Title: Apologetics Bible Study for Students
Author: Sean McDowell
Publisher: Holman Bible Publishers (updated 2014)
Pages: 1440
Year: 2014
My rating is 5 stars.
The page layout makes reading the Scripture exceptionally easy without the additional commentary at the bottom or middle or the pages. Additional articles are written including references for the students to see where in the Bible to find supporting verses. At the beginning of each individual book in each testament, there is an introduction

The Apologetics Study Bible For Students (Hardcover Edition) is an attractively designed Bible that actually looks more like a text book than a Bible (except for the telltale ribbon and black and red indexed tabs).

This Bible contains the full text of the Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB) translation – a literal translation that’s endorsed by well-respected pastor-teachers such as Dr. Tony Evans, Dr. Charles Stanley, and Dr. Charles Colson!

Easily deemed one of my favorite go-to-sources, I loved this Bible translation. The use of language was familiar and comfortable, and I found myself referring to it quite often.

Hard Questions. Straight Answers.
For Students!
I recall back in 2008-2009 or thereabout when I first really heard the term apologetics and I was intrigued as I did not know it. Over the years I have come very familiar with the term and have incorporated it into my own studies as well as the plans for my own studies, young though they now may currently be in our studies with the Apologia What We Believe series. About that same time while participating in a blog tour I was introduced to Apolog

I’m very impressed with this study Bible for students. It is peppered throughout with many, many articles that tackle tough questions in a straightforward manner. There are also focused sections throughout this Bible that cover “Twisted Scripture”. These sections cover various scriptures that people take out of context and twist for their own uses. I like the way these sections point back to and explain the way the scripture is being misused, then clearly helps the reader to uncover what the int ...more

This Book has helped enlighten me on many levels. It has helped me understand the Book of Revelations most of all and for that I am most thankful.

“I can’t read the Bible. It just doesn’t make sense to me. Too many Thee’s and Thou’s and references to things I just don’t understand.” I’ve had this thought myself and I have heard it echo’ed in comments from my friends. What do you do? The Bible is an important part of our Christian faith. It is important for us to not only read, but to understand what is contained between it’s covers.

I started out reading the King James version, it was like reading Shakespeare to me. Sounded beautiful, but m

The Christian walk of faith is certainly one of that requires a lot of faith, but also a trust in a God that we, as a generation has never seen. The world for most students who are attending public school and colleges are those in whose faith will be put to the ultimate test, to stand for the truth in an ever changing world that is growing more hostile to the Christian faith. Will our generation of children be able to stand strong in the coming storm? Will they have all the answers they need to ...more

This is actually more than a review of just the Bible, but I will review it first:

I am not familiar with the regular Apologetics Bible, so I don't know how much this one for students differs from the one for adults. I personally didn't find this one "dumbed down" for lack of a better way to put it. I found everything on a level that I could appreciate, but then it is geared for kids that are almost adults.

I liked all of the features in the Bible, but the one I liked the best is the Twisted Scr

The new Apologetics Study Bible For Students is a beautiful Bible for young people. My son will be 14 next month and he especially liked several aspects of this Bible.

Right away, he noticed that the print is dark and easy to read. This Bible is well-constructed, easy-to-use and read.

Then, each book of the Bible has an introduction that includes a summary of the book, the author of the book, when the book was written in time and what else was going on in the world at that time.He found that helpf

After going through the Apologetics Study Bible for Students my first thought was, where was this Bible when my kids were teens? First, it is the version that I enjoy reading and studying from. The HCSB version is easy to understand but also accurate to the original text.

The next thing that I liked was how easy it is to find what you are looking for. Not only are there thumb tabs on the spine so that you can easily flip to the book you are wanting, there are also indexes in the front that give

In today's world faith and Christianity is more important than ever for our teens. When they are challenged about what they believe or just asked by fellow peers why they believe what they believe they might need a bit of help being steered in the right direction for the answer. With the Apologetics Study Bible they have a valuable resource that will make finding those answers easier. One of the stand out features of this Bible was the numerous articles included that answered a multitude of ques ...more

The translation itself is fine. I was put off a bit by the use of 'slave' for 'servant' because 'slave' in our culture has negative connotations, and those connotations can be distracting.

The 'articles' were what disappointed me though. I was hoping for deep study, actual apologetics on the questions that thinking people ask about Christianity, and I think although some of them were good and very interesting, many of the 'answers' were not well thought out or supported by scripture. I know I bo

Love this Bible. I especially like the summary listed before each book with a brief description and a timeline. Includes articles written by Apologetic heavy-hitters, as well.
