This book has been strongly promoted at the church I attend. I had been meaning to buy it for a while and then I heard they were showing the film.. It’s set in 1980 (Lee Strobel is still very much alive today) when his award-winning, investigative reporting earns him a promotion to legal editor at the Chicago Tribune. Things at home aren’t going nearly as well. His wife Leslie’s newfound faith in Christ compels Lee to utilise his journalistic and legal training to try and disprove the claims of Christianity, pitting his resolute atheism against her growing faith. Our church was absolutely packed for the viewing of this amazing and faith building and people converting film. Do whatever you can to see it.
Immediately I ordered the book and it’s every bit as good – although understandably far more in-depth – and not a quick flick through book. Using the dramatic scenario of an investigative journalist pursuing his story and leads, Lee Strobel uses his experience as a reporter for the Chicago Tribune to interview experts about the evidence for Christ from the fields of science, philosophy, and history. Winner of the Gold Medallion Book Award and twice nominated for the Christian Book of the Year Award. Do whatever it takes to get a copy and read it.
