Critic Reviews

"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)

The best of Lee Strobel

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!

Great Information on Christianity's Hard Questions

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!

All around, excellent

I first read this book about 10 years ago, and found this round listening to it even more inspiring. The narrator is tremendous and really pulls you into the book as the conversation it's meant to be. The content is laid out in a very logical, progressive way, and as your mind forms questions as you are listening, they are covered soon afterward.
I would highly recommend this to anyone. I think you'll get a completely different experience depending on where you are in life and with your own spiritual journey, just as I have.
I went back to this book to see how it covered evolution. I came away with a great answer on that topic, but also so much refreshment on some of the arguments against faith that just start to creep back into your life.
This will remain on my list to come back to down the road.

What I've been looking for exactly

If you could sum up The Case for Faith in three words, what would they be?

My thoughts exactly

What did you like best about this story?

The writer has really done the research on the questions real people with doubts ask. For years I have tried to pull these answers out of believers, not in argument but to understand. I know not everyone is schooled in apologetics but "Just believe" has always been a painfully insincere response. The writer acknowledges and speaks for every doubt in a reasonably skeptical manner. His writing is very compassionate and reasonable.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It gave me what I have been searching for for years. I don't think I cried physically, but the way he asked the question and the doubts he expressed were as if he had pulled them out of my own mind. For years I have felt like an alien trying to read the bible and go to church and feeling like no one else had quite the same doubts. Sure there are many Atheists and skeptics, but I was the only one trapped between wanting to believe and not being able to. As if some people were born being able to believe and I wasn't one of them. This book has validated my desire to believe and my struggle with doubts. Every doubt I could think of is addressed. No stone is left un-turned, no question is left un-asked or dubiously answered.

Any additional comments?

Definitely required reading for anyone struggling with doubts, and even for those without current doubts to be prepared when the questions come. This book promotes a faithful heart and speaks to a doubtful mind.

Great Intro To Apologetics

If you could sum up The Case for Faith in three words, what would they be?

Increase your faith

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Case for 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".

How could the performance have been better?

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.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The interview with Templeton was probably the most moving.

Any additional comments?

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.

Hmmmmm....

What did you love best about The Case for Faith?

I read this book because I've had doubts about things I've believed in all my life. The author attempts to address many of the issues I question. In general I wasn't too satisfied with most of his "answers", but when I was done, I had the urge to listen again to let things sink in a bit more.

What does Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The reader is extremely expressive, which adds to the experience, but actually goes overboard in some places.

Loved it

I did love this book. It was inciteful and eye opening. The end really made me see faith in a new way.

Great research! Great narrator!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Case for Faith to be better than the print version?

I didn't read the print version

What other book might you compare The Case for Faith to and why?

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.

What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

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!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

There is no atheist in a fox hole; and there shouldn't be any outside of one either after reading this book!

Any additional comments?

I love Lee Strobel's work! He's the man! He answers questions that I personally have on my faith journey.

Very good book.

All questions and answers are to the point and they make a lot of sense. There was no sugar coating and direct and challenging questions were asked and answered.

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...
