Lee Strobel, with a Master of Studies in Law degree from Yale, was an award-winning journalist for 13 years at the Chicago Tribune and other newspapers. He was a spiritual skeptic until 1981. Today he serves as teaching pastor at Willow Creek Community Church in suburban Chicago. He is the best-selling author of Inside the Mind of Unchurched Harry and Mary, What Jesus Would Say, and The Case for Christ
Who are unchurched Harry and Mary? He or she could be the neighbor who is perfectly happy without God. Or the co-worker who scoffs at Christianity. Or the supervisor who uses Jesus' name only as profanity. Or the family member who can't understand why religion is so important. Inside the Mind of Unchurched Harry and Mary isn't a book of theory. It's an action plan to help Christians relate the message of Christ to the people they work around, live with, and call their friends. Using personal experiences, humor, compelling stories, biblical illustrations, and the latest research, Lee Strobel helps Christians understand unbelievers and what motivates them. The book includes: - 15 key insights into why people steer clear of God and the church - A look at Christianity and its message through the eyes of a former atheist - Practical, inspirational strategies for building relationships with unbelievers - Firsthand advice on surviving marriage to an unbelieving spouse.See all Product Description
