Lee Strobel was a journalist and an atheist for a long time. Now, he’s a priest with a series of “The Case for…” books. They are inspired by his own transformational story, his journey from atheism to Christianity.
“The Case for a Creator explored the scientific evidence for God;
The Case for Christ investigated the historical evidence for Jesus;
The Case for Faith responded to eight major objections about Christianity;
The Case for The Real Jesus refuted the current challenges to the Bible and Christ …
Now, in The Case for Grace, Lee Strobel crafts a compelling and highly personal experiential case for God, focusing on God’s transforming work in the lives of men and women today.”
After two long years diving deep into the theology, journalist Lee Strobel feels he has discovered the truth about Jesus. He met with The Blaze to talk about his story and his new book. He explained how in 1981, he began his mission, questioning where science and history point, and whether Jesus Christ was a reality. He says that what really would prove it to him was the resurrection: “If Jesus claimed to be son of God, and then rose from the dead, that’s pretty good evidence he’s telling the truth.”
The Case for… Lee Strobel
Lee Strobel writes the book from a journalistic perspective, packed with true stories and interviews. Throughout the book, he tells the readers of his story: how Christianity transformed him through the Christian message. The book has a B rating by Belief Net’s Bible Resource Spotlight. They call the book a “warm, insightful, personal glimpse at transforming power of God’s grace in a person’s life.” Included with his redemptive story are other redeeming stories told by other “grace-addicts,” including a young, teenage drug addict in Texas and a homeless felon living in Las Vegas.

One reviewer feels the book was well-written and thought provoking. They shared some of the inner details of the story, such as how well Strobel demonstrates that “Christianity can make bad men much better.” Lee Strobel tells a no-holds barred detailed story of how accepting grace has completely changed his life, the affect it has had on his family and the inspiration it has given him to write.
