Good. Connecting readers with great books since 1972. Used books may not include companion materials, some shelf wear, may contain highlighting/notes, and may not include cd-rom or access codes. Customer service is our top priority!
I highly recommend this book. There may be a problem though for people who may have no background in philosophy. The only good thing is that the writer tries as much as possible to put his arguments into simple language.

A different type of reading for me personally
Really in-dept writing and knowledge. Facts and tidbits throughout the book make this very interesting and a much deeper type of reading level. I enjoyed it but required actual peace in order to comprehend it better. I haven't yet finished it but its longer that my usual choices in books. Gives you a feeling of walking beside the writer and witnessing things with him. Enjoyable and made me ponder alot deeper and longer than normal.

Challenging to the Skeptic/Helpful to the Faithful
A great read. Every college student should read this book and consider the matter objectively before burying their head in the sand of evolution and ascribing to all of its dogmas. The scientific community has become as closed minded to threats against their dogma as dark ages Roman Catholicism was. This book is a refreshing contemplation of free thought.

TECHNICAL & THOROUGH
Scientific evidence from every field of the scientific arena of the existence of a pre-existing creator as well as an exposure of the false evidence that supports Evolution.

A must for serious seekers
Anyone who is serious about seeking the truth will appreciate the thoroughness of the author. He doesn't just right opinion, he seeks information from the experts and plays devils advocate throughout.
Publishers Weekly, 2004-02-23 Strobel, whose apologetics titles The Case for Christ and The Case for Faith have enjoyed strong popularity among evangelicals, approaches creation/evolution issues in the same simple and energetic style. The format will be familiar to readers of previous Case books: Strobel visits with scholars and researchers and works each interview into a topical outline. Although Strobel does not interview any "hostile" witnesses, he exposes readers to the work of some major origins researchers (including Jonathan Wells, Stephen Meyer and Michael Behe) and theistic philosophers (including William Lane Craig and J. P. Moreland). Strobel claims no expertise in science or metaphysics, but as an interviewer he makes this an asset, prodding his sources to translate jargon and provide illustrations for their arguments. At times, the interview format loses momentum as seams begin to show between interview recordings, rewrites, research notes and details imported from his subjects' CVs (here, Strobel's efforts at buffing his subjects' smart-guy credentials can become a little too intense). The most curious feature of the book-not uncommon in the origins literature but unusual in a work of Christian apologetics-is that biblical narratives and images of creation, and the significance of creation for Christian theology, receive such brief mention. Still, this solid introduction to the most important topics in origins debates is highly accessible and packs a good argumentative punch. (Apr.) Forecast: Strobel's books The Case for Christ and The Case for Faith won Gold Medallion awards and sold into the seven figures. This month, also watch for his The Case for Easter to argue for the historical authenticity of the Resurrection (Feb.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
