To help them articulate their beliefs, B&H Publishing Group releases a student edition of their popular Apologetics Study Bible, which has sold more than 115,000 copies. The Apologetics Study Bible for Students gives young people straight answers to the hardest questions being asked of them: “Why do you think Christianity is true?” “Why does God allow evil?” “How can Christians say that Jesus is the only way to God?”
Youth ministry experts say students today simply aren’t well-grounded in the truths of scripture, especially when it comes to answering the toughest questions about Christianity. Edited by Sean McDowell, a well-known teacher of apologetics, the Apologetics Study Bible for Students features more than 120 new articles including personal stories, special features on apologetics and tactics for handling frequently heard anti-Christian arguments. Jeremy Howard serves as the Managing Acquisitions Editor of Bibles, Reference Books, and Commentaries at B&H Publishing Group and is the publisher of The Apologetics Study Bible for Students. He worked alongside the nation’s most notable experts in the field of apologetics in the production of this newest edition.

My Take on the Book
In regards to bibles, I found this text to be a pretty literal translation that is written in a way to draw in the young adult. This translation has a ton of relevant information and stories that it shares to make it readable to young adults as well as facts that try and boggle their minds. I liked the fact that this Bible has a ton of articles built in that are written with the reader in mind. The articles are only one page each so it gives you the run down on everything but also makes you think along the way!
I liked the “Twisted Scripture” notes and found them to be particularly interesting for me and I would guess for young readers for whom the Bible is intended.
Overall, I would highly recommend this study Bible to people who want to get to know the Bible more and relate better to the words professed within, regardless of age.
