Christian Nonfiction Review: The Case for the Real Jesus by Lee Strobel
The contents of "The Case for the Real Jesus" could easily be split up and put into their own full-length books. Strobel deals extensively with support for the Bible's authenticity, for example. Let's see a "Case for the Old and New Testaments" next, eh? Other topics include Jesus' resurrection (dealt with extensively in another Strobel book), whether Christianity copied other religions, whether or not Jesus fulfilled the Old Testament, and Relativism in the modern age.
It's an easy ready (although my e-book review copy had a lot of format issues) and provides plenty of information I hadn't read before, but I would still like to see him do a more extensive treatment of topics like the Gnostic gospels.
*Disclaimer: I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review.
