In this follow-up to "The Case for Christ, " Strobel confronts some of the most difficult objections to belief, drawing on questions he had when he was a skeptic, on the objections currently being risen by opponents of Christianity, and on the troublesome barriers to faith in the hearts and minds of seekers and skeptics.
Written by best-selling author, Lee Strobel, author of The Case for Christ. This book presents a journalist's investigation about the toughest objections to Christianity.
In "The Case for Faith," Strobel turns his tenacious investigative skills to the most persistent emotional objections to belief--the eight "heart" barriers to faith. "The Case for Faith" is for those who may be feeling attracted to Jesus but who are faced with formidable intellectual barriers standing squarely in their path. For Christians, it will deepen their convictions and give them fresh confidence in discussing Christianity with even their most skeptical friends. In "The Case for Faith," Lee Strobel probes the most thorny of all questions, what he calls "The Big Eight," including:
If there is a loving God, why does this world groan under so much suffering and evil?
If God really created the universe, why does science compel so many to conclude that evolution accounts for life?
If God is the ultimate overseer of the church, why has it been riffled with hypocrisy and brutality through the ages?
If God truly cares about the people He created, how could He consign so many of them to an eternity of torture in hell just because they didn't believe the right things about Him?
As a seasoned journalist with Yale Law background, Strobel methodically tracks down his leads and asks the gritty, gut-wrenching questions you would want to ask-- questions that can make or break the Christian faith. He refuses to patronize or offer cliche, glib answers. Instead, he pieces together hard facts through interviews with nine of the country's top scholars and experts. The result? Solid, persuasive, engrossing, and smart answers to your deepest questions. "The Case for Faith" will set you on the path to belief, renewed, restored--or discovered for the very first time.
