The Case For Christ is a new Christian drama film based on a book written by an award-winning investigative journalist, who as an atheist was working to disprove the newfound Christian faith of his wife. The movie debuts in theaters April 7.
Illinois journalist and former Chicago Tribune legal editor Lee Strobel wrote the true story about his life from the 1980s and published the book (with the same name) in 1998. He applied his journalistic and legal skills to attempt to disprove his wife, Leslie’s, unwavering, new belief in Christianity. After two years of analyses and with the threat of divorce, Strobel’s journalistic journey ended with unexpected, life-altering results.
“I spent my entire career as a journalist, uncovering the truth, until the day my wife presented me with the biggest story of my life,” explained the skeptical Strobel, who riffled through contradictory details of the Resurrection, looking for evidence, and who ultimately was brought to faith in the process.
Strobel has authored 20-plus books, and now is a professor at Houston Baptist University as well as teaching pastor at Woodlands Church.
The Case For Christ book summarizes Strobel’s interviews with 13 evangelical Christian scholars: Craig Blomberg, Bruce Metzger, Edwin Yamauchi, John McRay, Gregory Boyd, Ben Witherington III, Gary Collins, D.A.
