The Case for Christ by Lee StrobelIf my conclusion in the case for Christ is correct, your future and eternity hinge on how you respond to Christ. As Jesus declared, ‘If you do not believe that I am the one I claim to be, you will indeed die in your sins’ (John 8:24). Those are sober words…I cite them to underline the magnitude of this matter and in the hope that they will spur you to actively and thoroughly examine the case for Christ.
Earlier this year, a reader responded to my review of Stop Asking Jesus into Your Heart by making a comment that began a dialogue between him, me and a couple of others. He explained that he had once been a Christian who loved Jesus and the Bible. But after being challenged to examine his beliefs, he discovered his faith was unfounded. He said,
I slowly came to realize that there is zero verifiable evidence for the Resurrection, and the Bible is not a reliable document. After four months of desperate attempts to save my faith, I came to the sad conclusion that my faith was based on an ancient superstition; a superstition not based on lies, but based on the sincere but false beliefs of uneducated, superstitious, first century peasants.
