Lee Strobel's Books

The Case for Faith


5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Convincing Read, November 25, 2008
Lee Strobel has a way of instantly capturing your attention and keeping it until the last sentence. His books are not only informative they are enlightening. From the start of "The Case for Faith," Lee Strobel asks the most difficult questions you could imagine. These are questions that trouble believers and unbelievers alike.

For the answers to his questions he contacts experts and interviews each one on one of the topics/questions presented in this book. Why do many scientists no longer believe that life emerged by chance? Is Jesus the only way to God? Can faith really stand up to reason? How can we worship a God who apparently called for the killing of innocent children in the Old Testament? Why would a loving God torture people in an eternal hell? If God is so loving why does evil and suffering exist?

The questions are tough but the answers are comforting. For years I have struggled with these same questions and finally I was able to read answers that made sense. If you are looking for answers to extremely difficult questions then I can highly recommend this book.

What Jesus Would Say

4.0 out of 5 stars Life-Changing Lessons, October 26, 2008
"What Jesus Would Say" is a fairly short book with life-changing lessons. By imagining what Jesus would say to prominent celebrities, Lee Strobel makes Jesus' teachings more accessible. I found the book fairly fun to read and it is full of great insights. Lee Strobel gives a short biography on each celebrity and then discusses their lives in more detail. What is it that Madonna is actually looking for in life? Why is it more difficult for rich men like Donald Trump to get into heaven? The "Top Ten Things" Jesus might say to David Letterman is supposed to be funny not irreverent. For the most part, the things Jesus says fits with his teachings while he was here on earth. I can only recommend this to you if you like imagining what Jesus might say and are not offended by this idea. I've also enjoyed reading The Case for Christ: A Journalist's Personal Investigation of the Evidence for Jesus and The Case for a Creator: A Journalist Investigates Scientific Evidence That Points Toward God.
