Got this in an email marketing it to me... Sounds interesting, if maybe a bit introductory.

An Apologetics Commentary That Defends the Faith
The Holman Apologetics Commentary is quite different from verse-by-verse commentaries. The HCSB Study Bible editor, Dr. Jeremy Howard, recruited 4 of the world's top Bible scholars for this work. These theologians were given an index of verses known to be relevant to the topics of apologetics and biblical reliability. They focused their comments to these verses, plus any others that they recognized as crucial to defending the Christian faith.

In most cases, you'll notice that each commentary note begins by stating the challenges in the text at hand as a critic would state them. This approach takes opposing viewpoints head-on to ensure that you feel the full weight of the challenge. The authors then systematically address each challenge and describe solutions that support the faith and align with a high view of Scripture. This means these evangelical scholars are committed to biblical accuracy and the inerrancy of the Bible.

For Better Preaching, Teaching, and Witnessing
An excellent example of this can be found with John 1:1, a crucial text I'm sure you are familiar with: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

The Holman Apologetics Commentary gives a brilliant defense of this verse, showing how cults like the Jehovah's Witnesses have mistranslated this important text as "and the word was a god." This false translation can mislead people into denying the Trinity. When you read Holman's detailed and precise defense of this verse, you will come away with indisputable proof and confidence in the Lordship of Christ and the solid doctrine of the Trinity. Best of all, you'll understand this truth in a way you can teach and share with anyone.

This is just one example of how The Holman Apologetics Commentary takes on every passage that is difficult or has been used by others to question and confuse people into false belief
