This New book features:
Fresh insights from Lee Strobel's new "The Case for Christ Study Bible," as the author covers the story of Christ rising from the grave from the Gospel of Luke with outstanding notes from "The Case for Christ Study Bible." The proof is potent, the writing is engaging, and the author has a true passion for the subject.
Remember that the Apostles saw the risen Christ, touched the risen Christ, and died tortuous deaths proclaiming its truth when all thy had to do was deny it; yes many people die for lies, but no collective, diverse group of people die for what they Know is a complete lie.
Furthermore all known ancient documents that refer to the subject report an empty tomb. Even though the manner in which one accepts or rejects the evidence on the historicity of the ancient documents and other papyrus is controlled by one's presuppositions, the facts are mighty; the evidence is there, and is impressive, but there is an important distinction between proof and persuasion.
Note the evidence for the resurrection of Christ is:
- 100's of eyewitnesses testified under the threat of death that they saw the risen Jesus including 500 people at one time. All the apostles, except one, died a horrible death knowing they saw Jesus alive from the dead. 100's more died because they would not recant the fact that they saw the risen Jesus.Read more ›
I find Strobel's writing style a little patronizing, but appreciate his dedication to clearly and simply communicating his point.
As with most of Strobel's work, the nut of the argument is this: if you are open to the existence of God (and in this case, the resurrection) the resurrection is the most adequate explanation for the recorded history. The natural counterpoint (which the author does not address as directly) is that if you are not open to the existence of God (or in this case to the possibility of resurrection) no amount of historical evidence is going to seem relevant to you.
In other words, if you're starting with the assumption that deity is unlikely and resurrection is (thus) inherently impossible, this book may irritate you. If you start with the assumption that deity is probable and that resurrection is (thus) inherently possible, you may find that the book argues quite elegantly that Jesus's resurrection is not only possible but likely from a historical point of view.
I thought he would use the same investigative reporting style that he used in "case for christ." nope.
there are many better books on the resurrection out there.
