The strong public response to The Case for Christ--which hit #1 on the best-seller list and sold more than 600,000 copies in its first 18 months--precipitated an avalanche of requests for a version of the book for teenagers. Many parents who were radically impacted by Lee Strobel's spiritual journey from atheism to Christianity wanted a student-friendly edition to help their teenagers find Christ or deepen their faith. The Case for Christ--Student Edition is the response to this need: a highly readable, thoroughly engaging, and spiritually challenging version designed both for teenagers who are Christians and those seeking the truth about Jesus. This is not a watered-down version of the original book, but an entirely fresh approach to the same subject matter--with brand new material. Strobel partnered with Jane Vogel, a writer highly regarded for her ability to communicate with students, to customize the content of his book for a post-modern mindset. They've redefined courage in evangelism and moved it away from confronting someone about your faith to letting someone get close enough to you to see why you need Jesus' salvation. This creative and fast-paced book follows Strobel, an investigative reporter, on email interviews as he unearths convincing evidence that faith in Jesus Christ of Nazareth is not based on wishful thinking or fabricated legends, but on solid historical facts.
