From Lee Strobel’s award-winning and best-selling book, the feature film The Case for Christ premieres in wide release on Friday, April 7.
One day before the film opens nationwide — on April 6 only — a special Fathom event features Lee and Leslie Strobel in a post-premiere Q&A.
The Case for Christ film features Mike Vogel (THE HELP), Erika Christensen (Parenthood), Academy AwardÆ winner Faye Dunaway and Academy AwardÆ nominee Robert Forster.
In the movie, a hard-driving journalist, Lee Strobel was exactly where he expected to be at work: on top. His award-winning investigative reporting recently earned him a promotion to legal editor at the Chicago Tribune. But things weren’t going nearly as well at home. His wife Leslie’s newfound faith in Christ went against everything Lee believed — or didn’t believe — as an avowed atheist.
Utilizing his journalistic and legal training, Lee begins a quest to debunk the claims of Christianity in order to save his crumbling marriage. Chasing down the biggest story of his career, Lee comes face-to-face with unexpected results that could change everything he knows to be true.
Thursday, April 6 – The one-night Fathom Live Event is at 8 p.m. ET, 7 p.m. CT, 6 p.m. MT, and tape-delayed to 8 p.m. PT. Event attendees get an advance showing of the film before the wide release, as well as exclusive access to a Q&A with Lee and Leslie Strobel, live streamed to Fathom theaters nationwide. The Q&A is moderated by NFL Quarterback Kirk Cousins, and the panel also includes star Mike Vogel (Lee Strobel), director Jonathan Gunn, and screenwriter Brian Bird. In addition, attendees will receive a free download of the first two chapters of The Case for Christ book.
