Is Faith Possible in Today's World?

It's not easy to believe in Christianity when there is pain all around you and issues that defy easy explanation. Unless there are answers to the questions you face.

Lee Strobel knows how important it is to find answers that ring true. With his background as an award-winning journalist, asking tough questions has been his business. And while his search for the truth convinced Lee that Jesus is real, it also confronted him with some particularly knotty, gut-level questions about Christianity you've likely asked as well: Why is there suffering? Doesn't science disprove miracles? What about hell-and the millions who've never heard of Jesus? Is God unjust? They're the kinds of conundrums that can block-and have blocked-people's faith.

But those questions don't have to block yours. Join Lee in a fascinating journey of discovery. You'll gain powerful insights that will reshape your understanding of the Bible. And you'll read true stories about people whose experiences demonstrate that faith in Jesus not only makes excellent sense, it makes a life-changing difference as well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Weak Attempt with Some Good Things I will simply say that the book was weak. There were a couple chapters I liked but the rest was ho-hum and didn't provide me with what I was looking for. The truth is there are a lot of questions in this world that are impossible to answer. We'd all love the answers and 100% proof or clarity on things and we won't get them. I think it's good to try but this book didn't come close to answering them for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect to guide kids to defend their faith This is another important book that any children should read. It will give a clear understanding of faith and how to be able to speak up when necessary. It will also show the child that it is okay to doubt and investigate so that he/she will be able to understand when he/she believes better. I particularly liked the explanation the author gave about doubt – it is a muscle that will strengthen your faith. I was like that when I became a believer. I doubted many things and researched. At first, my future husband would tell me just to believe but he then realized that how I was doing it was healthier in a way. So I searched and read and discover who God was in my life and how He was working in my life. At the end of the book, the child will find four stories that applies the lessons learned previously. These stories will help the child to understand how to apply something you have learned before in real life. This review was possible because I received a copy of Case for Faith for Kids from ZonderKids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeping the Faith About a year ago, I found myself sleepless, tossing and turning in my bed, unsatisfied with the faith that had seemed so reasonable to me for so long. In my despair, I found this book in my library, began to read and found myself unable to put it down. It answered the questions that had been plaguing me regarding the reliability of the gospels, the proof of evolution, the different theories surrounding Jesus' death, etc. Within the covers of this investigative novel, I found the answers I so desparately needed. I haven't had a sleepless night since. ALSO TO READ BY LEE STROBEL: - 'The Case for Faith' Answers the tough questions of Christianity, such as the reason for suffering, how a loving God could send people to hell, the death of innocents, etc. - 'Surviving a Spiritually Mismatched Marriage' Written by Strobel and his wife, it discusses the trials they encountered as Leslie found her faith and Lee struggled with her new-found reason for living, and his lack of belief

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage This book was a religious experience for me in the sense that it once and for all proved to me that there are no good answers the the great questions that Strobel asks. He asked good questions, but invariably accepted weak, even pathetic answers. I don't understand how anyone could like this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good introduction to apologetics Apologetics is the branch of Christian theology concerned with providing a rational defence of Christianity. In this book, Lee Strobel interviews leading Christian philosophers and theologians to get answers to the most pressing objections people have against Christianity. The concept of Hell, the "impossibilitity" of miracles, the evolution issue and the seeming vengefulness of God in the Old Testament are all discussed. In addition, the Problem of Evil (i.e. How can a loving all-good, all powerful God allow evil and suffering?) is discussed in great detail. The fact that Strobel is a former journalist leads him to ask the difficult questions and force the experts he interviews to give clear, thoughtful answers. In addition, at the end of every chapter, two or three books are mentioned to consider for further reading. There are also 8-10 questions at the end of every chapter that makes this book appropiate for a Bible Study group or other kinds of group environments. If you are taking your first steps to exploring Christianity as a Christian or a non-Christian, this and Strobel's other book, "The Case for Christ" (which examines the historical evidence for the New Testament and the life of Jesus Christ) are great introductory texts.
