Publisher's Summary

During his academic years, Lee Strobel became convinced that God was outmoded, a belief that colored his ensuing career as an award-winning journalist at the Chicago Tribune. Science had made the idea of a Creator irrelevant, or so Strobel thought. But today science is pointing in a different direction. In recent years, a diverse and impressive body of research has increasingly supported the conclusion that the universe was intelligently designed. At the same time, Darwinism has faltered in the face of concrete facts and hard reason.
Has science discovered God? At the very least, it's giving faith an immense boost as new findings emerge about the incredible complexity of our universe. Join Strobel as he re-examines the theories that once led him away from God. Through his compelling account, you'll encounter the mind-stretching discoveries from cosmology, cellular biology, DNA research, astronomy, physics, and human consciousness that present astonishing evidence in The Case for a Creator.

Excellent Summary of Apologetics

Here is a book by one of my favorite authors who does his customary, excellent job presenting the facts in support of the Biblical account of creation. He does not fall into the trap of "young Earth" creationism, but acknowledges that God cared enough to create a world that was perfect for human life, even though it took Him billions of years to prepare stars with just the right materials to sustain carbon-based life forms (i.e. all the living creatures including us). There are books that treat this subject in more depth, but Lee Strobel's style of presentation makes it accessible even to the open-minded agnostic. I would highly recommend it.

Case closed...or opened?

Don't hesitate to purchase this book. Strobel's questions & answers, interviews and overall approach is top shelf. The concepts/ideas dealt with in this book are a great index and introduction to many of the established sciences, pointing towards identifying a transcendent creator as the causal agent for humanity. What could be more applicable to your life than coming to know who God is? If you have struggled with faith issues based on evolution, cosmology, biology, chemistry, philosophy, etc...this book is worth the read. I can think of no greater crime to the "self" than to not explore the information that is available to us today in favor of a personal transcendent creator. Reading this book is a great start on a journey towards learning who we are and how God has finely crafted our universe for the benefit of humanity.
