This is an excellent book for a skeptic. The author was very thorough in his research. He had conversations with scholors, anthropologists, theologians and philosophers. A former atheist, the author, asks questions and receives answers that prove that Jesus Christ was the Son of God.
This is a Christian apologetic written by a journalist to record his journey from atheism to Christianity. The book was recommended to me by a nonagenarian who found her faith built up by the rational arguments. Many people will find this book both enriching and persuasive. As a Christian and as a pastor I would be glad to have all people read this. However, my postmodern tendencies caused me to be constantly distracted by the arrogance of Christians whose philosophical stance is modern and who cannot put themselves into the philosophical shoes of the postmodern person. One example is the story of a convincing theologian who entered into a forum with a group of atheists and agnostics. At the end of the forum, forty seven became Christians because of that rational presentation, but not one became an atheist. The reading style served to emphasize the annoying arrogance. I would love to hear James Spader read this book in the character of Alan Shore, from the TV Series Boston Legal.
What an incredible book! Impeccable research and compelling evidence. Jesus is the Christ.
Lee is not a fanatic, and offers great scientific facts to back up his case. There are a few "boring" intensive scientific areas, but not enough to distract from the underlying theme of the book. It kept me listening.
A good read. It really secures your foundation for believing in Christ. Read it.
I enjoyed this book. I liked the way the author visited so many people & descibed each persons background & appearance. You can tell invesigation was his speciality. However the voices or I should say change of voice tones could have been improved. Maybe the audio could have been read by more than one person.
I've 'read' all of them, except the latest which I just bought - the Case for the Real Jesus - and they are truly excellent. The Case for Creator is very technical, but truly excellent too.
I really liked this book. It was almost conversational, but in a good way. I liked the reader and the information was invaluable.
great book, kept you interested at all times. Would read more from that author.
WOW! WOW! WOW! I know that's not eloquent, but that's what I kept thinking as I was reading this book. I thank God that I didn't need physical evidence to believe in him; but I am also thankful that those that do need it...it's out there. Would I recommend this book? Yes!!!
