From the Back Cover

Drawn from Lee Strobel's own experiences as a former atheist engaged in a thorough search for truth, the articles and notes throughout The Case for Christ Study Bible provide a solid explanation of where the historical and scientific evidence point---toward the existence of a compassionate Creator God and his Son, Jesus, the Savior. The Case for Christ Study Bible features more than 500 notes and articles, including: * The Case for a Creator: highlighting the wonders of creation and demonstrating how the scientific evidence supports belief in an all-powerful Creator. * The Case for the Bible: exploring the character of the Bible, the extra-biblical evidence that corroborates scripture, and apparent contradictions. * The Case for Christ: investigating Jesus' claims, Messianic identity, deity, and resurrection. * And much more. The Good News of the Gospel transformed the life of this former atheist. It can do the same for others who commit to examining the evidence for themselves. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

In the interest of full disclosure my wife works for Zondervan Bibles and was the lead manager for this Bible. I am NOT being compensated for this review, other than being married to greatest gal on the planet :)

I have to admit straight away that when my wife told me that she was working on a Bible with Lee Strobel I was skeptical. While I have appreciated Lee's contribution to the Church and greater community for a while, I wondered why we needed yet another Bible product, especially one centered around a Christian celebrity. I thought, "There are Bible's for moms, teens, dads, grandmothers, environmentalists, NASCAR fans, patriots, and even for horse lovers, why on earth do we need yet another one?"

As husbands often are (so I'm learning 6 months into marriage!), I was wrong; this is a sweet, needed Bible, which is why I wanted to write this review for The Case for Christ Study Bible!

Lee has written a much needed companion for the spiritual journeyperson. This is a Bible for both Christians seeking to better understand and investigate their faith AND seekers/skeptics who are trying to better understand Christianity and searching for answers to their spiritual questions. In a manner only he can pull off, Lee consistently presents his case along side the biblical text for the reality of God, reliability of Scripture, rescue brought through Christ, and reasons for putting our hope and faith in Him alone. I can see this Bible being given by a Christian to a seeking friend as much as Christian parents to their maturing teenager; those wondering about Christianity will pick-up this Bible at their local Barnes and Noble as will the longtime Christian who needs better apologetical equipping.

There are a couple of lengthy reviews already posted here so I will not repeat everything they said. I will keep it short, sweet and "high level"! This is an EXCELLENT study Bible that I highly recommend for all audiences no matter if your a curious seeker into the possibility if Christianity could indeed be true, just beginning your Christian walk or have been serving Christ for decades. The content is rewarding and informative for all!

While it's similar in some ways to the two outstanding study Bibles published by Holman ("Apologetics study Bible" and the newest "Apologetics study Bible for students") this is distinctly different from them. I don't get the feeling like I am reading a "remixed" version of those Bibles when I read the Case For Christ study Bible. I see Two major reasons above and beyond only the translation (Case for Christ is NIV, Apologetics bibles are CSB)used for the Bibles. 1.) Different publisher. This being published Zondervan rather than Holman so you see the difference in layout, approach, and unique intent apart from the other two Bibles. 2.) Of course the single BIGGEST factor of difference is that the pages are filled Lee Strobel's comments/articles/clippings from interviews/evidences. They are as expected, fantastic!! (Have not read a Lee Strobel book that was not excellent!)

I now must say that when asked to recommend a Bible I am now torn between the "Case For Christ; Study Bible" and the "Apologetics Study Bible" (both the regular and student version). So, I am PERFECTLY fine with recommending ALL THREE and as someone who has them all and am reading from all 3, I can vouch that you will NOT be disappointed!!

Christians and the church NEED apologetics perhaps now more than ever in history.

First of, I must admit to not having read any of Lee Strobel's popular books, so this is my first introduction to any of his writings. He's been an author who I've been wanting to read for sometime now, but my reading stack remains, as always, too large to acquaint myself with his books. That said, this was a great way to dive into his works and to investigate the reliability of the Bible.

The meat of this study Bible are the "Case for" notes, 500+ articles divided into four sections arguing for the reliability of the Bible, Christ, Faith and the Creator. The articles range in size from a short paragraph or two to a couple of pages, and all provide insightful and well-reasoned arguments. The topics themselves are diverse and cover historical, scientific and theological issues such as Divine Justice, the Resurrection, the Virgin Birth and Earth's Atmosphere, to name just a few. I was happy to see a subject index in the back that allows you to quickly and easily locate a specific article without having to try to guess where you read it. (Although the articles mostly tie into the text's that they're located next to) The articles are all well written and I enjoyed reading them.

A fifth and more unique type of article included is simply called "The Verdict", and provides testimonies from both educated scholars and Christians. I really enjoyed reading these, as they provided a fascinating and personal application to theme of this bible. Unfortunately, not only were these few and far between, there doesn't seem to be an index for these, meaning there's no easy way to find them all. I was disappointed not to see that included, as they were one of my favorite things about this bible.
