Recent findings from the fields of astronomy, cosmology, biology, and biochemistry that provide convincing evidence for God Like many people, Lee Strobel traces his atheism to high school when he was taught that Darwinism explained the origin and development of life. He assumed there was no room for God in a modern, scientific mind. But now Strobel has discovered that 'the emperor of evolution has no clothes!' As in his first two books---both multi-million sellers---The Case for Christ and The Case for Faith, Strobel assumes the role of skeptic in The Case for a Creator and uses a narrative technique to investigate the latest scientific findings concerning creation. What he has found is that there has never been a time in history when the hard evidence of science was more confirmatory of belief in God than it is today. Instead of science and religion being at odds, many scientists are now driven to faith by their very work. 'It is the atheist who has to maintain, by faith, despite all the evidence to the contrary, that the universe did not have a beginning a finite time ago.' The Case for a Creator provides an ironclad apologetic affirming the Christian belief in God as Creator. Yet it is written in an open, accessible style that invites skeptics and seekers to take another look at the evidence for God. This title is also available as unabridged Audio Pages CD.

Review:

Are Christianity and science incompatible? If there is a God, is he only an impersonal starter force? An introductory high school biology class first propelled Lee Strobel toward a life of atheism. God and science, he reasoned, were mutually exclusive. When the former legal editor of the Chicago Tribune converted to Christianity, he decided to investigate the science he had once accepted as truth. Did science point toward or away from God? As Strobel interviews a variety of scientists on everything from debunking evolutionary icons to the implications of the Big Bang to the existence of the human soul, he builds his case: scientific evidence points toward Intelligent Design.

Although the discussion often veers into the academic, Strobel works hard to make it accessible to those without scientific training. Throughout the book, he salts interview transcript information with interesting personal stories of his own spiritual and scientific quest for knowledge, as well as sometimes over-detailed descriptions of the actual interviews (right down to the type of beverages consumed). Each chapter contains suggestions for further reading on particular issues of science and faith.

Strobel concludes that, when correctly interpreted, science and biblical teaching support each other. He quotes physicist Paul Davies, "...science offers a surer path to God than religion." Open-minded readers will find that this book, and its questions for reflection and group study, invites conversation and investigation.--Cindy Crosby
