March Book Corner - Case For Christ by Lee Strobel

The Case For Christ
by Lee Strobel
Case for Christ is an amazing book on apologetics, like all of Strobel’s books are!  Apologetics is a branch of theology that is concerned with proving the truth of Christianity.  Lee Strobel was an atheist (the best kind of teacher on apologetics mind you!) who wanted to prove that Christianity was bogus.  Well, God had other plans for that!  When his wife became a Christian, Strobel began studying the Bible, investigating Biblical claims trying to prove God didn’t exist. During this process, his heart was transformed and he became a Christian!  What a testimony!  Now he is the author of countless books proving that God does in fact exist and that he sent His only Son to die on the cross for us to save us from our sins.  What a great book for all of us to read this Easter season! 
“A seasoned journalist chases down the biggest story on record in The Case for Christ. Retracing his own spiritual journey from atheism to faith, former Chicago Tribune legal editor Lee Strobel cross-examines a dozen experts with tough, point-blank questions in search of credible evidence that Jesus of Nazareth was positively the Son of God. This riveting quest for the truth about history's most compelling figure reads like a captivating, fast-paced novel, yet it's anything but fiction!  An ideal paperback for skeptics!”
