This Apologetics Study Bible for Students is based on the very accurate and very readable HCSB text. This is the most accurate translation in my opinion and it is also one of the most readable because it uses natural English.
The Bible is a literal library of reliable evangelical insight on issues facing high school and college students. The study note font size is a bit small (6 point), but for most young people this is not an issue. Study notes, twisted scripture articles, major apologetics articles, etc. are placed where they coordinate with the appropriate Scripture. I can't say enough good things about this Bible. My only criticism is that no study Bible should be without a concordance and sadly the Apologetics Study Bible for Students lacks one. Broadman Holman would do well to add solid concordances to all their Bibles as Crossway does. This criticism aside, this is a tremendous Bible for students of Scripture, of any age.
in my immature days I strongly used "MINI - Concordance" at back of book TO verify that the spiritual Leader had Holy Bible scripture to BACK UP their Proclamations - ALSO To prove that Holy Bible verses are Contradicting this Leaders "self-righteous" Boasting - 1John 4;10 His Love, Not Mine
