    Book details

Like the acclaimed Apologetics Study Bible that has sold 115,000+ copies, the Apologetics Study Bible for Students will anchor younger Christians in the truths of Scripture by equipping them with thoughtful and practical responses for whenever the core issues of their faith and life are challenged.

Multiple research studies have shown that spiritual focus often weakens among teenagers as they head into the attention-dividing realm of young adulthood. Up to 66% of them leave church altogether. The Apologetics Study Bible for Students works against that trend by helping this audience begin to better articulate its beliefs. In addition to the complete HCSB text and dozens of articles collected from today’s most popular youth leaders, including general editor Sean McDowell, this new study Bible also includes:

• Two-color design-intensive layout on every page for the visual generation

• Sixty “Twisted Scriptures” explanations

• Fifty “Bones & Dirt” entries (archaeology meets apologetics)

• Fifty “Notable Quotes”

• Twenty-five “Tactics” against common anti-Christian arguments

• Twenty “Personal Stories” of how God has worked in real lives

• Twenty “Top Five” lists to help remember key apologetics topics

*An electronic version of a printed book that can be read on a computer or handheld device designed specifically for this purpose.

  • By Sandy Sandmeyer on August 5, 2015

    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. Apologetics is the branch of theology devoted to the defense of the divine origin and authority of Christianity.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 referenceThere 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. There are 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.This is definitely going to be a great tool in my arsenal of Bible study resources and is highly recommended.I'm a product review blogger and I received this product in exchange for an honest review.

    Bought it for grandson, he loves it!!!he grabbed it right away and began scouring topics etc.It has 'twisted Scriptures" where verses that are twisted by cults etc are explained as to what is really meant in the contextIt has study notesit has topics of debate and answers from both well known Bible authorities and the Scriptures themselvesI began using one statement after reading just 1 debatable issues' answer , I put it on my Facebook....what a response!!! Amazing how Christian adults had never thought of this answer before.hint; it was on 'judge not'I really really like this BibleI think it is a great investmentand honestly, i want one !!

    The two stars is only because the kindle version is not user friendly. The navigation is time consuming; you have to scroll through each book and chapter starting in Genesis to find the book you want. For example, if I want to read the book of James, I would have to start at Genesis chapter 1 and all of it's chapters, then through Exodus chapter 1 and all of it's chapters, etc. It's not efficient at all. I'm sure this bible is phenomenal in an actual paper book. I do not recommend this kindle version, even for a casual reading, unless you decide to read it from Genesis to Revelation in order.

    We gave this as a gift to graduating seniors at church. Took time to lead them in looking up examples of different types of resources found in the book. Trust this will prepare them to respond to others who may not understand why we believe what we believe.

    The Translation. I found this to be a very “readable” version. This was an introduction to the Holman Christian Standard Bible for me. It is a modern language translation that combines word-for-word with thought-for-thought philosophies to allow for a smooth reading experience. In the instances where it veers from a literal translation, footnotes allow the reader to still access that literal translation.Articles, Twisted Scripture Notes (60), Challenges and Tactics (25). These segments, interspersed throughout the Bible, are the parts that answer all those questions Esmé pops up with. There is an index at the front if you’re looking for a specific topic, but it’s also fun to just start up a discussion on whatever shows up on the Bible section we’re reading. These are written by a variety of authors, and it’s interesting to see similar topics addressed from different angles.Bones & Dirt Notes (50). If your student is into history, these are interesting to read. You can see how current events and places relate to the Bible text.Personal Stories (20). This would probably be my daughter's favorite aspect. Twenty personal stories make scripture obviously applicable to today’s youth.Book Introductions. These are narratives in a conversational style meant to reach the student in a modern culture. The “What in the world is going on?” section is my personal favorite as it pulls together historic details from around the world. For example, while Psalms were being written, not only was the Iron Age beginning, but the “chiefs of the Olmecs, a pre-Columbian people group in southern Mexico, play an extremely violent, ritualistic ball game juego de pelota.” It just intrigues me.Index Tabs. The format of the book we have includes index tabs to help Bible students find the books of the Bible. We found that quite useful.Formats. Lots of cover choices to meet your student’s preferences!Some Precautions:This isn’t a fit for everyone. If you fall into one of the following categories, think seriously before purchasing.Politically Correct. The notes are mostly written from a socially conservative perspective. They tackle abortion and homosexuality pretty directly, for example. One of the articles that was most pertinent to me was “Do Christianity and Politics Mix,” and I agree with the point that trying to keep secular and sacred separate essentially pigeonholes God.Mormon, Jehovah’s Witness. There are sections that take on the biblical veracity of Mormon and Jehovah’s Witness beliefs head-on.The notes go into doctrinal issues in depth, and there were a couple here and there with emphasis that didn’t exactly line up with my personal beliefs, for example, on the topic of hell. Overall, however, I found the notes to be insightful and a great resource for strengthening my daughter’s Christian beliefs and positions in a world that seems less and less tolerant of those positions every day.
