As a Christian, I am of course biased towards the message of the film. Ultimately, it is one man's journey from sceptic to believer, when he discovers through evidence and testimony that God is real. Thankfully, the film is not as cheesy as other Christian movies. It paints a convincing picture of the testament of faith, with insight into real-world thought into why Christ isn't the dead guy others say He Is. Any sceptic watching the film may scoff - Lee Strobel did himself - but for any unbelievers considering the film, go in with an open heart. It's not a perfect film, it is overlong, but it paints a convincing picture that may hopefully win over a few converts. I have met sceptics, I was one myself, but I know of the power that can change a person's mind and heart. May the same be true of your life.

So, in the end Strobel couldn´t disprove the basis for the christian faith therefore he drops everything, accepts it as fact, and converts. I wouldn´t go as far as saying this story is propaganda but it surely left me with an aftertaste. Yes, I am an atheist but I have no problem with believers. To each his own. But I have never in my life tried to convince someone who believes that he is wrong. The movie itself was OK, that is it is well made. The side story with the innocent cop shooter could have been another movie itself. Vogel did a good job while the others had not many screen time to shine.

The Case for Christ is the fascinating true story about how an atheist’s quest to disprove Christianity led him to the Lord. When his wife converts to Christianity after their daughter is saved from choking to death investigative journalist Lee Strobel attempts to break her free by disproving Christ’s resurrection, but he soon finds it to be harder to do than he expected. Erika Christensen and Mike Vogel are surprisingly good as Leslie and Lee Strobel, and the rest of the cast is pretty decent as well. And the writing does an impressive job at explaining the evidence in support of Christ’s resurrection without getting too preachy or coming off as information dumps. Additionally, the film never loses sight of the character drama; staying focused on the Strobels and how they both struggle with the changes that Leslie’s spiritual awakening has brought on. It’s a little cheesy and melodramatic at times, but overall The Case for Christ is an inspirational film about the power of faith and prayer.

The protagonist of this movie briefly mentions the Jonestown massacre, which is ironic considering he's the one who ends up drinking the proverbial Kool-Aid.

The Case for Christ follows the hero as he transitions from a quote-unquote investigative reporter to a Christian pastor — not a big los More
