Примечание редактора

Expert reportage…

Strobel approaches the son of God with expert reportage from scientific and philosophical angles, ultimately carving out his own path from skeptic to believer.

Описание

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?

In this winner of the Gold Medallion Book Award and two-time nominee for the Christian Book of the Year Award, Strobel's tough, point-blank questions play 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. This updated edition will prove even more valuable to contemporary listeners.

    When a prominent journalist decides to prove his wife's faith is based on myth and superstition, he digs deeper and deeper into the study of the Bible and the historical records. What he finds changes his life and his marriage. Based on a true story, this book has also been made into a movie.

    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!
  • (4/5)
    An excellent book. There is much evidence that can help one when thinking through the rational basis for Christian faith. However some books on this subject are very detailed and heavy reading. This one is very well written and easy to read. His arguments are clear and well portrayed. It is fascinating to follow Lee Strobel's personal journey from atheism to faith. Lee Strobel, with a Master of Studies in Law Degree from Yale Law School, was an award winning journalist at the Chicago tribune.

    A very good exploration into the historical evidence that Jesus really was who he claimed to be. In it, Strobel interviews Biblical experts and challenges them to prove that Jesus is the Messiah. He is thorough and unyielding in these interviews, challenging the texts themselves, the witnesses, the death of Jesus, and all points in between.I would recommend this to anyone who really wants to know if the claims of the Bible are true. I'm sure those who are determined to not believe will find a reason to, but those with more open minds will at very least find the claims of Christianity are a little more credible than they may have first thought.

    A bit verbose, but good information inside.

    The author builds a strong case that Christ was a real person and actually performed miracles.
  • (5/5)
    Lee Strobel asks some tough questions about Christianity and as a crime reporter knows how to get some answers.
  • (4/5)
    Sounded like it'd be "investigative", but seemed more the author lobbing himself softballs, and cheering himself on hitting them out of the park. Having said that, it was a fairly enjoyable read, and I've got Case for Faith on my stack to read. And the closing few pages were worth the rest of the book, IMO.

    I am already a Christian, so I don't know if this book would have compelled me to believe in Christ or not. However, Strobel investigates the claims about who Jesus was and the circumstances surrounding his death and resurrection in an objective manner. The resurrection of course is the single most important event in history, so knowing how we know that those testimonies are true is pretty compelling.
  • (3/5)
    This was one of the first books I read in 2002 as God starting working His power in my life. It encouraged and emboldened me. The chapter on the death and subsequent resurrection were informative, sobering and comforting. It is a great book to give to an unbeliever who will take the time to read it.
  • (4/5)
    It accomlishes what it set out to do. It's an easy way to get an overview of the questions that often come up when talking about the historical realities of the death/life of JC. This stuff is not really my bag, but for what it is it's great.
  • (5/5)
    This was a very interesting and compelling book. I read it as a believer, so I needed no convincing, but I liked reading the way an attorney approaches the subject.
  • (3/5)
    Very good documentation of how Jesus stands up to scholarly historical scrutiny. Helped bolster my faith though I'm looking even more forward to reading The Case for Faith.
  • (5/5)
    I'm already convinced so I'm biased but I thought it was a pretty solid arguement.
  • (3/5)
    I'm currently reading this book. I have a couple of religious books that I have lined up for reading. And this is the first. I'll be sure to tell you all what I think when I'm done with this one. But so far it's pretty good.
  • (5/5)
    Lee Strobel interviews and investigates some of the top religious, scientists, archeologists to come up with this book...to say there really was a Jesus Christ that walked among the earth and he is the son of God. Praise be to God for Lee. If you struggle with explaining Jesus to someone you love, give them this book.
  • (5/5)
    This book examines the evidence for Jesus by interviewing a dozen academics who specialise in a variety of different fields. Evidence that was examined included scientific, medical psychological evidence and also examination of the Bible and other historical documents. It would be great book for anyone seeking evidence for the existance of Jesus as the Messiah. A great book to recommend to non-Christian friends.
  • (3/5)
    Substance: Each element of the "case" is based on the evidence Strobel would consider necessary in any legal case, and each chapter is prefaced by an actual case relevant to that type of evidence. These anecdotes are quite interesting, although not always exactly on point. For the evidence about Christ he depends on doctrinal scholars and their research. Not much of what he discovers is new, but it's useful to have it gathered into one volume.Style: Strobel's presentation and evaluation of the evidence is journalistic rather than scholarly. There may be an associated documentary available.Notes:"Legend today develops instantly - it's called 'spin' and it happens on purpose."Check the rest of the notes marked in the book.For some bizarre reason, he drops in a paragraph condemning the Book of Mormon without any further explanation or previous motivation.

    Atheists don't have a leg to stand on with the hard evidence that this journalist presents in his case for Christ. Nothing else in history has the kind of proof and witnesses that the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ has and it is simply wonderful to see how this case unfolds. Lee Strobel had started out on this quest as a hard-core skeptic and atheist. And he emerged a devout Christian. I doubt this means that others will do so too. If there's one thing I've learnt each person needs to go on their own spiritual journey and discovery. However, I enjoyed reading this book. It was confirmation of my faith and very very informative. I would recommend this book to all seekers of faith and christians alike.

    This tool has been helping me answer questions from a friend who is struggling to find truth. What excites me about this book is that the story of Jesus, as told in the Gospels, is not only reliable, it is reliable in many categories. The internal and external proofs are overwhelming, and anyone who is sincerely looking for answers can be assured Jesus really lived on earth, died on the cross, and rose from the dead on the third day.

    So amazing. The man went from being an antagonistic Athiest to a born again Christian--it's a great read for everyone in that spectrum. I like how he used secular writings from the 1st century as well as the culture of the early church to help us understand different aspects of the history behind Christ's story.He asked the logic questions that most people have, and the answers he found are very convicting. I have a new found love for Luke as a historian, and the preface to his gospel makes me smile. I also like how he breaks up his research into different parts, and the part I most appreciated was the information on Resurrection of Christ.I'm proud that a professor from my Alma Mater, Liberty University, was referenced!

    I've been a Christian for years, and this book still brought up some of the questions I had. I loved how they were answered - we won't always have the answers to things, but the answers we do have should be enough.
  • (4/5)
    The Case for Christ documents a series of interviews of leading Biblical scholars that discuss such questions as:

    Can the biographies of Jesus be trusted?
    Were they reliably preserved?
    Does archaeology confirm or contradict the gospels?
    Was Jesus crazy when He claimed to be the son of God?
    Was Jesus seen alive after His death on the cross?
    What does the evidence establish?

    I liked Strobel's writing style. He includes a nice description of his conversations without just listing a bunch of dry academic facts. The facts themselves are quite interesting. I thought his "case" was well presented, but I am of course already biased to believe it. So, would it change my mind if I were atheist or agnostic? I don't know. He does bring up common arguments and refutes them, which I found compelling.

    Speaking as a Christian, I believe this book provides an interesting read in apologetics. I enjoyed it, and thought it had some solid points to support the validity of the Bible. Of course, in the end, it's written by a man. Ultimately, my faith comes from what I read in the Bible, not what a man or Bible scholar writes. I believe anything aside from the inspired word of God can have fallacies - intended or not. But I would recommend this read to others, and I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.

    A very persuasive review of many reasons to believe.
    Thanks

    Well researched book from a sceptic but now a follower of Jesus...
  • (5/5)
    Being a christian myself, I already had strong beliefs as to Jesus and the authenticity of the Bible. This book has reignited my faith and hungry for knowing more about God like never before. Definitely a book I will be revisiting.
  • (5/5)
    Excellent factual account for the reasonable and justifiable conclusion to cognitively grasp the truth of the gospel and an invitation to personally know God.
