How can anyone have confidence in the Bible's New Testament when it's based on copies of copies of copies? Former legal journalist Lee Strobel shared this common concern when he was an atheist investigating the Bible and hoping that the evidence for the veracity of the Bible would not add up.
During a recent interview with The Christian Post, Christian apologist Lee Strobel shared that he had been an atheist since his teens, and after he married his wife, Leslie, her subsequent conversion to Christianity prompted him to verify claims in the Bible, as well as the authenticity of the ancient copies from which it came. So he consulted a leading theologian to learn about the empirical evidence used to authenticate ancient replicas of the New Testament.
The result is his newly revised book, The Case for Christ, in which Strobel questions New Testament expert Dr. Bruce Metzger about the authenticity of the Gospels. more >>

At the Catalyst conference in Atlanta on Wednesday, Fuller Youth Institute Executive Director Kara Powell sat down with The Christian Post to discuss Growing Young: 6 Essential Strategies to Help Young People Discover and Love Your Church, a book she co-authored with Jake Mulder and Brad Griffin. While some of the statistics are troubling, there is much more to the story.
