    "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.

    "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.

    "compelling research into the deity of Jesus"
    If you could sum up The Case for the Real Jesus in three words, what would they be?

    thought provoking compelling


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

    When ny husband (who is not a "believer" said he wanted to listen to this & other Strobel books


    What didn’t you like about Lee Strobel’s performance?

    Too fast and when does he give one a chance to let a thought take hold


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    If you didn't believe before you will now


    Any additional comments?

    Interested enough to listen to his other boojs and get his DVD series

    "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.

    "Has the"

    Can we even be sure that it was the Real Lee Strobel who authored such masterful and facinating prior efforts of this book series, "The Case for... ". Sorry, Mr. Strobel, but this one bombs, especially as an audio book, as it was overly long and frankly, very boring. Perhaps this series has run its course. Anyhow, this book most likely was my last exploration of books this type.
