Case for Christ: A Journalist's Personal Investigation of the Evidence for Jesus

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Lee Strobel

Narrated By: Lee Strobel

Publisher: Zondervan

Date: October 2016

Duration: 10 hours 50 minutes

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 own fields.

Strobel challenges them with questions like, How reliable is the New Testament? Does evidence for Jesus exist outside the Bible? Is there any reason to believe the resurrection was an actual event?

Winner of the Gold Medallion Book Award and twice nominated for the Christian Book of the Year Award, Strobel's tough, point-blank questions 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.

The new edition includes scores of revisions and additions, including updated material on archaeological and manuscript discoveries, fresh recommendations for further study, and an interview with the author that tells dramatic stories about the book's impact, provides behind-the-scenes information, and responds to critiques of the book by skeptics. As The Case for Christ and its ancillary resources approach 10 million copies in print, this updated edition will prove even more valuable to contemporary readers.

    Excellent book! Definitely not the end of the discussion but it is an excellent start and Lee Strobel recognizes that. The book is well researched, we presented, and honest about its perspective, uses and limitations. Whether you are a Christian or not many people today have a lot of misconceptions about Christ and the Bible and the credibility of the evidence for either/both. This book does a good job shedding some light on why the evidence is much stronger than one would typically think. I would recommend this book for both Christians and non-Christians who want to intelligently consider the case for or against the authenticity of Christ. It's an excellent introduction to some of the major areas of evidence and gist of the argument in favor of Christ in that category. It presents some of the major arguments against Christ and then offers a cogent rebuttal. Even if a skeptic is not ultimately won over, I think any reader giving a good faith assessment would have to concede that the evidence presented in he book is enough to give one pause.

    If this book's intention was to convert non-christians into followers of Christ - it didn't succeed with this listener. My main concern with the interviews by the author is that none of the interviewees are skeptics. This leads to a one-sided perspective and feels forced in my opinion. However, I did find it interesting how many scholars spend their whole life studying and teaching a subject that ultimately seems pointless.
