Introduction

Readers of this review site will be very familiar with Ray Comfort as I have reviewed a number of his books and documentaries and even had the pleasure of interviewing him. You can find all of those articles here.

Summary

Ray has used the New King James Version translation as the basis for this particular “study Bible.” What sets this particular Bible apart from others is the (almost) countless helps for evangelism, open-air preaching, and apologetics found on nearly every page throughout the Bible.

Review

Though I am not as much of an open-air preacher as I am one-on-one, this resource is an excellent starting point for the new Christian with questions that he or she is unable to answer. Furthermore, this resource is a one-stop shop so to speak for those who do like to discuss their faith but are unable to answer specific questions from unbelieving family and friends.

The table of contents page is listed topically and alphabetically for quick reference. The contents are further divided into apologetics  and common questions and objections. The apologetics section includes such as evolution/creation, training children, religion (think world religions) and evangelism aids all of which are concise and powerful suggestions for getting beyond the debate quickly.

The common questions and objections are divided into doctrinal and practical categories.From God and Jesus to Sin, the Bible and Excuses. This section has specific Bible references for the student to be able to study and become familiar with in order to keep the conversation centered on Scripture.

Recommendation

In the end, this is a well-written and well-organized resource that I wish I had when I first became a Christian. Now, years later, I have found that I would have saved a ton of time and money by having this one resource! The Evidence Bible is a must own study Bible for high school and college students and any Christian who intends to be vocal about their faith (which should be every Christian!).  I highly commend it to you.
