Review: The Case for Christmas by:Lee Strobel

 ISBN: 9780310337669
About the Book:
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.

My Review:
 True to journalist form Lee Strobel , takes apart and investigates the true identity of the Christ child. He consults many so called authorities on the subject. In the somewhat short findings that this book finds in just under 100 pages, Lee Strobel does in fact believe that there was a Christ child and that He come to save us all. Many people get away from the real reason that there is a Christmas in the first place and it is really disheartening to know that Jesus was sent for all mankind, yet all mankind doesn't believe.

 The author manages to find lots of opinions on the subject and is able to provide proper consensus on order for some to make a knowledgeable decision. As we move on from Thanksgiving on to the day we celebrate the birth of our Saviour it is my sincere hope, that all of us stop to consider the price that was paid for us. Christmas is a time for love and time with our families that is definitely meant for enjoyment and reflection. If you are interested in learning more about this book, you can here.
