Publisher's Summary

Is there credible evidence that Jesus of Nazareth really is the Son of God?

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.

What will your verdict be in The Case for Christ?

    Story
    "Great book! Solid approach."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    What other book might you compare The Case for Christ to and why?

    There are other "The Case For..." books in this series, all of which I am looking forward to experiencing.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Every chapter brings it's own new perspective!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes

    "Enjoyable read."

    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.

    Story
    "Fantastic Reader!"
    If you could sum up The Case for Christ in three words, what would they be?

    It will convince you. I love all the facts and the people telling them.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Great facts and conversations. It really helps me to solidify my faith in Jesus.


    What does Dick Fredricks bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, way too long for that. But on my drives, yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Great reader, it would be so boring if he never changed voices. He's good.

    "Case Closed"

    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.

    "A must read!"

    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.

    Story
    "Great Read"
    What made the experience of listening to The Case for Christ the most enjoyable?

    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.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Case for Christ?

    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.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I did take a break from it, but I do that with most of my books I listen to rather than read.


    Any additional comments?

    Recommend to Christian and unbelievers, either way I think either one will come away from this book enlightened.

    Story
    "Wow! Amazing Book! Amazing Performance!"
    If you could sum up The Case for Christ in three words, what would they be?

    True Jesus Revealed


    What did you like best about this story?

    The thoroughness, scrutinty


    What does Dick Fredricks bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Great enthusiasm, entertaining articulation


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The parts that contrast before and after receiving Christ!


    Any additional comments?

    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!
