Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Atheist-turned-Christian Strobel, with four Gold Medallions and other awards, focuses on rediscovering the real Jesus, whose identity and message have come under attack in recent years. He addresses six major challenges and claims: that a different Jesus is seen in ancient documents that seem as credible as the four canonical gospels; that tampering by the church has damaged the Bible's portrayal of Jesus; that new explanations refute Jesus' resurrection; that Christianity copied pagan religions regarding Jesus; that Jesus didn't fulfill messianic prophecies; and that contemporary people should be able to choose what to believe about Jesus. As with his previous books, Strobel attacks the issues as an investigative journalist, though one with a clear agenda. He searches out experts (including Craig A. Evans and Michael Licona) to refute each objection, offering readers top evangelical scholarship revealed in everyday language while challenging the claims of liberal writers like John Shelby Spong, Bart Ehrman and others. In the end, he says, none of these seemingly daunting challenges turned out to be close calls... they were systematically dismantled by scholars... with facts, logic and evidence. Evangelical readers will come away with deeper understanding of the various arguments about Jesus. (Sept.)

Format: Hardcover
Every year, it is inevitable that Jesus makes the front page of a handful of newspapers or magazines. Passing by the newsstand, many will recognize his face but the majority will wonder why so much attention is being given to a 2,000 year old dead guy. Yet, Jesus still carries enough intrigue that publishers slap his face on their covers. They do not do this out of respect but because they know he helps them sell their products. They are not alone. His life has been unpacked in books by authors, scholars and poets. His story has been used countless times in movies, television shows and theatrical plays.

To be sure, there are a multitude of lives of Jesus out there and everyone, it seems, wants their version to defend their particular point of view. We hear things like, "Jesus would never drive an SUV", "Jesus wants the troops home", or "Jesus affirms all families". While not everyone claims to be religious, no one wants to appear to go against Jesus--just in case.

With so many opinions floating out there in our information age, how does the average person filter out the facts on Jesus from the spurious speculation? Who was Jesus really? This search to discover the real Jesus is not new. Theologians and scholars have been at it for centuries. They have even given it a formal, academic label called the quest for the historical Jesus. Their quest, often inaccessible to the non-scholar, basically seeks to answer the question: who is the real Jesus?

A stimulating and approachable book, The Case for the Real Jesus, investigates an honest, down-to-earth answer to this question. Relying upon his journalism background, he is convinced the truth can take care of itself and leaves no stone unturned. Strobel writes, "Is it possible to find the real Jesus?

Interesting read, the author covered A LOT of material!
I am not religious and have read many of the books Mr Strobel mentions and had always felt the authors were grasping at "anti Jesus" straws. obviously this book is more biased TOWARDS Jesus being the Christ and messiah, but he made sure to cross examine every person he interviewed. Making the evidence that much more relevant.
Definitely a read for anyone who is interested in how true the story of jesus is.

I really enjoyed this book! It answers alot of questions they dont address in church but should. I have always been someone who has had alot of questions and I have to say that answering tough questions is one of the church's biggest weaknesses. Preaching morals,etc is nice but they should teach apologetics as well. Saying "if you really believed in Jesus you wouldnt need to ask these questions" isnt good enough for me. Im sure those of you who have been raised in the church like I have know that "look" they give you when you ask a question they dont like. And then of course the pious answer that follows which doesnt answer any questions (more than likely because they dont know the answer themselves) but puts you "in your place", ahem! How about we do as Daniel B. Wallace suggests in this book and "Stop treating the Bible with kid gloves." We need to ask tough questions so we can give good, factual, intelligent answers. And thats why books like this are so helpful! :)

This is an excellent book. Do you believe that Jesus is just a myth or a great teacher, but nothing more? If so, check out this book, and the compelling evidence to the contrary. Written in interview format, the case is made not just by a preacher who says, "Well, the Bible says it; therefore it is so," but by a series of highly educated, sophisticated scholars with in depth research behind them. At times, I do find the tone of some of Strobel's narrative segues mildly irritating; nevertheless, the book is highly readable and entertaining, while contributing a wealth of accessible, hard information to the debate on the nature of Christ.

I think this book, and others in Strobel's of "The Case For. . ." series, deserves a place in the library right beside works such as C.S. Lewis' Mere Christianity.
