  • The biggest failure, in my opinion, is his lack of interviews with experts on the other side of the table

    • by Walter Stevens

      Lee Strobel has become a fairly popular author among Christians, based primarily upon this book, an account of his investigations into the story of Jesus and the Bible. The idea is he is a journalist investigating the evidence for Christ.

      For someone unfamiliar with Christian apologetics or scholarship around the Bible and Jesus, this book might make a somewhat


      convincing case.

      However, for anyone with a little bit of knowledge on the subject, one can see that Strobel fails to make a convincing case, or argue against some of the larger problems of the Bible.

      The biggest failure, in my opinion, is his lack of interviews with experts on the other side of the table.

      He ...


      • only talks to Christian scholars, and ignores non-Christian scholars, I would assume believing that he himself would be the skeptics’ spokesperson.

        Unfortunately, Mr.

        Strobel is no scholar, and proves himself completely incapable of discussing the problems of the Bible when confronted by Biblical scholars.

        He asked hardly any of the questions I would have asked in the same

        position, and glosses over way too much.

        In the end his case fails even in what the book is trying to show (That the Bible is accurate in its historical telling of Jesus), and doesn’t even bother to show how historical accuracy of the Bible would prove Christianity.

        All in all a pretty poor book, unconvincing to anyone remotely knowledgable of the subject.
