 The Apologetics Study Bible for Students is a comprehensive guide to the Bible. What I appreciated most were the questions and answers. For example, right away in Genesis comes the question, "How old is the earth?" It was handled in a way that Christians of all denominations could be satisfied. Another notable feature is the inclusion of sixty examples of twisted or distorted Scripture passages. It's not only appropriate for students diving deeper into the Bible, but for adults seeking to learn more. After all, aren't we all students? I love Apologetics, because it's a very logical way to approach faith, and that appeals to the math side of me. This Bible really does a good job of going beyond just the Word to provide deeper insight, thereby providing a stronger, more confident faith.

This summer, the gift of Confident Faith is being celebrated 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. In addition, a Confident Faith Sweepstakes is being offered to give away Bibles, free mini libraries of B&H's best apologetics resources and even a trip for two to the National Conference on Christian Apologetics (NCCA) being held October 16-17, 2015 in Charlotte, NC where some of the world's leading thinkers will offer insights and teaching.

The videos cover some pretty pertinent topics - is it ok to doubt, the Bible's view of women, homosexuality. I thought they were handled quite well, and even if your personal viewpoint differs from that of the videos, it's really a good idea to have a fully informed opinion by listening to rational arguments from the opposite side as well. Sean McDowell is an energetic educator and author who isn't afraid to tackle the tough questions.
I have a chance to give away a copy of The Apologetics Bible. To enter, leave a comment with your toughest faith question you'd hope to see answered. Deadline is July 29th.
