Lee Strobel’s Hope for Apologetics in a ‘Post-Truth’ Culture [Podcast]
As ‘The Case for Christ’ heads to the big screen, the journalist-turned-evangelist reflects on what's changed—and what's stayed the same—about defending the faith.
Nearly two decades have passed since Lee Strobel’s The Case for Christ first hit bookstore shelves. Written as a response to the former journalist’s conversion from atheism, Strobel’s investigation into the truth claims of Christianity remains a landmark work of apologetics, often mentioned alongside mainstays such as C. S. Lewis’s Mere Christianity. And while the culture has changed much since 1998, Strobel insists that using reason to defend—and, more importantly, to share—the gospel remains as important as ever.
Later this week, the film adaptation of The Case for Christ, which tells the story behind Strobel’s investigation and resulting conversion, will premiere at theaters across the country.
