I recommend this book to anyone who wants a no nonsense approach to the truth about Jesus. Following the thought process through the mind of an investigative reporter brings new perspective to the questions we all want answered, but did not know where to go for those answers.
There are other "The Case For..." books in this series, all of which I am looking forward to experiencing.
Every chapter brings it's own new perspective!
I'm sure the die hard non-believers will take nothing away from this book, though if you are a skeptic or a believer he makes some very interesting points and arguments. Certainly worth a listen and a credit.
It will convince you. I love all the facts and the people telling them.
Great facts and conversations. It really helps me to solidify my faith in Jesus.
The reader is so good. He does different voices, and I actually like this, considering its a 9 hour book. He really emphasizes points and you can tell how excited he gets pretending to be someone else.. haha he's good.
No, way too long for that. But on my drives, yes.
Great reader, it would be so boring if he never changed voices. He's good.
Some argue that Mr. Strobel wrote this book from a one sided view, a predisposed opinion toward Jesus and Christianity. That argument is incorrect. The book is the result of his begining stance as an atheist who sets out to pull apart the fundamental beliefs of Christianity. He already knew the aguments against Christ, he already knew the science, the writings, the "intellectual" aguments that stand against Jesus. This book is a recap of his questioning the other side. Just as an intelligent reporter, lawyer or any intelligent person would do - he gathered information from his oppostion, from all sources. This book is a summary of his findings along with his report on the personal end result. This book didn't start with a Christian wishing to spread Christianity, it began with an atheist trying to disprove Christ.
This book provides an insight into the facts in a way the in irrefutable. With the facts laid out for the existence of Jesus and his death and resurrection using extra biblical resources; it shows the case for Christ can not be washed away by any argument. Amazingly complete investigative reporting and astonishing fact.
Lee Strobel does a great job of asking the tough questions and letting the facts speak for themselves. Any logical person could not listen to this book and still question the authenticity of the Bible.
The author's ability to use examples to contrast his message. He would take an example of a case he had previously reported on in his journalism career and then use the unique details to emphasize his points.
There were some things I never knew, I didn't realize the other historic texts on Jesus. Again, something in school I was never taught; and I definitely don't recall that information from catechism.
My favorite part of the book was Strobel's ending, what he said.... I won't ruin it for you, but it resonated with me. It was his perspective, I just never thought of it like that.
No, I did take a break from it, but I do that with most of my books I listen to rather than read.
Recommend to Christian and unbelievers, either way I think either one will come away from this book enlightened.
True Jesus Revealed
The thoroughness, scrutinty
Great enthusiasm, entertaining articulation
The parts that contrast before and after receiving Christ!
This is by far the best-read audio book that I've ever listened to! While I have appreciated other exhaustive apologetic books, this one by far makes it easy to consume from front to back. The others seem good for jumping to and reading about a particular subject, but hard to read from front to back. I would not want to have one book over another, but this is by far my favorite in examining the basic tenets of Christianity with high scrutiny. Peace be unto you!
