A good movie and true story
Lee Strobel wrote the book that is the basis for this movie quite a while back. He was a journalist who thoroughly researched his stories before publishing them, and the movie includes a couple of stories he broke which i remember from years ago. He set out to discredit Jesus as either a mythical figure or at least an overblown hero. It’s very interesting to see how thorough his research was and the techniques he used to come to his conclusion about a man and the events surrounding him as documented not only in the Bible, but many secular, historical writings. The movie has a good story line including a family struggle, and does not come off at all as a documentary.
This is an excellent actual account of an atheist investigative reporter who sets out to disprove the resurrection of Jesus. If you're just curious about Jesus or want facts to what you already believe, this is a thoughtful, well-documented DVD.
Lee Strobel works as a legal reporter for the Chicago Tribune, and as such, he believes in nothing he cannot verify. When his wife has an encounter with Jesus Christ, he works to disprove that Jesus is the Son of God. In this true story, he finds it takes more faith to believe Jesus is not God’s Son than it takes to believe in Him.
Bought the movie to gift to a church in South America while on a Mission Trip since the movie has a Spanish language track and/or subtitles. I thought the story would be an encouragement for women of faith in the same way that the churches of South America enjoyed the dvd, War Room
I would recommend this to a friend

Faith Strengthening Biopic
Seeing the book come to life of Lee Strobel's journey to faith was well done. I had read the book years ago and seeing the movie was a nice cherry on top. Of course the book is more detailed however the movie hits the heart with some solid acting by the cast. Happy to add it to my movie collection.
