Author Lee Strobel, a former atheist and journalist who attempted to prove that Jesus did not resurrect from the dead, said that nonbelievers who see the upcoming “The Case for Christ” film will witness real evidence for God.
“We felt like there’s a lot of people who are curious about faith and wonder whether there’s any real evidence that God exists and that Jesus is who he claimed to be, and we thought, you know, if it can help people come to some resolution of that or begin their own investigation, then it’s worth kind of putting ourselves out there that way,” Strobel said in an interview with Newsmax TV.
Strobel, whose best-selling book of the same name chronicles his journey from an atheist trying to disprove the evidence for Jesus, to becoming a Christian himself, admitted that it is “disconcerting” to see his raw story portrayed on the big screen.
He promised that beside a story “about a marriage, a love story, about a father-son,” audiences will also be “drawn into the evidence.”
The now Christian author struggled at the time to accept his wife’s conversion to Christianity, and wanted to use his journalistic and legal training to investigate and disprove Jesus. But his efforts “collapsed” after he found real evidence for Christ.
“The evidence of history, I think, points powerfully and persuasively toward the conclusion that the resurrection is an actual historical event,” Strobel told NewsMax.
“So I became convinced that it’s true. I ended up becoming a Christian, and our lives changed from there.”
