Publisher's Description

Like the acclaimed Apologetics Study Bible that has sold 115,000+ copies, the Apologetics Study Bible for Students will anchor younger Christians in the truths of Scripture by equipping them with thoughtful and practical responses for whenever the core issues of their faith and life are challenged.

Multiple research studies have shown that spiritual focus often weakens among teenagers as they head into the attention-dividing realm of young adulthood. Up to 66% of them leave church altogether. The Apologetics Study Bible for Students works against that trend by helping this audience begin to better articulate its beliefs. In addition to the complete HCSB text and dozens of articles collected from today’s most popular youth leaders, including general editor Sean McDowell, this new study Bible also includes:

• Two-color design-intensive layout on every page for the visual generation

• Sixty “Twisted Scriptures” explanations

• Fifty “Bones & Dirt” entries (archaeology meets apologetics)

• Fifty “Notable Quotes”

• Twenty-five “Tactics” against common anti-Christian arguments

• Twenty “Personal Stories” of how God has worked in real lives

• Twenty “Top Five” lists to help remember key apologetics topics

    It is much bigger then I imagined, thus making it heavier then I thought it would be. I haven't used it yet, but have heard it is a lot like the NIV.

    Know any high school or college student who wants to learn how to defend their Christian faith? Know a student who wants to grow in their relationship with Jesus? Know a student who is a new Christian? Get them this Bible. Sean McDowell has done a great job putting this student apologetics resource together and it will benefit any student to have a copy.

    The Apologetics Study Bible includes numerous features aimed at helping students learn more about what it means to be a Christian as well as learn how to give a reason for their faith in Christ. There are articles covering 120 of the most commonly asked questions about Christianity. There are in-depth study notes on each page. A feature I believe is great for students is the twisted Scripture section. This section responds to 60 Bible passages most commonly used by cults and others to distort the true Biblical meaning. Bones and dirt is a section addressing key archaeological finds that relate to the Biblical story. A section with notable quotes from past and present apologists, a Challenges and Tactics section to equip the student to be prepared to handle common challenges to Christianity. And finally, Personal stories and fast facts are also included (p. iv).

    A few questions addressed in the articles included are why does God allow evil?, is it okay to have doubts?, and Does the Bible contain errors? There are many more questions answered throughout this Bible, and as I read through them, I realized how helpful this resource would be for any student who wants to take their faith seriously. I serve at a church as a youth pastor and quite often, one of the hardest things to do is help students understand how to grow in their faith. Simply telling them to read their Bible is not always helpful because there can be some confusing passages and it can just be boring at times. This resource would be perfect to put into their hands. I wish I would have had something like this when I was a teenager and began taking my relationship with Jesus Christ seriously.

    The version this Bible uses is the Holman Christian Standard Bible. I wish they had an ESV version but the HCSB is extremely easy to read and understand. Each book of the Bible comes with an introduction which also serves to help students understand the context of the book and includes dates stating what was going on at the time this book was probably written.

    All in all, I highly recommend this Bible. If you are a youth pastor and want something to get as a gift for your graduating seniors, consider this Bible. If you are a parent, pick one up for your student and then make the effort to read through it together. If you are a student and want to learn how to take your faith seriously, then go get one.

    In compliance with regulations introduced by the Federal Trade Commission, I received a complimentary copy of this Bible from B&H Publishing Co. in exchange for this review.

    After going through the Apologetics Study Bible for Students my first thought was, where was this Bible when my kids were teens? First, it is the version that I enjoy reading and studying from. The HCSB version is easy to understand but also accurate to the original text.

    The next thing that I liked was how easy it is to find what you are looking for. Not only are there thumb tabs on the spine so that you can easily flip to the book you are wanting, there are also indexes in the front that give detailed descriptions so you can turn to the exact portion you are looking for according to topic.

    My very favorite thing about this Bible is how interactive it is. While it of course contains the complete text of the Bible, it also has articles throughout that allow the student to learn and absorb the facts pertaining to apologetics. Our kids are increasingly faced with tough situations and questions from nonbelievers and teaching them apologetics is an important part of helping them put on the armor of God.

    Did you also know that there is a video based Bible study using the Apologetics Study Bible for Students? It is a 16-week study that can be used with youth groups, Christian or home schools, or as in our case your personal home studies. You can find more about it at www.ApologeticsBible.com

    I received a copy of this Bible to facilitate my review.

    I cant read the Bible. It just doesnt make sense to me. Too many Thees and Thous and references to things I just dont understand. Ive had this thought myself and I have heard it echoed in comments from my friends. What do you do? The Bible is an important part of our Christian faith. It is important for us to not only read, but to understand what is contained between its covers.

    I started out reading the King James version, it was like reading Shakespeare to me. Sounded beautiful, but made little sense. Then I moved on to a Student Bible. It has helped me study the scriptures but over the years its Study Notes and Personal Stories have become outdated (It still references Cassette Tapes). It has been time for an upgrade for some time, but because I have had this particular Bible for so many years, I am reluctant to part with it. My study notes, highlights, and even notes from friends are contained within its pages. Since the scriptures havent changed over time, I have held onto it and just purchased outside books for study.

    The Apologetics Study Bible For Students HCSB is a new Study Bible for todays Christian. The HCSB was born of the need to have a Bible that reflected todays English. There is a great introduction in the front of the Bible that explains what the Holman Christian Standard Bible is and explains their translations philosophy and other important features. To learn more about the HCSB translation please visit their website.

    The within its pages youll find several features that will make your bible study easier and more fulfilling. There is an introduction to each of the sixty-six books for the Bible. This is one of my favourite features. It gives you some insight into what is happening in the world at the time. This helps me understand why people are acting the way they do and why certain things that seem insignificant to me are extremely important to the story.

    There are 120 Articles that deal with lifes tough questions, written by leading Christian thinkers. Sixty Twisted Scriptures that show how and why people distort Christian teachings. I love when science proves that the stories in the Bible actually happened. Explore some of these discoveries through the 50 Bone and Dirt features outlining archaeological discoveries. It also includes 20 Personal Stories to show us how God has worked in the lives of others and 20 Top Fives that are bullet points to help you remember significant apologetics topics.

    The Apologetics Study Bible For Students HCSB is a Bible that anyone would be proud to carry. It has a hard-cover in brown tones. It is something that anyone can use and will not go out of style in years to come.

    I do find the pages, like many other Bibles, very thin. I havent tried highlighting any text in it, I am at the campground with no access to to a high-lighter, but I feel that the colours may bleed through. I also find the pages a bit difficult to turn, but I believe that is only due to the fact that it is a brand new book and I havent had the chance to flip over each page.

    There are foot notes on virtually every page that help explain the scriptures. I find myself referencing these more and more as I explore the Bible. Each page is clearly numbered on the bottom and the upper corner contains the Book and starting/ending verse. Each chapter is clearly number with large number and title, which helps you understand what you are about to read. They have also payed extreme attention to the line breaks. I notice this the most in the Book of Psalms, where each line ends in a logical place instead of what sometimes seems random in other translations.

    I disliked the way the quotes are displayed. They are inline with the text only differentiated by a font colour. I feel new Christians will find it difficult to immediately tell if its scripture or a quote. After using the Bible for a bit it will become easily identifiable but initially it may be confusing.

    The Apologetics Study Bible For Students HCSB is a great translation and an excellent resource using todays English, while remaining true to the scriptures. Here is a small example of a verse we all know and cherish.

    For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.

    John 3:16

    For me there are a few simple changes, but the meaning is still there in its entirety. The HCSB also includes a footnote for this verse (and the next) which helps me to further understand its meaning.
