Product description

A Journalist Investigates Scientific Evidence That Points Toward God "My road to atheism was paved by science ...But, ironically, so was my later journey to God."--Lee Strobel During his academic years, Lee Strobel became convinced that God was outmoded, a belief that colored his ensuing career as an award-winning journalist at the Chicago Tribune. Science had made the idea of a Creator irrelevant--or so Strobel thought. But today science is pointing in a different direction. In recent years, a diverse and impressive body of research has increasingly supported the conclusion that the universe was intelligently designed. At the same time, Darwinism has faltered in the face of concrete facts and hard reason. Has science discovered God? At the very least, it's giving faith an immense boost as new findings emerge about the incredible complexity of our universe. Join Strobel as he reexamines the theories that once led him away from God. Through his compelling and highly readable account, you'll encounter the mind-stretching discoveries from cosmology, cellular biology, DNA research, astronomy, physics, and human consciousness that present astonishing evidence in The Case for a Creator. Mass market edition available in packs of six.

Review quote

"...Strobel exposes the shortcomings of Darwin's theory of evolution quite effectively...Strobel insists that with a fresh examination of the evidence which science now presents, Darwin's theory of evolution is no longer reasonable. There are too many gaps, unexplained hypotheses and conceptual flaws...This is an excellent book for those who wish to think seriously through the theory of evolution, and for those who continue to wrestle with Christianity's claims for a creator God. It is well written, the documentation is verifiable and Strobel's skills as a journalist and lawyer are self-evident in the book's composition..." * Christian Week -- Prince George, B.C. * Christian Week -- Prince George, B.C. "...While the subject matter is complicated and 'heavy in the head,' Strobel presents the information in a highly fluid, conversational manner. While science may not have discovered God, he finds that science is giving faith an immense boost as new findings emerge about the incredible complexity of the universe." * Carroll County News -- Alan Long (CNN Faith Editor * Carroll County News -- Alan Long (CNN Faith Editor
