The Case for Christ: Review
by Lee Strobel
My Review: The Case for Christ uses scripture and commentary to explore the existence of Christ and how to prove it to oneself or others. The author uses theologically sound arguments based on a series of questions listed below:
Questions raised: Can the biographies of Jesus be trusted?Do the biographies of Jesus stand up to scrutiny?Were Jesus' biographies reliably preserved for us?Is there credible evidence for Jesus outside his biographies?Does archaeology confirm or contradict Jesus' biographies?Is the Jesus of history the same as the Jesus of faith? Was Jesus really convinced that he was the son of God?Did Jesus fulfill the attributes of Gof?Did Jesus-And Jesus alone-Match the identity of the Messiah?Was Jesus' death a sham and his resurrection a hoax?Was Jesus' body really absent from his tomb?Was Jesus seen alive after his death on the cross?Are there any supporting facts that point to the resurrection? What does the evidence establish--and what does it mean today?
