About "The Case For a Creator"
A Journalist Investigates Scientific Evidence That Points Toward God 'My road to atheism was paved by science...but, ironically, so was my later journey to God.'---Lee Strobel 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 reexamines the theories that once led him away from God. Through his compelling and highly readable 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. Mass market edition available in packs of six.

Customer Reviews For "The Case For a Creator"Write Your Own Review
I'm not sure why this one was marked down, but I got it for very cheap and it's just like the original (2004), albeit slightly cheaper paper. The cost format made it perfect to give away along with bibles when sharing the gospel. Questions are sure to abound and opportunities to engage people both intellectually and with the love of God will present themselves.
This DVD is presented in an engaging and captivating manner. The viewer is lead on a journey with Lee Stobel from doubt about the possibility of a creator through such evidence from reliable sources that an open minded viewer has to wrestle with the distinct possibility that the universe was actually created. The DVD is made up of interviews, images and Lee speaking directly to the audience which keeps the viewers interest. Lee is not afraid to ask the really hard questions (indeed he was genuinely seeking when he first asked them), he does not skirt around the issues. Presented in an adventurous tone and in clear sections that also follow on one to another it is great viewing for believers and unbelievers alike.
Another fantastic book by Lee Strobel, this time looking at the scientific evidence for a Creator. You will be amazed at some of the evidence presented. Very scientific, more aimed at those with some kind of scientific understanding but well explained and set out. A must for anyone wanting a good discussion of the origins of the universe. 5 stars.
