A journalist investigates the most recent attacks against the identity of Christ. The figure of Jesus has become the target of an intellectual war, and receives continuous attacks from different flanks: classrooms in universities, bestsellers, and the internet. These violent attacks against the traditional image of Christ have confused many people with spiritual inquiries and have sown doubt among many Christians. But, what happens if we submit all these radical affirmations and revisionist theories to a detailed test? In The Case For the Real Jesus, awarded legal editor Strobel asks polemic questions like: Did the church hide ancient extra-biblical documents that offered a more approximate picture of Jesus than the four gospels? Did the church distort the truth about Jesus, manipulating the ancient texts of the New Testament? Is it true that new discoveries and explanations discredit the resurrection? Are the new arguments that say that Jesus is not the Messiah true? Has Christianity acquired its basic ideas from mythology? It evaluates the arguments and evidence that prominent atheists, liberal theologians, Muslim academics and others have presented. He examines them carefully, and then renders his own verdict on The Case for the Real Jesus.
