This book is ok, but not as good as 'The case for Christ'
I found this book very moving with respect to Charles Templeton (Billy Graham's former pulpit partner turned agnostic). While I do believe that the questions Templeton raised against Christianity do have answers I dont think Lee Strobel got to all of them. There are some notible exceptions, such as Ravi Zacharias's interview for example. I am not saying I think it was a bad book, far from it but 'The case for Christ' was much better. Lee Strobel's heart for Charles Templeton and people like him really did come through and that made the book worth reading. I would use some of the arguments with non Christian's but I wouldnt borrow them the book.
May God Bless you!
As a highschool philosophy student, lately I've faced an increased battle between what I know through my relationship with God and what I can understand through reason. I found this book very helpful. It's discussions about topics that few mainstream Christians address showed that faith can indeed stand under criticism. While I recognize that he was out prove that Christianity was a valid standpoint (so mabye an eensy-weensy biased), he DID ask some pretty pointed questions to competent Christian philosophers and scientists. While it may not engage hardcore philosophers, I personally appreciated its appeal to the everyday, casual thinker. I was also blown away by the story of Billy Graham's friend, an evangelist turned aggressive opponent of Christianity. I thought it was an effective opening example to what uncountered doubt can do to faith (or the possibility of faith). Well, I suggest this book, especially to those who remember that we can't approach God completely by human wisdom or reasoning anyway (hehehe).
