The Apologetics Study Bible


The Apologetics Study Bible is a unique resource designed to help people answer important and life-shaping questions. It provides this wealth of knowledge in one place enabling readers to know the reasons and evidences for the Christian hope and to articulate those reasons to others asking big questions.

Human beings are the only creatures who ask questions. Major questions.

  • Can I know that God exists?
  • Am I the product of a blind evolutionary process or was I created by God?
  • How strong is the evidence for Jesus’ resurrection?
  • Is the Bible reliable and true?
  • Do I have a destiny beyond my life on earth?
  • Can evil be reconciled with belief in God who is both all-powerful and all-loving?

Crafted by real people like you who have wrestled with the same questions and doubts you are facing now, the material in The Apologetics Study Bible features some of the leading thinkers of the twenty-first century, including Craig Blomberg, Darrel Bock, Charles Colson, Paul Copan, William Lane Craig, William Dembski, John Frame, Norman L. Geisler, Gary Habermas, Hank Hanegraaff, Philip E. Johnson, Walt Kaiser, Al Mohler, John Warwick Montgomery, J. P. Moreland, Thomas Schreiner, Ravi Zacharias, and many more.
