This bargain mass market book is like a cross between Strobel's own Gold Medallion winner The Case for Christ and Josh McDowell's classic evangelical apologetic work Evidence That Demands a Verdict. Strobel, a former journalist for the Chicago Tribune, affirms that Christ really did die on the cross, and not just faint from exhaustion; that he experienced a bodily, and not just a spiritual, resurrection; and that he was seen alive after his death. In journalistic style, he interviews several experts (including Gary Habermas, whose book on the same topic is reviewed above), corrects inaccuracies (the nails would have been driven through Jesus' wrists, we learn, and not his palms) and tells stories. But at its heart, this is an editorial rather than a journalistic account, as Strobel most definitely has an opinion and wants readers to share his own pilgrimage from doubt to rock-solid faith. Not all readers will be convinced, but this well-written, fast-paced book will give them plenty to think about.

The book is written as a narrative of a series of interviews with leading scholars on the facts of the Easter story in which the arguments against the essential creed of our faith are brought out and refuted. References are well documented and footnoted so that further research can be carried out.
A strength of this book is the fact that it can serve as a sort of "Cliffs Notes" summarizing a subject that there have been countless books written about from all positions both pro and con. The footnotes and documented references make this book an excellent outline for further study.
As a believer, I highly recommend this short book to anyone seeking after evidences concerning the essential creed of the Bible on the death, burial and resurrection of Christ!
To locate actual truth. All sides and all aspects must be explored, and this book is a great start!
