Storyline

Based upon the Gold-Medallion award-winning best-seller, The Case for Christ documents Lee Strobel's journey from atheism to faith through his two-year investigation of the Bible and the life of Jesus Christ. Strobel, the former legal editor of the Chicago Tribune, draws upon his investigative skills to examine the historical accuracy of the Gospels, the personal claims of Jesus and His resurrection from the dead. Is there evidence to confirm that Jesus of Nazareth was, indeed, the son of God and the savior of the world? This remarkable film features interviews with 10 leading Biblical scholars from North American and England, cutting-edge apologetics, and a compelling original music score. Written by Anonymous

Christian/faith propaganda film
12 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This whole movie gives you the distinct feeling of watching pure Christian/faith propaganda film. This so-called documentary refers to passages in the gospels of the new testament, then ask religious people for their opinions on the validity of those passages. How can you consider this to be an actual investigation into Jesus Christ when they keep referring to the gospels alone and expecting you to adhere with faith alone?

I've seen several documentaries on how they find evidence, investigate facts, this is nothing close. Basically the narrator reads the gospel stories, consults theologians and philosophers, then answers his own questions. But provides no evidence to the viewer that Jesus existed as the Christ, or that he actually was resurrected. I personal do believe that Jesus lived.

You're not making a strong case for your religious questions by basically saying: well look at all this evidence in the bible, it must all be true; I have to have faith, let me go tell my wife so she wouldn't leave me - she's been praying for me to see the light all these years...
