Although Lee Strobel’s book, The Case for Christ, takes some energy to read thoroughly, it is well worth the effort. Strobel, a former legal editor of the Chicago Tribune, retraces his own spiritual journey from atheism to faith.
In the book, Strobel cross-examines a dozen individuals who are experts in their fields. Strobel finds that the evidence is overwhelming that Jesus was God, died on the cross, resurrected on the third day, and was seen alive by hundreds of eye-witnesses. Faced with the weight of the evidence in the case for Christ, Strobel moves from his athiest position and becomes a follower of Christ.
