    From college classrooms to best selling books to the Internet, the historic picture of Jesus is under an intellectual onslaught. This fierce attack on the traditional portrait of Christ has confused spiritual seekers and created doubt among many Christians: but can these radical new claims and revisionist theories stand up to sober scrutiny

    Would you listen to The Case for the Real Jesus again? Why?

    This is an excellent treatment of the historical evidence, logical implications and conclusions coming from it. The only real way to overcome this carefully presented arguement is to successfully dispute the facts upon which it is constructed. Because the facts are beyond dispute and accepted even by critics of the conclusion, it is hard to see how you can reach any other conclusions than Stroble presents.

    Strobel's intellectual honesty and willingness to admit his sketicism at first blush at some responses to his questions, only adds to the strength of the arguments. He often does not take even the third and fourth answers without question. This is a thorough job that demonstrates that Strobel has thought through his subject long before the interviews. He does not let his interviewees off lightly! But he does not adopt an antagonistic tone.

    The objection some will raise is that Strobel didn't scream and rant at his interviewees. He treated them respectfully. This will be construed as being soft on the arguements. Obviously Strobel has presuppostions, so he is not going to make a fool of himself by adopting a belligerent approach, just to prove his so called objectivity. But then EVERYONE begins with presuppositions, even skeptics, and skeptics would hardly disqualify themselves on that premise!

    All in all this is a good job. I only wish journalists today were as thorough and thoughtful as this when they are covering politics. On average in the news cycle we get nowhere near this level of objective and honest reporting.
