I had studied history, sifted archaeology, asked questions and analyzed answers with as much of an open mind as I could muster. Now I had reached critical mass. The evidence seemed clear. The one remaining issue was what I would do with it.
Lee Strobel is on a journey of evidence for the case of Christ. Was he the Son of God, why did he die on the cross, was the resurrection a tale, testing the eyewitness. the biographies of Christ, and much more. Fourteen chapters that each include a interview with a known expert. Strobel is a journalist by profession and each chapter also starts with his own parallel to what he is investigating.
The one that I was most intrigued with was with the Jewish history and Christ. As a Christian, I think behooves us to know more about the Jewish culture. Louis S Lapides was interviewed. A Jewish believer that had a very interesting journey of his own to come to faith. It was a train wreck of faith. His searching lead to dabbling into other religions until he started searching the scriptures himself. He saw Jesus in the Old Testament and has started to read the new, it begin to make sense.
It is a struggle to believe and know that there is a God and I appreciate those that share that struggle. The word says that WE all are hostile towards God and it is by his grace he makes himself known to us. This book is a direction for readers to know God and those that struggle and have come to faith!
