The Case for the Creator is a deep look into the evidence for Intelligent design. "My road to atheism was paved by science... but, ironically, so was my later journey to God." -Lee Strobelhttp://www.leestrobel.com/~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Lee Strobel - Christian Speaker - Atheistic Journalist-turned-Apologist
Atheist-turned-Christian Lee Strobel, the former award-winning legal editor of The Chicago Tribune, is a New York Times best-selling author of more than twenty books and served as host of a national network TV program that featured debates on topics of faith.
Described in the Washington Post as “one of the evangelical community’s most popular apologists,” Lee won Gold Medallions for his books The Case for Christ, The Case for Faith and The Case for a Creator. He shared the Christian Book of the Year award in 2005 for a curriculum he co-authored with Garry Poole.
Lee’s latest books include The Case for the Real Jesus; The Unexpected Adventure (co-authored with Mark Mittelberg); and The Case for Christ Study Bible, which includes hundreds of notes and articles. His first novel is a legal thriller called The Ambition.
Lee was educated at the University of Missouri (Bachelor of Journalism degree, 1974) and Yale Law School (Master of Studies in Law degree, 1979). He was a professional journalist for 14 years at The Chicago Tribune and other newspapers, winning Illinois’ top honors for investigative reporting (which he shared with a team he led) and public service journalism from United Press International.
After a nearly two-year investigation of the evidence for Jesus, Lee received Christ as his Lord and Savior in 1981. He joined the staff of Willow Creek Community Church in South Barrington, IL, in 1987, and later became a teaching pastor there. He joined Saddleback Valley Community Church in Lake Forest, CA, as a teaching pastor in 2000. He left Saddleback’s staff in mid-2002 to focus on writing.
Lee has been interviewed on numerous national TV networks, including ABC, Fox, PBS and CNN. For two seasons, he was executive producer and host of the weekly television program Faith Under Fire.
Lee also is co-author of the Becoming a Contagious Christian course, which has trained more than a million Christians in evangelism, and his articles have been published in a variety of magazines, including Discipleship Journal, Marriage Partnership, The Christian Research Journal, and Decision. He has appeared on such national radio programs as The Bible Answer Man and Focus on the Family. In addition, he taught First Amendment law at Roosevelt University.
In recognition of his extensive research for his books, Southern Evangelical Seminary honored Lee with the conferring of a Doctor of Divinity degree in 2007.
Lee and his wife Leslie have been married for 38 years and live in Colorado. Their daughter, Alison, is a novelist (her latest: The Heart of Memory) and their son, Kyle, holds two master’s degrees from Talbot School of Theology and a PhD in theology from the University of Aberdeen in Scotland.

For three days in July 1863, two great armies clashed on the fields of southeast Pennsylvania in what would become the most pivotal battle of the American Civil War. The commanders of these forces would become household names, but the Battle of Gettysburg was not won or lost by high-ranking generals. It was decided by the more than 158,000 soldiers on the front line of the battle. These men came from different backgrounds, and all fought for different reasons. What united them, Union or Confederate, was their shared commitment and belief in their cause.
Gettysburg follows the stories of eight of these men as they put their lives on the line in a battle that would decide the ultimate fate of the United States of America.
