Publisher's Summary

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?

©2007 Lee Strobel; (P)2007 Zondervan

    "A Re-awakening."

    I have real questions for a real faith. I believe this books is a valiant effort to balance the bias that the media and liberal education flood us with. I also believe it is unfortunate that the students of Dr. Ehrman (whom the book references) consider his apologetics as the final word on the mnatter. I also applaud The Teaching Company for including professors such as Dr. Johnson in their courses to balance the bias. It is clear that many esteemed "intellectuals" such as Dr. Ehrman have an ax to grind. I thus applaud Lee Strobel for presenting an objective as possible approach to serious matters of faith. Ivory Tower intellectuals do not have all of the answers and they know it.

    "True Scholarship"

    In his book "The Case for the Real Jesus", Lee Strobel does an excellent job of refuting current arguments against Jesus and the gospel. He accomplishes this difficult task through science, research, and scholarly examination of hard evidence. An excellent read; easy to understand and entertaining.

    Story
    "Solid"
    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.

    "Full of great evidence."

    I enjoyed this for the most part. A few doctrinal issues (well, one), but overall worth listening.

    "Well Researched! Well Written!"

    Lee Strobel uses the skills he learned as an investigative journalist to research and investigate the varying claims about who Jesus was and who He wasn't.

    Was Jesus the Son of God? Was he just a wise man? Was he something else altogether? Read this great book to find out!

    "Essential facts for troubled times"

    Lee Strobel manages to address many tough arguments against the historical Jesus - arguments that have left many in the church confused, concerned and questioning. For those who believe, "The Case For The Real Jesus" offers a firm foundation on which to place your faith in the risen Messiah. Go forward with confidence.
