The Case for Christ
A Journalist's Personal Investigation of the Evidence for Jesus
by Lee Strobel
published by Zondervan, Grand Rapids, Michigan
I had heard and read of this book before, but not read The Case for Christ myself until it
was given away at a funeral recently. Lynne had ordered enough so that anyone who wanted it, could
have a copy.
What a good plan! This is an excellent book for those are not sure about Christ, and will remove all
obstacles to faith an open mind might have. It is also a good book for people to read who already
have a strong faith and commitment to Christ. It will encourage you to see the overwhelming evidence
that Christ did come and died for us. Furthermore, it will give you answers for the skeptics you
meet from time to time, who think they can punch holes in your faith.
Lee Strobel was trained in law, but used that training as a legal and court reporter for many years
in Chicago. He understood the importance of examining all the different types of evidence, and
searching thoroughly for the truth that withstands all cross-examination. When his wife turned to
faith in Christ, Lee resolved to treat Jesus Christ as someone to be examined as in a court of law.
Strobel did this for 21 months, researching many authorities, and writing up his findings as
interviews with them.
Using legal methods and standards, he examined the eyewitness testimonies, and tested them for
accuracy. He did the same with documentary evidence, corroberating evidence, and scientific
evidence. He even allowed or sought out rebuttal evidence.
Then Strobel analyzed Jesus, looking at proofs of his identity, what his psychological state was
(from the Biblical records), and built a profile of him. He asked the hard questions to determine
whether Jesus, and Jesus alone matched the identity of the Messiah.
This was not all. Strobel hunted down medical evidence for Jesus' ressurrection. He checked out the
missing body theories, and the evidence of his appearances after his resurrection. He summed up all
the circumstantial evidence, and finally established the verdict of history, showing how Jesus is
better documented and proved than any other historical fact exsisting today!
This book has been published in many printings and editions since 1998, and is already a classic for
the seeker of Truth. Also a great reassurance to those who already know the truth. I felt so
affirmed in my faith, and ready to tell others with great enthusiasm. I recommend The Case for
