A few years ago, I had the pleasure of reviewing the original Apologetics Study Bible For Students – a resource-rich Bible, written in the Holman Christian Standard Bible translation, that was designed to help students intelligently share their faith.
Now, the newly released CSB Apologetics Study Bible For Students carries on that tradition with a fresh look, an updated translation, and more extensive apologetics materials than ever!
Let’s start with the translation. CSB stands for Christian Standard Bible and is the revision to the Holman Christian Standard Bible that provides readers with updated word choices that remains true to the original languages while providing greater clarity and readability to modern audiences.
Next comes a sleek new look design: a fresh blue and grey and layout throughout that spotlights the top 130+ questions that students are asking, plus the new articles and extensive apologetics study material that this Bible is known for!
You’ll find the following Key Features inside of the CSB Apologetics Study Bible For Students:
* Book Introductions with Timelines of what’s going on elsewhere in the world.
* Study Notes with evidence on the reliability and truthfulness of Scripture.
* Articles that address culturally significant questions accurately yet sensitively.
* Bones & Dirt segments that feature archaeological discoveries of apologetic value.
* Twisted Scripture Notes that highlight Scriptures that other religious movements distort to support doctrines that run contrary to historic Christian teaching.
Other features include notable quotes, tactics to help students withstand attacks against their faith, and personal stories about how God has dramatically worked in people’s lives!
This Bible is formatted in a two-column text featuring a 9.5 point type with all of the niceties you’d expect in a Bible, including a presentation page, a ribbon marker, and full color maps!
If you are looking for a Bible that will helps the teenage, college-age and young adult students in your life grasp Scripture in a way that relates to the cultural issues of the day so that they can impact the people around them, then the CSB Apologetics Study Bible For Students is the perfect gift for them!
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
