The Case For Christ: Faith and Science Resource

One of my all-time favorite books is The Case For Christ by Lee Strobel. I was required to read it for a class in college at a time when I was questioning my own faith and the existence of God. This book was one of the most influential in my decision to accept Christ as my Savior. Strobel is an excellent author and detailed researcher. This book answered so many of my questions, especially those regarding evidence for the historical Jesus.

Strobel did not stop at presenting the evidence. He sought to help the reader understand the various types of evidence and how they supports the case. The brilliance of this book is its ability to keep the reader’s attention. I did not want to put this book down. It was not dry or dull as one might expect a book on evidence or history to be. If you or someone you know is searching for the truth about Jesus or to deepen their understanding of who He was as a person on earth than check this book out. For those like me who prefer to listen rather than read check out the audiobook version here.

The most exciting part is that Strobel did not stop at writing a book! There is a great study guide to go along with the book for group or personal study. Even better is that in less than one week The Case For Christ movie come out! It will be a recreation of Strobel’s own search into Christ. Check out the trailer below and click the link to get tickets! http://thecaseforchristmovie.com/

This is not the first film though. Strobel made a documentary reviewing the evidence for Christ along with interviews from several leading figures. It is just as intriguing as the book and provides footage of many of the historical items discussed in an entertaining and educational manner. You can watch it free here. Finally, Zondervan published The Case For Christ Study Bible which includes articles and facts inserted directly alongside relevant passages. It is laid out much like an archeological study bible. It is perfect for people like me who grow in their faith through intellectual material to supplement their bible reading.
