The book consists primarily of interviews between Strobel (a former legal editor at the Chicago Tribune) and biblical scholars such as Bruce Metzger. Each interview is based on a simple question, concerning historical evidence (for example, "Can the Biographies of Jesus Be Trusted?"), scientific evidence, ("Does Archaeology Confirm or Contradict Jesus' Biographies?"), and "psychiatric evidence" ("Was Jesus Crazy When He Claimed to Be the Son of God?"). Together, these interviews compose a case brief defending Jesus' divinity, and urging readers to reach a verdict of their own.

There’s little question that he actually lived. But miracles? Rising from the dead? Some of the stories you hear about him sound like just that--stories. A reasonable person would never believe them, let alone the claim that he’s the only way to God! But a reasonable person would also make sure that he or she understood the facts before jumping to conclusions. That’s why Lee Strobel--an award-winning legal journalist with a knack for asking tough questions--decided to investigate Jesus for himself. An atheist, Strobel felt certain his findings would bring Christianity’s claims about Jesus tumbling down like a house of cards. He was in for the surprise of his life. Join him as he retraces his journey from skepticism to faith. You’ll consult expert testimony as you sift through the truths that history, science, psychiatry, literature, and religion reveal. Like Strobel, you’ll be amazed at the evidence--how much there is, how strong it is, and what it says. The facts are in. What will your verdict be in The Case for Christ?

This timeless, compelling, and thought-provoking book on the Christian faith, now updated, includes two all-new chapters, a current list of recommended resources for further study, and a new discussion guide. In The Case for Faith, bestselling author, journalist, and former atheist Lee Strobel turns his investigative skills to the most persistent emotional objections to belief in God--the eight "heart barriers" to faith: "Since evil and suffering exist, a loving God cannot" "Since miracles contradict science, they cannot be true" "Evolution explains life, so God isn't needed" "God isn't worthy of worship if he kills innocent children" "It's offensive to claim Jesus is the only way to God" "A loving God would never torture people in hell" "Church history is littered with oppression and violence" "I still have doubts, so I can't be a Christian" This bestselling book is for those who may be feeling attracted to Jesus but who are faced with difficult questions standing squarely in their path. For Christians, it will deepen their convictions and give them fresh confidence in defending their faith to skeptical friends, or during the hardest of times, when they have to defend their faith to themselves in moments of doubt. Also available: The Case for Faith Spanish edition, kids' edition, and student edition. Plus, be sure to check out Lee Strobel's entire collection of Case for... books: The Case for Christ investigates the historical evidence for Jesus The Case for a Creator explores the scientific evidence for God The Case for Grace uncovers the "how" and "why" behind God's amazing grace . . . and more!

The Answer Book: A Devotional for Busy Families recognizes that today’s families keep hectic schedules, often leaving mere scraps of time for asking and answering spiritual questions. Nancy Ruth brings years of experience in children’s ministry and a master’s degree in theology to bear in crafting a seven-week set of daily devotions that offers families assistance in exploring how to live as Christians. Adults, who sometimes find children challenging them with hard questions about the Christian life, will find The Answer Book enables them to ask those questions as a family, to listen to God’s Word, and to discover its answers. Each weekly section addresses a major topic, including truth, the reasons for spending time with God, the identity of Jesus, and family discipleship. Each daily devotion shares a brief reflection, suggests a Bible reading, presents an “On the Road” challenge to the family, and calls for a “Weapon Check,” in which one memorizes key scriptural passages. As you spend time around your children, you may wonder what drives them to ask endlessly, “Why?” The Answer Book: A Devotional for Busy Families gives you a structured—yet flexible—way to turn small blocks of time into moments for taking seriously their deep and heartfelt questions. By spending some time together as a family with these questions and with the message God reveals in the Scriptures, you will grow together to trust God more fully, to build your lives on a strong foundation, and to be prepared for life’s coming challenges.
