A CBA Bestseller, A New York Times Bestselling Author -- Today, the traditional picture of Jesus is under an intellectual onslaught from many quarters. They're capturing the public's imagination with a radical new portrait of Jesus that bears scant resemblance to the picture historically embraced by the church. How persuasive is this new image of Jesus? Is it based on well-supported facts and arguments -- or does it fade away when exposed to the hot light of scrutiny? In this dramatic investigation, award-winning writer and former legal editor Lee Strobel explores these controversial questions and others. Evaluate the evidence for yourself as leading experts grapple with the latest objection from today's foremost critics. Then reach your own verdict. Lee Strobel, with a journalism degree from the University of Missouri and a master of studies in law degree from Yale Law School, was the award-winning legal editor of the Chicago Tribune and a spiritual skeptic until 1981. His books include Four Gold Medallion winners and the 2005 Christian Book of the Year (co-authored with Garry Poole). He and his wife live in California.
