The Case for Christ DVD–Journalist/Atheist Sets out to “Debunk” Christianity & Becomes Believer

Posted by Chris Parker | September 17, 2007 4


Is there evidence to confirm that Jesus of Nazareth was indeed the Son of God and the Savior of the world?



When hard-nosed investigative journalist Lee Strobel set out on a journey to de-bunk the claims of Christ, he instead uncovered something far more… a life-changing, deep-rooted faith, chronicled in the Gold Medallion award-winning, best-selling book, The Case for Christ .


Strobel, the former legal editor of the Chicago Tribune, drew upon his legal background (Yale Law School) and his years as an award-winning reporter to methodically subject the claims of Christ to the scrutiny he used in covering legal cases. With dogged research and unmatched skill, Strobel examined the historical accuracy of the Gospels, the personal claims of Jesus, and His resurrection from the dead.


The result is a remarkable journey from atheism to faith through a two-year investigation of the Bible and the life of Jesus Christ.


And now, The Case for Christ: The Film, produced by La Mirada Films, in association with Carmel Entertainment, comes to life on DVD. Lee Strobel’s stunning and innovative documentary, distributed by Lionsgate, was released on September 11. The DVD features interviews with 10 leading biblical scholars from North America and England, cutting-edge apologetics and a beautiful original music score.


This fascinating DVD is filled with a compelling mix of both historical and contemporary people, places, and findings surrounding the life and authenticity of Jesus of Nazareth. Viewers embark on a search for the Truth and are introduced to a league of experts who address a skeptic’s perspective in an easy-to-understand factual way, based on incredible documented evidence…….thanks to CreationEvolutionHeadlines

    When Lee Strobel set out to debunk the claims of Christ, he was somehow unable to find a single scholar to interview who might challenge the conservative Christian viewpoint. Then he pretends to be surprised when he finds the “evidence” pointing towards the conservative Christian position. Sounds to me like a court where only one side gets to present any evidence. Is this really anyone’s idea of intellectual integrity?

    I don’t know Vinny.

    Both Strobel and his wife describe him as having been “aggressively anti Christian” and anti-religion–and of course, an Atheist prior to his investigation.

    If anything, had he come down on the side of continuing Atheism; continued unbelief etc. wouldn’t “conservative Christians” have reason to doubt his Intellectual Integrity–he having set out to prove that there is no God?

    If he had come down on the side of atheism without consulting a single conservative Christian scholar, I think you would have had reason to question the objectivity of his investigation.

    If you’ve actually viewed the DVD you’re one up on me,however as a point of clarification I’d assume any scholar who calls himself a Christian believes in God and Jesus Christ. I don’t believe only “conservative” Christians should be expected to hold those beliefs. Christian means follower of Christ.

    Is your concern that he didn’t consult non-believing scholars?
