The Apologetics Study Bible (Christian Standard Bible) is a revised and updated version of their classic study Bible filled with apologetics footnotes, articles, biographies, book summaries, and key Scriptures that have been twisted and misused by Christian and non-Christian groups.
The quantity of contributing authors and the quantity of articles is a major plus to the Apologetics Study Bible. In areas where there is room for interpretation within the orthodox Christian faith, the authors by-in-large do a great job of briefly presenting multiple views in a balanced and relatively non-biased view.
Some of the topics brought up in the Study Bible are more areas that seem to be targeting current hot topics (i.e. Climate Change) and risk making the resource one that could become outdated as the hot topic cools. Another area that could have been a bit stronger is the dealing with areas within the orthodox Christian faith that seemed a bit picked-on (i.e. Lord’s Table every Sunday or not) even if done so without condemning a stance the editors didn’t prefer.
Overall, the Bible is a good resource worth keeping to reference when certain hot topics come up in gospel conversations.
