Knoxville, Tenn. – Once an award-winning legal editor and investigative reporter with the Chicago Tribune, Lee Strobel, a famed Atheist-turned-Christian and now one of the evangelical community’s “most popular apologists,” is coming to Knoxville to headline a LIVE, faith-based event called The Case for Christ – sponsored by Maryville Christian School and Feed Your Faith.
The Case for Christ will be held at Wallace Memorial Baptist Church at 701 Merchants Drive on Friday, May 10 at 8 p.m. and will feature Strobel’s compelling investigation of the evidence that Jesus Christ is really the Son of God.
“I’ve cross-examined dozens of experts in multiple fields and disciplines searching for answers to questions that curious Christians have been asking for years,” said Strobel. “How reliable is the New Testament? Does evidence for Jesus exist outside of the Bible? And, is there any reason to believe the resurrection was an actual event? All I can tell you is that I’m now a believer.”
After a nearly two-year investigation of the evidence for Jesus Christ, Strobel became a Christian in 1981. He is a New York Times best-selling author of more than 20 books and has been interviewed on numerous national TV programs, including ABC, Fox, PBS, and CNN. Lee shared the Christian Book of the Year award in 2005 for a curriculum he co-authored with Garry Poole about the movie The Passion of the Christ. He also won Gold Medallions for his books The Case for Christ, The Case for Faith, and The Case for a Creator, all of which have been made into documentaries distributed by Lionsgate.
As a featured speaker, Strobel has a unique way of naturally and effectively speaking with others about Jesus. Strobel’s testimony retraces his journey from the newsroom to the pulpit as he learned to make Christ a way of life. His unique experiences and relative approach captivates audiences of all ages and walks of life.
The Case for Christ is a one-night show only. Tickets range from $20 to $35 each and are available as reserved seats or general admission for singles, couples and groups of 10 or more. Doors will open at 7 p.m. and the event begins starts at 8 p.m. According to conference organizers, tickets are still available, but if past Feed Your Faith shows are any indication, this could prove to be a sellout.
Additionally, prior to the event, attendees are invited to meet Strobel beginning at 6:30 p.m. during a meet and greet VIP dinner also at Wallace Memorial Baptist Church. This exclusive VIP dinner will benefit the Maryville Christian School Scholarship Fund.
Established on May 29, 1993, in Maryville, Tenn., Maryville Christian School (MCS) seeks to produce young men and women trained in the ways of God and who will subsequently devote themselves to lives of service to Him. Because of growing economic challenges, more and more MCS families need tuition assistance and therefore, in 2011 MCS created an annual “Bella Sera” fundraising event in which proceeds benefit the scholarship fund. The Strobel VIP dinner will serve as a 2013 Bella Sera event. The 2013 financial goal for the scholarship fund is $75,000.
VIP tickets are $250 per person and include a full-course meal prepared by Chef Tony of First Fruits Catering, the opportunity to meet Strobel and receive a signed copy of one of his books and reserved premium seating for The Case for Christ event. To purchase VIP tickets, call 865-268-9146.
