The Case for a Creator explored the scientific evidence for God; The Case for Christ investigated the historical evidence for Jesus; The Case for Faith responded to eight major objections about Christianity; The Case for the Real Jesus refuted the current challenges to the Bible and Christ.... Now, in The Case for Grace, Lee Strobel crafts a compelling and highly personal experiential case for God, focusing on God's transforming work in the lives of men and women 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 for spiritually wayward people. He travels 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. You'll encounter racists, addicts, and even murderers who have found new hope and purpose. You'll meet once-bitter people who have received God's power to forgive those who have harmed them - and, equally amazing, people mired in guilt who have discovered that they can even forgive themselves. Through it all you will be encouraged as you see how God's grace can revolutionize your eternity and relationships...starting today.

Lee's books are generally a testimony of how he came to trust the bible intellectually, but this book shows the other aspect. Also it gives a number of incredibly powerful testimonies from all different types of people, and how they came to trust God's grace in their lives. Amazing book. all should read.
"His best book so far, & Case for Christ was great."
He has a way to capture your mind with both story and message. Each story describes a different aspect of grace, too. No other religion has this idea of grace as described in the Bible.
God's love does not depend on our performance or our past. Narration was good, stories were powerful. I will listen to this one again.
Narrative was clear & passionate. Insightful exploration of Biblical grace compared to other religions and situations.
Enjoyed every minute. Understand more clearly the meaning of grace, and have a great desire to share the thoughts with others
"Amazing, simply amazing"
Never have I cried this much from reading, this book touched my heart and soul. You will find God through this book.
"Uplifting and Inspiring"
Beautiful explanation of grace. Made my heart soar and my spirit sing. So often we think we can lose something so wonderful that we never earned. If we cannot be good enough to gain it, how can we be bad enough to lose it?
"Amazing amazing amazing!!"
A must read! Lee Strobel does it again!! Thank you Lee for the blessing of your book, the insight and wisdom are so touching!
"Listen and experience a fresh touch of grace!"
Definitely. The stories are powerful and encouraging -- and give us hope for every person (including ourselves)! Also the author, Lee Strobel, reads it himself. He does a great job, and his voice inflects just the right amount of feeling/emotion.
Maybe The Case for Christ, though that one is more cerebral -- it feeds the mind, primarily, whereas this one feeds the heart.
Strobel seems to always do a good job, but this one is the easiest to listen to, because it's almost all stories of real lives, touched and transformed by God.
Yes, the chapter called "The Orphan" -- one of the most powerful and hard-hitting stories I've ever heard!
Regardless of your religious (or non-religious) views, I think this audiobook will encourage you in deep and lasting ways. Give it a try!
"Grace Coming Down"
Such a touching and inspiring series of stories that show God's amazing grace. Very easy to listen to. I've passed on many of these stories in my day to day walk. GREAT!
"Emotional Gold; Intellectual Garbage"
This book was well-written. I appreciate it for its good writing craft and quality storytelling. When it comes to actual content, evidence, arguments and rational discourse, there is none. This book is compelling on an emotional level to those who already believe in God, but utterly unsatisfying intellectually. It begins by presupposing the God of Christianity and original sin. This is intellectual garbage in its purest form.
"inspiring and joyful"
this book helped me to rejoice in the Love of God and recomit myself to making Him known.
