Based on the true story of an award-winning investigative journalist -- and avowed atheist -- who applies his well-honed journalistic and legal skills to disprove the newfound Christian faith of his wife... with unexpected, life-altering results.
Lee Strobel was an award-winning legal editor of The Chicago Tribune. See more »
In the film, the character of Lee Strobel clearly writes the book, on which this movie is based, during and right after his conversion. In real life, the book came out about seventeen years later. See more »
This is a movie that every person should see. If we put ourselves in Lee Strobel's shoes, it's incredible to think of the extent that he went to, to try to disprove faith.
We all believe in something, and if we don't know what we believe, or believe in something that has no documentation to prove how this world was created and how we got here, then it's important to investigate how we got here, because when we leave, if there is a heaven and a hell, would one want to spend eternity in hell? I really don't think so. Our lifetime on earth would be a blink of an eye compared to eternity. John 3:16 in the Bible documents that there is heaven and hell and that the only way to heaven is through belief in Jesus Christ.
Some people can only believe in what they see, or that man came from an ape, but if man came from an ape, how did the ape get here and where is it documented back to the beginning of time that man came from ape?
The decision to believe in Christ, or not to believe in Christ is an individual decision. No one can decide for a person, they make a decision to believe in their hearts, what they want to believe.
Everyone knows that when you take a book into movie form, that you cannot take every sentence from the book into the movie, otherwise the movie would be 10 hours long (or more). This movie is amazing, and I highly recommend it to anyone considering seeing the movie...whether you believe or not.
I'm not a fanatic. I'm a normal person, a retired corporate executive and a person that hopes that people will understand that there really is a heaven and hell before their life on this planet ends so that they can spend eternity in heaven through belief in Jesus Christ. Christ loved everyone he came in contact with...even when they did not love him.
See this movie...you won't regret it. Then, spread the word for others to go to, it's worth every minute of viewing.
