Chances are these statistics don’t surprise you.
Multiple research studies have shown that spiritual focus often weakens among teenagers as they head into the attention-dividing realm of young adulthood.  Up to 66 percent of them leave church altogether.  The Apologetics Study Bible for Students HCSB works against that trend by helping anchor younger Christians in the truths of Scripture, equipping them with thoughtful and practical responses for whenever the core issues of their faith and life are challenged, while helping them better articulate their beliefs with non-believers.  A Confident Faith – isn’t that something we all strive to have!!!  I know I do!!! 
A Few Features of The Apologetics Study Bible for Students HCSB:
– Book Introductions for each of the sixty-six books of the Bible.
– Study Notes provide evidence of the reliability and truthfulness of Scripture.
– 120 Articles written by today‘s leading Christian thinkers dealing with life’s ultimate questions.
– 60 Twisted Scriptures address ways that various religious movements distort Scripture to support doctrine contrary to historic Christian teaching.
Also, this summer, the gift of Confident Faith is being celebrated with 16 brand new, but energetic and brief videos featuring Sean McDowell, free resources like Bible studies and articles as well as wonderful specials on apps and Bibles.  There are new resources every week – a full 16 weeks of resources when it is all done.  AND, if that weren’t enough, a Confident Faith Sweepstakes is being offered to give away Bibles, free mini libraries of B&H’s best apologetics resources and even a trip for two to the National Conference on Christian Apologetics (NCCA) being held October 16-17, 2015 in Charlotte, NC where some of the world’s leading thinkers will offer insights and teaching. 
With so much being offered, what did I think?
Well, I brought in an additional reviewer for this one. My son, Brian, is at that age where his faith is going to be tested. This summer we’re going through a series about the seed. If he hasn’t rooted Himself deep into the soil, the world will take him away. My husband and I have given him nearly all the resources we know to help him choose Christ on a daily basis. His school works hard on teaching apologetics as even Christian schools are more about the world and less about living for Christ.
Here is what Brian, 17, had to say:

“I really like this Bible because it’s way more than just Scripture. All too often scripture gets ‘twisted’ with man’s interpretation, so I like the aspect of unwinding it and really getting into what the author means and who the audience is. I love the page before each book of the background of the author, what’s happening in the time period, and when they wrote it. I love the study aspect of the Bible, instead of just reading it and getting nothing out of it.”

From a teenaged boy, that’s pretty high praise.

And I can only add to it. I’ve referred to this Bible several times as I’ve started using Bible mapping/verse mapping. I can get more information than ever with the book introductions, articles, notes and “twisted” Scriptures. I found this Bible completely relevant for the times we’re in, and not just for students. Too many adults um and ah their way through why they believe what they believe. The other religions and organizations out there are well versed. Why aren’t we as the Body of Christ?

I believe the Apologetics Study Bible is the key to confidence and growth in Christ.

I HIGHLY recommend.  So much so that [tweetthis]I am able to give ONE COPY of the Apologetics Study Bible away! #FlyBy #apologetics[/tweetthis]

    I’d like to read the extra information, I’d like my own personal hardcopy Bible instead of the phone
