5.0 out of 5 stars A Really helpful and informative book
This book gives the lie to the statement Science has disproved Christianity. In fact it would appear that new scientific research supports many of the tenets of faith.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lone voice of dissent, from what I can tell
Am I the only one bothered by the fact that the 'fair and balanced' approach Strobel insists he will take in this investigation is anything but? It doesn't seem terribly objective to me to devote a chapter each to experts who go about basically all making the same 'argument from ignorance', then not give the same opportunity to those on the other side of the debate...

5.0 out of 5 stars Science writ large!, 17 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Case for a Creator: A Journalist Investigates Scientific Evidence That Points Toward God (Paperback)
Strobel's book is most readable and non technical. Yet it points out the important fact that science is showing the design in living systems, something that is acknowledged by many scientists.

Yet this is being rejected on principle by many other scientists . In the UK the government has refused to allow the evidence for intelligent design to be taught in schools on the grounds that evolution is understood and intelligent design isn't!

5.0 out of 5 stars A good book to have and to lend to open minded people, 15 Nov 2013

This review is from: The Case for a Creator: A Journalist Investigates Scientific Evidence That Points Toward God (Paperback)
This is a brilliant book written by a journalist so It is engaging and easy to read although it has a lot of scientific stuff in it. He had turned away from faith in God thinking believing that science had disproved religion but decided to investigate it and probably write a book to put forward that thesis. He talked to a great number of eminent scientists and came to a different conclusion.

I believe this book is good and shares a very good argument for the Creation story as opposed to evolution.

This review is from: The Case for a Creator: A Journalist Investigates Scientific Evidence That Points Toward God (Paperback)
This a book for all Christians who have difficulty countering the aetheist arguments that science has rendered religion meaningless. Lee Strobel examines the evidence in a masterly fashion, interviewing a number of experts with impecable academic credentials, and concludes that the credibility of religion is enhanced rather than diminished by the existing stste of scientific knowledge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thought-provoking and Thoroughly Enlightening, 26 Jan 2006
By 
Irish Critic (Leopardstown, Republic of Ireland) - See all my reviews
Ever since Darwin published "Origin of the Species" in 1859 creation apologists have been placing the 'burden of proof' on evolutionists while themselves taking a 'step of faith' in believing the creation story. In other words, creationists have assented to intelligent design by mere faith. Meanwhile they've challenged the Darwinists to scientifically demonstrate that we macro-evolved from slime and/or share a common ancestor with apes (which, of course, nobody has been able to do in the intervening century-and-a-half).
This book's approach is refreshingly original. Curiously, its author turns the debate on its head by placing the entire burden of proof upon the creationists! In other words, it's not enough merely to dismiss Darwin's theory because it's never been proven and then arbitrarily accept a creation account from the Book of Genesis. Instead you must interview numerous expert scientists from various disciplines (eg. microbiology, cosmology, astrophysics, etc.) and challenge them to make a credible and evidence-based argument for intelligent design in light of recent scientific discovery. Because the author worked for a newspaper and was still an atheist when much of his initial research was conducted, the style is that of a sceptical reporter and includes some staggeringly insightful interviews (the only flaw is that non-American listeners may find Strobel’s broad vowel sounds a tad irritating).
But if you're even vaguely interested in the origins of life & the universe, then completely rule-out engaging in any more debate on the subject before listening to this book.

I would recommend this to anyone who genuinely wants to investigate life for themselves. Don't just believe what you are told. Find out for yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars A case for the divine, 14 May 2013
Excellent well developed thoughts and answers to old worn out, skeptical and bigoted hypotheses. The reasoning of Mr. Strobel is delightfully refreshing and fascinating in his approach to reveal the timeless truth and reality of an eternal divine being.
