The Case for a author explored the medical facts for God;

The Case for Christ investigated the historic proof for Jesus;

The Case for religion answered to 8 significant objections approximately Christianity;

The Case for the genuine Jesus refuted the present demanding situations to the Bible and Christ …

Now, within the Case for Grace, Lee Strobel crafts a compelling and hugely own experiential case for God, targeting God’s remodeling paintings within the lives of fellows and girls today.

Writing with strange candor, Lee attracts upon his personal trip from atheism to Christianity to discover the intensity and breadth of God’s redeeming love for spiritually wayward humans. He travels hundreds of thousands of miles to trap the inspiring tales of daily humans whose values were notably replaced and who've found the “how” and “why” at the back of God’s outstanding grace. You’ll stumble upon racists, addicts, or even murderers who've discovered new desire and function. You’ll meet once-bitter those that have acquired God’s energy to forgive those that have harmed them—and, both extraordinary, humans mired in guilt who've stumbled on that they could even forgive themselves.

Through all of it, you may be inspired as you notice how God’s grace can revolutionize your eternity and relationships… beginning at the present time.

Sample text

This description oflength I believe true as based on the measurement. Faced with the problem of buying a covering cloth for the table, I might accept as true a description of the table as being 4 feet long, as such a description is sufficiently exact for this purpose. I might then both assert and assent to this description, and use it as a basis for my purchase. But though I accept the imprecise description as true, I wouldn't believe it true. On some other occasion, say when replacing a plank on the table's top, I would instead accept the description with an accuracy to the nearest sixteenth of an inch.

See his Origins of Analytical Philosophy (London: Duckworth, 1993), p. 147. 16 That denial can be appropriate is noted by David Rosenthal in "Thinking That One THE POSSIBILITY OF ACCEPTANCE 53 Thinks" in M. Davies and G. , Consciousness (Oxford: Blackwell, 1993). In terms of this duality of pragmatic function in the first person we can explain the example ofthe mad patient given in Jean-Pierre Dupuy's "Mauvaise Foi and Self-Deception" in this volume. In effect, Dupuy's patient says, "I believe I'm mad, but I also believe I'm not mad", with the first occurrence of "believe" used descriptively of himself based on behavioral evidence and the second used expressively.

Clarke Southern Illinois University at Carbondale My topic is the problem of detennining whether it is possible for a person to accept a proposition without believing it, to accept, for example, that a table in a room is four feet long but not believe this to be true, or to accept but not believe that the universe originated with a big bang.
