Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from science and biblical teaching support each other Lee Strobel grew up in a nominally religious home, but the nearly universal teaching of Darwinian evolution in his educational experience, beginning in high school biology and throughout college, led him to become an atheist. However, after the Yale-educated law journalist’s wife was converted to Christ, he began to rethink the foundations of his unbelief, embarking upon the adventure of a lifetime by using his talents as an investigative journalist to examine the facts. I purchased all of Strobel’s major books, including The Case for Christ and The Case for Faith in a combined edition and The Case for the Real Jesus, but decided to start with what I would consider “the beginning,” The Case for a Creator. After all, the Bible opens with the statement, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). After writing about his own background, influenced by images of Darwinism yet eventually developing doubts, Strobel interviews scientific experts in several fields—cosmology, physics, astronomy, biochemistry, biological information, and consciousness—to show how their studies provide astonishing evidence for creation rather than purely naturalistic evolution. To be honest, this book sometimes borders on the academic, delving into subjects which would be far beyond the comprehension of most people, including myself. However, Strobel does try to translate the language of the scientists and philosophers he interviews into more popular style so that it can be more readily understood by those without scientific training. Each chapter also contains suggestions for further reading on particular issues of science and faith. Of course, rabid atheists will dismiss Strobel’s work with a wave of the hand as nothing more than a biased attempt to bolster a dubious claim that is based only on mythology to begin with. One person said something to the effect that all Strobel did was interview creation scientists to prove creationism. However, the scientists whom he interviewed are not “creation scientists” but primarily proponents of Intelligent Design, and there is a difference. The book accepts, at least on the surface, the idea of “the Big Bang” and a billions-of-years existence for the universe, so there will be disagreement on certain points. I realize that some tension exists between young earth creationists and advocates of Intelligent Design, but even as a young earth creationist myself I believe that the two groups have common cause. Strobel concludes that, when correctly interpreted, science and biblical teaching support each other and quotes physicist Paul Davies who says, "…science offers a surer path to God than religion." With much of what passes for “religion” these days, he may be right.
