The Case for a Creator explored the scientific evidence for God;
The Case for Christ investigated the historical evidence for Jesus;
The Case for Faith responded to eight major objections about Christianity;
The Case for The Real Jesus refuted the current challenges to the Bible and Christ …
Now, in The Case for Grace, Lee Strobel crafts a compelling and highly personal experiential case for God, focusing on Gods transforming work in the lives of men and women today.
Writing with unusual candor, Lee draws upon his own journey from atheism to Christianity to explore the depth and breadth of Gods redeeming love for spiritually wayward people. He travels thousands of miles to capture the inspiring stories of everyday people whose values have been radically changed and who have discovered the "how" and "why" behind Gods amazing grace. Youll encounter racists, addicts, and even murderers who have found new hope and purpose. Youll meet once-bitter people who have received Gods power to forgive those who have harmed themand, equally amazing, people mired in guilt who have discovered that they can even forgive themselves.
Through it all, you will be encouraged as you see how Gods grace can revolutionize your eternity and relationships… starting today.

Floyd JohnsonUpstate NYAge: 55-65Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5Grace as seen in the lives of others ...August 7, 2015Floyd JohnsonUpstate NYAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I had been a Christian for almost 20 years, and that was 20 years ago, when I first began to truly understand Grace. I had failed my wife, my family, and my God. And I finally learned what Grace was all about. Though it was not the beginning of my understanding of Grace, Chuck Swindoll's The Grace Awakening made the biggest dent in my understanding of Grace back then; but every so often, I need a swift hit on the side of the head to remind me what Grace is all about.
This year, Lee Strobel's The Case for Grace provided that hit. The book provides a series of biographical sketches, including his own, of men and women who, after living particularly trying lives, came to understand the nature of Grace in their own lives and found ways of sharing that Grace with others. The stories are well done, with enough detail to let the reader know the backgrounds, both the good and bad, of each character, but also provide keys to how they had discovered Grace and how it changed their lives. In some ways, each story echoed my own from 20 years earlier.
My greatest disappointment as I read the book was finding men and women who had already been or who would have been highly successful whether they found Grace or not. I would like to have found a story or two of ordinary men and women, people from the working class, people who had to struggle with tight budgets, clogged drains, and broken cars, whose attitudes and actions had been touched by Grace. Lee Strobel's stories focus on those whose lives have made a visible impact - where many who are touched by Grace will find an appreciation for who and where they are, not so much changed by what they do, but by how they perceive the world in which God has already placed them. These stories may not be as inspiring, but they would give a more complete look at the effect of God's Grace on a broken world.
Strobel begins by quoting Thomas C. Oden, "[Grace is necessary] to know truth, avoid sin, act well, pray fittingly, desire salvation, begin to have faith and persevere in faith. [Grace ... is nothing less than] the motivating power of the Christian life." The book accomplished this thesis for this reader. My thought is that it will for others as well.

Easy to read, thought provoking. Used one of the chapters to share at ladies group with non Christians and fellow Christians. Sometimes we think these books may be dry, hard slogging to read. Not this one.
Christ loves us no matter what we do, how we see ourselves. We are unworthy but His grace, aaahhh, it defies explanation. This is a book that is worth sharing.

I was moved to tears, but more importantly, to self-reflection by every account of grace and its transformational power. I am looking forward to sharing this treasure as a gift or a small group study. May God continue to use Mr. Strobel to share Christ with others.
