I bought this bible two years ago, and it sat virtually unused for a long time. Once I got to university age, and my friends (as well as myself) began to have doubts about various Christian doctrine, this study got a lot of use. There aren't many places where you can find such a fantastic collection of input and articles from the best defenders of the faith of our time. It's worth it for the articles alone.
The notes are excellent, and adress many concerns people have with "contradictions" and "inconsistencies" in the Gospels, and elsewhere. This greatly helped me get through some doubts I had held on to for years.
If you are considering getting this study Bible, it would be best for the following types of people: Grade 12-University age individual, who is having their faith challenged for the first time, anybody who likes to ask questions about the truth of the Bible, anybody struggling with doubts in their faith, or somebody who regularly encounters these types of people.
If that's you, don't hesitate; Get this Bible. You won't regret it.
I was able to bless a brother in Christ thanks to this affordable apologetics bible and help prepare a brother for his calling into the ministry. It was such a blessing to bless him with this bible. It has some amazing features that really help clear things up and it is a translation that is easy to understand. It is really helpful for eliminating doubt and strengthening ones faith against the world that will try to tear it apart and cause doubt and confusion. I definitely recommend it to anyone. I love it.
Since purchasing my own copy of the Apologetics Study Bible four years ago, I have purchased six more as gifts for high school graduates. For those such as myself who do street evangelism in various way, the articles and commentaries are excellent for refuting atheists and skeptics, and for correcting cultists and other false teachings.
