Since the ground breaking “The Case for Christ,” Lee Strobel has been writing books about faith in his unique investigative style. These books are comfortable reassurance to believers and often real head-scratchers for unbelievers. Lee truly does make the case and his meticulous research makes his conclusions difficult to refute.
“The Case for Miracles” essentially makes the case that God is still at work in our world performing miracles on a fairly regular basis. Lee starts his research by interviewing a well-known skeptic and then proceeds to disprove all of the skeptic’s arguments by uncovering well-documented accounts of healings and other extraordinary events that simply can’t be explained by a term other than miraculous.
Of course, the big question has to be why God is not performing more miracles. Why do so many opportunities for miracles go untouched by God? Lee explores this question at the end of his book and while his conclusion is not fully satisfying, it is likely the best we can expect since God has not provided us with a detailed explanation of His plan.
Overall, this is a well-written book, easy to read, and an inspiring example of how God is in fact working in our world today. Lee takes a careful look at all sides of the issue and comes away with a compelling reason to believe God is still in the miracle business.
