Product Description

Did Jesus of Nazareth really rise from the dead?

Of the many world religions, only one claims that its founder returned from the grave. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the very cornerstone of Christianity.

But a dead man coming back to life? In our sophisticated age, when myth has given way to science, who can take such a claim seriously? Some argue that Jesus never died on the cross. Conflicting accounts make the empty tomb seem suspect.

How credible is the evidence for the resurrection? Focusing his award-winning skills as a legal journalist on history's most compelling enigma, Lee Strobel retraces the startling findings that led him from atheism to belief. Drawing on expert testimony first shared in his blockbuster book The Case for Christ, Strobel examines:
  • The medical evidence - Was Jesus' death a sham and his resurrection a hoax?
  • The evidence of the missing body - Was Jesus' body really absent from his tomb?
  • The evidence of appearances - Was Jesus seen alive after his death on the cross?
Priced to give away and written in a hard-hitting journalist style, The Case for Easter probes the core issues of the resurrection. Jesus Christ, risen from the dead: superstitious myth or life-changing reality? The evidence is in. The verdict is up to you.

Publisher's Description

How credible is the evidence for, and against, the resurrection of Jesus Christ? Focusing his award-winning skills as a legal journalist on history's most compelling enigma, Lee Strobel retraces the startling findings that led him from atheism to belief in the biblical New Testament story.

Publisher's Weekly

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.

    Lee Strobel's thorough investigation led him to accept Truth. His life was changed. This book erases any doubts that the skeptic may have; faith is enhanced. I especially appreciated the review of how many people saw Jesus following His resurrection. I can share The Good News with greater confidence.

    The books only cost .99 cents each at the time, and it's a small but very persuasive explanation of the truth of Jesus' resurrection. It can persuade nonbelievers to put their faith in Jesus, and it will strengthen the faith of believers! Highly recommended!

Q: What is the gospel presentation like in the booklet? I was hoping I could see if Lee encourages folks to repent and believe on Jesus Christ. I want to know if I buy these to give them to people that they not only get an evidence book but a solid gospel presentation.

A:

In the conclusion of the book Lee Strobel shares his own conversion experience. He explains that now that he had all the evidence, there was a choice he needed to make - to believe.

He says '...I talked with God in a heartfelt and unedited prayer, admitting and turning from all wrong doing, and receiving the free gift of forgiveness and eternal life through Jesus.' He then goes on to share about how his life and character changed in the following months.
