Publisher's 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?

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.

    "Everyone Needs to Hear This!"

    Whether you believe in God or not, I believe that you need to invest in this book! I think that he's covered enough ground, and spoken to all of the preeminent men in their field to allow you to make a truly informed decision on whether or not Jesus Christ is 'for real'!

    And, just in case you didn't have all of your questions answered satisfactorily, there's even an extensive bibliography and references section. For you to delve deeper!

    Lee Strobel's diligence and determination, has saved many of us a lot of time. I really appreciate this book.

    "A factual look at the evidence"

    fascinating look at the historical evidence. we all have an opinion on this and no matter what your opinion is I doubt it is based on all the facts. This book provides a wealth of information in a well thought out and entertaining way. Well worth reading not matter what you believe

    "A must read for skeptics and theists alike. "

    I'll begin by saying I myself am an agnostic pantheist. I have a degree in Philosophy and Religion and a keen interest an stuff like this and mental and physical wellbeing generally.
    I love books which grapple with tough issues, and books that help people. This book does both with critical and scholarly precision.

    "It convinced me"
    What did you like best about this story?

    A good solid piece of work on the most important subject matter. If I had a criticism it would be that it could have been more balanced as it did come across a bit one sided. I believed before and believe after with maybe a few more facts to back up my belief but I always had faith.

    "Great introduction to apologetic type thingy majig"
    If you could sum up Case for Christ, Revised & Updated in three words, what would they be?

    Entertaining, Thought-provoking, Challenging


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Case for Christ, Revised & Updated?

    It is full of them too many to list


    What about Lee Strobel’s performance did you like?

    Very matter of fact and level headed


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    They have: "Based on the true story of an award-winning journalist who, working to disprove the new found Christian faith of his wife, begins chasing down the biggest story of all time ... with unexpected, life-altering results."


    Any additional comments?

    Skeptics of the Christian faith, use this and other Lee Strobell Books as an introduction to your walk with Christ. Belivers, use this book and others in the Lee Strobell Series of books as an introduction to your study of apologetics.

    "Wow"

    I have always felt a barrier between Christ and myself. The desire to connect has always been there, but I've always had so much doubt. However, I have never taken the time to check the facts for myself. I've leaned all too heavy in my misunderstandings. This book called to me, and I'm glad I answered. It has impacted me, and I'll never be the same. For that, I am grateful.

    "Convicted"

    As a former homicide detective in the nation's capital the evidence in the case for Christ is overwhelming and the only verdict a diligent investigator could render is that Jesus is the Christ and my sins were paid for in full with Christ conviction.

    "It takes too much faith to be an atheist"

    I have the kindle book and the audio. I would read along with the narrator. The is methodically laid out. There is so much evidence that Jesus lived, died and came back to life. I'm already a believer so this book will help me when I speak with people who don't. With this information I can speak rationally and not be preachy.

    "Easy to follow Evangelical apologetics"

    If you are expecting Lee Stobel's transformation story from atheist to Christian, you'll likely be disappointed in this book. But, if you're looking for replies to common ( and some not so common) questions against Christianity, from the reliably of the New Testament to the likelihood of the resurrection, you'll find plenty to like here.

    Stobel does a nice job of summarizing responses from leading Evangelical scholars in an easy to follow format. But, he does not act like a skeptic nor an investigative journalist here. He fawns over the credentials and responses of his interviewees, readily accepts the views he already agrees with (he's been a pastor for 20 years by the time conducts these interviews), denigrates the people (derisively labeled as "liberals" or "left-wing Christians," would a skeptic see these labels negatively or the already converted?), dismisses the views he doesn't, and doesn't talk to any skeptic or differing opinions or interpretations of the data. He does have tough questions for his interviews, but his one-sided reporting I hope is not indicative of the state of investigative, open-minded journalism he espouses in the subtitle of the book.

    "A definite read!"

    For those who are skeptical about the claims of Jesus or Christians, this book looks at many of the questions most people have and strives to find the truth. For those who know who Jesus was but want to gain more knowledge about the historical and factual information about his life and claims, this is also a great book. I found it easy to listen to while hearing the facts. I wondered about listening to a book that would take hours to get through but found each chapter compelling and then was ready to hear more. It will be worth your while to listen to this book no matter what you believe!

    "Excellent choice for Audible!"

    When you think you select this book I am convinced GOD has selected it for you. A lot of people choose a printed book for a "beach read;" not me. I like to close my eyes and listen. There are disadvantages to an Audible book in that you don't have the footnotes and it's slightly more difficult to "tab pages." However, in the Audible version you get something special that is only inferential in the printed version: the passion of the author is heard as he relates the story. Now I want to go hear Lee Strobel speak. I'm going to research that to see if it is possible.

    Story
    "An expert, thorough investigation"

    Lee Strobel, a man on a mission, narrates his own journey to find out what the deal is with this Jesus of Nazareth who lived thousands of years ago. What makes him so special to Christians? What made him so special to his wife that she suddenly tells him "I am a Christian now"? Lee seeks out the best sources of information from biblical scholars and experts to answer several questions about Jesus, the veracity of the bible, and explanations to the criticisms of Christianity. The reader/listener is on the jury with one simple job: look at the evidence for what it says, deliberate, and come to your own conclusion based on an accurate handling of the evidence.
