In his #1 best-seller The Case for Christ, legally trained investigative reporter Lee Strobel examined the claims of Christ, reaching the hard-won verdict that Jesus is God's unique son. But despite the compelling historical evidence that Strobel presented, many people grapple with serious concerns about faith in God. As in a court of law, they want to shout, "Objection!" They say, "If God is love, then what about all the suffering in our world?" Or, "If Jesus is the door to heaven, then what about the millions who have never heard of him?" Or, "If God cares for everyone, then why does he eternally torture some in hell?"In The Case for Faith, Strobel turns his tenacious investigative skills to the most persistent emotional objections to belief--the eight "heart" barriers to faith. The Case for Faith is for those who may be feeling attracted to Jesus but who are faced with formidable intellectual barriers 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.

Who Was Jesus? A good man? A lunatic? God? There's little question that he actually lived. But miracles? Rising from the dead? Some of the stories you hear about him sound like just that--stories. A reasonable person would never believe them, let alone the claim that he's the only way to God! But a reasonable person would also make sure that he or she understood the facts before jumping to conclusions. That's why Lee Strobel--an award-winning legal journalist with a knack for asking tough questions--decided to investigate Jesus for himself. An atheist, Strobel felt certain his findings would bring Christianity's claims about Jesus tumbling down like a house of cards. He was in for the surprise of his life. Join him as he retraces his journey from skepticism to faith. You'll consult expert testimony as you sift through the truths that history, science, psychiatry, literature, and religion reveal. Like Strobel, you'll be amazed at the evidence--how much there is, how strong it is, and what it says. The facts are in. What will your verdict be in The Case for Christ?

Has modern scholarship debunked the traditional Christ? Has the church suppressed the truth about Jesus to advance its own agenda? What if the real Jesus is far different from the atoning Savior worshipped through the centuries? In The Case for the Real Jesus, former award-winning legal editor Lee Strobel explores such hot-button questions as: • Did the church suppress ancient non-biblical documents that paint a more accurate picture of Jesus than the four Gospels? • Did the church distort the truth about Jesus by tampering with early New Testament texts? • Do new insights and explanations finally disprove the resurrection? • Have fresh arguments disqualified Jesus from being the Messiah? • Did Christianity steal its core ideas from earlier mythology? Evaluate the arguments and evidence being advanced by prominent atheists, liberal theologians, Muslim scholars, and others. Sift through expert testimony. Then reach your own verdict in The Case for the Real Jesus.

The Case for a Creator explored the scientific evidence for God; The Case for Christ investigated the historical evidence for Jesus; The Case for Faith responded to eight major objections about Christianity; The Case for The Real Jesus refuted the current challenges to the Bible and Christ … Now, in The Case for Grace, Lee Strobel crafts a compelling and highly personal experiential case for God, focusing on God’s transforming work in the lives of men and women today. Writing with unusual candor, Lee draws upon his own journey from atheism to Christianity to explore the depth and breadth of God’s redeeming love for spiritually wayward people. He travels thousands of miles to capture the inspiring stories of everyday people whose values have been radically changed and who have discovered the “how” and “why” behind God’s amazing grace. You’ll encounter racists, addicts, and even murderers who have found new hope and purpose. You’ll meet once-bitter people who have received God’s power to forgive those who have harmed them—and, equally amazing, people mired in guilt who have discovered that they can even forgive themselves. Through it all, you will be encouraged as you see how God’s grace can revolutionize your eternity and relationships… starting today.

Kann Gott auch völlig aus der Bahn geratene Menschen ändern? Ja, er kann. Lee Strobel ist Menschen aus allen Teilen der Erde begegnet, deren Leben von Gott umgekrempelt wurde: Einem obdachlosen Junkie, der jetzt als Pastor arbeitet. Einem rebellischen Teenager, der ein selbstloser Diener Gottes wurde. Auch persönlich hat Lee Strobel erlebt, was Gnade in seinem Leben bewirkt hat. Er kommt zu dem Schluss: Gnade ist mehr als Vergebung und Annahme bei Gott. Sie schenkt Hoffnung, wenn es eigentlich keine Hoffnung mehr gibt. Sie klärt Situationen, die eigentlich verloren scheinen. Sie ermöglicht uns, denjenigen zu vergeben, die uns am meisten verletzt haben - und sogar uns selbst.

S. Lewis, Alvin Plantinga, William Lane Craig, Richard Swinburne, and Pope Benedict XVI. Over fifty entries address key issues in the history of Christian apologetics. Introductions provide general overviews and guides to the topical arrangements of these issues. Photographs of the major apologists enliven the work and concise section headings clearly organize the material. Discussion questions, annotated reading lists, a bibliography, and author and subject indexes contribute to the suitability of this anthology as a textbook or supplemental reader.

In a small town, it is a gossip inducing sight: In a pew sits a mother with her two children, alone. "Is that lady divorced?" "The father is that blond guy who worked at the grocery store." "I can't believe it! He seemed like such a nice guy. Why isn't he in church with his family?" "He said he is no longer a Christian." "No longer a Christian? Got into drugs?" "I don't know. Didn't seem like a drunk. He said something about problems with the Bible, but DUH! Maybe there's another woman." "Well, he's sure not a good role-model for his kids." The author hasn't heard that conversation, and actually probably never would in his lovely kindhearted small town. But he feels it. And he has had to deal with the question "Why aren't you in church with your family?" When verbal explanations failed, he began this written defense that even Joe Sixpack can understand. The implications of the evangelical fundamentalist worldview initiated his skepticism, but it was the Bible that finally drove him from his born-again roots. They don't put these scriptures in sermons, and being born-again may turn out to be something completely different. One bright Sunday at the age of 18, the author's life took an unexpected turn. A book was reviewed in the Sunday school class of his small-town Presbyterian church: Hal Lindsey's Late Great Planet Earth. Suddenly everything was different. The world was coming to an end; Jesus was coming back. He dropped a scholarship in chemical engineering at the University of Tulsa and transferred to Oral Roberts University. After a theology degree, he went on for geology degrees at the state universities of Oklahoma and Colorado with the goal of getting involved in evolution/creation research and the search for Noah's Ark. But nine years after his entrance into the world of fundamentalist evangelical Christianity, he had to walk out. His disgust with the evangelical worldview, combined with a realization of what the Bible actually contained drove him away. Eighteen years after his exit, his children and then his wife drifted into that same fundamentalist world, which he metaphorically describes as Godlyland. He could not accompany them. Just hearing about the rides in there brought back memories of mental nausea. Inquiries regarding why he wasn't in church with his family reopened old wounds and motivated this description of his own trip to Godlyland, his reasons for leaving, and his recently discovered evidence for eternal life, from an entirely different direction.

"Im Himmel war ich zu Hause; dort gehörte ich hin. An diesem Ort wollte ich sein, mehr als ich jemals irgendwo auf der Erde hatte sein wollen. Die Zeit war nicht mehr, und ich lebte einfach in der Gegenwart. Alle Sorgen, Ängste und Bedenken waren verschwunden. Ich war völlig bedürfnislos und fühlte mich vollkommen glücklich."
