Book Review: The Case for Faith, Student Edition

The Case for Faith, Student Edition
By Lee Strobel
Zondervan, 2014
English, 112 pgs

Based on the bestselling Case for Faith, author Lee Strobel, along with Jane Vogel, present students with a fascinating journey, discovering insights that will reshape the way they view faith.
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 that teens have likely asked as well.

In The Case for Faith Student Edition, students will gain powerful insights that will reshape their understanding of the Bible. And they'll read true stories of people whose experiences demonstrate that faith in Jesus not only make excellent sense, but a life-changing difference.

I'm really enjoying the Strobel books. I've previously read and reviewed The Case for Christ, Student Edition. Just like that one, this book is well researched and written. Strobel is a former athiest and journalist who wanted to find reasons to discredit his wife's new faith in Christ. Instead, he met the Lord and committed his life to Him.

This one is written a little differently than the previous book. It's more like transcripts of conversations. Strobel tackles really tough questions, like suffering, hell, evolution and doubt. These are questions the kids in our church youth group are asking my husband, the pastor, so I know they're real concerns and real questions that people have about our faith.

The answers are very clear and on the right level of understanding for students. There are extra resources listed for going deeper in the study as well as an excerpt from The Case for The Real Jesus. Each of Strobel's book is noted and presented at the back as well.

I received a copy of the book from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for a review on this blog and a commercial bookselling site. No additional compensation has been received and I was not required to write a positive review.
