Product Description

From college classrooms to bestselling books to the Internet, the historic picture of Jesus is under an intellectual onslaught. This fierce attack on the traditional portrait of Christ has confused spiritual seekers and created doubt among many Christians - but can these radical new claims and revisionist theories stand up to sober scrutiny?

In this dramatic investigation, award-winning writer and former legal editor Lee Strobel explores such controversial questions as: Did Christianity suppress 'alternative gospels' that portray Jesus more accurately than the New Testament? Did the church distort the truth about Jesus by tampering with early biblical texts? Have fresh insights and explanations finally disproved the resurrection? Were the essential beliefs about Jesus stolen from earlier mythology? Have new objections disqualified Jesus from being the Messiah? Evaluate the evidence for yourself as leading experts grapple with the latest objections from today's foremost critics. Then reach your own verdict in The Case for the Real Jesus.

Publisher's Description

What IS the truth about Jesus?

Today, the traditional picture of Jesus is under an intellectual onslaught from critical scholars, popular historians, TV documentaries, Hollywood movies, bestselling authors, Internet bloggers, and atheist think tanks. They're capturing the public's imagination with a radical new portrait of Jesus that bears scant resemblance to the picture historically embraced by the church.


How persuasive is this new image of Jesus? Is it based on well-supported facts and arguments? Or does it fade away when exposed to the hot light of
scrutiny?


In this dramatic investigation, award-winning writer and former legal editor
Lee Strobel explores such controversial questions as:

  • Did Christianity suppress "alternative gospels" that portray Jesus more
    accurately than the New Testament?
  • Did the church distort the truth about Jesus by tampering with early
    biblical texts?
  • Have fresh insights and explanations finally disproved the resurrection?
  • Were the essential beliefs about Jesus stolen from earlier mythology?
  • Have new objections disqualified Jesus from being the Messiah?


Evaluate the evidence for yourself as leading experts grapple with the latest objections from today's foremost critics. Then reach your own verdict in The Case for the Real Jesus.

    I bought this for my church as we were going through a series of the apologetics. We have a wide difference in the understanding of these questions in our church. Those that are young in their journey are often uneasy to ask questions or don't know what questions to ask. Others are surprised to find the answers to questions they didn't know they had. All are very interested in checking it out and reading it. Lee Strobel is a very good and respected author.

    A great book for anyone who wants to go deeper than "More Than a Carpenter" does for the 'case for Jesus'.

    As a new teacher of Religion at the university level, Strobel's book is a great addition to a solid basis for research and style, in particular for me the defense of Jesus as a historical figure- the attacks on Jesus as the pivotal figure who transformed history have been brutal and growing, and Strobel gave me the solid scholarship and academic research I needed to strengthen my faith in Christ! Amen Lee!

    Strobel was able to strengthen my faith, stimulate my mind and spur my desire for defending the truth. Whether you're a college student, a long-time christian or just curious about Christianity's claims, you can find in this book answers to many questions and objections circulating these days. You could retitle this book The Quest for the Real Jesus.

    In todays world its a book we all should read, even if we have no doubts about the real Jesus. The author gives a lot of useful information that we can use in our defense of our faith when we encounter doubters. I own and have read this book. This particular copy I bought as a gift to someone who has been agnostic but is reevaluating his views. It is a useful tool to all who will read it, believers and doubters alike.
