Item description for Case For Faith (Pack of 6) (Package of 6) by Lee Strobel...
Overview This eagerly anticipated sequel to Lee Strobel?s best-selling The Case for Christ finds the author investigating the nettlesome issues and doubts of the heart that threaten faith. Eight major topics are addressed including doubt, the problem of pain, and the existence of evil. Pack of 6 mass market editions.
Publishers 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. But despite the compelling historical evidence that Strobel presented, many 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. For Christians, it will deepen their convictions and give them fresh confidence in discussing Christianity with even their most skeptical friends.

Thought-Provoking Topics for Group Study Nov 2, 2006
I purchased this book for our small group study after previously reading Stroebel's The Case for Christ. Strobel holds a Master of Studies in Law from Yale, was a journalist and former legal editor for the Chicago Tribune. The Case for Christ documented Stroebel's journey from atheist to Christian. In this book, Stroebel addresses the most common issues or objections expressed by non-believers toward the Christian faith. We selected this book because it deals with issues that are also troublesome topics for Jesus-followers. Stroebel lays each objection out and then, in the style of an investigative reporter he lays out the objections, taking the devil's advocate approach. Each objection is addressed by a different scholar, whom Stroebel introduces with a brief description of their educational background, publications and notable positions held in various religious and secular institutions. Although our group didn't always agree with the "defense" Stroebel's scholars presented for each objection, we found the topics to be thought-provoking and each stimulated a good discussion. As Christians, we wanted to to better understand and address our own faith struggles over these issues (evil & suffering, miracles vs science, evolution, ugly church history, etc.) This book is good for use in a discussion-oriented group study, but it is not your typical fill-in-the-blank "bible study" guide. The group needs to read each chapter (which are pretty long) before the study and you need someone who can prepare for and lead the discussion.
Strobel writes another winner Sep 26, 2006
Lee Strobel is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. His honesty and objectivity comes through in this book in which he turns his journalist instincts and questions to those who profess to have faith. Faith is often erroneously defined as belief without evidence. As Strobel shows in his interviews, nothing could be further from the truth. "Faith is the evident demonstration of realities though not beheld," which is the definition that the Bible gives and the definition that I agree with. Faith is not mere credulity as skeptics would like to believe. Strobel himself is a former atheist who coverted to Christianity. This gives his work credibility, I feel, due to the fact that he once asked these questions and--unlike many skeptics today--actively looked for the answers. Logic and reasonableness are found in the Bible and anyone who wants information regarding why people have faith should read this book with an open mind and a sincere heart.
eye-opening, mind-boggling, faith-affirming masterpiece May 9, 2006
First off, it's not a simple read through so be patient. Take time and find yourself on a path of discovery.
Strobel gives us a well researched tool that's a must read for all
Strobel's Second Apolgetic Work Continues His Search for Faith Sep 30, 2005
Like many American Christians, I was brought to church most Sundays and endured countless sermons and lessons. Despite this seemingly rich education on Christian principles, I never was exposed to a lesson or class on the existence of God; God's existence was assumed as fact. As I matured into my twenties and went to college, the existance of God was no longer taken for granted. I encountered many agnostics and atheists among my many college professors. The net result of their influence was to question my faith. I never lost my faith, but I found it was a faith that could not withstand scrutiny.
Reading Lee Stobel's "The Case For Faith" continued in me my search for the certainty of my faith. Strobel's book is an excellent place to start investigating the issues that question one's faith. Like in his previous book, "The Case for Christ", Strobel presents interviews with several Christian apologetics that involve issues related to the veracity of the Christian faith.
The issues are as follows:
Can a real living caring God exist in a world filled with evil? Are the Biblical miracles really true? Is evolutionary theory enough to explain life on earth? Is there only one way to GOd - through Jesus? How can a loving God throw his created people in hell? Is the church's history, with it's abuses, crusades, and inquistions, a reason not to believe in Christianity? If I am filled with doubts, can I still be a believer?
Mr. Strobel investigates each issue thoroughly. He approaches the issues as a skeptic who wants to be convinced of the truth. Strobel was once a skeptic himself and his investigative journalism convinced him of the truth of his Christian faith.
If you have questions about your faith, then this is a good starting point for your investigation. There are other books that go into more detail on all the issues raised here, and you may want to purchase these as well for further study. But this is a very good starting point for answering those nagging doubts about your faith in Christianity and one's faith in the person of Jesus.
