Who Was Jesus? A good man? A lunatic? God? There's little question that he actually lived. But miracles? Rising from the dead? Some of the stories you hear about him sound like just that--stories. A reasonable person would never believe them, let alone the claim that he's the only way to God! But a reasonable person would also make sure that he or she understood the facts before jumping to conclusions. That's why Lee Strobel--an award-winning legal journalist with a knack for asking tough questions--decided to investigate Jesus for himself. An atheist, Strobel felt certain his findings would bring Christianity's claims about Jesus tumbling down like a house of cards. He was in for the surprise of his life. Join him as he retraces his journey from skepticism to faith. You'll consult expert testimony as you sift through the truths that history, science, psychiatry, literature, and religion reveal. Like Strobel, you'll be amazed at the evidence--how much there is, how strong it is, and what it says. The facts are in. What will your verdict be in The Case for Christ?

Have Western exegetes turned an Eastern book into a Western one? Has our fondness for a fixed printed text capable of being analyzed with precision and exactitude blinded us to other hermeneutic possibilities? Does God require all people to be able to analyze grammar to interpret Scripture? Does God assume all people can interpret Scripture through oral means? The authors recognize the effects of centuries of literacy socialization that produced a blind spot in the Western Christian world--the neglect by most in the academies, agencies, and assemblies of the foundational and forceful role orality had on the biblical text and teaching. From the inspired spoken word of the prophets, including Jesus (pre-text), to the elite literate scribes who painstakingly hand-printed the sacred text, to post-text interpretation and teaching, the footprint of orality throughout the entire process is acutely visible to those having the oral-aural influenced eyes of the Mediterranean ancients. Could oral hermeneutics be the "mother of relational theology"?

Has modern scholarship debunked the traditional Christ? Has the church suppressed the truth about Jesus to advance its own agenda? What if the real Jesus is far different from the atoning Savior worshipped through the centuries? In The Case for the Real Jesus, former award-winning legal editor Lee Strobel explores such hot-button questions as: • Did the church suppress ancient non-biblical documents that paint a more accurate picture of Jesus than the four Gospels? • Did the church distort the truth about Jesus by tampering with early New Testament texts? • Do new insights and explanations finally disprove the resurrection? • Have fresh arguments disqualified Jesus from being the Messiah? • Did Christianity steal its core ideas from earlier mythology? Evaluate the arguments and evidence being advanced by prominent atheists, liberal theologians, Muslim scholars, and others. Sift through expert testimony. Then reach your own verdict in The Case for the Real Jesus.
The Answer Book: A Devotional for Busy Families recognizes that today’s families keep hectic schedules, often leaving mere scraps of time for asking and answering spiritual questions. Nancy Ruth brings years of experience in children’s ministry and a master’s degree in theology to bear in crafting a seven-week set of daily devotions that offers families assistance in exploring how to live as Christians. Adults, who sometimes find children challenging them with hard questions about the Christian life, will find The Answer Book enables them to ask those questions as a family, to listen to God’s Word, and to discover its answers. Each weekly section addresses a major topic, including truth, the reasons for spending time with God, the identity of Jesus, and family discipleship. Each daily devotion shares a brief reflection, suggests a Bible reading, presents an “On the Road” challenge to the family, and calls for a “Weapon Check,” in which one memorizes key scriptural passages. As you spend time around your children, you may wonder what drives them to ask endlessly, “Why?” The Answer Book: A Devotional for Busy Families gives you a structured—yet flexible—way to turn small blocks of time into moments for taking seriously their deep and heartfelt questions. By spending some time together as a family with these questions and with the message God reveals in the Scriptures, you will grow together to trust God more fully, to build your lives on a strong foundation, and to be prepared for life’s coming challenges.
