Are you familiar with the “My City My God” Bible that International Bible Society (IBS) published 10 yrs or so ago? It is an urban youth themed edition that includes testimonies from teens about how Christ has impacted their lives. I know I personally used it with my teens and years ago found out that one of youth in John Lewis‘s youth group was included. We found it to be a great resource for our urban youth as they could relate to the testimonies featured in it. This new edition includes testimonies from city kids around the country (including two from Generation Xcel in New York) along with an introduction by Rudy Carrasco.
IBS is allowing UYWI to post the designs to gather feedback from teens from our respective youth ministries. IBS needs to choose a cover that will most appeal to urban youth. They have 4 mock-ups and they want our youth to choose which one is best. The rub is we don’t want only youth leaders’ feedback but your teens also.
Please link to this from your blog or myspace to get your youth’s input on the cover artwork. Thank you in advance for your help and your feedback (as well as the feedback of your youth).
Please comment below on which cover your prefer.
