With a journalism degree from the University of Missouri and a Master of Studies in Law degree from Yale, Lee wrote 3 Gold Medallion winners and the 2005 Book of the Year with Gary Poole.  He and his wife live in Colorado.  Visit Lee's website at: www.leestrobel.com.

 

Leslie Strobel has been involved in women's ministries and one-on-one mentoring in the churches where the Strobels have served. She and Lee live in Orange County, California, and are the parents of two grown children.

Library Journal

High school sweethearts whose marriage seemed to have been made in heaven, the Strobels enjoyed a good life with two children and experienced few problems until Leslie became a committed Christian, much to the dismay of her husband, a confirmed atheist. The Strobels struggled along in this "spiritually mismatched" state for quite a while until Lee made the conscious decision to become a Christian as well. The Strobels do not advise couples who strongly disagree about religion to marry, but their book offers useful advice to couples who are spiritually mismatched, either from the beginning of their relationship or through a change in belief. Ideas about raising children and advice for single Christians are also included. Written in the first person, usually by Lee, the text is readable and helpful. While not a substitute for professional marriage counseling, the Strobels' suggestions are based on years of practical experience and will be useful for a Christian audience. Recommended for church libraries and for public libraries serving a sizable Christian population. Mary Prokop, Savannah Country Day Preparatory Sch.

Publisher's Weekly

Lee Strobel, whose bestselling The Case for Christ has become a standard work of evangelical apologia, was once not a Christian at all, and was openly hostile to the faith. When his wife, Leslie, became a Christian several years into their marriage, he was furious, and their union seemed doomed until "Leslie figured out how to live out her faith in a way that began to attract rather than repel [him]." In Surviving a Spiritual Mismatch in Marriage, the Strobels describe their experiences in order to help other Christians particularly women who are married to nonbelievers. Although their own ending (culminating in his conversion) followed the Christian storybook, they caution readers that it is better to concentrate on one's own spiritual growth and example than to have unrealistic expectations about a spouse's future conversion.

    I've only read through 1/2 the book so far but it has released me of all of my worries about my husband who is not (yet) a believer in Jesus Christ. I used to worry all the time about this, but this book reminds me that this is not mine to worry about. Ultimately it is between him and the Lord. I must be an example of a good Christian and show him the love he deserves. Just by doing this it has already changed our relationship for the better. The things that this couple went through we have presently been in. VERY similar responses and reactions between the two of us as this couple.

    The advice they have given has helped tremendously along with many prayers asking for God's guidance. I highly recommend taking the time to read this book if you have a mismatched marriage. It's eye opening!

    I always loved Strobel's books. My problem is not with the content but with the package authorizations of the ebook. We are not allowed to print and read in our convenience . Someone who hasn't a kindle, will be stuck with the choice of reading it on a laptop (or even on a desktop if the customer downloaded it first on a desktop, since no multiple downloads is allowed).

    Till now, I didn't read it, and I don't think I will in this format.

    I just love the way Lee really gets it ! He is good at getting things across to his readers. Even if you feel as alone and frustrated as I do in your mismatched marriage, this book gives you hope and comfort to keep moving forward.

    An absolute must for anyone struggling with a non-Christian spouse. This book was a God send to me at a very crucial time for me, and the ideas, suggestions, and honest sharing in this book changed my outlook toward my spouse and the way I handle situations. I am so thankful for this book.
