In The Case for Faith, legally trained investigative reporter Lee Strobel investigates two of the most emotional objections to Christianity. Barriers to faith confronted by believers and skeptics alike; Why is Jesus the only way to God? And how could a loving God exist if there is evil and suffering in the world?
Based on Strobel's Gold Medallion-winning book, the film includes interviews with scholars, theologians, and ministry leaders including Joni Eareckson Tada, N.T. Wright, Ben Witherington, Greg Koukl, and Rick Warren. Each reaches beyond intellectual arguments to touch the depths of the human heart.
The Case for Faith DVD is a powerful Biblical apologetic for anyone who has experienced doubt or uncertainty about God. It is an honest message of hope and spiritual clarity in a world where faith is tested on a daily basis.
Lee Strobel turns his tenacious investigative skills to the most persistent emotional objections to belief - the eight "heart" barriers to faith. The Case for Faith is for those who may be feeling attracted to Jesus but who are faced with intellectual barriers standing squarely in their path. For Christians, it will deepen their convictions and give them fresh confidence in discussing Christianity with their most skeptical friends.
Lee Strobel, with a journalism degree from the University of Missouri and a Master of Studies in Law degree from Yale Law School, was the award-winning legal editor of the Chicago Tribune and a spiritual skeptic until 1981. His books include four Gold Medallion winners and the 2005 Christian Book of the Year (coauthored with Garry Poole). He and his wife live in California.

"Evidence Proves Faith Is NOT Contrary to Reason. I found The Case for Faith compelling, rational, and well evidenced. Strobel in The Case for Faith has capably demonstrated that faith in Christianity is reasonable, well evidenced, and able to save lives (eternally). I highly recommend this DVD."

"Strobel's Second Apologetic Work Continues His Search for Faith. If you have questions about your faith, then this is a good starting point for your investigation. This is a very good starting point for answering those nagging doubts about your faith in Christianity and one's faith in the person of Jesus. Most highly recommended."

"The perfect gift for Christmas and the New Year. Lee Strobel has an innate gift for transforming the very complex philosophical issues surrounding religion into an easy-to-understand dialogue. As a result, the viewer receives a firm grounding in modern philosophy, theology and justification theory, all without having to stumble over the $10 words which normally betray such heady subjects."

"An honest and daring look at tough questions. I am impressed with the honesty and the way of Lee Strobel, and the experts he consulted, did not dodge or attempt to deflect away the accusations or tough material. I came away from the experience with some questions answered to my intellectual and emotional satisfaction."

"Clear, concise, compelling. I came to the Lord "heart-first" instead of headfirst so I never sought intellectual fact-finding that others have desired. I believed first and discovered the truth and accuracy of the Bible later. Strobel tackles the issues of faith the other way around: headfirst. The Case for Faith is one man's account of his search, discovery, and testimony for Jesus Christ. Strobel finds the evidence for believing in the Lord more compelling than the "evidence" against Him. Strobel presents tough, legitimate questions soberly and thoughtfully and seeks to find the truth. The search is nearly as interesting as the verdict: Jesus Christ is who He says He is."
