In his #1 bestseller 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.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shannon | 1/28/2014

    " The author takes you on a journey to listen to how various Christians answer questions that pose barriers to faith, as reflected in his interview with Charles Templeton and Templeton's book Farewell to God: My Reasons for Rejecting the Christian Faith. It was an interesting journey that introduced me to a number of scientists, journalist, philosophers and scholars that I had not read before, and now I have some more books to read. "

    " Pretty good book presenting arguments against some of the major stumbling blocks related to Christian faith. I wish that the author had written a little bit more instead of just detailing interviews that he had with a few experts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Krista | 1/7/2012

    " My mother who just knows that I am going to hell bought me this book. I knew most of the arguments, we were taught well, it just seems that so much of what is going on in the world is blamed on religion or because of someone's faith. I am a non practicing, non hating, Presbyterian. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Darius Liddell | 9/4/2011

    " Proves that doubt is healthy for strong faith. A pleasant read for the strongest atheist and most adamant believer. Well-written, honest. Yes. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Wulfgar | 8/13/2011

    " You cannot prove that the bible is true and factual by only using the bible as your prove. At least the first half is interview with different Christians. I gave up after getting about half way through the book. This book is not for someone that has any doubts in their faith. "

    " I've turned to this book, and the two others by Strobel, when I've hit rough patches and needed to be convinced that God is really there. This book is compelling, well-written, and just makes me feel better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shannon | 3/6/2011

    " The case for faith, I get. I don't put up too much of a struggle there. The case for organized religion is a bit more challenging for me. This book addressed the former rather than the latter, so I didn't gain much new insight. "
