Lee Strobel is a well known Christian author. One of the books he wrote is called, “The Case for Christ.” In this book he tells his own personal story of discovery that God is real and there is no other God. Strobel was an atheist. When his wife becomes a Christian, he sets out to show her that there is no God. Yet every evidence he uncovered only pointed to the truth that “the Lord, He is God.” As a result, Strobel also gave his life to Christ.
Each one of us must come to a point in life where we consider in our heart and know that God is God. God wants us to know of his goodness, greatness, and glory. Everything in creation points to Him. Every blessing He gives us. Every time He speaks to us through His Word. Every answered prayer. It all points to God. The way to get to know Him is through Bible study and prayer. You can’t know a person you don’t spend much time with. You might know about them, but you can’t truly know them.
God wants us to truly know Him. To settle it in our heart. He wants us to know there can be no other god. If you are struggling to know God, talk with a pastor or begin studying His Word. He reveals Himself to those who earnestly seek Him. Here are some books to help you get to know God, including Lee Strobel’s book:

|AHA: The God Moment That Changes Everything
By Kyle Idleman / David C Cook
Are there places in your life where you would like to experience an aha! moment? A moment of truth that renews your heart and mind bringing transformation? Maybe for you, it’s a fear or a failure that you just can’t shake. For some, it could be the need for approval, a food addiction, or an all-out rebellion that leads to a life of excess and shame, like the prodigal son.
As a pastor, Kyle Idleman has heard dozens of stories from people about their aha! moments. In this newest book, he shares the common threads from their stories, and the story of the prodigal son that will help you reconnect with the love of our heavenly Father. Drawing on Scriptural truths, he outlines three key elements (Awakening, Honesty, Action) that will draw you closer to God and change your life for good. Includes study questions.
