Reviewing "The Case for a Creator: Student Edition"


"The Case for a Creator: Student Edition" by Lee Strobel and Jane Vogel, is a wonderful tool for students to use in their investigation into where the universe came from.  Having read the full edition years ago, I knew that the book would be full of fascinating and convincing scientific evidence for the Creator.  Lee Strobel has written a plethora of wonderful materials for adults and I think it's great that his books are being transformed into a form that is even more accessible for students.

The small/skinny book (only 95 pages) is the perfect size for a teen to be able to handle without getting overwhelmed with the feeling that they are reading a text book. There are 7 concise chapters exploring such topics as the Big Bang and DNA. Each chapter contains interesting illustrations, charts and side bars which are done in a style that is stylistically targeted toward the student.  While flipping through the book those neat features catch your attention and draw you into the chapters even more.

I was pleased to see how well this student edition was planned out and would definitely recommend it for families with kids who are in Junior High or older.  I would also recommend it for anybody who doesn't have the time to read the full edition and wants to get an overview of the most important themes and ideas, or as a gift to pass along to your friends who may have questions about God and where we came from.
