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?

Only a partial book

Even though this states it is "unabridged", the author only reads a few chapters...not the entire book!!! If you want to hear the entire book, choose the other one!

Case for Christ

I am surprised it is full price for an abridged version... It is a good book otherwise.

Abridged

The audio book made a convincing argument however it is an abridged version of the actual book. Much powerful analysis was omitted. In the end the audio version was sufficient to win the case for Christ!

The real jesus was inside us all along

A poor attempt at apologetics that ends with “if you feel like christ is true, that means It’s true for you!”

Well worth the time to listen

I've been a Christian for many years and learned a lot of new things I had not heard or researched before. I'll have to get the actual book and research Lee's research.

A gentle breeze could sway Strobel

I certainly wouldn't want Mr. Lee Strobel investigating my murder. It's like he set out to convince himself...and succeeded.
Man proceeds to interviews the indoctrinated and uses scripture to make his case. Whilst interviewing "experts" they never provide data that "I" can go look, short of the bible.
His sources are hardly objective. Lee for that matter is hardly objective. And of course we end it all with the obligatory "You have to believe to see it"
Mostly just feel bad for his then 5 year old daughter. Who was taught that the power to stop boozing, stabbing his colleagues in the back, and to start loving his family, comes from a magical sky daddy and now within one's self.

it's simply but an enjoyable listen

the narration is good but a little slow
as far as the story it just feels he's one sided only talking with pepole with degrees in religious text never really putting in a counter argument other then to use as a lead in to the next line from the schoolers, but maybe the unabridged is better

A great read for anyone on the fence or looking for evidence in regards to Christ, the bible and it's authors.
