Reviews - What do customers think about Case For Christ (The Film) (Not Available-Out?
A Case for Christ can be made Sep 29, 2008
I just read a couple of the negative reviews and was extremely disappointed in their shortsightedness. We shared this video in our church's men's ministry meetings and enjoyed it immensely. It is refreshing to see someone else's journey of discovery as Lee Strobel tried to sort things out in his thinking. We overcome the enemy (satanic forces) in part by the word of our testimony (Revelation 12:11). One of the greatest proofs of what Christ accomplished by His death, burial, and resurrection is in how the lives of the early disciples and apostles were affected. It is a very convincing argument that no one would allow himself to be tortured and put to death for something that he, or she, does not believe in. So, yes, it is extremely convincing that all of the disciples who were closest to Jesus would be totally changed human beings after His resurrection, and go boldly proclaiming His resurrection to their deaths, and that includes the later apostle Paul, and the martyr Stephen. Those of us who have experienced the living Christ, as Lee has, are bolstered by his testimony. Having experienced supernatural revelations from God and supernatural healings, I would, of course, never be able to deny that He is the living Christ. And remember that in Romans 1:18-20 and in Psalm 19:1-4 we are told that there is no one on earth who can truly deny who God is except through the darkness and deceit that they personaly allow to engulf them because God has revealed Himself and His characteristics through the creation around us even into our innermost being ("He has manifested it IN us.") Buy the video; it will enlarge your thinking. Alan T.
Optimistically Disappointed Feb 27, 2008
I watched this, with what turned out to be, docupropaganda, with initial optimism truly hoping for an "investigative" approach into the subject matter of "Christ." However, I could only conclude that the entire objective here was that of an opportunistic propaganda. I was very disappointed in this piece of work attempting to be passed off as, and to the unsuspecting purchaser, as a real investigation approach into the existence of CHRIST. It evidentially became clear that this project had absolutely nothing to do with investigative reporting. I suppose I should have first taken a look at just who the producers were - La Mirada films, to really know what this piece would no doubt be about.
This was nothing more than an opportunity for the newly converted to "spread the word" and to somehow depict Mr. Strobel's born again belief basis as that of investigative proof. One might even theorize that what this piece originated via Lee's wife demanding that Lee 'believe or else' . . . it's that pathetic. If you're looking for real evidentiary proof and/or investigative reporting into this subject matter, see - ZEITGEIST THE MOVIE where Lee might want to consider and re-think just exactly what an investigative-journalistic approach entails!
intellectually deceptive Feb 23, 2008
Strobel utterly failed in what he set out to do. He did not objectively examine the case for Christ. His evidence is thoroughly one-sided. He failed to look at all sides of the issues. He was not a good journalist. He found scholars who told him what he wanted to hear and ignored any voices on the other side.
To take just one example, there are many scholars (and Christians) who do not believe Matthew, Mark, Luke and John wrote the four gospels. There are good reasons for their skepticism. Yet Strobel presents the traditional viewpoint as if it were objective fact. This occurs again and again in the film.
I rejoice that Strobel found the Lord through this journalistic exercise. His testimony is a powerful one.
Yet, the basic premise of the DVD is flawed. God is not known by logic and objectivity, but by the spirit's power. Rational arguments can be made all day long, but God has made foolish the wisdom of this world. (1 Cor. 1:18-25). Nicodemus came to Jesus with logic, Jesus answered with metaphor (John 3). In this post-modern world, there is no such thing as one objective truth.
**Two Thumbs Up** Feb 19, 2008
Great addition to your Christian book collection. Long story short, two thumbs up! Great gift idea.
One of the BEST witnessing tools EVER! Feb 15, 2008
Kudos to Lee Stobel for making this into a DVD. I had read the book and loved it, but putting this information on DVD, makes this a powerful witnessing tool. This will reach many people that would not otherwise sit and read the book. I first rented it from my local Blockbuster, and watched it twice. I then looked for it on this site and ordered my own. I shared it with a couple friends, and ended up ordering 12 more to give to ladies in my Bible study group. I love way he presented the facts, and the information he used to back it up. I thank God for leading Lee Strobel to the truth, and for using him to reach millions of people.
GREAT! ...if you are a hearing person! Feb 11, 2008
I have never seen this movie, and unfortunately I never will! I loved Strobel's book and wanted to share this film with my deaf girlfriend who is presently becoming a Christian! However, this release is not closed captioned or subtitled! And as if that was not bad enough, to add insult to injury, closed captioning IS AVAILIBLE if you wanted to buy the "special edition," which is only available BY THE CASE (!) from the distributor!!!!! So, they spent the money to have the closed captioning done, but then choose not to release it to the general public!!!! I asked, and even pleaded with, the customer service department of the DVD production company to sell me a copy of the "special edition," I even offered to pay more for it, but they told me, "Sorry sir, you have to order a case of them. They are not available individually!" This is so, so, so insulting that I can almost not believe it! The deaf CAN watch this movie, it is possible, it is just that the production company refuses to let them without paying for a whole case!!!! PLEASE! I BEG YOU! Do not buy this DVD and call the production company and tell them how upset you are that they would do something like this! In fact, do not buy ANYTHING by them! I thought that the idea of such books and films was to spread the word of Christ! Well, I guess they only find the hearing worthy of the Word! Oh, or the RICH deaf community are fine, because they can just buy a case and recycle the rest!
