents and daughters to dig deeper into God’s Word together, the NIV Verse Mapping Bible and NIV Verse Mapping Bible for Girls give readers the Bible study tools they need to better understand Scripture. Girls will find verse maps partially completed with a preselected verse in multiple Bible translations to help them begin their Bible study journey.
Verse mapping involves five steps:
- Choose: Pick a verse and write it out.
- Compare: Record this verse from two or three other Bible translations and underline key words which are the same or different between translations.
- Research: Look up the Hebrew or Greek meaning for the underlined words and record it.
- Consider: Use the senses to uncover new meaning in the verse: What would it look, feel, smell, taste, or sound like to have experienced what’s happening? Read the verses surrounding this verse. Use other study tools to dig even deeper, if you prefer.
- Apply: What is God saying to you? How can you apply this verse to your life today?

The accurate, readable, and clear New International Version (NIV) text makes the Bible accessible and easy to read for kids. The NIV is the result of over 50 years of work by the Committee on Bible Translation, who oversees the efforts of many contributing scholars. Representing the spectrum of evangelicalism, the translators come from a wide range of denominations and various countries and continually review new research to ensure the NIV remains at the forefront of accessibility, relevance, and authority. Every NIV Bible that is purchased helps Biblica translate and give Bibles to people in need around the world.
