Today is Good Friday, and I find it apt to write this review for this book. Lee Strobel has added one more book to his “The Case for …” series. This time, he examines the case of how people’s lives has changed due to the grace God has for them.
Similar to the books within this series, Strobel interviews different individuals, hears what they have to say. and presents their side of the story to the readers. However, contrary to his previous books, Strobel does not interview the “experts” of grace. Indeed, one will not be able to find any of such “experts” in grace. And so Strobel has instead. very helpful presented stories of people with varying backgrounds and upbringing. This makes the book accessible to everyone, since you might just identify yourself with one of the people interviewed within the book!
Each of these stories centred around how grace has changed them. All of them reads exactly like testimonies given by different individuals. They were not too detailed to bore the readers with unnecessary details, neither were they too brief to make it sound too generic.
I have found Strobel’s writing to be extremely readable and engaging, and this book has certainly not been a disappointment. I have been encouraged by what I have read within this book and has come away thankful to God for what I have read. I especially like his chapters on “The Professor”, “The Prodigal” and “Empty Hands”.
If you would like to have a book that is light reading, and has not yet decided on what to read, why not read this book? I’m sure you will find the stories you have read to be uplifting. Certainly a book that can be read by a young or old christian. This can also be a book that you might want to pass to a non-christian friend if he/she is interested in what good christianity is for.
