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?

“the book I was reading turned out to be crack” ― Elizabeth Norris, Unraveling
That was an extremely one sided argument.
A book giving the other side of the argument
I found this book highly interesting and informative.It was not dry and boring
I was inspired to hear compelling evidence for the historical Jesus.
Lee journalistic background with real life legal cases comes to the fore as he probes the accuracy of the New Testament and person of Jesus.
The fringe whacko's get much airplay putting forward fanciful suggestions which seem to undermine Gospel of Jesus. Lee explores these claims carefully and seriously and give credible evidence which affirms the faith the reasonableness of Christians.
I commend this book to all who want to know the real Jesus
Was very clearly read. Thoroughly helped me in reading the book. I recommend it if you want to learn while doing another activity such as working out.
Throughout the book I found myself wanting to share with others. It isn't that I ever doubted the resurection but to have your faith confirmed with facts is an amazing experience. God Bless.
I have listened 3 times, and I'm sure I will again. If you don't need convincing of the reality of Christ as I didn't, this will still give you a lot of great material for defending the Faith and to help you handle many of the objections we get when witnessing to others. At the very least it will strengthen your own beliefs in Christ. If Lee could be convinced ...
The author and the experts spend all of their time discussing the plausibility of events written down in the bible, but they never gave indisputable proof that the miracles performed by Jesus actually happened. Good listen, but in the end, there is NO proof, only Faith.
I felt like I had just finished a marathon Fox News session. One side to every chapter! :) He didn't interview anyone who is not an enthusiastic endorser of the bible and Christianity in general. Is this how they do reporting at the Chicago Tribune? Scary!
Maybe a documentary
Amazing, Convincing, Convicting
Getting the chance to follow Lee's jouney to Christ
