I was duped
3 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

I saw a trailer for this film and thought it was about a genuine investigation into the historicity of Jesus. Boy was I wrong! It is nothing more than a piece of trashy propaganda for American Christians. If I might also say, it has the distinct feel of "made for t.v." about it. Basically, all the Atheists are made to look like angry, arrogant know-all's while the Christians are all patient, loving and well rounded individuals. Its really nauseating!Perhaps the worst scene of the lot is when a "psychologist" claims that Strobels atheism was all down to his bad relationship with his father.The moral of the movie (and don't you just hate when movies have morals) is that all atheists are damaged people who just need to find God in order to be cured. It should be shown exclusively in bible study classes and not inflicted on a thinking, intelligent audience.
