"Strobel's appraoch is hard-hitting, clear, and persuasive." — (Christian Research Journal)
"Despite the rather heavy matters discussed, this book is easy to read. The analogies and anecdotes are very helpful in explaining a deep subject on an understandable level." — (The Conservative Theological Journal)
"...the book incorporates Strobel's journalistic skills to tackle several of the most persistent objections to belief in Christ....The Case for Faith is for readers who may be attracted to Jesus, but still have formidable intellectual barriers with emotional undertow inhibiting them from fully committing their lives to Christ....As one who was a spiritual skeptic for many years, Strobel relates well to those who object to the faith on emotional and intellectual grounds...." — (Christian Retailing)
"When Strobel interviews his subjects, he approaches the questions just as a non-believer would, and he's not afraid to press until he gets a satisfactory answer....The Case for Faith will provide the tools you need to remove...obstacles from a non-believers path to faith in Christ." — (Singing News)
I downloaded several of Less Strobel's books and all are good, but this is by far the best! He really tackles the toughest questions facing a Christian (or skeptic or unbeliever) and digs up some very good answers. If you only read one of Lee Strobel's books, this is the one I recommend!
This book was great information for both new and long time Christians. Apologetic s is new to me; a long time Christian and I found this book gave some good answers to the hard questions we of the Christian faith have been ask. I think most of us leaned on the fact that we are don't have to have all the answers and we do take things on faith and only God knows. Lee's interview method help to make it understandable and introduced you to many new people in this field for future reading. Life is short, it is nice to know what's next!
This is one of my favourite written books and now it's one of my most liked audio books. Lee Strobel raises most of the very sticky questions that people stumble over when it comes to a reasoned faith in the Bible and the goodness of God. He interviews capable individuals with well reasoned and evidence based answers rather than comfortable responses.
Dick Hill does a great job of reading the book without the intense Chicago accent for which Lee is known.
All in all, a great listen for those who want answers.
I didn't read the print version
Other books by Lee Strobel are on the same footing as this one. Lee sets up a series of questions about faith, Christ, etc, and answers them, one by one, by interviewing experts on the questions. He clearly outlines the qualifications of each participant, and does a great job at thoroughly erasing any doubts.
He's wonderful with all of his enunciations! I've read a review or 2 on here about how he wasn't very good, but surely they must jest. As a general rule, there are very few books that I listen to at x1 speed because almost any book at that speed is too slow and that's not the fault of the narrator. I'm sure they have to go very slow to relate to the lowest common denominator readers' ability to comprehend the story. That's what makes the app so great because you can speed them up!
There is no atheist in a fox hole; and there shouldn't be any outside of one either after reading this book!
I love Lee Strobel's work! He's the man! He answers questions that I personally have on my faith journey.
The author delivers the evidence as presented by multiple experts in an easy to understand manner. Makes a good effort to tackle and answer the tough questions many have about Christianity.
The reader must come away with a stronger faith as the result.
Increase your faith
When the author was speaking to a Charles Templeton (a prominent atheist), Lee and he were talking about Jesus. At one point Templeton starting crying and said "I miss him".
I have to be honest here and say I could not stand the performance. This may just be a personal thing, but I really struggled to even finish the book because of it. The performers style may work for a lot of people, but I did not like it. The performer sometimes laughed, sighed, and even cleared his throat in an attempt to create the effect of a conversation between Lee and those he interviewed. Again, for me, I did not care for it. To the performers credit, he was good at creating unique voices for each person interviewed and you can tell he put thought and effort into that. Still, it just didn't work for me.
The interview with Templeton was probably the most moving.
This is a good book, particularly for those new to apologetics. If you are, this is a great place to start, along with Strobel's other books. Once you have done that, consider getting the books of the people he has interviewed such as William Lane Craig and others. They dive much deeper into the topics touched on here.
"Stimulating, Challenging, Well worth the long long Listen!"
Phew this was a long listen! But so worth it! Great interviews with some gritty and highly intelligent responses that are connected fantastically to life...
