These life-changing DVDs will affect your look at the world and your faith in God. Based on the New York Times best-selling and Gold Medallion winning books that have sold over eight million copies.
The Case For Christ: Retracing his own spiritual journey, Lee Strobel, award-winning former legal editor of The Chicago Tribune, cross-examines the religious experts from Cambridge, Princeton, and other universities with tough, point-blank questions. This remarkable documentary is a riveting quest for the truth about history's most compelling figure.
The Case For Faith: Despite the compelling historical evidence, many people grapple with serious concerns about faith in God. 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.
The Case For a Creator: When objectively considered, does contemporary scientific evidence point toward or away from a supernatural Creator? Using interviews with scientists and scholars from a wide range of disciplines for the answers, The Case For a Creator is a remarkable film about Strobel's journey from spiritual skepticism to a profound faith in the God who has etched His indelible signature upon each galaxy and every living cell.
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.
"A Christian learns even more reasons to believe! I'll try not to be long-winded with this review. In short, it was fantastic! My only complaint? That it wasn't 4 hours long! Seriously! It was so interesting I didn't want it to end. I'm a lifelong Christian, and since I've become a mother, I've spent even more time studying scripture and considering spiritual matters so that I can best guide my son to serve God. This DVD taught me things I didn't know! I love learning new, historically relevant facts about the Bible and the world as it was in Biblical times. Hearing all of the collaborating evidence as it related to the life, teachings, crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ strengthened my own faith even further! Thank you, Lee Strobel, for telling your story! You've done a great job on this."

"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."

"Thought Provoking and Personal. This video is different because of the personal story of Lee Strobel, former atheist and writer for the Chicago Tribune. It starts with Lee's decision for atheism finalized by the Miller experiment in which amino acids were created in a lab. In a section called "the Negative Evidence", Lee debunks this and other faulty experiments and evidences that appear to support Darwinism. Lee finds that the reasons that he became an atheist do not stand on a solid foundation."

"I wish more people would watch it! The Case for a Creator was easy to follow. Chronologically flowed well and statements and theories were well substantiated and well documented."
