THE CASE FOR CHRIST In Theaters April 7th

The movie THE CASE FOR CHRIST opens in theaters nationwide on April 7th.

I saw an early draft of the film a few months ago – this movie is one of the most well-produced, high quality faith-based films I’ve seen. A great film to encourage your volunteers to go see. When planning events for your team the next month, this would also be a great movie to take a group to.


I interviewed Lee Strobel, upon whom the film is based, over the phone recently and also had a chance to spend some time with Lee and his wife Leslie at the NRB Convention in Orlando a few weeks ago. This is a very humble couple – you would never expect Lee to be the best-selling author and pastor he is. Check out more about the movie and listen to my interview with Lee below.

About the Film:

A hard-driving journalist, Lee Strobel 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 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.

Based on Lee Strobel’s award-winning bestselling book and starring Mike Vogel, Erika Christensen, Faye Dunaway, and Robert Forster, THE CASE FOR CHRIST opens in theaters April 7. It’s an ideal Easter-season movie for anyone who has ever pondered the existence of God … and what role He could play in their lives.

The Case for Christ was directed by Jonathan M. Gunn and stars Mike Vogel, Erika Christensen, Robert Forster, and Faye Dunaway.

About the Lee Strobel:

Lee Strobel is the former award-winning legal editor of the Chicago Tribune and bestselling author of more than 20 books. For the last 25 years, he has shared the evidence that supports the truth and claims of Christianity, equipping believers to share their faith with the people they know and love. His classic book, The Case for Christ, details his journey to Christianity, and The Case for Grace won the 2016 Nonfiction Book of the Year from the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association.  Lee earned his Bachelor of Journalism degree from the University of Missouri and his Master’s of Studies in Law at Yale Law School. A journalist for 14 years at the Chicago Tribune and other newspapers, he won Illinois’ highest honor for public service journalism from UPI. Lee has been a featured guest on national networks, hosted the TV program Faith Under Fire, and appeared in God’s Not Dead 2 as an expert witness. A teaching pastor at Woodlands Church in Texas, he is also on the faculty at Houston Baptist University as a professor of Christian thought.
