Investigating the Evidence for Belief. I remember years ago when I first read The Case for Christ. It was very interesting and I remember wanting to really read the other books when they came out, but some reason I never got around to it. A couple weeks ago I discovered The Case for Faith: A Journalist Investigates the Toughest Objections to Christianity documentary available to watch on instant view through NetFlix and I was awed and entertained. Soon after that I discovered The Case for Christ Study Bible. I knew that it was going to be great having inserts from some of Lee Strobel's writings, but I did not expect just how cool it would be.

The Case for Christ Study Bible is a great tool. An incredible resource, and a great Bible for an apologetics class or for a general student of the scriptures or someone looking for answers. In this Bible the reader gets the benefit of Lee's other books without having to sit and read them in full. Within the pages of scripture, appropriate and relevant study notes right along side the passages. The study notes are broken into sections: 'The Case for Christ' - These notes explore Jesus' claims, his deity, and demonstrate that he is the Messiah. 'The Case for the Bible' = These notes explore the character of the Bible, review the extra-biblical evidence that corroborates Scripture, and explain apparent contradictions within the Bible. 'The Case for Faith' = These articles address questions such as "How can there be a God that would allow pain and suffering?" and "Doesn't science prove that the world was created by chance?" 'The Case for a Creator' - These notes highlight the wonders of creation and demonstrate how the scientific evidence points to one all-powerful Creator and then 'The Verdict' notes provide testimonies from scholars and other Christians who have examined the evidence, discovered the reality of Jesus, and put their faith in him.

Extra features include maps that are so often great and found within quality Zondervan Bibles as well as a NIV Concordance and a very neat Old and New Testament Chronology time-line. Using the well known and trusted New International Version, this Bible translation is very easy to understand and start to comprehend. The main scripture font is a solid black and the highlights are all in an attractive brown making the image of the page easy on the eye. The study notations are thorough and interesting as are the cross reference notes. This Bible would make a perfect gift for a varying arraying of people and circumstances and I definitely think it would be great in a classroom or study shelf.

*Thanks to Beth Johnson of Zondervan for providing a copy for review.* ( )

Have you ever heard Scripture's truths but wondered where to find those truths in the Scriptures? Or have you ever wondered where to find evidence for belief in God in the Bible? You're not alone. Millions of people have asked these same questions, including Lee Strobel -- an atheist who engaged in a thorough search for the truth to decide for himself if Jesus was who he claimed to be. Drawn from Lee's own experiences as a former atheist and featuring his journalistic style from his days as an investigative reporter with the Chicago Tribune, the notes and articles throughout The Case for Christ Study Bible are designed to motivate you to investigate the Bible's claims for yourself. Whether you are a Christian seeking encouragement in your faith and knowledge about who God is or a seeker or skeptic searching for answers, you will benefit from Lee's own extensive search for the truth. Some of the excellent study notes found in this Bible include: The Case for Christ Articles Over 220 The Case for Christ notes explore Jesus' claims and deity and demonstrate that he is the Messiah. The Case for the Bible Notes More than 170 The Case for the Bible notes explore the character of the Bible and the extra-biblical evidence that corroborates Scripture as well as explain apparent contradictions within the Bible. The Case for a Creator Notes Seventy-five The Case for a Creator notes highlight the wonders of creation and demonstrate how the scientific evidence points to one all-powerful Creator. The Case for Faith Articles One hundred The Case for Faith articles address questions such as, 'How can there be a God that would allow so much pain and suffering?' and, 'Doesn't science prove that the world was created by chance?' The Verdict Notes Twenty The Verdict notes provide testimonies from scholars and other Christians who have examined the evidence, discovered the reality of Jesus, and put their faith in him. Book Introductions Sixty-six Book Introductions offer a short overview of each book. Lee Strobel (www.LeeStrobel.com), with a journalism degree from the University of Missouri and a Master of Studies in Law degree from Yale Law School, was the award-winning legal editor of the Chicago Tribune and a spiritual skeptic until 1981. His books include four Gold Medallion winners and the 2005 Christian Book of the Year (coauthored with Garry Poole). He and his wife live in California.
