I <3 Lee Strobel.
I’m not kidding.
I’ve read a couple of his books, including one on my book shelf titled, “The Case for Christ”. I sincerely recommend it for anyone who’s struggling with their faith. Strobel is a dynamic Christian apologetic, a self described former atheist who searched out the “facts” of Jesus’ life/death/resurrection by interviewing various people. He came to the lawyerly decision that the case for Christ is so convincing that disbelief is completely asinine.
I am asinine. I was not convinced.
Why not? Because it didn’t work. Even if Jesus existed, he would hardly be impressive enough to devote my life to. I mean really. Remove the threat of hellfire, and there really isn’t much of a reason to carry on a one-sided effort to have a relationship with someone, real or invisible. I used to talk to Jesus all day as a believer. It becomes rather empty and uneventful after a while.
