Publisher's Summary

During his academic years, Lee Strobel became convinced that God was outmoded, a belief that colored his ensuing career as an award-winning journalist at the Chicago Tribune. Science had made the idea of a Creator irrelevant, or so Strobel thought.

But today science is pointing in a different direction. In recent years, a diverse and impressive body of research has increasingly supported the conclusion that the universe was intelligently designed. At the same time, Darwinism has faltered in the face of concrete facts and hard reason.

Has science discovered God? At the very least, it's giving faith an immense boost as new findings emerge about the incredible complexity of our universe. Join Strobel as he re-examines the theories that once led him away from God. Through his compelling account, you'll encounter the mind-stretching discoveries from cosmology, cellular biology, DNA research, astronomy, physics, and human consciousness that present astonishing evidence in The Case for a Creator.

    Story
    "Intelligent design spoken here."

    There is growing dissent to the standard naturalistic view of the beginnings of the universe. Einstein's theory of general relativity has led to general belief in the big bang theory. This results in the earth having a beginning.

    The author uses his standard practice of speaking with various experts in various fields whose research leads them to believe that our world could only have come into existence as a result of an intelligent designer.

    The interviews give the listener basic information and the ability to look further into those interviewed for more information in a particular discipline.

    Good listen.

    "Warning! This book is hazardous to your doubts!"

    This book is the result of the author's thorough investigation of evolution and the alternatives. It also chronicles his journey from atheism to becoming a born again Christian. By interviewing a number of leading scientists, he exposes the impossibilities of evolution as taught in public schools and universities. He uncovers the cover up attempts of evolutionary science. Listen to this book with an open mind. It is packed with information and evidence.

    "Good in a few places, average to boring in most"

    I had high hopes for this book but overall it was a disappointment.
    My title says it all for me.

    "Pretty good"

    I feel the book could be summed up by this quote towards the end of this book "If I was to embrace Darwinism and its underlying premise, I would have to believe nothing produces everything, that non-life produces life, that randomness produces fine tuning, that chaos produces information, that non-consciousness produces consciousness & that non-reason produces reason" And for him that would take way more of a leap of faith then to believe in a creator.

    Hardcore naturalist might as well not even read this book though, it only interviews the people they already ridicule, they will think the whole book is irrational, utter b.s propaganda & that Strobel should not be allowed to breed. There presuppositions and perspective will blot out every argument Strobel makes. They will claim none of it is science, yada yada, but they will fail to realize they have a double standard. For they are perfectly comfortable coming to naturalistic conclusions, and making naturalistic speculations and guesses, and naturalism is a philosophical world-view, a set of presuppositions that color all they see. They do not realize they are using science to promote their own philosophical worldview, all the while crying bloody murder the moment scientist claim science points to a Theist worldview. The fact is both sides have tons of evidence, and the judgment of whether the evidence is good or bad is fully dependent upon ones worldview. This means that evidence no matter HOW obvious, if in favor of God's existence, will be utterly stupid nonsense in the mind of naturalist, for there worldview does not allow it. PERIOD. The theist are guilty of bias too of course, We both are to a point like "Don't confuse me with the facts, I have my mind made up" Both sides can ALWAYS explain way the other side, ALWAYS. Its a matter of belief over a matter of evidence, no matter which belief you take, naturalistic or theistic, you will find butt loads of evidence supporting your view and Ph.D's back you up

    "Very good, but needs to explain Genesis better."

    As a Christian, I found the scientific information in this book very fascinating. It had many things I was aware of, and a lot of more recent scientific discoveries. It is just impossible to believe in evolution. I wish the author would have gone into more detail about creation as spelled out in the book of Genesis. Primarily more information regarding the age of the earth, as there is a lot of debate surrounding that subject. The website Answers in Genesis, by Ken Ham, does a really good job of explaining a lot of this which I wish the author of this book would have addressed, or even interviewed Ken Ham.

    "Perfect book for atheist or agnostics like I was."

    loved it! if you doubt the existence of God, believe there is only science, believe in evolution but still feel like something is missing. like somethings in science don't add up. this book is a great way to open your mind to a whole new and very plausible perspective.

    "Really? This is what this guy is selling?"

    I don't know if I have ever wasted as much time in my life as I had listing to this guy ramble and trying to twist easily explainable facts into some sort of Devine miracles. I guess it's meant for simpleminded people who don't have any knowledge of physics so that God can be the easy answer for everything.

    "Well done summary of recent research for a creator"

    I enjoyed the book from many different angles and 5 stars is warranted. The only critique would be the emphasis on christianity through the book. Would rather it be religion neutral. Even through I am a christian. Makes a stronger argument if specifics of faith are left out in my mind. Still would highly recommend. Only other comment is to have frequent updates of this title that include the latest scientific info. A book like this will become quickly outdated if it doesn't.

    "One of the best Apologetic books I've ever read."

    A journalist investigates scientific evidence that points toward God and the scientific guest contributors are stunning and engrossing. Really quite the learning experience for those that like their Apologetics dipped in science. Excellent book, in the top 5 apologetic books.
