This book is for those who feel an attraction to Jesus but have doubts. The author is a journalist and former athiest who's investigation of objections/questions of Christianity lead him to accept Christ and become a teaching pastor.
Skeptical about Christianity? Ever wonder why bad things happen to good people? Don't get tangled up in the atheistic double-talk. Strobel explains how faith is seamlessly and inseparably meshed with mankind's free will. If you are looking for some real answers to some of the major objections to Christianity, I'd consider this book authoritative. Those who seek Him will find Him.
Now in this eagerly anticipated sequel of The Case for Christ, The Case for Faith investigates the nettlesome issues and doubts of the hearts that can threaten anyone's faith, even if he or she believes in Jesus Christ. Strobel again seeks out the experts as an investigative reporter to uncover answers to the toughest issues of the Christian life.
As a "recovering" Catholic and agnostic I found this book to be annoying. The author only very thinly veils his evangelism. It was given to me by a Christian friend who felt I would be persuaded by the fact that the author was a lawyer and a former atheist. I was not.
Strobel lost me within the first chapter. One does not "prove" an argument by first assuming that it is true. A personal epiphany is not an irrefutable or fact-based proof of God or the indisputability of the need for faith. Nor does it provide very interesting reading in this particular faith. I think this book could more accurately be described as "support for people who already have faith and want to believe that their faith is reasoned". This strikes me as bizarre, since faith is exactly what one must have when reason and logic no longer provide solutions or solace.
Bottom line - if you don't already have faith and are looking to find some...you won't find it here.
