Is Faith Possible in Today’s World?
It’s not easy to believe in Christianity when there is pain all around you and issues that defy easy explanation. Unless there are answers to the questions you face.
Lee Strobel knows how important it is to find answers that ring true. With his background as an award-winning journalist, asking tough questions has been his business. And while his search for the truth convinced Lee that Jesus is real, it also confronted him with some particularly knotty, gut-level questions about Christianity you’ve likely asked as well: Why is there suffering? Doesn’t science disprove miracles? What about hell—and the millions who’ve never heard of Jesus? Is God unjust? They’re the kinds of conundrums that can block—and have blocked—people’s faith.
But those questions don’t have to block yours. Join Lee in a fascinating journey of discovery. You’ll gain powerful insights that will reshape your understanding of the Bible. And you’ll read true stories about people whose experiences demonstrate that faith in Jesus not only makes excellent sense, it makes a life-changing difference as well.

- Review by Paige
There’s just something about a book that, within the first few pages, the author tells you a story that resonates so deeply that you are in tears, and that’s how this book starts out for me. Granted, I was in the hospital reading this, waiting to find out whether or not my dad had a heart attack, so yes, that might have helped it along, but I feel like this book did indeed help me to keep myself centered. As I read, Lee Strobel’s words both educated and soothed me as I sat there in that (very uncomfortable) hospital chair with my mother and brother by my side and prayed.
This book not only kept me centered during that time, but it also helped me be able to answer those tough questions that life throws at you from time to time. I’ve always been very confident in my faith, and I so I was really looking forward to this journalistic style novel, and I’m so happy to have read it. I would highly recommend this to teens, it’s a really eye opening and thought provoking read that, though short, gave me a lot to think about after. (Posted on 10/26/2014)
