The Case for Faith: by Lee Strobel

Lee Strobel's previous book The Case for Christ described his two-year
investigation of the historical evidence that pointed him, an atheist at the
time, toward the verdict that God really exists and that Jesus actually is his
unique son. Strobel, an investigative reporter, went to the leading scholars and
authorities on biblical research and drilled them with facts and questions
concerning eyewitness evidence, corroborating evidence, documentary evidence,
scientific evidence, psychological evidence, and other historical proof.. His
conclusion: Jesus really is God's one and only son. (There will be a short
appendix in the back of The Case for Faith which summarizes the author's
findings in The Case for Christ.)

But what about other nettlesome issues and questions from the heart that hinder
the approach to God of a skeptic, the approach to God even of one already
convinced of the hard evidences like Strobel, whose minds refuse to fully
believe until their souls are fully convinced? Issues like: What about the
horrors in this world that seem to say a loving God doesn't exist? What about
hell and unanswered prayers? What about evil, where does it come from if a good
God oversees the world? If God is responsible for the church why has it been
hypocritical and brutal through the ages? If God is moral then what about the
slaughter of children in the Old Testament that he condones?

Like other skeptics, Strobel determined he needed answers to persuade his
intellect and convince his soul before he would be satisfied. In the same way
that he investigated and sought out the answers for the evidences for Jesus in
his first book, Strobel's search for satisfying answers for this book took him
from coast to coast, from lofty classrooms of Ivy League philosophers to the
seedy hole-in-the-wall offices of ministries to street kids, from brilliant and
degree-laden theologians to the private anguish of hurting people who know pain
and suffering firsthand. Strobel once again makes the journey to determine
whether the issues of the skeptics and doubts of the heart destroy the solid
reasons he had found for Christianity. Or confirm it.
