life-changing story is now portrayed in a full-length feature film,
coming to cinemas this April.

In 1980, Strobel’s award-winning investigative reporting earned him a
promotion to legal editor at the Chicago Tribune. However, life
at home wasn’t going nearly as well. His wife Leslie’s newfound faith in
Christ compelled Lee to utilize his journalistic and legal training to
disprove the claims of Christianity – pitting his skepticism against her
growing faith. Based on Strobel’s bestselling book of the same name, The
Case for Christ
is a dramatic and heartfelt telling of their
compelling journey.

The Case for Christ has impacted the lives of numerous people
around the world,” Fathom Events CEO John Rubey said. “This re-telling
of Strobel’s journey of faith brings to life a story that has become
hugely influential in the world of Christian apologetics today, and we
are thrilled to be a part of its cinematic debut.”

“We believe Lee and Leslie Strobel’s real-life story, which led him to
writing The Case For Christ, makes for a compelling movie,” said
Michael Scott, CEO and co-founder of Pure Flix and a producer of the
film. “What a privilege it will be for us and audiences to see them live
on movie theater screens talking about their experiences.”
