Publisher: Broadman & Holman

The Apologetics Study Bible reveals flaws in today’s bizarre worldviews while it helps you grasp the depth of biblical insight on each and every issue. More than 100 articles relate biblical truth to science, history, archaeology, psychology, philosophy, and other critical subjects.

See how the Apologetics Study Bible looks in The Bible Study App in this short video.

Also included is the HCSB translation. Strategically placed alongside the text of Scripture, this expert commentary includes:

  • "How Does Christianity Relate to Hinduism?" by renowned apologist Ravi Zacharias;
  • "Is There Evidence for Life After Death?" by Christian Research Institute founder Hank Hanegraaff;
  • "Evolution: Fact or Fantasy?" by Phillip E. Johnson, author of Darwin on Trial;
  • "How Should a Christian Relate to Culture?" by Prison Fellowship founder and president Chuck Colson;
  • "Are Jesus’ Claims Unique Among the Religions of the World?" by Liberty University professor Gary Habermas;
  • "Does the Design Argument Show There Is a God?" by philosopher William Dembski;
  • "How Apologetics Changed My Life!" by best-selling author Lee Strobel.

Profiles of key historic defenders of the faith like Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, Anselm, Augustine, Joseph Butler, William Paley, Blaise Pascal, and C. S. Lewis highlight the clear-headed thinking Christians through the centuries have brought to bear on objections to faith. A generous helping of study notes clarifies the biblical worldview demonstrated in Scripture. The text is the remarkably accurate and inviting Holman Christian Standard Bible® translation. And features like book introductions, end-of-verse cross references, topical subheads, the words of Christ in red, and a detailed concordance make it simple to get the most from your Bible study time.

Philosopher and Apologetics Study Bible general editor Ted Cabal observes that we live "in the golden era of Christian apologetics." There has never before been so much scientific, archaeological, and historical support for the unique truth of biblical Christianity. The Apologetics Study Bible will open your eyes to new reasons to believe, a stronger commitment to faith, and better ways to witness for the Creator of it all.
