41owj7wia2bl-_sx368_bo1204203200_If you are in the market for a Bible, in this age, you can have any kind of Bible with all the bells and whistles, hundreds of translations, with different packaging and extras for every type of person. Yet with so many options how do you go about choosing a Bible. Some prefer a heavy and think Bible with loads of notes and commentary, some prefer just the text with no extras. In either case the new The Apologetics Study Bible (Christian Standard Bible) published by Broadman & Holman Publishers is a perfect blend of the two. The new The Apologetics Study Bible (Christian Standard Bible) is what it claims to be, a close minimalist type of Bible, yet it is not so minimalist that it can’t be used for a more indepth study of Scripture. Having the Bible as a hardback with a dustjack-like skin makes this Bible extreamly durable, yet not making it an oversize book. The double column feature is also an added bonus. In addition to the text of scripture itself, the extra features included help make this a true study Bible and not just a refrence Bible. The notes at the bottom of almost every page help the student of scripture understand the cultural context of the passage as well as apply it to their own lives. Furthermore there are a plethora of articles in the back of the Bible which are Apologetically aimed, eg. The Apologetics Bible. Each of these articles are well written as well as having a high application base. In the end the The Apologetics Study Bible (Christian Standard Bible) keeps the traditions of Broadman & Holman Publishers of excellence alive and well.
