Was God telling the truth when he said, 'You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart'?
In his #1 bestseller The Case for Christ, Lee Strobel examined the claims of Christ, reaching the hard-won verdict that Jesus is God's unique son. In The Case for Faith, Strobel turns his skills to the most persistent emotional objections to belief---the eight 'heart barriers' to faith. This Gold Medallion-winning book is for those who may be feeling attracted to Jesus but who are faced with difficult questions 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.
'Everyone---seekers, doubters, fervent believers---benefits when Lee Strobel hits the road in search of answers, as he does again in The Case for Faith. In the course of his probing interviews, some of the toughest intellectual obstacles to faith fall away.'
---Luis Palau
'Lee Strobel has given believers and skeptics alike a gift in this book. He does not avoid seeking the most difficult questions imaginable, and refuses to provide simplistic answers that do more harm than good.'
---Jerry Sittser, professor of religion, Whitworth College, and author of A Grace Disguised and The Will of God as a Way of Life

Anyone that appreciates thinking NEEDS to read this book. Challenging and informative, this book does exactly what the back claims - strengthens the faith of Christians while answering strong objections of skeptics. This is not just a lofty philosophy book, but also one that teaches on faith, wait faith is, and how faith affects our daily lives. If you have doubts, questions or interests about the Christian faith, this book is for you. Reader Suggestions - A basic background on Christianity and the Bible, though not necessary, is very helpful for some parts of this book. Follow the helpful reference list for more insight.

I have recently read the book,The Case For Faith, by Lee Strobel, a journalistic investigation to the objections of Christianity, and I couldn¿t let it down from the moment I read the thesis. Being a skeptic once myself, I see now that the objections I would once dwelled in have indeed an answer. Lee Strobel faces the philosophical and scientific challenges to the Christian faith with an open mind and brings clarity to them with concrete answers. This book serves both believers and non-believers alike. The objections that I once wrestled with are followed through with rational and corroborative evidence. Like in a courtroom both sides of the story are presented, leaving out any biased testimony to rekindle accusations. From the moment the thesis is established the format of the book unfolds itself with in the road to answers, not avoiding the details of potential loopholes. From the most common brought up objection against God- the theory of evolution- to ¿It¿s Offensive to Claim Jesus Is the Only Way to God¿- this book stares at the misconceptions and delivers. The answers provided by scientists, philosophers, and other thinkers alike, not only alter the mind, but also supplies food for intellect. Finding perspective with in the boundaries of a world filled with questions about origin, meaning and destiny, it is sometimes hard to come about with convincing information to satisfy faith over reason. However, I believe this book unites the power of an intelligent faith over the cliché of blind faith. Being a student in high school, I sincerely see the need for this information to be shared with others, which is what I¿m planning to do. Many of my friends I feel would appreciate the long-awaited side of the story to the often thought of unanswerable questions to skepticism.

I gave this book four stars because it was interesting and it made me think. The information in the book was very well researched and Lee Strobel did a great job with his interviewing and making sure he got everyone to talk about both sides of the argument for God. I think that I would have enjoyed this book more if it had been just an article rather than a whole book but that is neither here nor there. I was excited in the beginning when they were discussing free will and how it gives people a choice to love God or not. But free will also causes people to do terrible things sometimes. The book says that only when people seek God do they find Him, and I totally agree. I enjoyed the argument about how the universe came into being. I don't think that it just appeared from nothing but it is amazing that some people do believe that rather than believing in a divine being. I enjoyed how the book also discussed rationality and how its almost more rational to believe in God than it is to not believe. Overall, great book I encourage both Christians and non-Christians alike to read this book. It has made me a stronger believer in God.

This was better than the Case for Christ! The Introduction made me want to go and evangilize someone! The objections were really helpful (especially with Stroebel's atheistic background) I'm glad I wasn't caught without them. But the last objection was by far the most useful and important to anyone who associates with non-Christians or peole who are troubled with their Christian beliefs! If nothing else read the intro and eigth (last) objection! Praise the Lord for such a book!!!

A diligently pursued search for Truth. A great resource for those who find themselves wrestling with "intellectual concerns" regarding their faith.

This book provides support for those who might be struggling with their faith, yet reinforcement for those who are firm in it. Mr. Strobel speaks from a personal platform, making this a soul-searching read.

I have just began reading this book and am already having a hard time putting it down. It addressess as the questions that are on my mind especially in light of the state of the world today. (ie: the fight against terrorism) I have already read 'The Case for Christ' and know that this book will be just as informative and life-changing.

Outstanding book! I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for answers to some of the tough questions. Answers the questions asked by many of us for a very long time.

This book is a great look at the Christian faith. It explains each of the arguments of non-believers and gives evidence to support Christianity through science and history. It is a great read for those questioning Christianity and Christians alike. Strobel provides hundreds of facts to defend the faith that so many of us share. Pick up a copy of A Case for Christ as well, both are great reads!

What I enjoyed most were all the references that Lee Strobel includes in this book. For those who don't know where to begin finding books on subjects about the Bible, or your faith in general, that you've often wondered about, this book has many good references to begin with. Not only that, but this book was an excellent source within itself in helping to solidify my faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Lee Strobel has introduced my Bible study group to a new perspective on fielding questions from interested nonbelievers. We are really enjoying each chapter and sharing the information with people outside of our group. This book handles a lot of the questions that I would never have even considered, because I already know the Lord. How wonderful to know this could help us bring others close to Him - to heal, to love, to LIVE!!!

THE CASE FOR FAITH is a companion book to the wonderful THE CASE FOR CHRIST, written by the same author. While THE CASE FOR CHRIST presents evidence for the person of Jesus Christ, THE CASE FOR FAITH provides answers to those tough questions that everyone asks and/or wonders about. I highly recommend this book to everyone--from born-again Christians to non-believers. Extremely well-written, thoroughly documented and researched. AWESOME!!

In, The Case For Faith, Lee Strobel brings together some of the best minds in Christianity to answer the questions that skeptics ask. Drs. Peter Kreeft, William Lane Craig, Walter Bradley, Norman Geisler,Ravi Zacherias, J.P. Moreland, John Woodbridge,and Lynn Anderson offer some of the best reasons to believe that exist. Some of the other reviewers didn't think that this book gave reasons that would hold up to any arguments, and that clearly displayed their presuppositions concerning faith. Most of the people interviewed have debated prominent athiests and non-believers, and have done very well. (See, williamlanecraig.com, or normgeisler.com to find information on the debates)(from personal experience I have used the information from this book to witness and debate and found that the reasons to believe given in these two books win the argument because they are based on truth! This book is written in a very readable style and should be read with, The Case For Christ, by every believer. These books introduce some of the best thinkers of Christianity and are great introductions to apologetics.

An amazing book. Easy to read and to understand. Lee Strobel does an excellent point to ask the questions you are most likely to be asked by skeptics. This should become number one on any person's list of books to read.

Absolutely amazing! Just as the book offers, God's face is revealed through reading this work of love. Lee Strobel amplifies God's true love for us and gives solid and logical responses to the toughest challenges to God's allowance of evil. Bravo!

Wow -- this book managed to provide persuasive answers to my biggest objections to Christianity! I've wrestled for years with the question of why there's so much evil and suffering in the world if God is supposed to be loving, and why a supposedly loving God would send people to hell. Those are two of the 'big eight' objections to Christianity that Lee Strobel tackles in this sequel to his excellent book, 'The Case for Christ.' Other issues include whether scientific people can accept miracles, why is it rational believe Jesus is the only way to God, doesn't evolution disprove creation, why is church history filled with violence, can the Bible be trusted, and so on. He pursued answers from some of the most articulate and thoughtful Christian thinkers, including Peter Kreeft of Boston College, Norman Geisler, Ravi Zacharias, and William Lane Craig. This book doesn't give 25-cent answers to million-dollar questions. It provides substantive and in-depth analysis, and yet does so in a highly readable way. I'd STRONGLY recommend this book to any Christian who, like me, wrestles with doubts from time to time. I'm going to buy other copies to give to my friends who are skeptical of Christianity. Not only will this book help them get beyond the obstacles between them and God, but it also contains a summary of the historical evidence for Christianity that the author explored in his previous book. I'll probably have to buy another copy for myself, too, since my first one is so dog-eared and full of underlining and highlighting!

Have you looked in the reviews section of the prodigal son? Check it out! There is someone who is doing a Christian RP there and it sounds like their motives are all Christ - based. I might join, you should too! Tey are calling it Gods Team
