The Bible has been in existence for thousands of years and reportedly continues to sell more than 100 million copies a year, making it perhaps the most read book in the world. Despite this, one wonders if our current generation of youth still finds the Bible relevant.

The Bible can be relevant to teens today. Stories of underdogs, miracles, love, devotion to a higher power and war are universal themes that will always be relatable. Maybe this is a central reason why we are still connected to the same stories after all these years. There really is no real reason that teens would not be able to relate to these stories in the way that their parents and grandparents have in the past.
