Editorial Reviews

Review

'Strobel's appraoch is hard-hitting, clear, and persuasive.' (Christian Research Journal)

'Despite the rather heavy matters discussed, this book is easy to read. The analogies and anecdotes are very helpful in explaining a deep subject on an understandable level.' (The Conservative Theological Journal)

'...the book incorporates Strobel's journalistic skills to tackle several of the most persistent objections to belief in Christ....'The Case for Faith' is for readers who may be attracted to Jesus, but still have formidable intellectual barriers with emotional undertow inhibiting them from fully committing their lives to Christ....As one who was a spiritual skeptic for many years, Strobel relates well to those who object to the faith on emotional and intellectual grounds....' (Christian Retailing)

'When Strobel interviews his subjects, he approaches the questions just as a non-believer would, and he's not afraid to press until he gets a satisfactory answer....'The Case for Faith' will provide the tools you need to remove...obstacles from a non-believers path to faith in Christ.' (Singing News)

'Lee Strobel takes a hard look at the toughest objections to Christianity....The result is an intellectual and captivating book that will change the way many think about God.' (Christian Herald)

'[This] is for anyone who is looking for satisfying and life-changing answers.' (Giftware News)

'It will help you understand how God can meet our needs even in the midst of great suffering.' (Home Times)

'Strobel...confronts in head-on fashion some of the thorniest issues that prove a hinderance to people coming to faith in this thought-provoking volume.' (Capital Journal) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

A student edition of Lee Strobel’s prize-winning The Case for Faith, created by the same writers, Strobel and Jane Vogel, who produced the popular The Case for Christ--Student Edition.

Format: Paperback
The Student Edition of The Case for Faith is not a dumbed-down version of the adult book by former investigative journalist Lee Strobel. Rather, this book explores the same issues that are so well dissected in the adult book and yet examines them from the perspective of a young person. It covers topics that are thoroughly relevant to all students: How can there be a loving God with so much evil in the world? How can we believe in miracles when they contradict modern science? How can we believe in a divine Creator in light of evolutionary theory? How can anyone believe Jesus is the only route to God? How can a loving God send people to hell? And how much doubts can a person have and still be a Christian? The book uses timely illustrations and examples and goes beyond sound bite answers. I enthusiastically recommend this book to young people and to youth pastors who are seeking to help students come to grips with these faith-testing issues.

Lee Strobel has written several good books that could be especially valuable to someone new in the Christian faith. This is a revised version of his book The Case for Faith, which goes quite nicely with his first book, The Case for Christ. In this edition of The Case for Faith, Strobel--who is a former skeptic--continues where he left off with The Case for Christ. He interviews scholars all over the country, picking their brains for answers to some of the toughest questions out there, including evil, miracles, and "oppressive" church history. I thought the novelistic style helped make the book a quick read. Teens who want to understand their Christian faith will be helped by reading this book. While it will not solve all of their dilemmas or give answers to each and every question, the information provided by Strobel will certainly help. Overall I recommend The Case for Faith for its apologetic value.

Format: Paperback
This is a concise book that can be read in less than an hour, but still packs many, many answers to reasons you may have against becoming a Christian. Already being Christian, there were two or so ideas in this book that I felt Strobel did not spend enough time on, but this book is really - in my opinion - meant to spur you on to other works that go into much more detail about certain faith topics. In all, a great book!

This book was instrumental in my wife's coming to know Jesus. It is the manual for dealing with tough questions and Strobel's style is very easy to read.

This is an excellent book and owning it on CD means I can listen to it while I'm running around in the car. There is so much information in this book that I find I need the repetition to absorb it. I don't mind listening to it several times. It's also an easy way to share it with family and friends.

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.Read more ›

Format: Kindle Edition
The slim paperback was easy to read which would be good for teens. The book presents natural and typical questions that teens (and maybe even pre-teens) might ask such as, "Can I believe the Bible?" Strobel shares interviews and personal experiences as the backdrop to the book. The Case For Faith is very scientific. It doesn't shy away from controversial topics like Darwinism or the Big Bang Theory. That's refreshing in a Christian book! The best part of The Case For Faith was the Q&A section. If I were a kid picking up this book, this is probably the only section I would read. The book ends in an abrupt way; I flipped a few pages past just to make sure I had finished it. Although it's not a book I'd hand to my teen, it's definitely a book I'd use to prepare myself for the tough conversations my teen might want to have. I received this book to review. The opinions shared here are 100% mine.
