Apologetics Study Bible for Students

Apologetics Study Bible for Students

I’m excited to be bringing you a review of the Apologetics Study Bible for Students written in the Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB) translation.  When it comes to our faith, we Christians are all students of the Bible, so this resource is a wonderful tool for everyone.

Your first question is probably the most obvious – What is apologetics?  The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines apologetics as a systematic argumentative discourse in defense (as of a doctrine) and as a branch of theology devoted to the defense of the divine origin and authority of Christianity.

but honor the Messiah as Lord in your hearts. Always be ready to give a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you.
1 Peter 3:15

The Apologetics Study Bible for Students has many great features including:

  • Introductions to each book
  • Study notes at the bottom of each page that show the reliability of the scriptures
  • 120 of the most commonly asked questions answered by modern Christian thinkers like Ravi Zacharias, Hank Hanegraaff, Chuck Colson, and Lee Strobel
  • 60 scriptures that are easily twisted by non-Christian believers
  • 50 important archaeological discoveries
  • 50 notable quotes
  • 25 of the most commonly distorted passages are highlighted with the truth
  • 20 encouraging personal stories
  • 20 apologetic topics each with a bullet-point list for easy reference

There are a number of great references available on the Apologetics Study Bible for Students including 16 weeks of video teachings from Sean McDowell, the General Editor.  This one below was actually an argument someone gave to me and I didn’t know how to handle it.



There are also free study tools for download and a mobile app so you can take your Apologetics Study Bible on the road with you.  The Bible is tabbed so that you can easily find any of the 66 books at a glance.  And, finally, it has a ribbon bookmark for you to conveniently mark your place.

I highly recommend the Apologetics Study Bible for Students and it will be a great addition to my Bible study arsenal and a welcome addition to my theology school tools.
