"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 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.

Whether you identify yourself as an atheist, an agnostic, or a Christian, you must listen to this book: The Case for a Creator: A Journalist Investigates Scientific Evidence That Points Toward God. Lee Strobel embarks on a journey to follow the evidence wherever it leads. He interviews the top scientists and researchers in each field and explains complicated scientific concepts in easy to understand language. Strobel’s flowing narrative throughout the book keeps you engaged. I found this book to be easy to listen to, but also intellectually stimulating. It was read by the author, which for me brought the words to life. It was like I was sitting in on each interview. I never knew there was so much evidence for creation by intelligent design. Once you listen to this book, you’ll just want to share it with someone!

WOW! I really followed his information, even some of the more scientific made sense the way Lee explained it. He definitely makes a terrific Case for a Creator. Well read. Highly recommended for anyone questioning the existence of the Creator, or for one alerady sure of His existence.

Lee Strobel does an amazing job of bringing the best secular arguments to the leading minds in each and every topic on the 'Science' of today. From biology to cosmology, some of the most educated minds demonstrate that Science proves the Creator far more today than at any time in history. You will be astounded by the case, and you'll be checking everything 'scientists' tell you about facts vs. theories vs. out-right lies.

Excellent - but overwhelming

If you are a Christian, this book will 1) solidify your faith in the biblical truth of creation and 2) give you TONS of scientific arguments FOR a creator and against the theory of evolution. If you are an atheist, I challenge you to read/listen to this book with an open mind. It is very long and it is PACKED full of information. Its very overwhelming.

Great Research

Excellent reasearch, as with Strobel's other books. He includes lots of information. The technical information sometimes requires you to listen twice. Very informative.

This was very Informative. It was not really approached from a religious stand point. Make great points and pokes wholes in theory's. I was impressed with research that had to go into it. I listened to it twice.

The book is well written and educational. I appreciate the effort that the author went to in order to "flesh-out" the research and the facts from many different experts from many different fields of study. As an educator in the Life Sciences I found this book to be very useful in my classroom as well as in my personal life.
