A journalist investigates the most recent attacks against the identity of Christ. The figure of Jesus has become the target of an intellectual war, and receives continuous attacks from different flanks: classrooms in universities, bestsellers, and the internet. These violent attacks against the traditional image of Christ have confused many people with spiritual inquiries and have sown doubt among many Christians. But, what happens if we submit all these radical affirmations and revisionist theories to a detailed test? In The Case For the Real Jesus, awarded legal editor Strobel asks polemic questions like: Did the church hide ancient extra-biblical documents that offered a more approximate picture of Jesus than the four gospels? Did the church distort the truth about Jesus, manipulating the ancient texts of the New Testament? Is it true that new discoveries and explanations discredit the resurrection? Are the new arguments that say that Jesus is not the Messiah true? Has Christianity acquired its basic ideas from mythology? It evaluates the arguments and evidence that prominent atheists, liberal theologians, Muslim academics and others have presented. He examines them carefully, and then renders his own verdict on The Case for the Real Jesus.
Atheist-turned-Christian, Lee Strobel is the former award-winning legal affairs editor of The Chicago Tribune. He holds a Master of Studies in Law degree, as well as a journalism degree and was a professional journalist for 14 years, winning Illinois' top honours for investigative reporting and public service journalism from United Press International.
In 1981, after a two-year investigation of the evidence for Jesus, Lee received Christ as his Saviour, and subsequently became a teaching pastor at two of America's largest churches - Willow Creek Community Church, Chicago in 1987 and Saddleback Valley Community Church, California in 2000. In 2002 he left Saddleback's staff to focus on writing.
A New York Times best-selling author of nearly 20 books, he has been described by the Washington Post as "one of the evangelical community's most popular apologists." His journey from atheism to faith has been documented in the Gold Medallion-winning books The Case for Christ, Inside the Mind of Unchurched Harry and Mary and The Case for Faith.
His other best-sellers include Surviving a Spiritual Mismatch in Marriage, which he co-authored with his wife, Leslie; God's Outrageous Claims and What Jesus Would Say? Lee also shared the prestigious ECPA Jordon Christian Book of the Year award in 2005 for a curriculum he co-authored about the movie The Passion of the Christ.
Lee is also co-author of the Becoming a Contagious Christian training curriculum, which is used around the world. And his articles have been published in a variety of magazines, including Discipleship Journal, Marriage Partnership, The Christian Research Journal, Guideposts, and Decision. He is also a contributing editor and columnist for Outreach on-line magazine.
Lee and Leslie have been married for 33 years and live in Southern California. They have a daughter, Alison, and son Kyle who is married to Kellie, both Alison and Kyle are writers.
