    I purchased the HCSB Apologetics Study Bible because I wanted a literally translated Bible with the advertised features of this volume. What I got is a Bible that is put together very well. The binding and cover are easily worth the price, and the many, strategically placed articles and commentary is just what I was looking for. For these features, I could easily give this Bible a five-star rating.

    However, the downside is in the writing style. While the translation may be very close to a formal word-for-word format, the HCSB I purchased reads like The Message; something I consider an abomination to the senses of anyone with the ability to take advantage of the apologetic features in this Bible. By example, I refer to Matthew 6:16—“I assure you: They\’ve got their reward!\” They\’ve “GOT” their reward? Seriously? \”They\’ve\” is a contraction of \”They\” and \”have.\” It\’s improper to say \”They have got,\” and it\’s certainly an affront to proper grammar to write, \”They\’ve got!\” What\’s wrong with writing \”They have their reward?\” It works for other translations, why not here? Unfortunately, because the folks at Holman chose to talk down to its readership, I can only give the writing style a one-star rating, for a combined score of three stars. Too bad.

    The Apologetics Study Bible, in Black Genuine Leather, HCSB Translation, is not Your Usual Study Bible.
    Most people assume all study Bibles to be pretty much alike. If you get one with a person’s name on it, more than likely, it will reflect that person’s theology. If it doesn’t have someone’s name on it, then it is usually an eclectic grab bag of information. Well, “The Apologetics Study Bible” is not your average study Bible. Instead of just tossing in an abundance of information in some haphazard fashion or having one group’s theological presuppositions espoused, it systematically provides specific information about, the scripture, ethics, science, archaeology, philosophy, and non-Christian belief systems. It does it in a very thoughtful manner. I found the sections called, “twisted scripture” to be very helpful.
    Just the list of contributors on this one had me sold on the idea; Albert Mohler, Ravi Zacharias, Phil Johnson, Chuck Colson, Norm Geisler, Josh McDowell, J. P. Moreland, and Hank Hanegraaff. Not to mention the features; the easy to read HCSB text, presentation page, the two-color page layout for contrast, introductions and book outlines to each Bible book that focus on apologetics, double-column paragraph format in black 10 point text, translation footnotes, study notes that explain “problem” passages, sidebars on scriptures misused by cults, (twisted scripture) profiles of historic Christian apologists from Justin Martyr to C. S. Lewis, plan of salvation, lined pages for recording personal notes, silver page edges, 5 full color maps, charts, and two ribbon markers, make this an excellent choice for the student polishing up their apologetics chops. This Bible lives up to the name, “The Apologetics Bible.”
    Every believer is called to give an answer for the hope that they have, we are supposed to evangelize, and make disciples. This Bible definitely will help with the Great Commission. Everyone should have a copy of this to refer to. It puts some of the most expertly done work at your disposal.
    This Bible was shipped to me in a cardboard box padded with paper. It arrived undamaged and in good condition. It was packaged in a two piece retail box that should be retained for storage. The Apologetics Study Bible is 9 1/2″ x 7 1/4” x 1 1/2” it has a genuine leather cover. The cover is what you would expect from a genuine leather cover. It is made from pigskin leather. It is a bit shiny compared to calfsplit or cowhide leather, but not near as pricey, while offering superior quality to most synthetics and bonded leather covers. The corners are machine cut, formed, and glued, so they are nice and uniform. It is case bound with a sewn binding. There are decorative head and tail bands. The page gilt and stamp work is done in silver. The font is uniformly inked and printed. It is 10 point in size and is easy on the eyes. The coloring of some of the elements on the page can be a bit distracting if you are a purist. The paper seems to be opaque enough. The study attributes of this Bible are the big features. You are getting a lot for your money. This Bible is a great value.
