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 Lifeshow more

Review quote

'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 Journalshow more

Our customer reviews

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.show more
