I received this Bible as a gift, and was very excited to use it. I had an earlier cover than the one that is shown. I really enjoy the Holman translation, and for that reason I gave this Bible a three star review. Some of the articles were helpful, but I found that several articles, especially those regarding Creation and the Flood were somewhat wishy-washy. For instance, the Bible commentary would not hold to a strictly literal 6 day creation but rather left the issue open to debate, and even played down the importance of defending such a view. I believe that a resource designed to help students (and I am a student) defend their faith must be very firm and determined in its defense of Biblical clarity and infallibility. Sadly, I felt this wasn't. Hopefully the version with a newer cover has remedied this flaw.
I am a Sunday School teacher. I teach high school students and we focus on apologetics. I make sure every student has a copy of this Bible. The articles included are excellent and I find that the students are asking the same questions that are addressed in the articles.
This additional information is an excellent draw to pull them into the Bible and stimulate further reading and conversation. There are lots of great Bibles, but this one is amazing for teaching, it has become my apologetics textbook.
This Apologetics Bible was the best tool for those who are in school in by Apologetics class me and my classmates enjoyed this I learned how to defend my faith was facts. I saw where questions was posed from another point of view and I had to defend my faith. Excellent book!!!
my son's bible got ruined at a camp. He was so upset so I told him we would get a new one. He was afraid it wouldn't get here in time for his next camp but also that it might not be the right one. Well as you see everything turned out fine and he likes this one better then his last one. He just started a teen boys bible study. thank you
