Book Review-The Case for Grace-Student Edition by Lee Strobel

The Case for Grace
Student Edition
By:  Lee Strobel with Jane Vogel
Publisher: Zondervan

From the Back of the Book:

…God’s transforming work in 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 stories from those whose lives have been radically changed after discovering the “how” and “why” behind God’s amazing grace….

My Review:
This is a non-fiction book written for teens to show them how important grace is.  Mr. Stobel tells stories of himself and others who have been blessed by God’s loving grace.  He begins this book with himself and his relationship with his own father,  Stephanie, who is orphaned and is told she is worthless from a very young age, then Jud, the addict, Craig, the good-guy, who didn’t feel he needs grace, the Nazi war criminals and Comrade Duch of the Khmer Rouge, to Cody Huff, a street person and etc.  Mr. Strobel shows through these stories, it doesn’t matter your status in life or the sin you have committed, there is nothing so great that God will not forgive if your repentance is honest.  This forgiveness is God’s loving grace.  The events and scriptures in this book show that grace cannot be purchased, it is a gift freely given by God through heart-felt honest repentance.

This would be a wonderful book to share as a devotional with your teen children. 

Disclosure: I was given a copy of this Book by the publisher, Zondervan , Z Blog Squad for an honest review.   I was not required to write a favorable review nor was I compensated for my review. The opinions in this review are my own.
