“The Case for Christ” Hits Theaters Ahead of Holy Week

By Leigh Harper, March 30, 2017

“The Case for Christ” surprised everyone, including its author Lee Strobel, when it landed the No. 1 spot on The New York Times best-seller list in the late 1990s. The book chronicles Strobel’s journey of trying to prove if Jesus is the son of God by interviewing biblical experts. Strobel was an atheist and the legal editor of the Chicago Tribune when he began writing the book, but he became a Christian along the way.

“Apologetics books didn’t sell then,” Strobel said of the book’s 1998 release. “A scholar I interviewed [for the book] told me no one would read it because people don’t care about evidence.”

The scholar was wrong. Millions of copies have been sold and the book has “gone around the world,” as Strobel phrases it. It has been translated into so many languages he’s lost count.

Now, Strobel is invited to be a keynote speaker at conferences around the world such as National Conference on Christian Apologetics, C3 Conference and fundraising events for pro-life organizations. He’s written more than 20 books and currently serves as a teaching pastor at Woodlands Church in Texas and as a professor of Christian thought at Houston Baptist University.
