I saw the movie, A Case For Christ with my family last year. We loved it! While trying to disprove the newfound faith of his wife, the award-winning journalist, Lee Strobel, ends up becoming a Christian. He is now a Christian apologist and has written many books about faith.
This year, Lee Strobel coauthored the devotional, The Case For Christ, with another leading apologist for Christianity, Mark Mittelberg. I haven’t read many devotionals that help believers understand the evidence for Christianity.
This devotion will equip you to “give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.” (I Peter 3:15)
“Biblical faith is not irrational trust. It’s not a blind leap in the dark or a willful rejection of evidence in order to cling to a sentimental superstition or tradition.”
Each entry draws from the facts of Scripture as well as science, history, philosophy, archaeology, and experience. Each of the 180 devotions begins with a short Bible passage, followed by an argument that challenges Christianity.
Strobel and Mittelberg provide solid answers to skeptic’s questions based on logic and evidence.
“We wanted to compose these daily devotionals in a way that will not only reinforce the faith of Christians but also make the evidence for the Christian faith accessible to spiritually curious readers—including students—who are interested in better assessing the case for biblical faith.”
One of my favorite devotions explained how gravity shows God’s power and divine nature. If the universe was positioned just an inch differently, human life couldn’t exist.
“Of all the possible settings on the dial, from one side of the universe to the other, it happens to be situated in the exact right fraction of an inch to make our universe capable of sustaining life.”
These thought-provoking devotions will help solidify your understanding of why you believe what you believe.
I received a free copy from Booklook Bloggers in exchange for my honest review.
Valerie, my mother and sisters went to see that movie last year. They enjoyed it. Lee’s story is an excellent example of The transforming power of God’s Word. I hope you are doing well and had a terrific Thanksgiving. Have a fantastic weekend and may God continue to bless you and yours this holiday season.
Hi Horace, The movie was great! I like this devotional as well because it helps me understand the evidence for Christianity.
