Lee Strobel's previous book The Case for Christ described his two-year investigation of the historical evidence that pointed him, an atheist at the time, toward the verdict that God really exists and that Jesus actually is his unique son. Strobel, an investigative reporter, went to the leading scholars and authorities on biblical research and drilled them with facts and questions concerning eyewitness evidence, corroborating evidence, documentary evidence, scientific evidence, psychological evidence, and other historical proof. His conclusion: Jesus really is God's one and only son. (There will be a short appendix in the back of The Case for Faith which summarizes the author's findings in The Case for Christ.)
But what about other nettlesome issues and questions from the heart that hinder the approach to God of a skeptic, the approach to God even of one already convinced of the hard evidences like Strobel -- whose minds refuse to fully believe until their souls are fully convinced? Issues like: What about the horrors in this world that seem to say a loving God doesn't exist? What about hell and unanswered prayers? What about evil -- where does it come from if a good God oversees the world? If God is responsible for the church why has it been hypocritical and brutal through the ages? If God is moral then what about the slaughter of children in the Old Testament that he condones?
Like other skeptics, Strobel determined he needed answers to persuade his intellect and convince his soul before he would be satisfied. In the same way that he investigated and sought out the answers for the evidences for Jesus in his first book, Strobel's search for satisfying answers for this book took himfrom coast to coast, from lofty classrooms of Ivy League philosophers to the seedy hole-in-the-wall offices of ministries to street kids, from brilliant and degree-laden theologians to the private anguish of hurting people who know pain and suffering firsthand. Strobel once again makes the journey to determine whether the issues of the skeptics and doubts of the heart destroy the solid reasons he had found for Christianity. Or confirm it.
