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.

By focusing on the “hows” and whys” of Christmas, this warm yet journalistic book will help believers reaffirm their faith while guiding seekers as they pursue solid answers about this miraculous occurrence. With material from The Case for Christ as well as new ideas from author Lee Strobel, this book is designed to be an tool to give away to family, friends, neighbors, and others who want to understand what happened at Christmas 2,000 years ago.

& Taylor

Explores the credibility and accuracy of Jesus' biographies, whether archaeology disproves or confirms the biblical records, whether Jesus is divine, and whether Jesus fulfilled the messianic prophecy.

Thanks to the person/s who decided to include this resource in the KCLS collection. The tolerance and inclusiveness of Christianity resources is great. I hope many lives will improve greatly by reading this and other resources from Lee Strobel, and others like Erwin Lutzer and D. James Kennedy. Happy Holidays!! And Merry Christmas!!
