This Bible is a nice addition to the apologist's library. Since the contributors are so varried in their apologetical and theological convictions, you will certainly not agree with everything in this Bible (other than the inspired text!). Nevertheless, it is chalk full of mini-articles on myriad philosophical, scientific, theological, and apologetical issues. These articles are written by some big names, e.g., Frame, Nash, Craig, Copan, Moreland, Blomberg, etc. You're sure to find some good info in at least some of the articles.

The articles range from: anthropological dualism, days of creation, reliability of the Old and New Testaments, alleged Hellinistic influences, Jesus' resurrection, and much more. The copious notes are also helpful in at least getting your mental juices flowing when searching for an apolgetical answer (perhaps on the spot) in response to popular level criticism.

Finally, the translation is also decent (being geared more toward a word-for-word translation). Thus, not only are the above treats included, but in getting this Bible you will also have God's holy word in your possession. Perhaps a desire to find out what the various scholars have to say about the Bible will spur you on to spend more time studying God's revelation to, and for, man. Or, perhaps knowing that you have many great minds to help explain (though, they aren't to be treated as Popes!) those passages you usually have difficulty (whether intellectual or emotional) with will make you more confident in approaching Bible study. That can't be a bad thing!

Nelson De Hi Paul, can you please be more specific on the negatives and positives? I trust your review. I'll prefer a non bias study bible. Specially when it has the input of various theologians.
