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?

Believer or non believer? This book is a must read. You have to think and it makes you want to read other sources confirming what you have read and already believe. If you make statements about your belief without really looking into why you believe, how honest is that? This book has made a difference in my Christian life and will make a difference in yours. Loved the book and will re-listen and re-read over again and again.
Narrator's voice depiction of persons interviewed made them sound smug, self absorbed and like the snooty crowd out east. His accent and fast cadence of others was equally off, unbelievable, and distracting. He thrust himself into the story rather than speaking in a more normal voice and taking a back seat to the story. Reminded me of an old time vaudevillian over doing the telling of a story.
I am a huge fan of this book, not only for the facinating way the author presents the information on his journey to find answers about Christ, but the narration of the audiobook was wonderful! I can listen to Mr. Fredricks book after book. The way he voices each character keeps the story flowing without ever wondering who is speaking. I love the way Mr. Strobel uses court cases for the starting point of each of his arguments in "The Case for Christ". I would highly recommend this book to all apologetics and also to those who need evidence of the deity of Jesus Christ.
I love this book. I was already a believer in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior prior to listening to this book and this book brought me to tears numerous times. I highly recommend it to the Christian and non-believer alike.
Probably not, unless it was for my pastor. I listened to it on a long drive, thinking it was going to keep me awake, but it was hard to concentrate and keep up with him.
I've wrestled with many of the seemingly divergent beliefs associated with Christ. The Case For Christ provided a well-researched and masterfully performed deep-dive into scholarly insights on Jesus Christ.
