Book Review – The Case For Christ

Book Reviews Collection cover image

The Case For Christ should be required reading for all Christians. A bold statement, I know, but it truly is an incredible book. I certainly would not say it is the best book I’ve ever read, nor the most profound. But what this book does, and does very well, is set forth in a clear and unequivocal manner, the evidence that Christ existed and that He was exactly who and what He said He was.

The book follows journalist Lee Strobel on his quest to discover the truth about Jesus. His quest begins with his wife’s conversion to Christianity. A staunch atheist, he noticed her life begin to change and through her silent witness started to realize that something real had happened in her life. So, using his skills as a journalist, he set out to find out who Jesus really was. Though he read many books and journals dealing with Jesus, The Case For Christ is essentially a record of his interviews with thirteen eminent scholars, each of whom is an expert in a different area relating to Jesus. Strobel examined, among other things, the life of Jesus, who Jesus said He was, who others said Jesus was and the accuracy of the Scriptures. His examination is detailed and conclusive and ultimately he leaves it to the reader to decide what to do with the evidence.

This book is very well written and can be studied over a course of weeks or read in a couple of evenings. It is a fantastic read for Christians who are interested in learning more about the origins, accuracy and uniqueness of the Bible. It is also an excellent choice for anyone seeking to know more about Christianity and wishing to undertake an examination of the case for Christ.
