Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 031024210X, Hardcover)Has modern scholarship debunked the traditional Christ? Has the church suppressed the truth about Jesus to advance its own agenda? What if the real Jesus is far different from the atoning Savior worshipped through the centuries? In The Case for the Real Jesus, former award-winning legal editor Lee Strobel explores such hot-button questions as: * Did the church suppress ancient non-biblical documents that paint a more accurate picture of Jesus than the four Gospels? * Did the church distort the truth about Jesus by tampering with early New Testament texts? * Do new insights and explanations finally disprove the resurrection? * Have fresh arguments disqualified Jesus from being the Messiah? * Did Christianity steal its core ideas from earlier mythology? Evaluate the arguments and evidence being advanced by prominent atheists, liberal theologians, Muslim scholars, and others. Sift through expert testimony. Then reach your own verdict in The Case for the Real Jesus.

"Presents a number of counter-arguments to challenges to the evangelical Christian view of Jesus and his message. Strobel addresses differences between how Jesus is portrayed in the non-canonical gospels versus the four canonical gospels, whether the Bible's portrayal of Jesus has been tampered with by the church, new explanations that refute Jesus' resurrection, whether Christianity's portrayal of Jesus was drawn from pagan religions, whether Jesus fulfils messianic prophecies, and whether contemporary people should be able to choose what to believe about Jesus" -- www.wikipedia.com
