The upcoming film "The Case for Christ," based on Lee Strobel's best-selling book of the same name, will make its big screen debut in spring 2017 and will take viewers along his journey from atheism to faith.
The film will explore Strobel's journey as an unwavering atheist who used his skills as an award-winning investigative journalist to try and disprove Christianity. His findings, however, led him to become a believer in Christ.
According to the film's synopsis, the movie "draws on the true story of Lee and Leslie Strobel, whose marriage struggled mightily as her growing faith collided with his determined atheism. The dramatic retelling of their journey offers heart and a human touch on the in-depth research Lee Strobel conducted."
"The book The Case for Christ, lays out the overwhelming foundation of evidence from which personal faith can rise," Strobel said in a statement shared with The Christian Post.
"The film gives the dramatic story behind the story of a man with personal animosity for Christianity who used journalistic and legal techniques to evaluate its claims. 'The Case for Christ' takes audiences on an exciting journey from skepticism to belief."
