I much admit upfront that I have technically never “read” this book. You see, I was in a class in college called “Creation Science” and was given an assignment to read this book, but unfortunately ran out of time. At the last minute, I discovered that this book (as well as Lee Strobel’s other two best-selling titles The Case for Christ and The Case for Faith) were turned into documentaries that not only provided details of the books but actually re-interviewed the experts that Strobel did. Given the time crunch, I chose to use to documentary to guide me through the process of writing my 2000-word report. While this plan at first seemed like it was just a short cut, I actually found it be helpful in allowing me to understand and process the material, especially since it was on what can become a complex topic. I also found it interesting that Strobel completed a large investigative journey that gave him enough evidence to produce two books. As much as I love The Case for Christ, I believe that The Case for a Creator is just a significant and should be read by anyone wanting to learning about the validity of intelligent design ~ Bethel
In his book, Case for a Creator, Lee Strobel walks his audience through his own journey of initially embracing Darwinism in his youth, only to be led on an investigative journey that would led him to creationism and Christianity. What initially prompted him toward this journey was when his wife Leslie became a Christian early in their marriage. While expecting her to more incompetent and hypocritical, she actually became an overall better person. So he decided he needed to prove both Christianity and creationism false by interviewing experts in their fields. While he expected to find evidence to prove Darwinism true, he found the exact opposite. He eventually discovered that many pieces of evidence that he convinced him of Darwinism in his youth were inaccurate and bias. Through his accounts of his journey and interviews with many experts, not only did Strobel become a Christian himself, but he also discovered that faith and science can go hand in hand.
This book is great at simplifying terms and concepts that are sometimes difficult to understand. This book is a perfect companion to Case for Christ and one that I highly recommend. Get your copy today!
Lion's Eyes Reviews is a blog dedicated to reviews of Christian books, most of which are non-fiction, but may also occasionally review movies and musicals. It will also feature the work Bethel does to help launch and promote the works of Christian authors.
The name is derived from one of Bethel's favorite books, Through the Eyes of a Lion by Levi Lusko. Through these reviews, Bethel hope to give Christians the tools they need to look at the world "through the eyes of a lion" so they can find the courage to "run toward the roar".
