Publisher's Summary

Who was in the manger that first Christmas morning? Some say he would become a great moral leader. Others, a social critic. Still, others view Jesus as a profound philosopher, a rabbi, a feminist, a prophet, and more. Many are convinced he was the divine Son of God.

Who was he really? And how can you know for sure?

Consulting experts on the Bible, archaeology, and messianic prophecy, award-winning legal journalist Lee Strobel searches out the true identity of the child in the manger. If Jesus really was God in the flesh, then there ought to be credible evidence, including:

  • Eyewitness Evidence - Can the biographies of Jesus be trusted?
  • Scientific Evidence - What does archaeology reveal?
  • Profile Evidence - Did Jesus fulfill the attributes of God?
  • Fingerprint Evidence - Did Jesus uniquely match the identity of the Messiah?

The Case for Christmas invites listeners to consider why Christmas matters in the first place. Somewhere beyond the traditions of the holiday lies the truth. Listeners will find this little book a timely product, perfect as a gift or for use in ministry during the Christmas season or any other time of the year.

Rehash of The Case for Christ

I'm pretty sure that everything but the "Christmas Sidebars" were copied directly from The Case for Christ. If you've read/listened to that then this is just a refresher with roughly 5 minutes of new content.

this could be more aptly named the case for Jesus

I liked it, we're going over this book in our Bible study and I wanted to be able to listen to it while driving. this does a good job of making clear points directly and doesn't dance around them. I also like how the author directly hits on a couple points that I thought were contentious. overall an easy listening that's under 3 hours.

Short and very sweet!

Loved this concise and compelling account of Strobel’s search for the truth about Jesus’ identity. A must-read for those searching for and those who have found Jesus!

A great read for Christmas

This is basically an abridged version of Lee Strobel's book, The Case For Christ that focuses on on the evidences for the Biblical narrative about the birth of Jesus. Lee Strobel is always an interesting read and he does a great job narrating as well.

Great book to refocus attention on Christ during the holiday season.

Great book to refocus attention on Christ during the holiday season. It is, however, a shortened version of
the author’s “Case for Christ.”

Nothing really new

Lee pulled notes from the Case for Christ and added some additional notes... No actual new information... I was disappointed...
