I really like the HCSB bibles. I still use my KJV but this Bible is a great tool when teaching the youth at my church. It has relevant questions and the scriptures to back them up. I like the twisted scriptures that are commonly used by the cults or other unbelievers. I use these to prompt discussion with my youth.
I'm normally a die-hard fan of the King James Version of God's Word, but I'm very happy with my decision to purchase the Apologetics Study Bible. The in-text articles on Biblical Controversies such as Evolution vs. Creation; the sections on Twisted Scripture; as well as many other supplemental materials makes The Apologetics Study Bible a must have, indispensable addition for a complete Christian Library. Whether you simply read this Bible from cover to cover or use it as a Topical Study Bible, this is the Bible to use.
Originally I thought I would use this version over my study bible, but no. For me, it is a good addition to my SB. It has great info on other religions/cults...worth the purchase just for that, but some of the pages are dark and hard to read. It is worth having.
