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?

Winner of the Gold Medallion Book Award and twice nominated for the Christian Book of the Year Award, Strobel’s tough, point-blank questions 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.

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. As The Case for Christ and its ancillary resources approach 10 million copies in print, this updated edition will prove even more valuable to contemporary readers.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa S. | 2/18/2014

    " This book is what answered all my Christianity questions that no one else could seem to answer (at least not in a way that satisified me!). This book was LIFE CHANGING for me! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 L.T. Ville | 2/16/2014

    " I thought this book was interesting. It kept me entertained. I wouldn't read it again, but it wasn't a bad book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eladio | 2/13/2014

    " An awesome book, by a former atheist who today is a leading expert in the field of apologetics. A must read for any Christian desiring to solidify their faith and further prepare themselves in defense of the Gospel. An absolute read for anyone who still doubts that Jesus Christ is who He says he was! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Bratkeeper | 1/31/2014

    " Lee Strobel's attitude sucks. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jon Mamaril | 1/31/2014

    " a good book on Apologetics - Lee Strobel is a good Apologetic "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ted Way | 1/26/2014

    " I read this sophomore year in college, and it was one of the best Christian books I've read up to that point. Strobel's investigative journalist pace and tone made it a great read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keith | 1/22/2014

    " Well written and well thought out. Good book! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 M. Lawrence | 1/22/2014

    " Decent presentation of the evidence for Christ being who He said He was, showing Christianity's historical and logical and prophetic foundations. However, it presented itself as an objective journalistic account, which it most definitely was not (Strobel was already a Christian when he wrote it, for starters). The interviews felt set up and canned, with the questions and the answers laid out perfectly to make the point the author was going for. I don't think this would be very convincing for skeptics, or even for those searching, but it's hard for me to say, as I speak from the perspective of a lifelong believer. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rana | 1/18/2014

    " Sorry, this is one of my least favorites. I didn't care for the lawyer approach on this. I couldn't even finish it as it just didn't reasonate with me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 zltg | 1/9/2014

    " Offers a unique perspective to the understanding of Christianity. But the perspective is anything but neutral: the book is blatantly biased and unconvincing. Still, it's a well-written book with well-organized and well-presented arguments. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bailey | 1/3/2014

    " Amazing Book, I keep re-reading it every year!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scarlett Yates | 12/17/2013

    " that Jesus Christ undoubtedly was exactly who He said He was. And if He was who He said He was, there is no more debate. We then have to repent and believe and know that it is only because of HIS blood that we can then enter the kingdom of heaven. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Daniel | 12/3/2013

    " I didn't really finish this one- I didn't like it that much because he wasn't as convincing as everyone claimed. that was several years ago, maybe I should go back and give it another chance. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emma | 12/1/2013

    " A great reading for those who want to be a disciple for Christ, also a great study book for adult Bible class. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ryan Kirkish | 11/22/2013

    " If you think ignorance is bliss you will love this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kindra | 10/1/2013

    " If you are interested in learning reliable information, facts, and perspectives on Christianity not commonly presented by the media, look no further. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 DeAnna | 9/10/2013

    " Great convincing journalism, however I didn't need convincing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Curt | 5/31/2013

    " I picked this book up two years ago and read the Introduction and thought it was boring...but then I picked it up again and BAM! I read the whole book in 48 hours.... it was a page-turner- like following a journalist/lawyer trying to prove/disprove Jesus. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dick | 3/8/2013

    " Good read - written by a former aethiest "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alec | 1/1/2013

    " Fascinating, strong recommendation for everyone and anyone "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dj | 10/14/2012

    " I'm having a hard time with this book - he doesn't substantiate his findings. As a journalist, I find it disheartening that he assumes the reader is ignorant. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel2 | 10/8/2012

    " Ok book, but he starts with too many givens. Could have been better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 9/27/2012

    " Just a really great story to read over and over!!! "

    " Starting to read this one this week for a small group/Bible study. Looking forward to it as I have enjoyed other Lee Strobel books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Richard Stevens | 1/16/2012

    " A good primer for how evangelicals re-orient their views in a more positive manner. The author is very persuasive. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Meagan | 12/26/2011

    " Eh....next time I read a book that examines historical evidence on the existence/divinity of Jesus, I won't read one written by a born-again! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bruce Brown | 11/25/2011

    " Gerat book! Lee really thinks through the questions that need to be answered about Jesus "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 8/31/2011

    " Christian. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Allison | 6/28/2011

    " Great evidence to support one's faith or encourage one who is seeking. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeff | 5/8/2011

    " Actually read this after I read "Case for Faith." Lee Strobel writes a good book as he goes around interviewing some great Christian men and women, and making... well, a case for Jesus Christ as the Messiah. I couldn't put it down. Again, a must read for every Christian. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yolanda | 5/8/2011

    " Highly recommended for believers and atheists! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Greg | 5/7/2011

    " Hokum and pseudo science, rife with quote mining and "experts" giving testimony outside of their field of expertise. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dani | 4/29/2011

    " I read this book a while ago, but I still remember the lack of supporting evidence and weak journalism. I have no interest in rereading it :)! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 4/27/2011

    " Wow! Great Story of Lee's personal search. I highly recommend it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keith | 4/17/2011

    " Well written and well thought out. Good book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tobie | 4/1/2011

    " I've turned to this book, and the two others by Strobel, when I've hit rough patches and needed to be convinced that God is really there. This book is compelling, well-written, and just makes me feel better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 D_Davis | 3/23/2011

    " I like Strobel more than I like the book. The book is just really light Christian apologetics.

    Strobel's television interview show, Faith Under Fire, however was brilliant. One of the smartest and most interesting television shows I've seen. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ameerah | 3/22/2011

    " Most tedious book I have ever tried to read, I probably won't even finish it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 3/7/2011

    " So far, I really am loving this book :)One that I think everyone should read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eli | 3/5/2011

    " A powerful and enjoyable presentation of the case for Jesus Christ. A must read for all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jana | 2/27/2011

    " A bit gruesome and graphic, but well worth it. "
