Trivia

Theologian and writer Robert M. Price attempted to refute Lee Strobel's claims in the book "The Case Against The Case For Christ: A New Testament Scholar Refutes the Reverend Lee Strobel" from 2010. However, Price's book has only served to strengthen the evidence presented by Strobel, and Price's claims as a "Leading New Testament Scholar" are questionable at best considering the credentials of the scholars who were actually consulted.

Goofs

The timeline for the movie is the early 80's. William Lane Craig was only beginning his research into the Resurrection during that time under Wolfhart Pannenberg. He didn't publish his doctoral thesis on the topic until 1984/5. See more »

More proselytizing pablum
26 April 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hollywood knows a cash market when they see one. They have learned that evangelicals will throw lots of money at anything that supports their beliefs and helps indoctrinate others, and so we're seeing these proselytizing flicks regularly.

What makes this one particularly loathsome is that the filmmakers hawk it as being based on the "hard-hitting" journalism of Lee Strobel. Well, they have a funny notion of "hard-hitting," since Strobel's book basically packages the essays of thirteen Christian academics, mostly from theological institutions. That's the sum of his "hard-hitting" research--letting readers be evangelized by believers.

It's not surprising, then, that the product of his work is unconvincing as anything approaching journalism, and that applies equally to the film. If you want an actual investigation into the historical Jesus, read the scholarly, On the Historicity of Jesus: Why We Might Have Reason for Doubt by Richard Carrier. The Kindle version costs about the same as a movie ticket and your intelligence won't be insulted for your trouble.
