Join investigative journalist and bestselling author Lee Strobel as he embarks on his life-changing quest to solve the riddle of grace. Along the way, you'll find the undeniable evidence of grace in the true stories of racists, addicts, and even murderers who have found new hope and purpose--all through the redemptive power of God's amazing grace.
In The Case for Grace, Lee offers an accessible explanation of the theology of God's grace, shown through the incredible, dramatic, can't-put-it-down stories of people whose lives were changed by the gift of grace--true accounts of people whose transformation and renewal are so radical that they seem to be best explained as the work of a gracious God.
Lee draws upon his own journey from atheism to Christianity to explore the depth and breadth of God's redeeming love for spiritually wayward people, traveling thousands of miles to capture the inspiring stories of everyday people whose values have been radically changed and who have discovered the "how" and "why" behind God's amazing grace.
Each story that Strobel shares in The Case for Grace contributes a piece to the puzzle of grace, showing us:
How grace goes beyond forgiveness to acceptance and even adoption by GodHow it restores hope when none is left; how it extends to the most heinous circumstancesHow it allows us to forgive those who caused our most intimate wounds--and even to forgive ourselves
Through it all, you will be encouraged as you see how God's grace can revolutionize your life--starting today.
Everyone has a story, and bestselling author Strobel (The Case for Christ) uses his skills as a journalist to describe individual quests for grace as well as his own personal journey. Strobel wrote the previous books in his The Case For series as an evangelical apologist, but this time he takes the role of seeker of grace. He introduces seven people: an abused orphan in South Korea who came to understand God's grace through her adoptive father's love; a drug-addicted teenager who found grace by helping the downtrodden in Las Vegas; a pastor who experienced grace in forgiveness; an evangelist's prodigal son whose life is changed by repentance and its grace; a professor who researched his way from agnosticism to belief; a homeless man who found grace through a singular caring hug he received; and a survivor of the Cambodian genocide who came to know grace by forgiving the person who tortured and killed his family. Strobel's own story involves a cold-hearted father, a confused young man, and the grace found in the author's own transformation. This eloquent and honest book should appeal to those who have found grace, as well as those seeking it.
