Lee Strobel was an award-winning legal editor of The Chicago Tribune. See more »
In the film, the character of Lee Strobel clearly writes the book, on which this movie is based, during and right after his conversion. In real life, the book came out about seventeen years later. See more »
Strobel consults a variety of experts, from archaeologist-turned- Catholic-priest Father Jose Maria Marquez to Purdue University professor of psychiatry Dr. Roberta Waters. Each knocks down one of the lines of defense that Strobel has erected to bar acceptance of Christ's return from the dead, e.g., that the 500 witnesses to it mentioned in the New Testament were suffering from a form of mass hysteria. It makes for an intelligent quest, though one that includes a detailed exploration of the medical effects of crucifixion that would be upsetting to many kids. Director Jonathan M. Gunn and screenwriter Brian Bird intertwine Strobel's intellectual journey with his involvement in a headline- grabbing criminal case -- Renell Gibbs plays the defendant, James Dixon. They also work in a low-key study of Lee and Leslie's strong bond and of the problematic relationship between Strobel and his father, Walter. While not as heavy handed as many message movies, "The Case for Christ" -- which is acceptable for a wide audience -- succeeds more as a vindication of the rationality of belief than as entertainment. On the other hand, those looking for an informal way to bolster their religious education during the holiest of seasons could hardly find a more fitting choice.
