The Case for Christ (movie)

I watched The Case for Christ. It is based on the book by Lee Strobel. Yes, I’m reading the book. I should be finished reading it by next weekend. This movie was supposed to be free on Crackle, but when I clicked to watch it, Crackle deleted the movie. I did watch the movie though. It has L. Scott Caldwell, Erika Christensen, Mike Vogel, Rus Blackwell, and Renell Gibbs in it.

Note there are some differences between the book and this movie. The book was written much later than the movie implies and the first case he covered he received a phone call from an informant than discovering the evidence himself.

This movie tells the family side of the story more than the book does. In this movie, Lee’s daughter chokes on hard candy at a restaurant and a nurse was there and saved her life. The nurse tells Lee’s wife that God told her to come to that restaurant. Lee’s wife then goes to church with the nurse and gives her life to Jesus. Lee doesn’t like it so he goes on a mission to prove her wrong and he ends up being a Christian in the process.

I liked this movie. There is a documentary that is closer to the book and I may watch it after I finish reading the book. Next week I’m watching An Acceptable Loss.
