Many people, especially people that did not grow up in a church (myself included), have all sorts of notions about God that are partly fantasy and partly the way we would like God to be. What Lee Strobel presents in his book is that God has prescriptions for our daily living that is counter-intuitive, and not what we imagined. Jesus tells us to love our enemies, to pray for those who despitefully use us. These are not just platitudes, but actually benefit us. Strobel demonstrates through illustrations and examples, how doing the counter-intuitive things God's way actually helps us in the situation. Forgiveness of enemies, giving and sacrificing for others, putting others first, asking God and leaning on Him for strength, all are extremely liberating if one is able to actually believe and practice (easier said than done). This is where Strobel's book comes in, giving examples, pointing out Scripture, and inspiring us to look more deeply into God's way. And this includes God's only way of salvation for us, which is His only begotten Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. If you get to that chapter, you'll discover that God has reserved blessings for you beyond what you would have imagined.
This book is highly recommended for skeptics, people who have not been raised Christian, and people who came to the Faith late in their lives.
