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

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chris Rau | 2/14/2014

    " Simply put, I don't believe him. There is no way he was an atheist when he set out to write this book. I read this book hoping for some answers to some of my own questions and it turns out, this book is just a mouthpiece for Christianity from the get go. I was often frustrated when OBVIOUS follow-up questions were just left unsaid. He only interviews Christians and never skeptics. It was just intellectually dishonest. I feel like I was duped. Don't waste your time if you are honestly looking for an impartial exploration of this subject. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jana | 2/13/2014

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

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stephen Jones | 2/12/2014

    " Entirely one sided argument . . . and Strobel calls himself a journalist "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vince | 2/9/2014

    " Mr. Strobel does what good investigative reporters do -- Go to the experts and ask hard questions. It is a good book for people who want insights into how one answers the hard questions directed at Christianity in recent centuries. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mackenzie | 2/6/2014

    " I am in love with this series... A journalist investigates the historical evidence for Jesus Christ. Wow. A must read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Josh | 1/15/2014

    " Well edited/written except for internal logical contradictions. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Melissa Wilkinson | 1/14/2014

    " lame. he has no case. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cofemale | 1/2/2014

    " Just like his book A Case for a Creator... this book makes the case that Christ existed. Another must read by Lee. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Estevan Alvarado | 12/28/2013

    " Strobel interviews 12 scholars on the evidence of Jesus Christ (hence the Case for Christ). This book and evidence makes a strong case for the Jesus Christ, Lord and Savior. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 12/9/2013

    " Excellent book - makes you think objectively about the bible and its authenticity. A new way to experience old beliefs :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heila | 11/27/2013

    " Amazing, his exploration as an investigative journalist. He's respectful, but hardheaded in his approach to finding out the truth about Jesus. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kyle | 10/16/2013

    " A somewhat surprisingly strong intro to the principle issues of historical Christian apologetics. Strobel's journalist style and approachable manner make it a great book to recommend to almost anyone wanting a good start in this field. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Madeline Ellis | 7/28/2013

    " good little book written by a journalist who wanted to answer some of his sceptical questions about jesus, who he was etc. it had a lot of neat little facts and good explanations for things you may have had questions about jesus too.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda Hoover | 7/9/2013

    " An excellent apologetic for the Christian faith. Clear and concise, it follows a logical course from beginning to end. An excellent read!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan Bates | 6/30/2013

    " very easy read, a great overview of all the work and thinking out there for the evidence of the historical jesus and his divinity. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carl | 6/16/2012

    " I've not always trusted my emotional responses to Jesus, so books that contain research and lay out the logic behind my faith are very important. This book led me to several other resources, all of them helping to strengthen my belief. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Connie | 6/14/2012

    " Made a believer out of me from an intellectual standpoint. It's a quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dj | 6/10/2012

    " 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. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tammie | 3/16/2012

    " I can't get into it. I think it's weak. I don't know, I just like Josh McDowell's apologetics better. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Corey Elliott | 1/4/2012

    " Poor scholarship "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann Heidesch | 12/12/2011

    " I liked this, somewhat simplistic, but has many good points. "

  • 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. "
