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.
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.Read more ›
I thought this was such a powerful video for evangelism (especially for the youth of America) I just bought 5 more copies to share with different youth groups I'm involved with. They should broadcast this video 24/7 on some TV station so the entire world could come to understand that if everyone accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior, and modeled their life after his teachings, there would be world peace: no more hunger, no more thirst, no more homelessness, no more loneliness, no more ignorance, no more fear, no more hate. It's what we all want but choose many false gods hoping they will get us there. It just doesn't work and God allows the centuries to roll by hoping we learn from our mistakes and finally figure out that Jesus truly is the Way, the Truth and the Life.
But sadly, we live in a country that despises Christ and shuns him from our government, our classroom, and our courts. And yet, we continually ask God to "Bless America..." What hypocrites we must appear in the eyes of God.
But this video. Share it with everyone you know. Let peace begin with me...
May God bless you and strengthen you...
