Unsupported conclusions stated as fact; sophomoric arguments lobbed to "experts" that aren't the actual arguments of atheists; uncited sources used as evidence; blanket "most scholars" and "the majority opinion" statements used to discount serious arguments; other serious arguments against Strobel's conclusions unaddressed; and the complete lack of interviews from scholars who hold opposing views makes this work a case study in how predetermined conclusions color our evaluation of evidence.
In "The Case for Christ", Strobel says he has taken an "objective" and "hard-hitting" examination of the evidence using "journalistic" methods, yet for the reasons stated above, he fails to do that. And the listener is left with a piece of Christian propaganda rather than a truly objective look at the arguments for and against Christ based upon ALL of the evidence. For that, Christians will be happy - but those of us who are actually interested in the arguments will find this work severely lacking.
I truly wish that I had been introduced to this book before I actually became a believer. And those lost years, as a journalist like the offer, this book is researched and written so profoundly you have to have -- to use the author's words -- " more space stubbornness to remain an atheist then to become a Christian." , given that the narrator does voices for all of the interviewees, it is an entertaining listen.
