This is a great read for a skeptic or scholar - balanced, concise and factual. I look forward to the evidence in Strobel's other books.
this book was written by a converted atheist in a unbiased manner ... this book changed my life I hope it does for u too
I thank the Lord for this work. I have been a Christian with the child like faith but this work and the resources that he has displayed has bolstered my scientific mind.
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!
Revealing for doubters
Dick Fredericks seemed able to convey the range of emotion of Strobel as he travelled from doubtful, to inquisitive, to passionate explorer, to believer.
Will the Truth Set You Free...or Convict You?
For every person out there who considers them-self an intellectual and believes that there's no rational reason to believe the Bible or the centerpiece of Christian faith - The Life, Death, and Resurrection of Christ... This will allow you the opportunity to approach the subject intellectually and believe.
I would have interviewed the opposing scholarly opinions, not just the scholarly who only hold one opinion.
Not really... Although I was a bit annoyed to see the question towards the end about many other religions producing similar effects somewhat dodged.
If you are on the edge and truly want to believe Jesus is God deep down inside and just need that little bit of evidence to sway your opinion then this book will do it. But for the more skeptical the arguments in the book can appear incomplete. Christianity is not a logical religion, it is a faith based religion. If you are looking for logical evidence chances are you won't find it.
