In an era of claims for the effectiveness of one's "faith", there is a need to clarify the question of "faith in WHOM, or in WHAT?". Simply having faith is inadequate if that faith has no foundation. Strobel deals more directly with this as a question which requires that clarification. His approach is simply to present actual case studies that the reader encounters in personal experience.As an active pastor, I can cite specific answers to a struggling seeker for a faith that has assurance. THE CASE FOR FAITH is an unexcelled reference handbook for those drifting in uncertainty.
I absolutely loved this book. For a person who has struggled with faith, I struggle no more. A lot of research was done in this book. I found it to be totally uplifting. I strongly recommend this book!
This is an incredible book. It is very thought provoking and it tackles some very tough questions about the Christian faith. I also purchased 'The Case for Christ' and 'The Case for a Creator'. I am now reading 'The Case for a Creator'. I would recommend these books to anyone who is a serious seeker of truth. I appreciate Lee Strobel's writing style and his earnestness of purpose; finding and presenting the "TRUTH". May our great God and Savior be glorified through these writings!
Strobel's series of books helps bring evidentialist apologetics to a user friendly level in a very readable manner. His interview subjects provide outstanding information filtered for a wide audience. The chapter in "Faith" with J.P. Moreland is worth the price of the book.
