This timeless, compelling, and thought-provoking book on the Christian faith, now updated, includes two all-new chapters and a current list of recommended resources for further study.
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 bestselling 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.
