The Case for Christ


Based upon the Gold-Medallion award-winning best-seller, The Case for Christ documents Lee Strobel’s journey from atheism to faith through his two-year investigation of the Bible and the life of Jesus Christ. Strobel, the former legal editor of the Chicago Tribune, draws upon his investigative skills to examine the historical accuracy of the Gospels, the personal claims of Jesus and His resurrection from the dead. Is there evidence to confirm that Jesus of Nazareth was, indeed, the son of God and the savior of the world? This remarkable film features interviews with 10 leading Biblical scholars from North American and England, cutting-edge apologetics, and a compelling original music score.

Dove Review

This is a very powerful documentary. Lee Strobel, the former atheist, goes on a search to prove the existence of Christ. He is amazed in what he discovers in his journey. He interviews several professors, studies the history of Christ himself, and discovered some things which enlightened him, such as the gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John) fit in accurately with history,

He further researches the eyewitnesses to Christ’s resurrection, and comes to some definite conclusions. An example of his findings is that both James, the half-brother of Jesus, and Saul (later Paul) both were non-believers when Christ lived but actually were converted after the resurrection. This is a spiritual journey the viewer will not want to miss. It is done in the light of academics and the researcher kept an open mind.

Although we recognize this subject might not keep young children’s attention, we award it our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages. Most viewers will find it to be a fascinating journey.
