Christian movies have come a long way. This is well written and well acted (Mike Vogel, Erika Christensen, Faye Dunaway, Robert Forster, et al.). But being a true story makes it even better. Telling the journey of award winning journalist Lee Strobel (he broke the exploding Ford Pinto story) from atheist to Christian Pastor the movie follows him as he tries to debunk the Resurrection.
Figuring that if he could debunk the Resurrection he could stop his wife from joining the Christian cult. Trust us you are not going to like Lee for most of the movie. Since he believes in facts he approaches the Resurrection as any story that he would write with a lot of research. For the next two years he talks to numerous scientists, historians, theologians, psychologists, and medical doctors on his journey and ultimately writes "The Case for Christ" making the case for the historical evidence of Jesus Christ and the Resurrection.
Since it attempts to spark intellectual debate about Christianity it is similar to another great Christian movie, "God is not Dead", although we feel that "God is not Dead" is a slightly better movie. Both movies are worth seeing and we hope you enjoy them.
Till next time,
