NO SIEMPRE ES FÁCIL ENCONTRAR FE. ES DIFÍCIL AUN PARA
QUIENES LA DESEAN CON DESESPERACIÓN
Algunas personas sienten hambre espiritual; sin embargo, algo les impide satisfacerla. Las objeciones las atormentan. Las dudas se burlan de ellas. Sus corazones quieren volar hacia Dios, pero su inteligencia las mantiene en tierra firme.
Lee Strobel empezó como un ateo, completamente convencido de que Dios no creó a las personas, sino que estas lo crearon a él en un esfuerzo por explicar lo desconocido y atenuar su temor a la muerte. En El caso de Cristo, Strobel describió su estudio de casi dos años de evidencia histórica que lo condujo al veredicto de que Dios en verdad existe y que Jesús es su único Hijo. No obstante, todavía luchaba con objeciones agobiantes, preocupaciones por asuntos llenos de emoción que dañaban a muchos que de otra manera abrazarían la fe. No se trataba de simples problemas teóricos, históricos o intelectuales. Las cuestiones que molestaban a Strobel estaban llenas de impacto emocional. Existen los tipos de enigmas que pueden detener, y lo hacen, a las personas en su camino cuando consideran convertirse en cristianos. En El caso de la fe, Lee Strobel sondea las preguntas más espinosas, a las que llama >, que incluyen:
• Si hay un Dios amoroso, ¿por qué gime este mundo bajo tanto sufrimiento y maldad?
• Si en verdad Dios creó el universo, ¿por qué la ciencia obliga a tantos a concluir que la evolución responde por la vida?
• Si Dios es el supremo supervisor de la iglesia, ¿por qué esta ha tenido tanta hipocresía y brutalidad a través de las diferentes edades?
• Si en verdad a Dios le importan las personas que creó, ¿cómo envía a tantas de ellas a una eternidad de tortura en el infierno solo porque no creyeron en las debidas cosas acerca de él?
Como experimentado periodista educado en la Facultad de Leyes de Yale, Strobel busca metódicamente los puntos a favor y hace preguntas audaces que cualquiera quisiera hacer y que le carcomen por dentro. Preguntas que construyen o destruyen la fe cristiana. Se niega a contemporizar o a dar clichés con elocuentes respuestas. Por el contrario, junta los hechos difíciles a través de entrevistas con nueve de los más prestigiosos eruditos y expertos. ¿El resultado? Respuestas sólidas, convincentes, fascinantes y sabias a sus preguntas más profundas. El caso de la fe le encaminará hacia una fe renovada y restaurada… o hacia su descubrimiento.

What an incredible unworthy follow up to The Case for Christ. The problem is, of course, that Strobel is not a great theologian. His approach to doctrine is very man-focused rather than Christ-focused.Now, when you are investigating the historical evidence to the Bible, the details of your theology don't matter all that much. Because of that, The Case for Christ is a great work in apologetics. But that is not at all the approach of this work. Instead of looking at actual hard evidence, Strobel instead turns to philosophy to answer tough questions like, "If God is good, then why is there evil in the world."Fair question, but Strobel, being very pragmatic and man-focused, turns to like-minded philosophers for his answers. So instead of biblically-based responses (even if we don't want to hear them), we have a bunch of people trying to twist their brains to defend God's actions in history. We have one philosopher trying to claim that hell exists because it is less dehumanizing than simple annihilation (p. 253), that all children who die go to heaven because they are not old enough to know better (p. 169), and that human free will is the driving force in the universe (throughout).The problem, of course, is having a wrong understanding of God in the first place. When you are Strobel, and you come to this book with the belief that God is helpless against free will, then you have a God who either cannot or will not help. That is not the God of the Bible. The true God is sovereign over all things. He is moving the tides of history by His will. He allows evil for a time, but He moves all thing for His glory and for the good of His children. He is guiding this world to a place that we cannot even imagine right now, and yet every moment will be seen in the end as purposeful and for the good. He is merciful to allow evil for a time, for we are sinful, and if He were to avenge evil fully in this moment, then He would destroy us as well. But in mercy He has given us time, for He is long suffering. He has given us this very day that we might repent and believe in Him and be saved.The book is not all bad. Ravi Zacharias has a very fine interview. But on the whole, this is an exercise in bad philosophy trying to remake God in our own image instead of ourselves being conformed to the image of Jesus. I'll stick with Strobel's more historic-based books in the future.more
Strobel does it once again in this amazing book defending the Christian faith!!more
A bit of preaching to the choir, a bit of dissing other religions. Not much to see here.more
A simplified theology book with pat answers that aren't really answers at all.more
As in his other books, Strobel tackles some of the tough objections to the Christian religion--this time objections that would lead to a lack of faith. These include the problems of human suffering and human evolution. Strobel does this by talking to people, he interviews Christian authorities on these matters and then shares his refections. It might not convince anyone who isn't already convinced, but it does offer a personal approach to intellectual problems which at least helps make the book more intersting to read. And I think it does show that to be a Christian you don't have to check your brain at the door.more
Have you got questions about Christianity? Former athiest attempts to break down those barriers.more
Refer to my thoughts concerning Case for Christ.more
He's actually willing to take on some tough questions. That's to his credit. However ... he has no tough answers to go along with them. In the end, it always seems to come down to personal convictions, inner transformations, and ineffable experiences of being "sure."more
Good try at convincing us that there is a God and his son is Jesus, but every time a hard question is asked, the straw-men come dancing in and fail to impress me.more
