I read “The Case for Christ” some fifteen years ago.
It had quite an impact on me because of the approach used by the author, Lee Strobel. Mr. Strobel was a journalist for the Chicago Tribune back in the 70s, who was also an atheist. When his wife became a Christian, it bugged him. There was a part of her life in which he couldn’t share.
What to do about it? Well what else but to disprove Christ’s divinity!
Mr. Strobel approached the task as the investigative journalist that he was. He posed the challenges of believing in Christ to historians, theologians, scientists, and philosophers who provided such a persuasive case in favor of His divinity, that Strobel ended up becoming a Christian!
The evidence and the logic of the veracity of Christian claims was and is compelling.
Now they’ve made a movie of his story. Watch the trailer above. I recommend the book, but haven’t seen the movie yet.
I’ve read four of his books and recommend each:
√ The Case for Christ.
√ The Case for Faith.
√ The Case for a Creator.
√ The Case for the Real Jesus.
Like C.S. Lewis, Strobel doesn’t get into denominational issues between Catholics and Protestants. He hones in on all the reasons to disbelieve and leaves you with a richly enhanced faith in God.
