The Case for the Real Jesus

I started a new discussion on Lee Strobel on Amazon.com with some of the comments below. I had a chance to review his soon to be published book, The Case for the Real Jesus.

This is the most useful book he has written yet. He addresses many of the concerns raised by those outside the Christian faith. As usual with Strobel, the book is a collection of interviews he held with noted authorities on various aspects of the historical Jesus.

He especially addresses the particular issues I see raised on the internet. The sections on the influence of pagan religions on early Christianity, the early composition and distribution of the gospels, and the selection of the books included in the traditional New Testament are particularly helpful.

His straight forward, journalistic style of writing powerfully brings home the knowledge and convictions of those scholars and experts he interviews. I highly recommend this book.
