This week on Sharin’ Hearts: The Fireside Bookshelf, Ginger Green takes a look at The Case for Easter by Lee Strobel.
Of the many world religions, only one claims that its founder returned from the grave. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the very cornerstone of Christianity.
But a dead man coming back to life? In our sophisticated age, when myth has given way to science, who can take such a claim seriously? Some argue that Jesus never died on the cross. Conflicting accounts make the empty tomb seem suspect.
How credible is the evidence for the resurrection? Focusing his award-winning skills as a legal journalist on history’s most compelling enigma, Lee Strobel retraces the startling findings that led him from atheism to belief.
Come be a part as Strobel examines:
· The medical evidence – was Jesus’s death a sham, and his resurrection a hoax?
· The evidence of the missing body – was Jesus’s body really absent from his tomb?
· The evidence of appearances – was Jesus really seen alive after his death on the cross?
Written in a hard-hitting journalistic style, The Case for Easter: A Journalist Investigates the Evidence for the Resurrection probes the core issues of the resurrection.
