Editor's Note

Expert reportage…

Strobel approaches the son of God with expert reportage from scientific and philosophical angles, ultimately carving out his own path from skeptic to believer.

Description

Is there credible evidence that Jesus of Nazareth really is the son of God?

Retracing his own spiritual journey from atheism to faith, Lee Strobel, former legal editor of the Chicago Tribune, cross-examines a dozen experts with doctorates from schools like Cambridge, Princeton, and Brandeis who are recognized authorities in their own fields.

Strobel challenges them with questions like: How reliable is the New Testament? Does evidence for Jesus exist outside the Bible? Is there any reason to believe the resurrection was an actual event?

In this winner of the Gold Medallion Book Award and two-time nominee for the Christian Book of the Year Award, Strobel's tough, point-blank questions play like a captivating, fast-paced novel. But it's not fiction. It's a riveting quest for the truth about history's most compelling figure.

The new edition includes scores of revisions and additions, including updated material on archaeological and manuscript discoveries, fresh recommendations for further study, and an interview with the author that tells dramatic stories about the book's impact, provides behind-the-scenes information, and responds to critiques of the book by skeptics. This updated edition will prove even more valuable to contemporary listeners.

    When a prominent journalist decides to prove his wife's faith is based on myth and superstition, he digs deeper and deeper into the study of the Bible and the historical records. What he finds changes his life and his marriage. Based on a true story, this book has also been made into a movie.

    I have read this book before, and probably will again. Strobel presents evidence for Christ and the resurrection that changed his mind and had him converting from an atheist to a Christian. Sometimes it is not bad to be reminded!
  • (4/5)
    An excellent book. There is much evidence that can help one when thinking through the rational basis for Christian faith. However some books on this subject are very detailed and heavy reading. This one is very well written and easy to read. His arguments are clear and well portrayed. It is fascinating to follow Lee Strobel's personal journey from atheism to faith. Lee Strobel, with a Master of Studies in Law Degree from Yale Law School, was an award winning journalist at the Chicago tribune.
  • (4/5)
    A very good exploration into the historical evidence that Jesus really was who he claimed to be. In it, Strobel interviews Biblical experts and challenges them to prove that Jesus is the Messiah. He is thorough and unyielding in these interviews, challenging the texts themselves, the witnesses, the death of Jesus, and all points in between.I would recommend this to anyone who really wants to know if the claims of the Bible are true. I'm sure those who are determined to not believe will find a reason to, but those with more open minds will at very least find the claims of Christianity are a little more credible than they may have first thought.
