Product description

Was God telling the truth when he said, "You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart"? In his #1 bestseller The Case for Christ, Lee Strobel examined the claims of Christ, reaching the hard-won verdict that Jesus is God's unique son. In The Case for Faith, Strobel turns his skills to the most persistent emotional objections to belief--the eight "heart barriers" to faith. This Gold Medallion-winning book is for those who may be feeling attracted to Jesus but who are faced with difficult questions 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. "Everyone--seekers, doubters, fervent believers--benefits when Lee Strobel hits the road in search of answers, as he does again in The Case for Faith. In the course of his probing interviews, some of the toughest intellectual obstacles to faith fall away." --Luis Palau "Lee Strobel has given believers and skeptics alike a gift in this book. He does not avoid seeking the most difficult questions imaginable, and refuses to provide simplistic answers that do more harm than good." --Jerry Sittser, professor of religion, Whitworth College, and author of A Grace Disguised and The Will of God as a Way of Life

Customer reviews

By Roni Rebecca Jantzen 30 Oct 2011 5

I really like Lee Strobel's thought-provoking "Case" series. For each chapter of this book, he poses a question representing a common barrier to embracing the Christian faith. He then tracked down experts in each field to document their answers to these tough faith challenges. This book is a great start to apologetics and a very enjoyable read.

Since I own A Case for Christ and A Case for a Creator, I just needed this one to complete the set! However, buyer beware, the edition pictured isn't actually what I got in the mail. The one I received has the same ISBN as noted here but the cover art is a brown and green image of a bridge (see http://www.bookdepository.com/Case-for-Faith-Lee-Strobel/9780310235088). So if like me you already have other books in this set, and you want to match them with this blue-covered one, this is the wrong item - look elsewhere.

Edition issues aside, this is a really wonderful book. Highly recommended.

'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
