The Case for Christ: From Atheism to Christianity

  March 30, 2018 • Download this article (PDF) In The Case for Christ, a DVD movie released recently, former award-winning Chicago Tribune journalist Lee Strobel tells of how he turned away from atheism to the Christian faith through his research to debunk the resurrection of Christ.

  Last Sunday, Easter Sunday, I attached this article, condensed from “The Resurrection of Jesus Christ” by Dr. Jack L. Arnold of Third Millennium Ministries, as a bulletin insert. It is one thing to reject the resurrection fact; it is quite another to try to explain away the biblical record.

If the ladies made…
