Publisher's Description

Who was in the manger that first Christmas morning? Some say he would become a great moral leader. Others, a social critic. Still others view Jesus as a profound philosopher, a rabbi, a feminist, a prophet, and more. Many are convinced he was the divine Son of God. Who was he—really? And how can you know for sure? Consulting experts on the Bible, archaeology, and messianic prophecy, Lee Strobel searches out the true identity of the child in the manger. Join him as he asks the tough, pointed questions you’d expect from an award-winning legal journalist. If Jesus really was God in the flesh, then there ought to be credible evidence, including Eyewitness Evidence—Can the biographies of Jesus be trusted? Scientific Evidence—What does archaeology reveal? Profile Evidence—Did Jesus fulfill the attributes of God? Fingerprint Evidence—Did Jesus uniquely match the identity of the Messiah? The Case for Christmas invites you to consider why Christmas matters in the first place. Somewhere beyond the traditions of the holiday lies the truth. It may be more compelling than you’ve realized. Weigh the facts . . . and decide for yourself.

    Great Book. Definitely a worth while read

    First off, you can read this book in a day. It took me maybe 4-6 hours and i am not a fast reader by any means. The content was wonderful. It was similar to a lot of the author's other works, but it had some good differences. The first two chapters are the absolute best and those chapters alone are worth the purchase of the book. They give great evidence for the reliability of the gospels, and the archeology and science that supports the bible. The next two chapters are not as good, but good none the less. This book is great for understanding the science and facts that can help back up your beliefs are even open the pathway for you or others who do not know the facts behind their different beliefs. In no means is this an evangelical book, but it can be given to people who like a factual read. You can read this anytime throughout the year, but is especially applicable during the holiday season. Worth the money and time for sure.

    I liked this book. Lee Strobel is an investigative journalist. He presents the article, the news story "The Case For Christmas". It's short at only 91 pages. I like his research, his analysis & presentation. He's presenting a case to us. He's consulted experts & those knowledgeable in the bible. I appreciate his fact finding and final conclusion: "that the freshly born baby in the manger was the unique Son of God, sent on a mission to be the savior of the world."

    I purchased many of this book for gifts. Our class at church is on apologetics and I know this book (along with all his other books) will help us all learn what we need to share with others. I appreciate how Lee Strobel helps us learn the facts.

    I gave this little book to the women in my Bible study as a Christmas gift. They really appreciated it and some plan to share it with family and friends. The fact that it so small and easy to read makes it a wonderful outreach tool.

    I enjoyed this little booklet. I was afraid I would have difficulty understanding this material, but I did not. It was easy to understand and very interesting. Great apologetic to give out to friends and family who may be skeptics or still "testing the water" so-to-speak. Helps refocus people on the true meaning of Christmas.
