Priced to give away, this "investigation" into Christ's death answers three crucial questions seekers ask: Was Jesus' deatha sham? Was his tomb really empty? Was he seen alive after his death on the cross? Strobel's award-winning skills as a legal journalist will persuade even the most hard-boiledskeptics to reconsider Jesus'death and resurrection. 95 pages, softcover from Willow.
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.
