9781594152405: The Case for the Real Jesus: A Journalist Investigates Current Attacks on the Identity of Christ (Christian Large Print Softcover)

A CBA Bestseller, A New York Times Bestselling Author -- Today, the traditional picture of Jesus is under an intellectual onslaught from many quarters. They're capturing the public's imagination with a radical new portrait of Jesus that bears scant resemblance to the picture historically embraced by the church. How persuasive is this new image of Jesus? Is it based on well-supported facts and arguments -- or does it fade away when exposed to the hot light of scrutiny? In this dramatic investigation, award-winning writer and former legal editor Lee Strobel explores these controversial questions and others. Evaluate the evidence for yourself as leading experts grapple with the latest objection from today's foremost critics. Then reach your own verdict. Lee Strobel, with a journalism degree from the University of Missouri and a master of studies in law degree from Yale Law School, was the award-winning legal editor of the Chicago Tribune and a spiritual skeptic until 1981. His books include Four Gold Medallion winners and the 2005 Christian Book of the Year (co-authored with Garry Poole). He and his wife live in California.

From the Back Cover:

Has modern scholarship debunked the traditional Christ? Has the church suppressed the truth about Jesus to advance its own agenda? What if the real Jesus is far different from the atoning Savior worshipped through the centuries? In The Case for the Real Jesus, former award-winning legal editor Lee Strobel explores such hot-button questions as: • Did the church suppress ancient non-biblical documents that paint a more accurate picture of Jesus than the four Gospels? • Did the church distort the truth about Jesus by tampering with early New Testament texts? • Do new insights and explanations finally disprove the resurrection? • Have fresh arguments disqualified Jesus from being the Messiah? • Did Christianity steal its core ideas from earlier mythology? Evaluate the arguments and evidence being advanced by prominent atheists, liberal theologians, Muslim scholars, and others. Sift through expert testimony. Then reach your own verdict in The Case for the Real Jesus.
