A journalist investigates scientific evidence that points toward God

As a high school freshman, Lee Strobel became convinced that God did not exist. Only the hard, empirical evidence of science could be trusted -- and it appeared to point to a universe created by purely materialistic processes. Time, chance, and Darwinian evolution.

This atheistic worldview deeply influenced Strobel's academic years and early career as an award-winning journalist for the Chicago Tribune. Then, in 1980, his wife's conversion to Christianity led him on an intensive search for the truth about God. Not surprisingly, he began with science.

What do the discoveries of modern biology, physics, cosmology, and astronomy really tell us about the origin of life and the universe? When objectively considered, does contemporary scientific evidence point toward or away from a supernatural Creator? Strobel interviewed scientists and scholars from a wide range of disciplines for the answers.

Based upon a New York Times best-seller, THE CASE FOR A CREATOR is a remarkable film about Lee Strobel's journey from spiritual skepticism to a profound faith in the God who has etched His indelible signature upon every galaxy and living cell. The Creator now revealed by 21st century science.

A very well-done documentary on the strong scientific evidence that points to a Creator, narrated by a former evolutionist.

The video approaches the subject from an Intelligent Design standpoint rather than a strictly Christian perspective, but there are still a number of explicit references to the God of the Bible. This DVD clearly shows how creation, from the magnitude of the cosmos to the intricate functions of cells, point clearly to our wise and poweful God.

I recommend this DVD, not just for its evangelistic and apologetic uses, but also as a way to astonish yourself how amazing our Creator really is.

Don't miss the DVD's bonus features. There's a good "Q & A" section in there and two excellent short presentations on "How Did Life Begin?" and "The Machinery of Life"
