3.0 out of 5 stars the Case for Christ and its pros and cons May 31 2004
Format:Paperback
The Case for Christ was a very interesting novel about a journalist's (Lee Strobel) search for the truth about the figure of Jesus Christ. In order to do this in a fashion in which most people would accept, he interviewed several experts in the subject he was investigating. He went to scholars and professors at several different universities and study groups to find facts about the prophecies of Christ, His resurrection, His crucifixion, objections to the life of Christ, and several other key factors to dispute, about the man of Christ.
Though Strobel investigates in a new and interesting manner, there are flaws to his method. The first flaw is the fact that before every interview, Strobel must take two to four paragraphs to show the credibility of each interviewee. Though this is a necessary section of each interview there are so many different interviewees that it is difficult because credibility facts interrupt the arguments for each point. These facts may be necessary to establish the credibility of the witness, but I think it would have been wise to give us all the credibility facts either at the end or the beginning of the book.
Even though there are ways to improve the style of writing for this particular purpose I believe Strobel's "interrogation" of each individual expert results in several points that can no longer be disputed. One example of this is the interview with Dr. Alexander Metherell, which brought about the scientific evidence that Jesus did in fact die in the cross, which refutes the swoon theory of Jesus' resurrection. Not only does Strobel present evidence well in The Case for Christ, but he also does it in such a manner that each interview compliments the previous to give the book a smooth rhythm or flow.

5.0 out of 5 stars the door into a fascinating study Feb. 24 2004
By Randy
Format:Paperback
This is a wonderful book that gives a very short overview of very large fields of study. It samples the evidence briefly from different disciplines, hopefully enough to show that there is compelling evidence for the historicity of the New Testament story outside of the Bible text itself.
Nothing in this book should be deemed a slam-dunk. It's far too short for that. It should however at least silence those who repeat oft-used canards about the NT.
Probably more valuable than the book itself are the short bibliographies at the end of each chapter, referring you to more in-depth works on the field of study. I've begun making my way through these, and THAT'S where the real treasure lies.
This book is great at quickly arming yourself with more information than the average detractor has on the other side, and is good at piquing the interest of those who say there is no historicity to Christianity. If you expect to walk away convinced, you're not understanding the issue. Read this, then pick up a few books from the Bibliography.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sorry to dissapoint.... Sept. 25 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have to be the voice of dissent here - as an agnostic I was really looking forward to reading this book and perhaps hearing a few solid arguments about the case for Christ.
I found the book to not deliver in any meaningful way to the goals that were stated. The author makes claims to be interested only in the TRUTH and facts about things, as unpleasant as they might be to hear, and claim to be after the truth of some very HARD-HITTING questions, but then he continually glaringly affirms his own beliefs with incredibly weak testimony and heresay from other Christians - notably ones with impressive accomplishments as "proof" of the validity of their opinions. I found most of the passages trite and without much meat - I need meat!! Most of the "evidence" that is used in the book is incredibly circumstantial and would not pass even a precursory examination in any scientific field. I suppose the main problem with humans is general is that they see exactly what they want to see, and this book proves this over and over despite claims to the contrary.
I have never been pressured towards OR away from any particular religion, and having not been born into it as most are, I think this gives me more of an objective opinion - I seek not to prove nor disprove ANY religious theory, only take all of my observations in and form conclusions based on those. I don't think it's a coincidence that <5% of americans are muslim, and <1% of chinese are Christian - humans obviously tend to follow the beliefs of their family and friends. I am still open to finding a God or following, but I need more evidence than the very texts that promote each religion - eg Koran / Bible!! I was really hoping this book would help me out, but it in fact had the opposite effect - something along the lines of "That's it?".

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for every "seeker" July 14 2004
Format:Paperback
THE best father's day present I've ever received. Wonderfully done. Lee Strobel asks the hard questions of world class experts and delivers a compelling case for my God and Savior, Jesus Christ.
I loved McDowell's "Evidence that Demands a Verdict", but this is so much more readable. His mix of present day law cases to introduce and illustrate each segment drew me in and his personal interviews with the people who know the real facts about Jesus and the New Testament was entertaining as well as informative. It was like being in on the best conversations about Jesus you could hear.
I'm grateful for this author and this faith strengthening book. Christians: Buy it, read it and give it to others.
Non-Christians: This is a wonderful close-up of the facts about the life of Jesus.
