”The Case for Christ” on Netflix!I strongly recommend the watch. This movie is based on a true story and portrays the life of author and journalist Lee Strobel and his personal struggle with a difficult journey towards his Christianity.

It reveals how the facts Strobel collected from priests, scholars, psychologists, and medical doctors created a logical, medically sound argument in support of the belief Jesus’ resurrection.

This movie is based on Strobel’s book of the same name, “The Case for Christ.” The book tells the story of Strobel, a “Pulitzer Prize-nominated investigative reporter, writer, and atheist”, who seeks to disprove God’s existence to convert his wife into becoming an atheist, but didn’t turn out anything like Lee thought it would.

This movie took place in 1980s and Strobel is happily married to Leslie at the time and Lee has just been promoted to legal editor of the Chicago Tribune (Yes, this happened in Chicago). The movie also highlights some of the gaps in the arguments of those who reject the existence of God, including the fact that Jesus was human and flawed.

This is a movie that deals with issues/topics including marriage, family problems, shootings, police investigations, interviews with professors, scientists, and doctors, and the death of a parent.

While the time this was happening, Strobel was dealing with a shooting investigation that involved a police officer and a gang member. The gang member was on trial for shooting another officer.

Lee was able to help since he took many criminal investigations classes in college and the police officer was later found guilty. Three months later, Lee‘s editor pitched an idea for an article on Lee’s journey from atheist to believer, but his editor does not agree to it since it would change the credibility of the paper.

Later on, Lee tells Leslie about it, and Leslie recommends that Lee write a book about it giving way to the publication and making of the book and movie “The Case for Christ”.
