The movie draws on the true story of Lee and Leslie Strobel, whose marriage struggled mightily as her growing faith collided with his determined atheism. The dramatic retelling of their journey offers heart and a human touch on the in-depth research Lee Strobel conducted.
Lee Strobel has a journalism degree from the University of Missouri and a Master of Studies in Law degree from Yale Law School, was the award-winning legal editor of the Chicago Tribune and a spiritual skeptic until 1981. He originally set out to disprove the Bible, but in doing so discovered it was the most reliable ancient document known to man. He wrote The Case for Christ to share his personal story and the evidence that swayed him.
If you have not yet seen The Case For Christ, this Easter weekend is the perfect time to see it, and bring along your atheist friends, as this true story is sure to prompt questions in them.
