Lee Strobel’s The Case for a Creator Debuts on Film

A film version of Lee Strobel’s book The Case for a Creator has been released by Illustra Media.  The book, third in a series of best-sellers by Lee Strobel (The Case for Christ, The Case for Faith) describes Strobel’s own journey from atheism to Christianity and how Darwinian had evolution played a big part in his youthful rejection of religion.  Strobel interviews various scientists and theologians who explain the evidence for intelligent design from the cosmic to the atomic, from galaxies to cells.
    Incorporating footage from Illustra’s highly-successful ID films Unlocking the Mystery of Life and The Privileged Planet along with new interviews, animations and subject matter (such as the fossil record) The Case for a Creator packages a wide variety of creation evidences into a one-hour package centered around Strobel’s spiritual quest.  One reviewer wrote, “This DVD is excellent.  It is just as high quality, if not more so, than the other Illustra productions.  It basically smashes Unlocking, Icons, and Privileged Planet into one disc.  It’s a wonderful resource.”  Access Research Network says, “As with previous Illustra Media documentaries, this one is chock full of stunning graphics, amazing animations, and a theater-worthy soundtrack.”
    The DVD also contains bonus features with lists of additional resources.  Of special interest is a series of frequently-asked questions, answered in short interviews by by the scientists and theologians seen in the main film.  Click here for the producer’s film page.

This DVD makes a convenient witnessing tool.  The prior three films mentioned above are all still excellent and go into more detail in their respective subjects.  But for people not willing to watch three hours of video, The Case for a Creator brings most of the best arguments together into a single, attractively-produced hour-long package.
    Though some of the animations will look familiar, the film includes new animations of ATP synthase and other molecular machines, an enhanced look at the universe-generator from The Privileged Planet, a dramatic visualization of the precision of the gravitational constant, and more.  Viewers will get a kick out of the “monkey-typewriter” segment.  The story line revolving around a true testimony of a skeptic investigating the case for a Creator may make this film resonate with more viewers than one strictly about science.  Anything Illustra produces carries with it a reputation of production quality and content credibility unsurpassed in the field of creation/ID graphical media.  Get a quantity of these DVDs and start handing them out.
