Have you ever heard Scripture's truths but wondered where to find those truths in the Scriptures? You're not alone. Millions of people have asked these same questions, including Lee Strobel - an atheist who engaged in a thorough search for the truth to decide for himself if Jesus was who he claimed to be. Drawn from Lee's own experiences as a former atheist and featuring his journalistic style from his days as an investigative reporter with the Chicago Tribune, the notes and articles throughout The Case for Christ Study Bible are designed to motivate you to investigate the Bible's claims for yourself. Whether you are a Christian seeking encouragement in your faith and knowledge about who God is or a seeker or skeptic searching for answers, you will benefit from Lee's own extensive search for the truth. Some of the excellent study notes found in this Bible include:
The Case for Christ Articles:
Over 220 The Case for Christ notes explore Jesus' claims and deity and demonstrate that he is the Messiah.
The Case for the Bible Notes:
More than 170 The Case for the Bible notes explore the character of the Bible and the extra-biblical evidence that corroborates Scripture, and explain apparent contradictions within the Bible.
The Case for a Creator Notes:
Seventy-five The Case for a Creator notes highlight the wonders of creation and demonstrate how the scientific evidence points to one all-powerful Creator.
The Case for Faith Articles:
One hundred The Case for Faith articles address questions such as, "How can there be a God that would allow so much pain and suffering?" and, "Doesn't science prove that the world was created by chance?"
The Verdict Notes:
Twenty The Verdict notes provide testimonies from scholars and other Christians who have examined the evidence, discovered the reality of Jesus, and put their faith in him.
Sixty-six Book Introductions offer a short overview of each book.
Drawn from Lee Strobel's own experiences as a former atheist engaged in a thorough search for truth, the articles and notes throughout The Case for Christ Study Bible provide a solid explanation of where the historical and scientific evidence point---toward the existence of a compassionate Creator God and his Son, Jesus, the Savior. The Case for Christ Study Bible features more than 500 notes and articles, including: * The Case for a Creator: highlighting the wonders of creation and demonstrating how the scientific evidence supports belief in an all-powerful Creator. * The Case for the Bible: exploring the character of the Bible, the extra-biblical evidence that corroborates scripture, and apparent contradictions. * The Case for Christ: investigating Jesus' claims, Messianic identity, deity, and resurrection. * And much more. The Good News of the Gospel transformed the life of this former atheist. It can do the same for others who commit to examining the evidence for themselves.
