Editorial Reviews

In THE CASE FOR FAITH journalist Lee Strobel investigates two of the most emotional objections to Christianity. Barriers to faith confronted by believers and skeptics alike: Why is Jesus the only way to God? And, how could a loving God exist if there is evil and suffering in the world?

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional October 1, 2008
Format:DVD
In a world gone mad with spin, slant, subterfuge, and political correctness of all kinds in all fields, THE CASE FOR FAITH, breaks all molds, taking on Christianity's biggest questions and thorniest challenges with fearless
honesty and sublime humility. It is, I believe, the most honest, most courageous Christian film ever made, bracing in its aspiration and moving in its conclusions. Lee Strobel is obviously a thinker, but he is foremost a seeker of truth, and in this film Lee Strobel, while obviously a proponent of "faith in Christ," dodges nothing. This DVD stirs the mind and touches the heart. If you are not satisfied with cheap answers, superficial dogma, and peripheral paradigms of faith, if you want to get right at the heart of the faith journey, even to places where knotty questions vex and suffering swells, this film takes you there. This film drives straight into the Faith's darkest tunnels and leads the traveler to the other side, bathed in new light and new hope.

THE CASE FOR FAITH
4 Stars - Uplifting

The visual presentation of Lee Strobel's book "The Case For Faith" is compelling. As a follow-up volume from his first book, The Case For Christ, the award-winning journalist applies his investigative skills once again to the questions of Christian beliefs by taking on the doubts that inevitably plague the thoughtful believer.

Using the loss of faith of Charles Templeton as a model for the way doubt can capture the mind, Strobel questions this personal friend and contemporary of Billy Graham. Noting that he was one of the greatest evangelists during the 1940's, Templeton explains in his own words the two doubts that cost him his faith. The first is what he calls "the insufferable claim that Jesus is the only true way to God" and the second is the problem of believing in a good God when the world is full of suffering.

Further researching the question of what are the most common doubts that disturb Christians, Strobel finds that these issues are not unique to Templeton. Both are common not only to current Christians but are also found in the writings of major theologians of the past, including St. Augustine who lived in the 4th century. Quoting Augustine, he expresses the second doubt in this way: "If there is no God, why is there so much good? If there is a God, why is there so much evil?"

In presenting the best answers to the "problem of evil" and the universal experience of suffering, Strobel takes us to conversations with leading theologians alive today as well as to some of the best Christian writers, such as C.S. Lewis. The list of scholars includes N.T. Wright, Bishop of Durham, England, Craig Hazen of Biola University, Gregory Koul, author of Stand to Reason, J.P.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must See for believers and unbelievers alike October 18, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD was the best of Lee Strobel's cinematic efforts to date. It covers the difficult-to-articulate subject of FAITH. For those of us who are believer's, we know faith is a gift from God, and cannot be obtained through works, through mere intellectual pursuit, through studying philosophy or science. The makers of this film pace the viewer through well-reasoned and well-articulated explanations about Christian faith, how Christian faith is based on the person, Jesus Christ, and not a philosophy of living. The believer's hope is therefore rooted in a historical person, who suffered as we do, and is the only one qualified to rescue us from a world bent on self-destructive rebellion against the purposes of God.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Answers to the Toughest Questions October 4, 2008
Format:DVD
Don't even think about buying another book or DVD until you get your hands on "The Case for Faith." It is the best investment you could possibly make.

The Association of Christian Faculty at the University of California at Santa Barbara will be using all three of Lee Strobel's DVDs this year to lead discussions in lecture halls, dorms, and departmental conference rooms in making the case for the Creator, the case for faith, and the case for Christ. The DVDs are that good. They will inspire Christians and give them solid reasons for their faith. They will also give skeptics good reasons to be skeptical of their skepticism.

"Case for Faith" is phenomenal. Now stop reading and go buy it.

3.0 out of 5 stars More misses than hits December 5, 2009
Format:DVD
I give this DVD high marks for effort, but low marks for Biblical accuracy. As a student of the Bible, I found that many of the 'experts' interviewed were more interested in "popular Christian" views than "Biblically accurate" views. That might explain why they almost never quoted the Bible even though they claimed to be speaking for it. Their reasoning was so bad I left the room a couple of times to go find other things to do. Eventually I watched the DVD in its entirety, and was less than pleased at the way Strobel packaged it.

1. Christians will often say that God allows freedom in order to make love possible. Respectfully.. can someone please show me where this is in the Bible? You can find 100 "Christian" philosophers to say it, but can you find one *Bible verse* to say it? If so, please let me know so I can finally get off this soap box. Not only is this concept nowhere in the Bible, but embracing it puts one in the horrible position of being completely unable to explain the myriad of verses where God deliberately hardens people's hearts and blinds their eyes so that they cannot make a moral decision in His favor. [NOTE: There are several reasons to explain why God did this, and I'll be happy to discuss them with you. But the reasons presented in DVD leave no room for this often-repeated aspect of God's character.] Here are a *few* examples of this principle at work:
- Pharaoh (Exodus, specifically Ex 10:1-2 or 14:17, etc, etc. Please read *why* God said He would do these things and note that Paul affirms this same reason in Rom 9:17-18. This side of God never came out in the DVD);
- King Sihon (Deut 2:30)
- Canaanites (Josh 11:19-20. Like it or hate it, please note what this plainly says about God's *intent*.
