Publisher's Summary

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. Strobel asks the tough, pointed questions you'd expect from an award-winning legal journalist sifting through the 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? Somewhere beyond the traditions of the Christmas holiday lies the truth. It may be more compelling than you've realized. Weigh the facts...and decide for yourself.

Nothing really new

Lee pulled notes from the Case for Christ and added some additional notes... No actual new information... I was disappointed...

Short and very sweet!

Loved this concise and compelling account of Strobel’s search for the truth about Jesus’ identity. A must-read for those searching for and those who have found Jesus!

A great read for Christmas

This is basically an abridged version of Lee Strobel's book, The Case For Christ that focuses on on the evidences for the Biblical narrative about the birth of Jesus. Lee Strobel is always an interesting read and he does a great job narrating as well.

Great book to refocus attention on Christ during the holiday season.

Great book to refocus attention on Christ during the holiday season. It is, however, a shortened version of
the author’s “Case for Christ.”
