Superbly done
Strobel's narration of his own book makes this a delight to listen to while driving. It is like having a conversation with someone during which you learn a lot.

Excellent
This is a subject I knew little about. Strobel interviews solid scholars in such a way that it is interesting throughout. A plus is that this is read by Strobel himself.

The Myth of Pre-Biblical Myths
Lee Strobel has attempted in this book, to prove yet another case. In our modern world the common man believes, as a French exchange student once informed me, that science has shown us that there is no need for a God much less a savior because nature has created everything.

In defense of this common belief, many scholars have sought to prove that the Bible as we know it is a book of fables copied from other historical myths into an inconsistent, incomplete group of humanly devised books which only the most insecure people need bother with.

In this day of instant, around-the-world communication, what is proposed by one, is shared hundreds or thousands of times until many take the proposition to be factual.

Whenever I discuss such matters, I always insist on the author to produce “primary” sources. Unfortunately, that is too much work for most and too revealing of inaccuracy to others.

In this book, Strobel presents a very painstakingly analysis of the fact and fiction regarding the authenticity of the Holy Bible. He quotes source after source going back to ancient primary sources time after time to prove that the Bible is the most historically proven book of all time.

Strobel often takes the oppositional position when questioning Biblical scholars, challenging their ideas until the false arguments are completely disproven. One example which was new to me was the idea that other religious myths predate Christianity and the Bible “borrows” from those myths. Strobel demonstrates that there are only three instances that predate Jesus and those do not come close to being a parallel of Jesus birth, death as a sacrifice for our sins.

It is obvious that essentially all of the antagonists of Christianity would do well to actually perform scholarly research rather than repeat what they have read on anti-Christian blogs.

The narrator did a very good job of keeping the listener engaged although as with many books, I would have preferred that the author narrate the book himself.

I was given a free audio version of this book for my agreement to review it but this has not influenced my personal impressions of the book.
