The Case for Christ: The Film
DVD Released Tuesday
Let me ask you this. What if the story of Jesus Christ was picked apart by one of the best crime reporters in the nation? What if that investigative reporter was an atheist who set out to prove Jesus was a myth? And what if that reporter wrote a story about Jesus that was the truth?
You don’t have to ponder the questions any longer. It all happened…and the information first became a book, The Case for Christ, and now is a movie available on DVD.
I met Strobel when he was a teaching pastor at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, Calif. He was of great encouragement and a big part of my own spiritual journey. I share this post because it was exciting news for me eight years ago and it is still exciting today.
From Lee Strobel’s website bio:
Lee Strobel is an atheist-turned-Christian—once an awardwinning legal editor of The Chicago Tribune, now a New York Times bestselling author of nearly 20 books.
Education and Conversion
Lee was educated at the University of Missouri (Bachelor of Journalism, 1974) and Yale Law School (Master of Studies in Law, 1979). In his 14 years’ writing for The Chicago Tribune and other newspapers, he won Illinois’ top honors for investigative reporting (which he shared with a team he led) and public service journalism from United Press International.
After nearly two years of investigating evidence of Jesus’ claims, in 1981, Lee became a Christian. He joined the staff of Willow Creek Community Church in South Barrington IL in 1987 and later became a teaching pastor there. In 2000, he joined Saddleback Valley Community Church in Lake Forest CA as a teaching pastor. In mid 2002, he left Saddleback to focus on writing, and he is also a contributing editor and columnist for Outreach magazine.
