Christian Nonfiction Review: The Case For Christ Student Edition

"The Case for Christ" had more reliable sources than I remembered from when I read the book as a teenager (Christian vs. NonChristian sources, etc). Journalist Lee Strobel's original book covers proof for the empty tomb, the resurrection, Jesus' identity as the Messiah, the possible "methods" (as skeptics would posit) of Jesus and His disciples and more. The information in the Student edition is split into easy to follow columns and side notes. This is a good beginners book. I would have liked to have seen more information on the reliability of the Bible, however, since Strobel's arguments depend a great amount on its truth. I did, however, enjoy Strobel's points on the difference between the Telephone Game and Textual Criticism.

*Disclaimer: I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review.
