The Case for Christ movie may send some disciples of Richard Dawkins whirling. Not because they fear an epiphany may lead to conversion but because for the first time in living color and surround sound believers witness first hand why non-believers must remove God from the daily mix.
Lee Strobel (Mike Vogel) is a reporter and happily married man until he accepts the challenge to debunk “Jesus,” the new devotee of his wife. Three years of research reveals Strobel’s frustration with being unable to refute Christianity and dispel the death and resurrection of Jesus. “Do you want to know the truth?” a fellow reporter asks, “or is your mind already made up?”
Case for Christ is so well edited and acted that you may feel at times you want to jump in with your own comments. You can do that in the car on the way home. What’s really at the crux of this faith-based film is what its audience on either side does with the revelation that yes, the death and resurrection did happen.
In his quest for the truth, Strobel got what he asked for and more. His 1998 book by the same title has sold millions of copies.
