You want to see a movie that has good acting, beautiful direction, an awesome storyline and a message that is outstanding? Then you need to see The Case for Christ, based on the book by author and former journalist Lee Strobel.
If you read the book then you know the struggle Lee went through when his atheist wife became a Christian. The movie stresses the fact that both Strobels went into their marriage as unbelievers but the journey to belief for Leslie Strobel (Erika Christensen) started with one event that started her thinking, "What if?"
The movie expertly shows us how Leslie's journey lead to Lee (Mike Vogel) using his investigative journalism skills to prove to his wife that she was believing in a lie. So he tracks down all kinds of professional people from all over the world, from doctors, to archeologists to psychologists to ask for evidence on whether or not Jesus died on the cross. And he is overwhelmed by the evidence. While seeking answers to that Lee is also investigating an incident where a cop is shot. He breaks the news on what he thinks is an incredible scoop. I won't tell you anymore than that because I don't want to spoil it, but let's just say the director of this movie did an awesome job making the evidence for truth and why it's sometimes hard to find, quite clear.
If you are wondering if Jesus is real and you need evidence to believe, go see the Case for Christ. You won't be disappointed.
