Bethel to Host FREE Viewing of “The Case for Christ” Movie

Public Relations

Bethel College will host a FREE viewing of “The Case for Christ” movie, based on the life of New York Times best-selling author Lee Strobel, Saturday, April 14, in the Everest-Rohrer Auditorium on Bethel’s campus. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and the movie will begin at 6 p.m. Complimentary popcorn will be provided and guests will have the chance to win one of four tickets to an exclusive Meet and Greet with Strobel, when he visits campus May 12. Copies of “The Case for Christ” book will also be available at the movie night. Though the event is free, registration is required.

The evening is being held in preparation for the Bethel College Day of Giving/Give Back Gala – May 12, in the Wiekamp Athletic Center on Bethel’s campus, where keynote speaker Strobel will share the message, “For Such a Time as This: Standing Up for Biblical Values.” The purpose of the event is to raise money for Bethel’s General Scholarship Fund, which supports student scholarships and areas of greatest need. Tickets to the gala are available now for $75/person (with $50 of each ticket counting as a tax-deductible gift to Bethel College).

An atheist-turned-Christian, Strobel is the award-winning former legal editor of The Chicago Tribune and a New York Times best-selling author of more than 20 books. After investigating the evidence for Jesus, Strobel became a Christian in 1981. He subsequently became a teaching pastor at two of America’s most influential churches and hosted the national network TV program, “Faith Under Fire.” In 2017, Strobel’s spiritual journey was depicted in a major motion picture, “The Case for Christ,” which was the No. 3 faith-based movie of the year at the box office. Strobel has won national awards for his books, “The Case for Christ,” “The Case for Faith,” “The Case for a Creator” and “The Case for Grace.” The Christian Post named Strobel one of the top seven evangelical leaders who made an impact in 2017.
