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

Starts with misinformation, and doesn't stop
25 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Immediately after this movie showed up in my video streaming service of choice, I felt I had to watch this, just to get the other side of the story. Not 5 minutes in, this film starts with an incorrect definition of atheism, one which loads itself with implications that "God" exists. "One who denies the existence of God" is the definition given. Already this "Documentary" is stating its position, that "God" exists, and that atheists are merely "denying" his existence.

The gospels are later described as eyewitness accounts, despite being written decades after the deaths of the attributed authors.

The movie continues to spout blatant falsehoods, and outright lie until you get sick of it and turn it off. 1/10
