In the typical Lee Strobel fashion, the author identifies six questions skeptics ask and interviews experts who give supporting data to back up the answers. The questions in this book, however, aren't the standard ones Strobel investigates. In The Case for the Real Jesus, Strobel digs deep and asks the scholarly queries that can't be answered by your fifth grade Sunday school teacher. Strobel investigates matters such as, the Gnostic gospels, mys ...more
