The Case for Christ pits an atheist husband’s way of thinking against his wife’s newfound belief in Christ. The atheist, Lee Strobel, is an award-winning journalist. His wife’s burgeoning faith in Christ forces Lee to utilise his investigative skills to try and disprove the claims of Christianity.
Strobel examines as much of the historical record he can find and interviews many people, including a medical doctor and an agnostic psychologist during his two-year investigating into the life of Jesus and the historical accuracy of the gospels. This work brings him to a growing faith in Christ. Instead of debunking Jesus’ resurrection, Strobel finally embraces the faith, exclaiming at one point: ‘All right, God, you win!’
