Has modern scholarship debunked the traditional Christ? Has the church suppressed the truth about Jesus to advance its own agenda? What if the real Jesus is far different from the atoning Savior worshipped through the centuries? In The Case for the Real Jesus, former award-winning legal editor Lee Strobel explores such hot-button questions as: • Did the church suppress ancient non-biblical documents that paint a more accurate picture of Jesus than the four Gospels? • Did the church distort the truth about Jesus by tampering with early New Testament texts? • Do new insights and explanations finally disprove the resurrection? • Have fresh arguments disqualified Jesus from being the Messiah? • Did Christianity steal its core ideas from earlier mythology? Evaluate the arguments and evidence being advanced by prominent atheists, liberal theologians, Muslim scholars, and others. Sift through expert testimony. Then reach your own verdict in The Case for the Real Jesus. Download and start listening now!

    " I had questions. I had DOUBTS.....not anymore. It all makes sense. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joe | 2/14/2014

    " I just stumbled into it and it look interesting. I will write more after I read it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenna Leigh | 2/10/2014

    " I'm a huge fan of Lee Strobel's work, and this book is no exception. I thought the way he presented the flaws in the Jesus Seminar's methods was well done, and would help someone who has been confused by their claims. It does a good job of exposing the problems with many the recent attempts to discover the "Real" Jesus. I would definitely recommend this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Max Todd | 2/5/2014

    " Hard to refute the who Jesus really is through this investigation. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kessia Reyne | 2/1/2014

    " Strobel does it again: using his interview format to delve into the questions facing Christian apologists today. Only this time, I wasn't quite as impressed. The book is pretty strong in the first half especially, but too often takes a dismissive tone when addressing the opposing viewpoint--to the point that I'd hesitate to share this with a non-believer. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 1/29/2014

    " Evidence presented in a way interesting enough to hold on to a reader to the end "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan | 1/28/2014

    " Great book for those who question if claims by James Cameron and Dan Brown have any significance. Not for the faint of faith though. Be prepare to have your traditions challenged. I really enjoyed it. Again, Lee explained why I believe what I believe. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Georgianne Potts | 1/20/2014

    " I was a believer before, but this was a convincing book written by an athiest, journalist who became a believer after researching for this book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Curtis | 12/30/2013

    " I like the way Strobel writes, but I wasn't as impressed with this book as with his first book in the "Case For" series. Mostly because the first one was a book his started writing as an atheist and changed as he researched and wrote it. This is still good, though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alan | 12/23/2013

    " Excellent elementary apologetic book. Strobel is always excellent at reliably presenting material from leading scholars and common objections to Christianity. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren | 12/23/2013

    " In some ways, this could be seen as a Part II of Case for Christ. Lee Strobel tackles some of the more recent false beliefs about Jesus. It reads like a series of interviews. Strobel does a good job at finding people who know what they're talking about. An admirable addition to the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amber | 12/21/2013

    " Strobel does a great job of searching out real scholars that know their 'stuff'. This book is certainly written to appeal to the general public but it has a scholarly undertone throughout. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kay Pierce | 12/11/2013

    " Great read. Author Lee Strobel gives a clear investigative research. Though I was already a believer it continued to affirm my faith. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel Alvers | 9/12/2011
