The Case for Christ, the Movie

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.

Leslie Strobel was the impetus and the inspiration behind her husband Lee Strobel’s bestselling book, The Case for Christ. An atheist like her husband, Leslie slowly came to believe the claims of Christianity as she saw faith at work in the lives of others and in the circumstances of her life. When Lee set out to disprove her newfound faith, the research led him on an unexpected journey. Their story comes to life on the big screen beginning April 7 in the feature film, The Case for Christ. With Lee, Leslie is the co-author of the book Spiritual Mismatch.
