The Case For Christ: Facts and Faith.
Today, Lee Strobel is well known for being a writer on Christian apologetics. But in the 1970s, he was
an investigative reporter and an avowed atheist. When his wife became Christian, it threw is marriage into turmoil. He felt as if there was now another man in their relationship – Jesus.
(Here, “apologetics” means a reasoned defence or justification of a theory or doctrine.)
Then, Lee was an investigate journalist, so he decided to disprove Christianity by applying his journalistic skills to the gospels. As he followed up leads, talked to experts, and researched history, however, he grew increasingly at odds with what he was discovering. An an atheist he wished to reject the findings, but as a journalist he found himself compelled to accept that the evidence indeed confirms what is written in the gospels.
This month, we look at the book
Last month, the Men’s Supper Club went to the movies. This month, we’ll be looking at the book, The Case For Christ. The book goes into more depth with the findings from Lee’s research and how they provide evidence-based support to the beliefs of the Christian faith.
It is suggested (but not required!) that, before we meet, you spend some time with the book, The Case For Christ, or failing that, take in the movie.
