Publisher Description

A seasoned journalist chases down the biggest story in history.

The Project: Determine if there's credible evidence that Jesus of Nazareth really is the Son of God. The Reporter: Lee Strobel, educated at Yale Law School, award-winning former legal editor of the Chicago Tribune--with a background of atheism. The Experts: A dozen scholars, with doctorates from Cambridge, Princeton, Brandeis, and other top-flight institutions, who are recognized authorities on Jesus. The Story: Retracing his own spiritual journey, Strobel cross-examines the experts with tough, point-blank questions:

  • 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 historical event?

This audio adaptation of Lee Strobel's remarkable Gold Medallion Award-winning book packs the energy of 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?

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "
