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.


With the dramatic scenario of an investigative journalist pursuing his leads, Lee Strobel uses his experience as a Chicago Tribune reporter to interview experts about the evidence for Christ from the fields of science, philosophy, and history. Winner of the Gold Medallion Book Award and twice nominated for Christian Book of the Year Award.

Very pragmatic approach to giving a strong defense for justification of the Believer. The book is written by a former Atheist, which also happens to be an investigative journalism. His whole book is very well written and is a thorough and very detailed in is case for Christ. By the end of this book, if you are a Believer, it will strengthen your Faith, and maybe even swing the skeptic to the side of the Believers.

I have only one complaint about this book. The narrative style. I just don't like it, and it tends to rub me the wrong way. That's the only reason I can't give this a 5 star rating. This book covers just about every atheist/anti-theist argument I've encountered (and no wonder, since it traced the author's journey out of atheism) with hard facts, research, evidence, logic and reason. Well worth the read.

"I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: 'I'm ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don't accept His claim to be God.' That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic...or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God: or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to." C. S. Lewis
