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 fields. Strobel challenges them with questions like How reliable is the New Testament? Does evidence exist for Jesus outside the Bible? Is there any reason to believe the resurrection was an actual event?

Strobel's tough, point-blank questions make this remarkable book read 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.

Only a partial book

Even though this states it is "unabridged", the author only reads a few chapters...not the entire book!!! If you want to hear the entire book, choose the other one!

A gentle breeze could sway Strobel

I certainly wouldn't want Mr. Lee Strobel investigating my murder. It's like he set out to convince himself...and succeeded.
Man proceeds to interviews the indoctrinated and uses scripture to make his case. Whilst interviewing "experts" they never provide data that "I" can go look, short of the bible.
His sources are hardly objective. Lee for that matter is hardly objective. And of course we end it all with the obligatory "You have to believe to see it"
Mostly just feel bad for his then 5 year old daughter. Who was taught that the power to stop boozing, stabbing his colleagues in the back, and to start loving his family, comes from a magical sky daddy and now within one's self.

Case for Christ

I am surprised it is full price for an abridged version... It is a good book otherwise.

Abridged

The audio book made a convincing argument however it is an abridged version of the actual book. Much powerful analysis was omitted. In the end the audio version was sufficient to win the case for Christ!

A Case for Christianity

I wonder if this is the same book as the Case for Christianity. If it's not then I'd like to see it also on Audible ASAP.

The real jesus was inside us all along

A poor attempt at apologetics that ends with “if you feel like christ is true, that means It’s true for you!”

Well worth the time to listen

I've been a Christian for many years and learned a lot of new things I had not heard or researched before. I'll have to get the actual book and research Lee's research.
