Description

Who was in the manger that first Christmas morning?

Some say he would become a great moral leader. Others, a social critic. Still others view Jesus as a profound philosopher, a rabbi, a feminist, a prophet, and more. Many are convinced he was the divine Son of God.

Who was he - really? And how can you know for sure?

Consulting experts on the Bible, archaeology, and messianic prophecy, Lee Strobel searches out the true identity of the child in the manger. Join him as he asks the tough, pointed questions you'd expect from an award-winning legal journalist. If Jesus really was God in the flesh, then there ought to be credible evidence, including

Eyewitness Evidence - Can the biographies of Jesus be trusted?
Scientific Evidence - What does archaeology reveal?
Profile Evidence - Did Jesus fulfill the attributes of God?
Fingerprint Evidence - Did Jesus uniquely match the identity of the Messiah?

The Case for Christmas invites you to consider why Christmas matters in the first place. Somewhere beyond the traditions of the holiday lies the truth. It may be more compelling that you've realised. Weigh the facts ... and decide for yourself.

“Great book for those dealing with questions about the who Jesus is”

This is a short book of only four chapters long that we gave away to the parents at our parent and toddler group last Christmas. The author is a legal journalist and this comes through in the writing. It vaguely resembles the old Philip Marlowe style private eye films the way he documents his journey to faith in Christ which serves to make it a very readable book.

The big question he seeks to answer is the question of who the child in the manger was. He goes about doing this by interviewing a series of experts in different fields to answer his questions. It’s like they are a series of witnesses taking the stand to give their expert testimony. I particularly found the penultimate chapter quite powerful where Louis S. Lapides shares his own personal journey from his Jewish background to faith in Jesus as the Jewish Messiah.

It comes as no shock the author shares that his investigation led him to become convinced and accepted Jesus as God incarnate and became a Christian.

All in all, this is an immensely readable book that I’d recommend for anyone. It would be especially useful for those who are wondering about the veracity of the real Christmas story and what it means.
