Me encanta la apologética. Y más cuando autores como Lee Strobel son tan honestos respecto de lo que estudian/descubren y que, en parte, es gracias a su ateísmo previo a su conversión.

Este libro, puntualmente, responde a 4 cuestionamientos que provienen de distintas fuentes y que plantean que Jesús fue solo un "gran sabio" (sin reconocer su divinidad), alguien en quién no podemos confiar completamente por causa de los miles de errores que la Biblia posee al haber sido copiada de textos antiguos

100 packed pages, handbook, so it is very easy to read, to reference, and to retain. Also pg 98-99 gives a solid summary of each of Strobel's 5 key points. What I loved about the book was the extensive, scholar research, referencing supporters and critics who come to the same historical and ancient literature conclusions, generally well refuting the "pseudo-scholarship" we see coming out today claiming new found information about Jesus. Every challenge was addressed well.

Due to the very small si

Quick read and a re-hash of previously published work. For me this was a great introductory tool for use with my junior and senior high school Sunday school students. Easy to follow and great conversation starters. If you're looking for something more comprehensive/deeper, go with Strobe's other works. But for the price and use I got out of it, it worked well.

This is a short 100 page book that is very much like Strobel's famous The Case for Christ. Strobel poses five questions that skeptics raise and then gets top theologians to provide us with answers. Strobel is a former attorney and you can tell the way he writes since it reads like a brief. I always enjoy his books. If you have questions about Jesus give it a look.

Short and sweet, but lots of good information. An enjoyable read like his other books - he's a journalist so he's good at taking something that could come off scholarly and boring and making it interesting to read.

This is a good small book not different from his earlier in-depth book 'The case for the Real Jesus'. Even then it is a good book to read and really helps anyone interested in knowing the Facts regarding the Bible and the Historical Jesus.

Explains clearly why the modern thinking is wrong including details on the Gnostics, so called errors in the bible and the idea that He failed in His mission

Short and fact-packed! Great for those who aren't big readers and would otherwise be intimidated by a thicker book. Around 100 pages. It's all there, people. Just read the wee book!
