About the book
Is Faith Possible in Today’s World? It’s not easy to believe in Christianity when there is pain all around you and issues that defy easy explanation. Unless there are answers to the questions you face. Lee Strobel knows how important it is to find answers that ring true. With his background as an award-winning journalist, asking tough questions has been his business. And while his search for the truth convinced Lee that Jesus is real, it also confronted him with some particularly knotty, gut-level questions about Christianity you’ve likely asked as well: Why is there suffering? Doesn’t science disprove miracles? What about hell---and the millions who’ve never heard of Jesus? Is God unjust? They’re the kinds of conundrums that can block---and have blocked---people’s faith. But those questions don’t have to block yours. Join Lee in a fascinating journey of discovery. You’ll gain powerful insights that will reshape your understanding of the Bible. And you’ll read true stories about people whose experiences demonstrate that faith in Jesus not only makes excellent sense, it makes a life-changing difference as well.
This Student Edition of The Case for Faith will give the most important notions found in the original edition to your teenager in order to make him/her realize that faith is possible in our world today. Lee Strobel has taken the time to present the important questions of: Why is there suffering?, Doesn’t science disprove miracles?, What about hell – and the millions who’ve never heard of Jesus, as well as Is God unjust? – in a format that any student of middle and high school can read.
Not only will you see how Strobel himself have decided to find the answers of his own questions but you will read amazing testimonies from a friend of his as well as Ravi Zacharias. I believe strongly that learning other people testimonies are very powerful when you discover their own struggles.
I have read this book in 2 days – mind you I am a fast reader. The main reason why I requested this title is because I want my 8th grader (and eventually his siblings as well) to go through this book during the school year. This little book will answer questions he might have about his own faith that he has not formulated to us. It will also give him a solid base on how to speak with people who can disagree with his own faith. While reading this book, I have gained new insights that have deepened my own faith (and I want to read the full book!).
If your teen is struggling with his/her faith, this little book will provide the guidance in reshaping their understanding of the Bible. I would suggest that the parent read the book as well in order to talk about it with your child if he/she wants to discuss what has been said in a specific chapter of the book.
The Case for Faith Student Edition is available for purchase at your favourite bookstore, even amazon.ca and amazon.com.
It is also available on Kindle.
