Lee Strobel's best–selling book, The Case for Christ, was recently released as a feature–length DVD documentary, produced by La Mirada Films and distributed by Lionsgate Films.
The film features interviews with 10 leading biblical scholars, two of which are Biola professors: J.P. Moreland and William Lane Craig. On May 27, Strobel discussed the book and film at Biola. The 1,500 in attendance in Chase gymnasium all went home with a free copy of the DVD.
The 71–minute film examines the historical accuracy of the Gospels, the personal claims of Jesus and his resurrection from the dead.
A film version of Strobel’s follow-up book, The Case for Faith, was slated for release in September, and will also prominently feature several Biola professors. Another of Strobel’s books, 2004’s The Case for a Creator, was made into a DVD in 2006.
Strobel is slated to be the commencement speaker this December.
