The Case for Grace Student Edition by Lee Strobel with Jane Vogel

"The Case for Grace Student Edition", the newest book by Lee Strobel and Jane Vogel is aimed at junior high and high school age students. This book is relatively short at only 132 pages, with a compilation of 8 different stories from a wide range of people who have been shown God's grace when they thought they deserved it least.

Many of the stories tugged on my heart strings but especially the second entitled "The Orphan". It was about a young child who was abandoned at only 3 years of age and ended up living on the streets with no one to love her. There are many other themes to the other chapters: "The Mistake", "The Executioner", and "The Addict" just to name a few.

The book ends with a chapter on what the Bible says about grace, and other helpful books that will give readers more insight into grace.

This is not the first book I have read by Lee Strobel but it is the first Student Edition I have read of his. I will say that the Student Edition does not have as much information as the original and I feel that makes it much easier for teens to understand. However, because of the sensitive nature of some of the topics I would suggest that this book be read by young adults 13 years of age or older.

To sum it up, I really enjoyed this book and I think it's an informative read for teenagers.

I rate this book as 4 stars. Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers <http://booklookbloggers.com> book review bloggers program.
