From the Back Cover
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 than you've realized. Weigh the facts . . . and decide for yourself. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

A wonderfully affirming read. Thanks, Lee.
The book is well written, is interesting and very helpful for anyone seeking to understand or defend the existence, identity and mission of Jesus Christ.
Lee strobel is a fantastic and very well informed author, who goes to interview the experts on the subject. This book gives evidence to his reading of critics of Christian faith and he puts these people's critiques to the experts. So its useful for reading about the evidence but also for helping respond to certain criticisms
