Is there credible evidence that Jesus of Nazareth really is the Son of God
Retracing his own spiritual journey from atheism to faith, Lee Strobel, former legal editor of the Chicago Tribune, cross-examines a dozen experts with doctorates from schools like Cambridge, Princeton, and Brandeis who are recognized authorities in their own fields.
Strobel challenges them with questions like, How reliable is the New Testament Does evidence for Jesus exist outside the Bible Is there any reason to believe the resurrection was an actual event
Winner of the Gold Medallion Book Award and twice nominated for the Christian Book of the Year Award, Strobel's tough, point-blank questions read like a captivating, fast-paced novel. But it's not fiction. It's a riveting quest for the truth about history's most compelling figure.
The new edition includes scores of revisions and additions, including updated material on archaeological and manuscript discoveries, fresh recommendations for further study, and an interview with the author that tells dramatic stories about the book's impact, provides behind-the-scenes information, and responds to critiques of the book by skeptics. As The Case for Christ and its ancillary resources approach 10 million copies in print, this updated edition will prove even more valuable to contemporary readers.
This is a true story about how the LORD Jesus Christ began to work in my life, how He came to justify the ungodly, save sinners and call them to repentance (with prophecy, visions, and miracles.). This book was not written by a "professional" Author, and contains some grammatical errors. This is a very light read.
Upon becoming a christian, a person's attitude and behaviour does not automatically change to the standard prescribed by Jesus Christ. While the Holy Spirit will come to dwell in a young believer, the extent to which He will control and direct the young believer's character will depend on the extent to which he/she surrenders his/her life. The Holy Spirit never forces a person to do or not to do an act; He advises. The more a person is able to take the quiet advices of the Holy Spirit, the more he/she grows in his christian behaviour. "Becoming a better Christain," written under the direction of the Holy Spirit, is aimed at guiding a christian on what to do and what not to do so that his/her character can tend, on daily basis, towards that of Jesus Christ, our perfect example. The book is rich in Bible references so that the reader is not only sure that the contents are in accordance with the Holy Bible, he/she also becomes more knowledgeable in the word of God.
Discipleship means being like the Big Twelve disciples, right? But when you read the Gospels and Acts, it's clear the disciples weren't always on top of things. In fact, the disciples were clueless, selfish, erratic, inconsistent, and faithless at least half the time. But Jesus loved them and used them all the more for it. Author Mike Yaconelli scrubs away centuries of sentimental buildup and shows there's hope for us too. In this updated thirty-day devotional, you'll experience thirty character traits that are marks of a disciple, from boldness to weakness to preparedness. Each reading includes an event from Scripture, a description of that day's trait, first-person commentary, the obvious and not-so-obvious truth lesson, and questions and journaling space that invite you to ponder and write about your experience.
