'The Case For Christ' Movie Makes It Into Top 10 In US Box Office

Christian movie 'The Case for Christ' made it into the top 10 at the box office over the weekend. The film tells the story of atheist-turned-Christian-apologist Lee Strobel, reports Christian Headlines. The film charted at number 10, grossing $3,900,000. It also reportedly was shown in 1,174 movie theaters nationwide, according to BoxOfficeMojo.com. This was just the first weekend of the movie’s release.

“My wife was agnostic. Then one day, through the influence of a friend and a church, she met Jesus,” Strobel wrote at Fox News. “The first word to come into my mind: divorce. As portrayed in The Case for Christ, the forthcoming movie based on our story, I set out to disprove her beliefs and rescue her from the cult of Christianity.

"After nearly two years, the scales tipped,” he continues. Having encountered the persuasive evidence for Christianity, I concluded it would have required more faith to maintain my atheism than to become a believer.”
