Hung jury on The Case for Faith, 24 April 2010
Author: laura-827 from San Francisco Bay Area, USA

The Case for Faith examines two questions that challenge the faith of Christians: 1) Why is Jesus the only path to God? and 2) How could a loving God allow evil in the world? The questions are presented in a context that suggests the discussion might help Christians offer answers to these questions to others that are skeptical of the Christian faith.

I found the treatment of the questions uneven. I thought the film gave a stronger argument for the case for faith in consideration of the second question, although the treatment would have been stronger if opposition, such as a quotation from Bertrand Russell, had not been shrugged off so glibly. I found the case for faith presented for the first question lacking rigor, and not at all satisfying.

I would say this material is somewhat worthwhile for those with curiosity about Christianity, and more so for Christians who are beginning a search for ways to help others that are struggling with these difficult questions of faith. I would caution that the treatment is too light for skeptics, or those deeply wrestling with these questions, to find much of value here.

I rate this 8/10 for sincerity and effort, but 5/10 for depth.
