Description
In his #1 best-seller The Case for Christ, legally trained investigative reporter Lee Strobel examined the claims of Christ, reaching the hard-won verdict that Jesus is God's unique son. people grapple with serious concerns about faith in God. As in a court of law, they want to shout, Objection They say, If God is love, then what about all the suffering in our world? Or, If Jesus is the door to heaven, then what about the millions who have never heard of him? Or, If God cares for everyone, then why does he eternally torture some in hell? In The Case for Faith, Strobel turns his tenacious investigative skills to the most persistent emotional objections to belief--the eight heart barriers to faith. The Case for Faith is for those who may be feeling attracted to Jesus but who are faced with formidable intellectual barriers standing squarely in their path.

Was God telling the truth when he said, "You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart"?

In The Case for Faith, bestselling author, journalist, and former atheist Lee Strobel turns his investigative skills to the most persistent emotional objections to belief in God—the eight "heart barriers" to faith:

  • "Since evil and suffering exist, a loving God cannot"
  • "Since miracles contradict science, they cannot be true"
  • "Evolution explains life, so God isn't needed"
  • "God isn't worthy of worship if he kills innocent children"
  • "It's offensive to claim Jesus is the only way to God"
  • "A loving God would never torture people in Hell"
  • "Church history is littered with oppression and violence"
  • "I still have doubts, so I can't be a Christian"
  • This book is for those who may be feeling attracted to Jesus but who are faced with difficult questions standing squarely in their path. For Christians, it will deepen their convictions and give them fresh confidence in defending their faith to skeptical friends, or during the hardest of times, when they have to defend their faith to themselves in moments of doubt.

    Also available: The Case for Faith Spanish edition, kids' edition, and student edition. Plus, be sure to check out Lee Strobel's entire collection of Case for... books:
