A riveting journey to the truth about the most remarkable event in history: The resurrection of Jesus Christ and the proof behind it. From the award-winning, best-selling book, The Case for Christ by Lee Strobel, this 80-page booklet is perfect for Easter or any time of the year. Sold only in twenty packs.
Lee Strobel was the award-winning legal editor of The Chicago Tribune and is the best-selling author of The Case for Faith, The Case for Christ, and The Case for a Creator, all of which have been made into documentaries by Lionsgate. With a journalism degree from the University of Missouri and a Master of Studies in Law degree from Yale, Lee wrote 3 Gold Medallion winners and the 2005 Book of the Year with Gary Poole. He and his wife live in Colorado. Visit Lee's website at: www.leestrobel.com.
This bargain mass market book is like a cross between Strobel's own Gold
Medallion winner The Case for Christ and Josh McDowell's classic evangelical
apologetic work Evidence That Demands a Verdict. Strobel, a former journalist
for the Chicago Tribune, affirms that Christ really did die on the cross, and
not just faint from exhaustion; that he experienced a bodily, and not just a
spiritual, resurrection; and that he was seen alive after his death. In
journalistic style, he interviews several experts (including Gary Habermas,
whose book on the same topic is reviewed above), corrects inaccuracies (the
nails would have been driven through Jesus' wrists, we learn, and not his
palms) and tells stories. But at its heart, this is an editorial rather than a
journalistic account, as Strobel most definitely has an opinion and wants
readers to share his own pilgrimage from doubt to rock-solid faith. Not all
readers will be convinced, but this well-written, fast-paced book will give
them plenty to think about. (Feb.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
