Book Review and Giveaway: "The Apologetics Study Bible for Students HCSB"

I enjoyed the opportunity to review  The Apologetics Study Bible for Students HCSBThis Study Bible anchors 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.

I love that this Study Bible is made in a way that speaks through both words and graphics to reach this generation of young people, and in doing so, I feel has an important message for those of us adults who likewise should see this as an effective aid in fulfilling our Commission of winning the world for Christ.

This is an invaluable resource full of important topics to address, including many pressing questions asked today by both non-Christians and Christians:

"Why does God allow evil?"

 "How old is the earth?" 

"How do I know God’s will for my life?"      
"If I can’t see God, how do I know He’s real?

I love that on each page of the Study Bible is an attention-getting color layout of the page, perfect for the younger generation's "visual age", but I also think this attribute makes it such an effective study aide for all ages. I enjoyed the indexed tabs for easier navigation.  

Another feature that I enjoy, which I also feel is ideal for both this younger generation as well as all ages, is the "list" format I feel is used very effectively in sharing ways to "remember key apologetics topics", "tactics against common anti-Christian arguments" and one of my favorite features, of commonly "Twisted Scriptures" and how to explain their meaning.
