Has Science Discovered God? When Lee Strobel was a high school freshman, science convinced him that God didn't exist. Since then, however, incredible scientific discoveries have not only helped restore Lee's faith, but have strengthened it. Lee is not alone. More and more scientists, confronted with startling, cutting-edge evidence from many areas of research, no longer believe the universe just 'happened' or that life arose by mere chance. Behind a universe of staggering complexity, they are seeing signs of a Master Designer. Are your science textbooks still telling you the same 'facts' that Lee's did years ago? Prepare to be astonished by what some of today's most respected experts have to say about: The birth of the universe Darwinism and the origin of life The astounding fine-tuning of the cosmos Amazing molecular machines and DNA research Weigh the evidence for yourself. Then consider this question: Could it be that the universe looks designed ... because it is?

'...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.
' ... 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
