Publisher's Summary

God's astounding claims about himself and his work on our behalf are embedded throughout the pages of Scripture. He sees potential in us that we don't see in our wildest dreams. He sees qualities that we don't think we can ever achieve. He has faith in us that we lack in ourselves. But when we know and fully understand what He has promised, we are liberated to grow in virtue, live out our faith as an adventure, relate to others with authenticity, earn a living with integrity, and make a difference in our culture - all through his power.

Lee Strobel's insights into the benefits of living as a fully devoted follower of Christ are refreshing and powerfully relevant. Using true stories, including his own, he shows that Christianity really works, that we really can live transformed, authentic, and effective lives--and that God's promises and power are very real and very true.

insightful look into christians and our faith

Some key areas for me in this book included: 1) the perspective of non-Christians about Christians (and how it affects the way we engage), 2) testimony and narrative describing the way love manifests itself in true Christian actions, 3) conversation about "The Golden Rule", 4) how the minute we profess Christ in our lives we will be observed by others (and the way our character can paint us as self-righteous or hypocritical... or humble, blind sinners who makes mistakes and need a Saviour [thank God we have One!!!]) and 5) Lee's classic conversation of proofs of the empty tomb and other supporting arguments. This last point is not a dwelling place, but a resonable stop along the way, and I think that any book that supports Christian faith should encourage and support others in whatever way is consistent with the core theme of the book. As a frequent traveller, this book has been great company on the road, and I recommend it.

God's Outrageious Claims

I found this to be an outstanding overview of the promises of God to His people and practical application of the Bible teachings for the 21st century. The fact that Strobles began as an atheist strengthens his testimony and teachings.

A thoughtful example-filled book

At first I was skeptical about starting the book since the title suggested a preachy approach. But I was pleasantly surprised by how thoughtful it was, supported by a lot of references and examples. I was particularly touched by the real life applications and heartbreaking stories. Be prepared to be impacted by the book.

Great book, full of the power of God.

Ask Jesus into your life and see what happens. He protested me thru Vietnam and Desert Shield and Desert Storm. While looking back I see how much the Holly Spirit protected me in life and in war. Praise God.

Great book, great teaching

Love it when Lee Strobel narrates his own books. Also love his matter of fact, honest approach to evangelism. He uses examples from his journalistic experiences so well. I have read this book once and listened to it 3 times whilst out and about walking and I still find it refreshing.
