A Seasoned Journalist Chases Down the Biggest Story in History Is there credible evidence that Jesus of Nazareth really is the Son of God? Retracing his own spiritual journey from atheism to faith, Lee Strobel, former legal editor of the Chicago Tribune, cross-examines a dozen experts with doctorates from schools like Cambridge, Princeton, and Brandeis who are recognized authorities in their own fields. Strobel challenges them with questions like How reliable is the New Testament? Does evidence for Jesus exist outside the Bible? Is there any reason to believe the resurrection was an actual event? Strobel's tough, point-blank questions make this Gold Medallion-winning book read like a captivating, fast-paced novel. But it's not fiction. It's a riveting quest for the truth about history's most compelling figure. What will your verdict be in The Case for Christ? 'Lee Strobel probes with bulldog-like tenacity the evidence for the truth of biblical Christianity.' Bruce M. Metzger, Ph.D., Professor of New Testament, Emeritus, Princeton Theological Seminary 'Lee Strobel asks the questions a tough-minded skeptic would ask. His book is so good I read it out loud to my wife evenings after dinner. Every inquirer should have it.' Phillip E. Johnson, Law Professor, University of California at Berkeley

Doubt is familiar territory for Lee Strobel, the former atheist and award-winning author of books for skeptics and Christians. But he believes that faith and reason go hand in hand, and that Christianity is a defensible religion. In this six-session video curriculum, Strobel uses his journalistic approach to explore the most common emotional obstacles to faith in Christ.

They also include this compelling question: Can I doubt and be a Christian? Through compelling video of personal stories and experts addressing these topics, combined with reflection and interaction, Christians and spiritual seekers will learn how to overcome these obstacles, deepen their spiritual convictions, and find new confidence that Christianity is a reasonable faith.

In a small town, it is a gossip inducing sight: In a pew sits a mother with her two children, alone. "Is that lady divorced?" "The father is that blond guy who worked at the grocery store." "I can't believe it! He seemed like such a nice guy. Why isn't he in church with his family?" "He said he is no longer a Christian." "No longer a Christian? Got into drugs?" "I don't know. Didn't seem like a drunk. He said something about problems with the Bible, but DUH! Maybe there's another woman." "Well, he's sure not a good role-model for his kids." The author hasn't heard that conversation, and actually probably never would in his lovely kindhearted small town. But he feels it. And he has had to deal with the question "Why aren't you in church with your family?" When verbal explanations failed, he began this written defense that even Joe Sixpack can understand. The implications of the evangelical fundamentalist worldview initiated his skepticism, but it was the Bible that finally drove him from his born-again roots. They don't put these scriptures in sermons, and being born-again may turn out to be something completely different. One bright Sunday at the age of 18, the author's life took an unexpected turn. A book was reviewed in the Sunday school class of his small-town Presbyterian church: Hal Lindsey's Late Great Planet Earth. Suddenly everything was different. The world was coming to an end; Jesus was coming back. He dropped a scholarship in chemical engineering at the University of Tulsa and transferred to Oral Roberts University. After a theology degree, he went on for geology degrees at the state universities of Oklahoma and Colorado with the goal of getting involved in evolution/creation research and the search for Noah's Ark. But nine years after his entrance into the world of fundamentalist evangelical Christianity, he had to walk out. His disgust with the evangelical worldview, combined with a realization of what the Bible actually contained drove him away. Eighteen years after his exit, his children and then his wife drifted into that same fundamentalist world, which he metaphorically describes as Godlyland. He could not accompany them. Just hearing about the rides in there brought back memories of mental nausea. Inquiries regarding why he wasn't in church with his family reopened old wounds and motivated this description of his own trip to Godlyland, his reasons for leaving, and his recently discovered evidence for eternal life, from an entirely different direction.
