      A review of Chapter one only. It was pretty mind-blowing.Chapter 1 deals with the problem of Evil which is always the Big One, and here we find a very remarkable interview with Peter Kreeft, Christian philosopher. Maybe for the first time I am beginning to really get an idea of the worldview of the thinking Christian. It’s so alien. See what you think. As you will know the problem was stated by Epicurus 300 years before Christ : God may be all powerful and he may be Good but he cannot be both, [...]

    • Paul Bryant says:

      Some of this book is so unintentionally funny. The sub-title is “A Journalist Investigates the Toughest Objections to Christianity”. To do this our Mr Strobel puts these Toughest Objections to several top guys and presents us with these interviews where they wrestle mightily. So here he is talking with Norman L Geisler who is “one of the most well-known and effective defenders of Christianity in the world”. The Tough Objection at this point is “God isn’t worthy of worship if he kills [...]

      Rated 1 star for false advertising, unsatisfactory answers given.Here we have another spin-off for Strobel the self-proclaimed "former atheist," "skeptic," and "journalist." In brief, Strobel goes on a quest to find answers for "the toughest questions that stand between people and faith in Christianity." What's funny is that Strobel thinks (or pretends to think) that he can actually "get to the bottom of this Christianity thing once and for all," and that he can accomplish this monumental task a [...]

      I tried to read this with an open mind, but the lack of any sort of rational argument is making this very difficult. This book should be renamed "The Case for Faith (if you already have plenty of it)". Maybe I was wrong in going into this book thinking it was justifications for everyone and not just those who already have faith. Because if you don't already have faith, this book makes zero valid points and just frustrates any analytical reader with non-existant logic, false sincerity and a lot o [...]

      Closed-minded atheists will not appreciate this work (or any other pro-God book) and will ultimately find ways to ridicule its content simply because they don't want to hear/believe any case for our Creator. For Christians and open-minded seekers of Jesus, this book will open your eyes and hearts to understand the objections to Christianity and offer valid, beneficial viewpoints to help answer them. I've been a Christian for nearly twenty years and I've had many doubts about my faith in the past [...]

    • Peter says:

      Perhaps a litmus test for one's attitude toward fundamental Christianity.Good for those whose aim is to become or stay Christian, not so good for those without preconcieved notions.The book makes no secret of the fact that its design is to aid persons who already desire to be Christians.For example, the last chapter is dedicated to disputing "Obection #8: I Still Have Doubts, So I Can't Be A Christian".And in Strobel's Ch. 2 interview with William Craig, Craig states, "You don't need to have all [...]

    • Jamie says:

      This book is so worth reading! Even better than The Case for Christ! Parts of it are really scientific and, for me, those were difficult to get through, but I was astounded by the quotes of the atheistists! I had no idea that they had such little fact on which to base their beliefs. I didn't know that so many physicists and biologists today are Christians simply because of the evidence in their studies that cannot be ignored. One part of the book that stuck with me was when someone said that whe [...]

    • Laura says:

      After breaking up with the guy with the different religion, and being devistated it made me really sit down and think about my faith one more time. I enjoyed this book because it didn't make me question it even more, but made me think what else CAN I believe. This is the only thing that makes sense. And its ok to have questions still, but Faith is all that is needed.

    • Kathleen says:

      A perfect book for the intellectual, the doubter and the inquisitive. Mind gripping answers to soul seeking questions.

    • Brian says:

      It starts with 'You ask too many questions and you think too much' then gets worse from there. It presumes that the reader believes the Jesus mythology then goes ahead and uses quotes from the bible, in a circular logic, to support the claims ofwait for ite bible. I went along with the premise of assuming Jesus to be real, but it really didn't help.From one chapter to the next the author fails to keep his arguments coherent. In one chapter God is hidden, then in the next a problematic scipture i [...]

    • Bob says:

      If you know anything about logical fallacies, stay away lest your head explode on page three. If not for your own sake, then for the person who gets stuck cleaning chunks of skull and gray matter from the ceiling of your bathroom.

    • Carly says:

      I somehow had the urge, on Christmas day, no less, to review this maybe as explanation for why I'm not sitting in church right now a "bah, humbug" review, I suppose. I used to identify as Christian. I read this book. I'm now agnostic. Obviously, losing faith isn't that simple, correlation doesn't imply causation, and this book may be great for some people, but I want to add my reaction because I'm concerned for anyone who reads this book while troubled about their faith may be a really, really b [...]

    • Jerry says:

      This one took me a while to finishbut it was worth it! Strobel asks some hard questions, and the people he interviews don't shy away from answering them. Even if you are already a believer, you're likely to learn some things about the Christian faith; I sure did!

    • Fangirl Musings says:

      The eight toughest questions and objections against Christianity? Answered.1. If there's a loving God, why does this pain-wracked world groan under so much suffering?2. If the miracles of God contradict science, then how can any rational person believe that they're true?3. If God really created the universe, why does the persuasive evidence of science compel so many to conclude that the unguided process of evolution accounts for life?4. If God is morally pure, how can he sanction the slaughter o [...]

    • Rhonnie says:

      I love this book. Strobel asks tough questions and makes a great case for a lot of the struggles people have with a loving God and His people. I have found that rabid atheists get angry by this book, thinking he wrote it to prove faith without a shadow of a doubt. He doesn't claim to do that and he doesn't claim the case to be closed. But he takes an open-minded look at many people's "toughest objections." It's up to the reader to make their decision, just like it's up to every soul to make it's [...]

    • Holly says:

      Extremely readable (compared to Lewis and Mere Christianity) and compelling. With chapter titles like: "Since Evil and Suffering Exist, a Loving God Cannot" "It's Offensive to Claim Jesus is the Only Way to God" " A Loving God Would Never Torture People in Hell" and moreese are all topics Lewis covers in Mere Christianity but what is different about Strobel is that he searches for answers with people specializing in certain topicsStrobel is a man with questions and seeks out the most interesting [...]

    • Steve Casey says:

      Very rational arguments presented. Chapter 2 is excellent. Chapter 3 is fascinating. Try to win this debate against the facts he and leading scholars and scientists present.

    • Kerolos Maged says:

      (مهم) اعتقد دي ادق كلمة توصف الكتاب ده الكتاب مش ادبي جميل وصياغته مش رهيبة وحتى مش كل اجاباته كانت مقنعة بشكل كافي بالنسبة لي لكن روعته في الواقع تكمن في الكام سؤال التأملي اللي في اخر كل فصل روعته باينة في رحلة التغيير الجذري لحياة للكاتب بعد قرار الايمان بيسوعروعته تتجلى [...]

    • Lynne Stringer says:

      In looking through the reviews for this book, it seems the ones who gave it a high rating are Christians, and the ones who gave it a low rating are not Christians.No prizes for guessing which side I'm on!Let me just say at the outset that no book of this type is ever going to be exhaustive. Expecting any of Strobel's books to cover every point of contention is unrealistic. Imagine how big it would be if it did that! Also, it is called The Case FOR Faith, not the case against it, so of course th [...]

    • Rebecca L. Snowe says:

      I really wanted to give this book a five star rating, it was extremely engaging and thought-provoking for about the first half. But then it just got boring and some of the arguments I couldn't agree with. Overall it was a good read and very thought-provoking but still since I didn't read all of it (I found myself skimming) because it was boring a lot I must give it three stars.

    • Michael says:

      This book was loaned to me by a friend, at a time of my life when I was doubting my faith in God, and seeking a house of worship that didn't exclude me for who I am. This book reaffirmed my faith in God, and led me to read more and more and more books relating to faith, which I continue to read today.

    • Kris says:

      Some good points, but not as good as The Case for Christ. I expected more. This one felt more scattered, vague, and shallow at times, when compared to Strobel's first book. It's not as airtight. Read his first one, and leave this behind.

    • Kim says:

      Very evocative book! Many perspectives (life experiences and logical debate) bring one to the case for Faith just goes to show, there is not only one road to faith!

    • John says:

      This is a very interesting book, though I would certainly agree with those who say it's misleadingly advertised. As a former journalist, lawyer, and devout atheist, author Lee Strobel makes much of his unique qualifications for compiling this work; however, he lets the reader down on every count. As a piece of journalism, the book is a joke. Strobel knows from the outset what kind of answers he is looking for, and he chooses beforehand the kind of experts who will best support the conclusion he [...]

    • Megan says:

      I give this four starsbut I am already a Christian. I do feel it answered some of my questions and doubts, but I have no idea how an atheist would take to it. Obviously it's meant to bring people to God and since I have the advantage of already "knowing" God, I can't confidently give it 5 stars. I would be curious to know what further holes, if any, an atheist would poke into the case.Same goes for the science section. To me, it made sense. But I am quite limited in my knowledge of science. It's [...]

    • Deb says:

      as in his other books, strobel tackles some of the tough objections to the christian religion--this time objections that would lead to a lack of faith. these include the problems of human suffering and human evolution. strobel does this by talking to people, he interviews christian authorities on these matters and then shares his refections. it might not convince anyone who isn't already convinced, but it does offer a personal approach to intellectual problems which at least helps make the book [...]

    • rb4ever says:

      *2.5In a nutshell: great questions, not-so-great answers. Read, but don't only read.Lee Strobel, skeptic journalist, answers eight of the biggest stumbling blocks to Christianity by meeting with a different expert for each question. Mucho points for organization, writing, and choice of areas to address. Honestly, the latter is probably the best part about this book. It outlines some of the "hardest" questions; issues of suffering, hell, evolution, church history, etc. Christians need to know how [...]

    • M. L. Wilson says:

      This book gets absolutely no stars from me and I will explain why.I went into this book with the greatest hopes and wound up bitterly disappointed. Mr. Strobel (who claims to be an ace reporter. Hmm.) attaches far too much to the belief of Dr. Norman Geisler and fails to challenge him on the most basic biblical knowledge and church history. Most notably is an exchange between Strobel and Geisler that occurs in chapter 4. (I haven't time nor inclination to list the rest of my complaints with this [...]

    • Winston says:

      Strobel simply cannot think critically when it comes to his religion. He demonstrates this in another of his books, "The Case for Christ," which I suppose is used to draw us to Christianity over Islam, Hindiusm or Buddhism. In a nutshell, Strobel brings forth New Testament historians. Wow. Why bring people with a vested interest and a well-established opinion to talk about historical figures? But I've digressed, onto the1. Strobel interviews Peter Kreeft about the Problem of Evil/Suffering: Spec [...]

    • Patricia says:

      In _the case for faith_, Strobel attempts to tackle the top 8 criticisms or objections to forging a Christian faith. He interviews eight scholars, who each hold prestigious appointments at reputable tier 1 to 3 schools, and have authored numerous publications--though many are through Christian presses. Each scholar is meant to be the credible voice on one of the eight objections.Strobel employs a formulaic writing style, such that his chapters read rather similarly. The structure he uses: 1) beg [...]
