For everyone who has ever pondered the existence of God, The Case For Christ movie is a heartfelt and compelling journey 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.
Starting September 15th, we will be hosting a four-week sermon series using Scriptures and video clips from the movie to help people grow more established in their faith and understand why they believe what they do. Join us each Sunday at 10 AM in the Monarch Room at 3100 F AVE NW in Cedar Rapids, IA.
The Case For Christ movie released in theaters nationwide a little over 2 years ago, and is based on the New York Times best-selling book by Lee Strobel. It’s the 1980 Chicago true story of a journalist (Strobel) who goes on a C.S. Lewis-like journey from skepticism to faith by first trying to debunk Christianity, only to realize that the evidence for Christ was just too powerful to remain an unbeliever.
A hard-driving journalist, Lee Strobel was exactly where he expected to be at work: on top. His wife Leslie’s newfound faith in Christ went against everything Lee believed—or didn’t believe—as an avowed atheist.
Utilizing his journalistic and legal training, Lee begins a quest to debunk the claims of Christianity in order to save his crumbling marriage. Chasing down the biggest story of his career, Lee comes face-to-face with unexpected results that could change everything he knows to be true.
