Book Review – The Apologetics Study Bible for Students HCSB

When I got the request to review The Apologetics Study Bible for Students HCSB I immediately thought of my son-in-law to do the review. He’s a youth minister and passionate about helping students study scripture, so it was a perfect fit. Here’s his guest review.  


Guest Review by Clay Herd

When my mother-in-law offered me the chance to review a Bible, I could hardly contain myself. I spent my first few days with the Bible thumbing through it. As a youth pastor, I am often looking for Bibles to recommend to my students. I decided to take the challenge and spend two weeks with this Bible as both my personal and my study Bible for sermons.

One of the first features that I enjoyed was the beginning of each book; there is an introduction to the book that ties very well into a student’s life. I also really like how there are tabs on the side of the Bible telling the students where the books of the Bible are.

I found that the more I searched the more I found in the pages of this Bible. I really enjoyed getting to use The Apologetics Study Bible for Students, and I recommend it for any Christian whether new or mature. This Bible was an excellent tool to be able to dive into God’s word and really take a look at history in a student’s perspective.


A Few Features of The Apologetics Study Bible for Students HCSB:
– Book Introductions for each of the sixty-six books of the Bible.
– Study Notes provide evidence of the reliability and truthfulness of Scripture.
– 120 Articles written by today’s leading Christian thinkers dealing with life’s ultimate questions.
– 60 Twisted Scriptures address ways that various religious movements distort Scripture to support doctrine contrary to historic Christian teaching.

Also, this summer, the gift of Confident Faith is being celebrated with 16 brand new, but energetic and brief videos featuring Sean McDowell, free resources like Bible studies and articles as well as wonderful specials on apps and Bibles.  There are new resources every week – a full 16 weeks of resources when it is all done.  AND, if that weren’t enough, a Confident Faith Sweepstakes is being offered to give away Bibles, free mini libraries of B&H’s best apologetics resources and even a trip for two to the National Conference on Christian Apologetics (NCCA) being held October 16-17, 2015 in Charlotte, NC where some of the world’s leading thinkers will offer insights and teaching.
