What to know

critics consensus

The Case for Christ shouldn't be dismissed, but like many faith-based productions, it's better at preaching to the choir than reaching the unconverted. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

In 1980, Lee Strobel's (Mike Vogel) award-winning, investigative reporting earns him a promotion to legal editor at the Chicago Tribune. Things at home aren't going nearly as well. His wife Leslie's (Erika Christensen) newfound faith in Christ compels Lee to utilize his journalistic and legal training to try and disprove the claims of Christianity, pitting his resolute atheism against her growing faith.

Critic Reviews for The Case for Christ

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (16) | Rotten (11)

  • It's clearly intended as a teaching text, though its evidence-based defence of faith ... is a straw-man argument unlikely to have nonbelievers queuing up to be baptised.

    September 17, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • This is profoundly silly Christian recruitment propaganda masquerading as newsroom drama.

    September 14, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • On the whole, the film does exactly what is expected from it, but fails to ultimately convince and is eventually let down by a poorly executed screenplay and an almost ludicrous storyline.

    September 14, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • For a Christian film, this is decently acted, but with the sentimentality cranked up, it drags on for what feels like eternity.

    September 14, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The Case For Christ is pretty slow going, tedious rather than offensive.

    April 9, 2017 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • Based on Lee Strobel's best-selling book, this religious-themed drama earns points for proselytizing in more narratively compelling form than usual.
