An exciting journey from skepticism to belief

The hard-driving legal editor at the Chicago Tribune Lee Strobel was a confident atheist who was determined to disprove his wife's newfound Christian faith. To do that he applied his well-honed investigative and legal skills to try to disprove the Resurrection of Jesus and thereby recover his wife. However, compelled by the hard evidence he finds and the reality of Christ in lives around him, he became a believer in Jesus Christ.

A rigorous detective-like investigation is what we can find know in a movie which stars Mike Vogel as Lee Strobel and Erika Christensen as his wife Leslie.

Seeing a portrait of himself Lee Strobel confesses he must have been not the nicest narcissistic, heavy-drinking, self-destructive, self-absorbed atheist. and says
"But that's in the film, and that's okay if it helps people. I hope that there'll be some skeptics out there who will start their own spiritual journey after seeing the movie."
which gives the dramatic story behind the story of a man with personal animosity for Christianity who used journalistic and legal techniques to evaluate its claims.
"The Case for Christ takes audiences on an exciting journey from skepticism to belief.”
The movie is based on Strobel's best-selling 1998 book The Case for Christ: A Journalist's Personal Investigation of the Evidence for Jesus which has sold over 14 million copies worldwide. The book focuses on 13 scholarly authorities that Strobel interviewed about the historical evidence for the Resurrection.
