Product Description

Strobel, whose apologetics titles The Case for Christ and The Case for Faith have enjoyed strong popularity among evangelicals, approaches creation/evolution issues in the same simple and energetic style. The format will be familiar to readers of previous Case books: Strobel visits with scholars and researchers and works each interview into a topical outline.

Although Strobel does not interview any "hostile" witnesses, he exposes readers to the work of some major origins researchers (including Jonathan Wells, Stephen Meyer and Michael Behe) and theistic philosophers (including William Lane Craig and J. P. Moreland). Strobel claims no expertise in science or metaphysics, but as an interviewer he makes this an asset, prodding his sources to translate jargon and provide illustrations for their arguments.

Publisher's Description

You meet skeptics every day. They ask questions like: Are your science teachers wrong? Did God create the universe? Is the Big Bang theory true? Here’s a book written in kid-friendly language that gives you all the answers. Packed full of well-researched, reliable, and eye-opening investigations of some of the biggest questions, Case for a Creator for Kids uses up-to-date scientific research to strengthen your faith in God’s creation.

Author Bio

Lee Strobel was the award-winning legal editor of The Chicago Tribune and is the bestselling author of The Case for Christ, The Case for Faith, The Case for a Creator, and The Case for Grace. With a journalism degree from the University of Missouri and a Master of Studies in Law degree from Yale, Lee has won four Gold Medallions for publishing excellence and coauthored the Christian Book of the Year. He serves as Professor of Christian Thought at Houston Baptist University. Visit Lee's website at:

Rob Suggs has been involved in three successful children's Bibles as writer, illustrator, or both. He and his wife, Gayle, have two children and live in Atlanta, Georgia.

Robert Elmer lives in the Seattle area with his wife and their little white dog, Farragut, who is named for the famous admiral. He is the author of over fifty books, most of them for younger readers (but some for grown-ups, as well). He enjoys sailing in the San Juan Islands, exploring the Pacific Northwest with his wife, and spending time with their three kids – along with a growing number of little grandkids.

New York Times bestselling author Lee Strobel revisits his arguments for intelligent design in Case for a Creator for Kids, this time using kid-friendly language and illustrations. Working with Rob Suggs and Robert Elmer, Strobel presents the basic reasons to believe in creation, helping kids understand principles such as the Big Bang theory, the complexity of DNA, and the finely-tuned workings of the earth itself, while guiding each child to draw his or her own conclusions from the evidence.

Strobel, best-known for writing Case for Christ, Case for Faith, and Case for a Creator, is well-qualified to write this book. He does an admirable job of explaining difficult scientific concepts in a way that children can understand, and the use of cartoon illustrations engages young readers’ attention. Kids will also enjoy the four short fiction stories at the end of the book that demonstrate a few of the principles Strobel has earlier explained.

Through this book, Strobel seeks to prove Genesis 1:1—that “in the beginning” God really did create “the heavens and the earth.” This book will be a valuable tool for parents or teachers seeking to enlighten children who are asking questions about creation or evolution. However, though most concepts are explained well, a few terms may still be difficult for younger kids to grasp. I recommend this book for children in upper elementary or early junior high. – Ruth Anne Burrell,

    As a Christian and avid Defender of the Faith, I must say that the consensus that the universe began at the big bang theory is widely accepted as the standard model for Cosmology and even among the leading Christian Scholars. Even one recommended by Paul in his step 4. Norman Geisler is an avid Defender of The Big Bang Theory because IT SUPPORTS Creation out of Nothin. The Big Bang theory shows a beginning, and if there is a beginning, there must be a cause.

    Christian Science is not only Young-Earth Creationism. Men like William Lane Craig, Francis Schaefer, Hugh Ross, Norman Geisler, Frank Turek and others who are and have been on the frontlines of defending the Christian faith are all men who have advocated Big Bang Cosmology and defending the interpretation that the Earth could be more than 6000 years old by advocating that the universe is millions of years old. You don't have to compromise on the Doctrine of Creation to do so - so giving this book to your kids is not going to be preaching heresy or producing heretics.

    Lastly, the Bible is the Written Word of God, but Creation is the Spoken Word of God (Psalm 19:1-2). The Scientific Evidence that shows the age of the universe and its beginning actually help to support the Biblical account of Creation.

    So, Parents, don't shy away from getting this for your kids. It accords with the eveidence and the bible. Remember, to deny the scientific fact would make us seem like we are making God out to be deceitful because he wouldn't write something that says 1 thing and then create something that says another. The good news for us is that the Big Bang Theory is widely accepted as the standard model of Cosmology which a leading defender of the Faith will state in The Case for the Creator, normal edition. Additionally, the creation days in Genesis can very easily be accepted as long periods of time because of the use of the Hebrew word "Yam" in Scripture not just referring to a 24 hour days cycle, but a period of time.

    Regardless, Please don't deny your kids this excellent equipping tool because there is an issue of interpretation concerning the issue of days in creation. This book is great in answering objections that skeptics pose because it deals specifically with the fact that the universe had a beginning and therefore needs a cause, the theory of evolution, the fine tuning of the universe which can't be the result of random chance, and uiltimately gives a great cumulative case for a creator.

    This book and the other two in the series are great for our homeschooled 6th grader but would apply very well to students in other settings.

    Great apologetics and ideas on sharing their faith without embarrassment.

    Here is what I recommend for everyone to make this "Creation Science" debate much easier.

    Either take two courses on Biblical hermeneutics and Biblical exegesis or in the least read the following four books:

    1. How to Read a Book 1972 Adler

    2. Living By the Book: The Art and Science of Reading the Bible 2007 Hendricks

    3. How to Study the Bible:2009 John MacArthur

    4. A General Introduction to the Bible 1986 Giesler

    (Woman love Kay Arthur and she has a book on Inductive Study but I have noticed many men like myself have trouble relating to woman authors.)

    5. Then reread The Bible

    Now by applying hermeneutics and exegesis to The Bible it is kind of like being scientific.

    The problems seem to occur when people turn to science first for answers and then try to apply their findings to the Scriptures.

    This seems to be where Strobel has gone wrong. Has original method worked well in leading him to Christ;

    but, (you're gonna love this) he never evolved! I think he was so busy ministering to so many other people

    and living in the limelight of a great book - that no one ever ministered to him and he never grew enough in his

    Christianity to realize "trust not in your own understandings".

    For example to take "the big bang" theory and then say oh yes that sounds like when God created the sun - huh?

    And then go further to draw a scientific conclusion. (That's as crazy as the gap theory!)

    Just as Christians should not try to pass themselves off as scientists without the proper training,

    scientists should not voice an opinion on young earth Christianity without spending at least 2 years studying at a Bible College.

    We bought Strobel's 3 pack from CBD to use in our homeschooling of 3 children and returned them the same day

    in exchange for Ken Ham Answers in Genesis materials. If we do not learn to stand on and defend our faith from

    the first chapter, the rest of The Bible will eventually unravel as well.

    So here is the simple answer that explains the scientific part - remembering that God is a God of balance as well.

    God creates Adam from dirt and then pretend one hour later He creates a modern day intelligent doctor and gives him all the tools and other scientific assistants to determine the age of Adam and they say Adam is 18 when really Adam is only one hour old. OR God places some stars in the sky and one hour later He creates the hubbel telescope and a group of astronomers and astrologists and scientists and tools to determine how old those stars are and they say the stars are millions of years old even though they are really one hour old. Get it?

    So even if you find emperical evidence supporting the appearance of an earth that is billions of years old, in its simplest form The Bible tells us the earth is less than 7000 years old.

    Start with right worldview and most problems are diminished.

    This is an excellent book for emerging young adults and preteens. Written in a form that is easily understood and enjoyable, this book shares deep truths about the Christian faith. It can be very confusing in this day and age with all the conflicting messages -- from school, the media, and those around us. I would highly recommend this book to any young person (or older) who is seeking the truth about Christianity or wanting to know why they believe what they believe. This was my daughter's favorite in the series.
