"From that time Jesus began to show to His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised the third day." -- Matthew 16:21 (NKJV)

"Paul, a bondservant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God's elect and the acknowledgment of the truth which accords with godliness, in hope of eternal life which God, who cannot lie, promised before time began, but has in due time manifested His word through preaching, which was committed to me according to the commandment of God our Savior;" -- Titus 1:1-3 (NKJV)

Before addressing this book directly, let me comment that it is primarily made up of three excerpts from Lee Strobel's longer book, The Case for Christ.

Many born-again Christians are reluctant to discuss their faith with skeptics, despite the Great Commission, and encouragement not to be ashamed of Jesus before men. This book will be a blessing for such uncomfortable believers.

Let me explain. If Jesus really died, was raised from the dead on the third day, met with hundreds of people for weeks thereafter, and was observed to ascend into heaven, that's pretty remarkable evidence for believing in Him as the Son of God, and the source of Salvation. This little book focuses in that area.

If you have met more than a few skeptics, they will almost always claim that the disciples stole His body or that no one ever saw Him alive again. This book contains much valuable information to the contrary.

Here are the key questions raised in the book and the authorities who addressed them:

1. "Was Jesus' death a sham and His resurrection a hoax?" (Dr. Alexander Metherell)

The credibility of the death and resurection of JESUS CHRIST has never before been explained with such convincing evidences as done by Strobels findings. It is a book that should be read by all.

This was an interesting read. Lee was a journalist for the Chicago Tribune with journalism and law degrees. He was an atheist. His wife converted to Christianity ... and he decided to investigate Christianity in the same way that he would any other journalistic piece of work. He spoke to leading experts in various fields about crucifixion and resurrection. The purpose of the research was to debunk his wife's new belief system. The proof that he was presented with convinced him of the reality of Jesus and he became a Christian himself.

I am already a Christian myself so the book only verified some of the things that I already knew. I did like Lee Strobel's way of methodically looking at each aspect of the core basis of the Christian faith ... the book isn't fussy or bogged down in unnecessary long explanations. Instead the language is simple and to the point. He took his questions to the experts and let them explain their beliefs and evidence. The evidence, in my opinion, is irrefutable but as I have already stated, I am already a Christian.

A lot of the information presented in the book I already knew. However, some of the medical aspects were new to me and I found it interesting (if somewhat distressing in places). The medical side of the crucifixion was examined and discussed. A very detailed description of each stage of the process proves that it could not have been survived and the talk of Jesus actually swooning on the cross and being taken down (believed dead) is debunked. Valid points are made about society at that time, about women and class.

One point that I thought was well made was that of the Disciples after Jesus had left them. They spent the rest of their lives proclaiming that the man that they knew was the Son of God.

A cut down version of "Who Moved The Stone" written in a very similar style, with modern analogies to aid understanding.

This book - a distillation from the author's longer The Case for Christ - looks at Jesus's execution, entombment and resurrection, assessing the evidence of modern medical science and the New Testament, combined with logic, reason and historical methodology. The evidence of the Gospels and the Acts of the Apostles, while contradictory in some respects, is near contemporary and provides more thorough evidence than exists for many other ancient historical events, the essential truth of which are undisputed. Whatever one's views on religion, it is clear that the apostles and many other contemporaries deeply involved in the events of the time sincerely believed that Jesus had died, that he had been resurrected, that they themselves had seen him resurrected, and were therefore prepared to devote their lives to establishing the Christian church. The author and his interviewees find this a convincing line of reasoning and, to be sure, there is much to be said for it, though they are sometimes selective in which sources they choose to emphasise in making a particular point. Ultimately, though, they concede that one faces a choice between accepting this powerful line of argument or accepting the sceptics' notion that it is a fantasy to believe that a man could really rise from the dead. Anyway, interesting food for thought.
