Format: Paperback
Lee Strobel's "The Case for the Resurrection: A First-Century Investigative Reporter Probes History's Pivotal Event," is a power-packed booklet (almost 100 pages) that offers compelling evidence for the resurrection of Jesus Christ. "The Case for the Resurrection" is helpful and readable and makes a great evidential introduction for this essential truth of Christianity.

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.

The content is condensed, which as someone who struggles to get enough reading time is an appreciated feature. But just how small the book is was a surprise. If you're looking for a high-level overview of the historical case for the resurrection, this is a useful read.

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.

Format: Paperback
This booklet may be short, but it's packed full of wonderful insights from Lee Strobel on the crucifixion and resurrection. The booklet starts off with Lee explaining his "journey into the evidence" and this gives the reader some background into his path to faith. The booklet also has an appendix which gives Matthew's, Mark's, and John's account of the death and resurrection of Jesus. Something that I found particular helpful when comparing them to Luke's account. This booklet is a great introduction to "The Case for Christ Study Bible" which I will be getting very soon!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I loved "the case for christ." However, this book is probably the least useful book on the resurrection that I have read. Most of the very small book consists of the 4 gospel accounts of the resurrection. I already have about 30 bibles, so that was not useful.

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.

My only problem is that I wish I had about 50 copies of this to give out. It is amazing if you want to learn and share about Christ's resurrection from a factual point of view. Of course, I know the Bible is fact, but many people may need some convincing. This booklet will do it and in an interesting way. I have seen the video also and Lee gives an honest account of his athiestic view of Christianity and how he was converted just by studying the known facts. Great read!!

The research and facts support the evidence that Jesus is real. He did die and was resurrected. I have many friends that don't believe the bible is accurate but this writer a former atheist, journalist for the Chicago Tribune and lawyer presents a compelling case for Christ. I liked the fact that he supported historical events from other manuscripts and non Christians that acknowledged the historical facts. This book is definitely worth reading.

Loved the author's perspective. His unique background made the book much more interesting, and his research piled up the evidence in favor of the resurrection. Read the whole book in about an hour or so. It's a quick, easy read yet filled with valuable content. I recommend it to anyone.
