Reviews - What do customers think about Case For Christ Student Edition (Pack of 6)?
Good Feb 18, 2007
Slow shiping but I guess that is b/c I choose the cheapest method. Got all my books the way they said.
Weighing the evidence--Reader's Digest version Jan 10, 2007
I was disappointed that the Student Edition didn't address the evidence for the reality of Christ in the same order as the original book (The Case for Christ, by Lee Strobel). I would have liked to use them together in my study group. The Student Edition does have some things in tables and charts that may make the information easier to grasp. The Student Edition was short on information about the reliability of the Bible, which is an area in which the kids I'm working with need more help.
Great for youth. Jan 9, 2007
I'm a youth pastor and this gives simple but solid explanations for questions asked by my kids fellow students. Very good tool.
The Case For Christ is Enlightening for Christians and Skeptics Sep 30, 2005
Like many American Christians, I was brought to church most Sundays and endured countless sermons and lessons. Despite this seemingly rich education on Christian principles, I never was exposed to a lesson or class on the existence of God; God's existence was assumed as fact. As I matured into my twenties and went to college, the existance of God was no longer taken for granted. I encountered many agnostics and atheists among my many college professors. The net result of their influence was to question my faith in the existance of God. I never lost my faith, but I found it was a faith that could not withstand scrutiny.
Reading Lee Stobel's "The Case For Christ" began in me my search for the certainty of my faith. Strobel's book is an excellent place to start. He presents interviews with several Christian apologetics that involve issues related to the veracity of the Biblical account of Christ, the Son of God.
The issues are as follows:
The trustworthiness of the Gospel accounts. Historical evidences for Christ outside of the Bible. Archaeology and the Life of Christ The "Jesus Seminar" account of the life of Christ. Did Jesus claim to be equal with God? Is Jesus the promised scripture's Messiah? Did Jesus really die on the cross? Did Jesus really rise from the dead?
Mr. Strobel investigates each issue thoroughly. He approaches the issues as a skeptic who wants to be convinced of the truth. Apparently, Strobel was once a skeptic himself and his investigative journalism convinced him of the truth of his childhod faith in Christ. The only weakness I could find in the book is the lack of rebuttal from those individuals who do not believe in the deity of Jesus. Strobel claims to be the main rebuttal witness, as he assumes the skeptical viewpoint, but he is writing from the position of a believer, and his rebuttals are perhaps not as forceful as a "true" unbeliever.
If you have questions like I did, (and as did Strobel), then this is a good starting point for your journey. There are other books that go into complete detail on all the issues raised here, and you may want to purchase these as well. But this is a very good starting point for answering those nagging doubts about your faith in Christianity and one's faith in the person of Jesus.
