This 60-minute program is a compelling adaptation of Lee Strobel's personal journey from atheism to faith in God… a journey in search of the truth about intelligent design in the universe.
During his academic years, Lee became convinced that God was outmoded, a belief that colored his ensuing career as an award-winning journalist at the Chicago Tribune . Science made the idea of a Creator irrelevant… or so Strobel thought.
“My road to atheism was paved by science… but, ironically, so was my later journey to God.” – Lee Strobel
Has science discovered God? At the very least, it's giving faith an immense boost as new findings emerge about the incredible complexity of life and our universe. In The Case for a Creator DVD, Strobel reexamines the theories that once led him away from God.
Highlighted by spectacular computer animation, The Case for a Creator DVD is a remarkable film in which you'll encounter the mind-stretching discoveries from cosmology, cellular biology, DNA research, astronomy, physics, and human consciousness.
The Case for a Creator DVD is produced by Illustra Media, the same studio team that released The Privileged Planet, Unlocking the Mystery of Life , Where Does the Evidence Lead and The Prophecies of the Passion .
More than 40 minutes of extra bonus features.
Lee Strobel, with a journalism degree from the University of Missouri and a Master of Studies in Law degree from Yale Law School, was the award-winning legal editor of the Chicago Tribune and a spiritual skeptic until 1981. His books include four Gold Medallion winners and the 2005 Christian Book of the Year (coauthored with Garry Poole). He and his wife live in California.
"Interesting, from an Engineering Perspective. As an engineer, this DVD really clicked with me. (Lee) Strobel found experts who really approached nature from the same perspective an engineer would if he were given a product and told to reverse engineer it to see how it worked. Indeed, just the fact that such analytical techniques even hold up, let alone produce results that fall so cleanly into established technological paradigms, should be an earth-shaking finding."

"Very informative and scientific. This video is very thorough in discussing several different scientific thoughts on the origin of creation. It also has good commentary from Lee (Strobel) about why he went on his search. I would recommend this to middle schoolers on up. But if you show it to teens, do not show it all at once because it is pretty in depth in terms of scientific discussion."

"Incredible! Great investigative writer, intriguing topic in DVD format, highly suggested for intelligent, open minded adults and teens."

"Thought Provoking and Personal. This video is different because of the personal story of Lee Strobel, former atheist and writer for the Chicago Tribune. It starts with Lee's decision for atheism finalized by the Miller experiment in which amino acids were created in a lab. In a section called "the Negative Evidence", Lee debunks this and other faulty experiments and evidences that appear to support Darwinism. Lee finds that the reasons that he became an atheist do not stand on a solid foundation."

"For what it's worth, I have both a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in biology, and have been a professional scientist for almost 15 years. I was not really raised a Christian, and was taught to be a Darwinian evolutionist/atheist in the secular universities that I attended (all scientific theories were to be questioned... except for Darwin's - his theory was off-limits). I now fully understand that Darwin's theory has been "protected" from rigorous scientific scrutiny - because if it were not, it would completely collapse due to lack scientific support for its most basic and fundamental principles. Your productions have played a major role in my understanding of this issue, and my personal journey in discovering the TRUE "origin of species". A weak, pseudo-science challenge to evolution would not have convinced me - but, the science behind your productions is first-rate, and would absolutely survive rigorous scrutiny (it definitely survived mine). Please don't underestimate the impact of your work. You guys are changing minds and hearts. Thank you for what you're doing, and please keep the productions coming...I look forward to adding the next one to my collection. "

"I wish more people would watch it! Case for a Creator was easy to follow. Chronologically flowed well and statements and theories were well substantiated and well documented."
