Review: The Case for Grace(student edition) by:Lee Strobel

The Case for Grace Student Edition: A Journalist Explores the Evidence of Transformed Lives
About the Book:
In The Case for Grace Student Edition, Lee Strobel and Jane Vogel present a compelling and highly personal experiential case for God, focusing on God’s transforming work in the lives of people today.

Writing with unusual candor, Lee draws upon his own journey from atheism to Christianity to explore the depth and breadth of God’s redeeming love, including those whose lives have been radically changed after discovering the “how” and “why” behind God’s amazing grace. You’ll encounter racists, addicts, and even murderers who have found new hope and purpose. You’ll meet once-bitter people who have learned to forgive those who have harmed them—and, equally amazing, people mired in guilt who have discovered that they can even forgive themselves.

Through it all, you will see how God’s grace can change your eternity and relationships…starting today.

My Review:
 Lee Strobel tells it like it is and I like that about him. He gives you his own personal account of his search for grace. It is a no holds barred account which will leave you turning page after page just to see how he handled each situation. We need truth tellers such as he to give us these accounts because I believe these accounts are what people cling to and these will win them for Christ.

 This being the student edition will resonate with many young people, because it gives them accounts from a teens point of view. It will hit home with them because I believe many of them believe the way the author did at the time but they must realize that many of their efforts no matter how strong willed they are may prove to be fruitless overall especially if God is not included in them. This is a very short read but a perfect gift for that young person in your life.
