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 fields. Strobel challenges them with questions like How reliable is the New Testament? Does evidence exist for Jesus outside the Bible? Is there any reason to believe the resurrection was an actual event?
Strobel's tough, point-blank questions make this remarkable book 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.

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.
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.
