The Case For Christ book
Lee Strobel wrote the book in 1998. His wife, Leslie, reassured him to write his experience about his spiritual trek from being an atheist to being a man of faith. Also to write about the proof that assured him that Jesus was indeed the only Son of God. He retraced his steps and dove into the depth of his experiences while interviewing different experts and professors on different topics from accuracy and authenticity of the Gospels and the resurrection of Jesus. He was somewhat doubtful if the book what something someone would publish. In the 90's, books about proof of faith and apologetics were not sought-after. Zondervan Publishing made the book possible and all were amazed at the feedback. To this day more than five million people have read the book including young people who have shown the interest of discovering the book that inspired The Case For Christ DVD.
Strobel says that since writing The Case For Christ, his faith has become more profound and strong. That the proof of Jesus' existence and accuracy of the Bible is even more compelling and convincing than ever.
The new version of the Case For Christ written by Lee is quite different from the original. He added a Q&A section, helping others to answer analysts, to talk about the impact of the book and how it was put together. There is updated material like the written proof for the Bible and archaeological uncoverings. Basically information that wasn't available when the book was first written and published. There's also a section of recommended books and references in general. When the book was originally published there wasn't many books with the material needed so he added the name of some books and resources that would help the reader in their journey.
The most challenging question Strobel asked while writing The Case For Christ was if Jesus did really come back from the dead and claim to be the Son of God. Originally being a skeptic, Strobel was stunned that there was so much evidence of the resurrection that indeed made it true. Whether it was through reports or ancient antecedents, it made Lee genuinely amazed by the abundance and descriptions that confirmed the true existence of Jesus. So for him to see the image of Jesus is like being in a river whose current is quickly moving. And to deny Jesus is like swimming contrary to the movement of the river. It becomes something that is not logical. For Lee Strobel what makes sense, based on all the firmness of the evidence of Jesus' existence, is to go in the same way that the proof is leading you. And that way it establishes your confidence in Jesus as your commander. That sometimes there will be some confusing areas but the real proof of Jesus and Christianity makes all the doubt go away. To him being a follower of Jesus has been comforting and encouraging.
