The Case for Christ (Movie Review)

About the Movie:

A hard-driving journalist, Lee Strobel (Mike Vogel) was exactly where he expected to be at work: on top. His award-winning investigative reporting recently earned him a promotion to legal editor at the Chicago Tribune. But things weren’t going nearly as well at home where his wife Leslie’s (Erika Christensen) newfound faith in Christ went against everything Lee believed—or didn’t believe—as an avowed atheist.

Utilizing his journalistic and legal training, Lee begins a quest to debunk the claims of Christianity in order to save his crumbling marriage. Chasing down the biggest story of his career, Lee comes face-to-face with unexpected results that could change everything he knows to be true.

The Case for Christ comes out on DVD, Blu-ray, and for digital download on August 15th, and is available for pre-order on Amazon, iTunes and Walmart.

Watch the trailer here.

My Thoughts:

Lee Strobel is a well known author that most people are familiar with. As a young journalist, he was thrust into a story that was centuries old, but was directly affecting his personal life. This is an adventure based on his true story.

As an atheist, he was so angry that his wife had found religion, and he was determined to prove that she was wrong.  And he set out to prove that Christianity was just a big hoax.

I can't say enough about this movie, as I don't want to spoil it for anyone. This story is for all beliefs, and it can definitely change lives. Think about getting a copy of this movie for your own personal collection, and I promise that you won't be disappointed!

A personal note: I have dug out an old copy of this book from my late husband's book collection, and now I understand why it was one of his favourites.
