Is Faith Possible in Today's World? It's not easy to believe in Christianity when there is pain all around you and issues that defy easy explanation. Unless there are answers to the questions you face. Lee Strobel knows how important it is to find answers that ring true. With his background as an award-winning journalist, asking tough questions has been his business. And while his search for the truth convinced Lee that Jesus is real, it also confronted him with some particularly knotty, gut-level questions about Christianity you've likely asked as well: Why is there suffering? Doesn't science disprove miracles? What about hell---and the millions who've never heard of Jesus? Is God unjust? They're the kinds of conundrums that can block---and have blocked---people's faith. But those questions don't have to block yours. Join Lee in a fascinating journey of discovery. You'll gain powerful insights that will reshape your understanding of the Bible. And you'll read true stories about people whose experiences demonstrate that faith in Jesus not only makes excellent sense, it makes a life-changing difference as well.
A few months ago, my dad handed me a copy of The Case for a Creator By Lee Strobel and insisted that I read it. Well, I did, and let me tell you, it completely changed my perspective. All the answers to how religion and science can mix in one book. So when the opportunity to review The Case for Faith presented itself, I jumped on it. This author isn't afraid to ask the hard questions, and he certainly isn't afraid to travel the country in search of answers to those questions. He is constantly questioning what other people tell him. He refuses to accept someone else's ideology, and instead goes to great pains to form his own opinions based on proven facts. The thing that I liked about getting the student edition of The Case for Faith was that it just got to the point. It's short, but contains enough information for a young person to easily process. The last book of Lee's that I read took me a while to read. Not because it wasn't fantastic (because it was), but because it was so detailed and intricate. Which is good, but I would have to take breaks to process everything. If you have any huge doubts about the topic of one of his books, then I encourage you to read the original version. If you are looking for something that won't take as long to read, but is still jam-packed with encouragement and God based facts, then the student edition is for you. I personally liked them both and would love to start collecting all of his books for my private collection. The way he starts at the base of a problem/question and works his way up, without skipping over anything, leaves me surer than ever that my God is real, present, and the Creator of everything. If you are a very analytical person, than I think you especially would enjoy Lee Strobel's work.
