About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Apologetics Study Bible for Students- Guidance to Help Articulate Your Faith AND Giveaway!!!

And the randomly selected winner is.... Chana!!!!! Congratulations, Chana!!

My Thoughts:

The Apologetics Study Bible for Students is absolutely wonderful. I can't say enough about it- but I'm certainly going to try. Let me begin by telling you that I'm on a quest to read it thoroughly from front to back. The engaging features scattered throughout are so interesting and informative that I want to read them all- twice! While perusing the pages, my daughters and I felt guided, strengthened and more confident in the articulation of our faith. Oh, and don't let "for students" mislead you. It's not just for teens! We're all students when it comes to learning about the word of God. Can I get an Amen? 

The purpose of the Apologetics Study Bible for Students is "to put a tool in your hands that will help you find answers to some of the toughest questions about God, science, ethics, world religions, and Christian living." And it does just that. Take a peek below...

A Few Features of The Apologetics Study Bible for Students HCSB:
Book Introductions for each of the sixty-six books of the Bible. I really enjoyed this section as it provided so much information! It includes a synopsis, author's name, date written, and a timeline of what was happening in the world. Fascinating!
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. Ex. What does the Bible say about cloning? How do we know God is real? What does the Bible say about Same-Sex marriage?
60 Twisted Scriptures address ways that various religious movements distort Scripture to support doctrine contrary to historic Christian teaching.
I also enjoyed...

- 50 Bone and Dirt sections which feature important archaeological finds relating to both Old and New Testaments to build confidence on the reliability of Scripture.
- 25 Tactics portions equip readers to withstand opposition to Christianity by outlining tactics and strategies for handling frequently heard anti-Christian arguments. One of my favorite parts of this Bible. "Remember, the point of apologetics is not to win an argument but to win a person to Christ."
- 20 Personal Stories showing how God has powerfully worked in people's lives. So encouraging!

Give Your Student the Gift of Confidence

The gift of confident faith…it’s available to all of us.  But as general editor, Sean McDowell notes in his introduction to the Apologetics Study Bible for Students, there are sometimes hard questions that need answers in order for us to have a Confident Faith.  That is why B&H Publishing Group partnered with Sean and a host of talented contributors to create The Apologetics Study Bible for Students.  To encourage readers who have real questions by offering straight answers in hope that they will develop a stronger, more confident faith.
This Summer we are celebrating the gift of Confident Faith 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.  New resources every week–and a full 16 weeks of resources when it is all done.  The videos and resources are ideal for youth leaders to share with their students and kick off 16 weeks of thought-provoking, confident faith building discussions.  This week’s resource is below–and if you are discovering us a little late, you can catch up in our archive.
We are even offering a Confident Faith Sweepstakes to give away Bibles, free mini libraries of our best apologetics resource and even a trip for two to the National Conference on Christian Apologetics (NCCA) where some of the world’s leading thinkers will offer insights and teaching.   We invite you to join us in tackling the tough questions…and if you know of a friend who might be encouraged by these resources, invite them as well.
