Fantastic; this book is so intelligent and so well-researched. I'm going to lend my copy to some of my athiest friends. ( )

This book is an excellent resource both for people first considering Christianity or Christians who want more confidence in their beliefs. ( )

Lee Strobel's book got really big when I was in college and he makes a really good argument for why the Creationism theory isn't so far-fetched. I really love his stuff - he looks at everything through the lens of a journalist, someone who is investigating the situation and trying to come to conclusions. ( )

Strobel's most well-known book stating the Case for Christ from a journalist's perspective. ( )

I have read this book before, and probably will again. Strobel presents evidence for Christ and the resurrection that changed his mind and had him converting from an atheist to a Christian. Sometimes it is not bad to be reminded! ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0310209307, Paperback)

The Case for Christ records Lee Strobel's attempt to "determine if there's credible evidence that Jesus of Nazareth really is the Son of God." The book consists primarily of interviews between Strobel (a former legal editor at the Chicago Tribune) and biblical scholars such as Bruce Metzger. Each interview is based on a simple question, concerning historical evidence (for example, "Can the Biographies of Jesus Be Trusted?"), scientific evidence, ("Does Archaeology Confirm or Contradict Jesus' Biographies?"), and "psychiatric evidence" ("Was Jesus Crazy When He Claimed to Be the Son of God?"). Together, these interviews compose a case brief defending Jesus' divinity, and urging readers to reach a verdict of their own.
