Editorial Reviews

Based on the best-selling book by the same name, a seasoned journalist chases down the biggest story in history. 

The Project: Determine if there's credible evidence that Jesus of Nazareth really is the Son of God. The Reporter: Lee Strobel, educated at Yale Law School, award-winning former legal editor of the Chicago Tribune-with a background of atheism. The Experts: A dozen scholars, with doctorates from Cambridge, Princeton, Brandeis, and other top-flight institutions, who are recognized authorities on Jesus. The Story: Retracing his own spiritual journey, Strobel cross-examines the experts with tough, point-blank questions: How reliable is the New Testament? Does evidence exist for Jesus outside the Bible? Is there any reason to believe the resurrection was an actual historical event?

This remarkable documentary  is like reading a captivating, fast-paced novel. But it's not fiction. It's a riveting quest for the truth about history's most compelling figure. What will your verdict be in The Case for Christ?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Introduction to Christian Apologetics March 16, 2008
Format:DVD
Lee Strobel has done the Christian community-and indeed, the world, a service with this DVD. I was extremely impressed with both the content and the production values. The video is a great introduction to Christian apologetics both for the ordinary "man or woman in the pew" and the "ordinary skeptic."

To claims that the film is biased, of course it is. It's an apologetic documentary after all. But it is nevertheless a fairly balanced overview, or summary, of the evidence for the truth claims of the NT. This documentary isn't any more biased than the TV documentaries that usually air on the cable channels (A&E, THC, DSV, TLC, etc.) at Christmas and Easter which are typically aimed at a popular audience and biased against the truth claims of the NT and which usually cater to the sensational and bizarre. Strobel's DVD should serve as a nice counterpoint to all the popular sensationalist documentaries out there. True, the film doesn't get too technical, however perhaps it really doesn't need to? Anyone interested in delving deeper can check out the books listed in the bibliography, many of them written by the very scholars interviewed in the film.

Also interesting are the special features video interviews with many of the scholars interviewed in the film giving personal testimonials about how their work as scholars has increased their faith.

I think every church would benefit by screening this DVD for its members.

4.0 out of 5 stars A logical look at the Gospels January 18, 2008
Format:DVD
Lee Strobel is a well-educated legal journalist who sets out to prove that Christianity is false. He admittedly feels threatened when his wife becomes a Christian and says that he is afraid of losing her. Strobel constructs a method of investigating the case for Christ just as he would in a court of law. He gathers evidence from Christian scholars and puts hard questions to them as to the validity of the Bible and Jesus' claims of being the Messiah. The viewer is taken on the step-by-step journey which Lee Strobel made which converted him from atheism to Christianity. This kind of presentation is very appealing to those of a logical and systematic nature. It is made even more powerful by the fact that Lee Strobel's wife relates what she went through while her husband was on his quest for truth. The one important point which he failed to make is that no one can absolutely prove that Jesus is who is said he was. That would negate the need for faith which is an essential element for a believer, and which is what Jesus called us to.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quality Technical Presentation, but Lacks Depth November 1, 2007
By K.H.
Format:DVD
This DVD is technically better than most Christian multimedia products trying to prove that Christ is the Son of God. It does not suffer from the quality of most subculture Christian DVDs; however, this DVD is more about Lee's conversion story than it is an in-depth examination of the evidence. While I understand the need to provide a quick "reasons to believe" for the general public, it would have been nice if this DVD had a real strong 2-3 hour featurette examining the evidence piece by piece.

As a conversion story, this DVD works well enough. Both Lee and his wife are featured and many different scholars appear for quick explanations on certain topics that deal with the resurrection and reliability of the Gospels, etc. There are philosophers William Lane Craig and J.P. Moreland as well as recognized N.T scholars Craig Blomberg and world famous N.T. Wright who make appearances arguing or providing evidence on certain subjects. All in all, this is a good DVD for quick information about certain topics regarding Christianity, but by not delving deeper into the material, it could have the rather opposite intent by insulting either Christians who are looking for a resource to help them "provide an answer" or to those seeking for answers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Investigating the claims of Christ August 2, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD is just over an hour of entry-level apologetics (defense of the faith). If you were looking into the claims of Christ, this would be a great start. Lee Strobel was a former journalist for the Chicago Tribune that clamed atheism. Once his wife became a Christian, it set him into a two-year investigation of the claims of Christ. This DVD is the Readers Digest version of that investigation. His entire investigation is recorded in his book "The Case for Christ."

If you are already a Christian, you will find this video to be a great start in bolstering your apologetic. It touches on areas of manuscript evidence, extra biblical evidence, eyewitness accounts, predictive prophecy and the resurrection of Christ. This is a very high quality film, just as another one of Lee's films, "The Case for a Creator."

This video kept my ten year old entertained, even though many parts were over her head. However, it was certainly too much for my seven year old, but he did sit through it. Any documentary on biblical evidence that can keep a seven year old entertained, says a lot for the quality. I recommend viewing this video; it is completely something that I would be comfortable passing out to Christians and non-Christians alike.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just an observation November 6, 2009
Format:DVD
Several detractors complain that the author's presentation is one-sided. What do you expect when you attend a trial or a debate? Do the attorneys or the debaters each present the case for both sides? Of course not! The author simply presents his point of view and backs it with the available evidence. The DVD would seem a good tool for believers to use to organize what they already know to be the basis for their beliefs. You want to refute the evidence? Do the research yourself and write your opposing viewpoint. (BUT REMEMBER: Since you complained about the one-sidedness, be sure to present, equally, both sides of the argument. Show 'em how you think it should be done.)
