Apologetics is a topic within Christian theology that many try to avoid, but it is all something that we are called to in one way or another. We get this mandate directly from 1 Peter 3:15 which states, “but in your hearts regard Christ the Lord as holy, ready at any time to give a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you”. The Apologetics Study Bible is a great tool to help all of us answer questions on the Christian faith.
The study Bible is published by B&H and utilizes the new translation known as the Christian Standard Bible. It is not the purpose of this article to critique the CSB, but I have done so in a previous post which you can read here.
The apologetics portion of the Bible consists of several articles that are spread throughout the book. There is no shortage of articles as the book contains topics such as “What does the Bible teach about angels”, “What does the Bible say about Euthanasia?”, and “What are the three laws of logic?” The book is evangelical in nature, and the articles are written by some leading apologists such as Dr. Gary Habermas, Norman Geisler, and Ravi Zacharias. Overall the book is good for anyone that wants a down to basics view on basic Christian doctrine. Highly recommended just for the articles alone.
