Why should I read it?
The Bible is the best trailbook ever written, because it came from God. It's full of amazing true stories and teaches us how we should live. God gave us the Bible to prepare and equip us to do good things (see 2 Timothy 3:16-17). Watch Josh explain it!
How can I read it? It's a BIG book!
Try to read in your Trailbook (your Bible) a little bit each day. You don't need to start at the front and read all the way to the end like a regular book. Here are some things that might help:
How the Bible is Organized
How to Look Up a Verse
True Stories in the Bible
What Should I Read? (you might want to print this and keep it in your Bible or other visible place)

Did you know the Bible is a Trailbook?
At Youth Haven, we call the Bible our Trailbook, because it is a guide God gave to us to help us find our way through the world we live in.
If you have been to Youth Haven before and you have your Trailbook:
You can use your Trailbook for the fun activities on our website.
If you don't have a Youth Haven Trailbook:
You can use your Bible for the fun activities on our website. The Trailbook is the New Living Translation, so if the words in your Bible don't match up exactly, you can use a website called Bible Gateway to read verses in the New Living Translation.
If you don't have a Trailbook or a Bible:
Ask your parent or guardian to contact us, and we'll send you a Trailbook! Have them send an email to email@example.com, telling us you don't have a Bible and they would like us to send you a Trailbook. Make sure they include your name and address so we know where to send it!
