The Case for Christ: A Journalist's Personal Investigation of the Evidence for Jesus

Front Cover
Zondervan, Sep 9, 2008 - Religion - 304 pages

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 Brandies who are recognized authorities in their fields. Strobel challenges them with questions like How reliable is the New Testament? Does evidence exist for Jesus outside the Bible? Is there any reason to believe the resurrection was an actual event? Strobel's tough, point-blank questions make this remarkable book read 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. What will your verdict be in The Case for Christ?

Exciting and educational read

User Review  - CJGeorge -

This book was educational without being boring. It dispels some of the myths that as Christians we may have come to believe and settles doubts about the authenticity of the Resurrection and Gospels. I would highly recommend it for anyone who may have doubts. Read full review
