A Seasoned Journalist Chases Down the Biggest Story in History 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? Strobel's tough, point-blank questions make this Gold Medallion-winning 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? "Lee Strobel probes with bulldog-like tenacity the evidence for the truth of biblical Christianity." Bruce M. Metzger, Ph.D., Professor of New Testament, Emeritus, Princeton Theological Seminary "Lee Strobel asks the questions a tough-minded skeptic would ask. His book is so good I read it out loud to my wife evenings after dinner. Every inquirer should have it." Phillip E. Johnson, Law Professor, University of California at Berkeley

Compelling read

"It present a compelling case for christianity which, really, should prompt keen readers to investigate further. It basically seeks to raise the fundamental issues of contention against 'christianity' - if I may put it that way. It highlights the fundamental tenets on which christianity is (and was?) built and probes further, asking questions and thinking critically about these tenets from an aethiests point of view. question it seeks to ask are: Did christ exist? Do we have evidence? Is it reliable? How do we know it's reliabile? What are the key theories against this, and why this does or does not support the case for christ. A compelling read for the average idiot or the budding apologetic! Simple and easy to follow. No need for a masters in theology from some divinity college to understand this!"show more
