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.

    One of a series includingThe Case for the Real JesusThe Case for a CreatorThe Case for Faith
  • (4/5)
    The author builds a strong case that Christ was a real person and actually performed miracles.
  • (4/5)
    Sounded like it'd be "investigative", but seemed more the author lobbing himself softballs, and cheering himself on hitting them out of the park. Having said that, it was a fairly enjoyable read, and I've got Case for Faith on my stack to read. And the closing few pages were worth the rest of the book, IMO.
  • (4/5)
    I am already a Christian, so I don't know if this book would have compelled me to believe in Christ or not. However, Strobel investigates the claims about who Jesus was and the circumstances surrounding his death and resurrection in an objective manner. The resurrection of course is the single most important event in history, so knowing how we know that those testimonies are true is pretty compelling.
  • (3/5)
    This was one of the first books I read in 2002 as God starting working His power in my life. It encouraged and emboldened me. The chapter on the death and subsequent resurrection were informative, sobering and comforting. It is a great book to give to an unbeliever who will take the time to read it.
  • (4/5)
    It accomlishes what it set out to do. It's an easy way to get an overview of the questions that often come up when talking about the historical realities of the death/life of JC. This stuff is not really my bag, but for what it is it's great.
