I get quite a few requests to review items on my blog - some jump out at me and some don't. This one, however, was one that I truly hoped I'd make it on the blog review team. The Apologetics Study Bible for Students is one I wish we'd had when my boys were younger. One of my sons has been deep into theology and apologetics since he could read - he just devoured anything on these topics and he would have thoroughly enjoyed this Bible as a reference tool he could sink his teeth into! The articles in the Bible (120 of them) are written by some of today's leading Christian thinkers and they deal with some of the big questions - Homosexuality, Yoga, New Age Movement, Cloning, Gambling, Scientology, Rape and Incest and more. The articles are thoughtful and well-written and give our teens some great topics to ponder. The Bible is created to be appealing to teens - both the design and layout. We also thought the Twisted Scripture articles were great! These are written to discuss topics that current religious movements use to twist Scripture and go against historic Christian teaching. This is another area where we want to strengthen our kids' faith in the world in which we live.
The other thing we loved about this Bible is the resource library of videos online. There are videos still yet to be added - but some there already as well that answer the tough questions in video format - you can stream them or download them OR even share to social media. I was excited with the quality of the videos and the topics they covered. http://www.apologeticsbible.com/video-archive/
