I’m very impressed with this study Bible for students. It is peppered throughout with many, many articles that tackle tough questions in a straightforward manner. There are also focused sections throughout this Bible that cover “Twisted Scripture”. These sections cover various scriptures that people take out of context and twist for their own uses. I like the way these sections point back to and explain the way the scripture is being misused, then clearly helps the reader to uncover what the intended meaning is. The “Bones and Dirt” sections are also interesting and highlight archeological evidence throughout the scripture.
Two other helpful note sections that can be found throughout this Bible are the Fast Facts section and the Challenge and Tactics sections. The Fast Facts sections simply give facts about certain beliefs in a quick reference area. The Challenge and Tactics sections are helpful areas for students to view a question or challenge to something in the Bible. These are statements that the students will likely face from nonbelievers who are trying to confuse the student. These sections help point out the tactics being used to confuse the situation and point to whatever fallacy the argument is based on. Very illuminating!
This Bible is packed with helpful guidance and answers to confusing and difficult questions, always pointing to scripture to back those answers up.
I received a complimentary copy of this Bible. All opinions are my own.
