After a successful digital debut of The Case For Christ: Songs Inspired By the Original Motion Picture album, DREAM Records has partnered with Pure Flix Home Entertainment to release the CD as part of DVD release in all Christian Book retailers along with 11 exclusive behind the scene videos from the artists on the album to all retailers.
The album features unreleased music from a wide range of worship teams including the powerful, "The Evidence" by New Hope Oahu, the hopeful, "Believe" by Seacoast Worship, the infectious, "Our Great God" by NewSpring Worship, the beautiful, "Your Love Is Chasing Me" by Soulfire Revolution, the glorious "I Believe" by Dove Award winning singer-songwriter Cindy Cruse Ratcliff, and many more.
In April, DREAM Records released the songs inspired album as an accompaniment to the national theatrical release. The digital album received critical praise from NewReleaseToday.com, Hallels.com, and CCM Magazine and the movie earned a "fresh" rating from critics at Rotten Tomatoes and a rare A+ from Cinemascore, the industry standard for measuring audience opinion of a film. The film also received the K-LOVE Fan Award for Film/Television Impact.
"The Case For Christ" is based on the 1980's true story of a hard-driving journalist and atheist, Lee Strobel, who is exactly where he expected to be at work: on top. His award-winning investigative reporting has earned him a promotion to legal editor at the Chicago Tribune. But things aren't going nearly as well at home, where his wife Leslie's newfound Christian faith put a strain on their marriage. Lee sets a plan to use his investigative skills to disprove Christianity, which goes against everything Lee believes-or doesn't believe-as an avowed atheist.
Utilizing his journalistic and legal training, Lee begins a quest to debunk the claims of Christianity in order to save his crumbling marriage. Chasing down the biggest story of his career, Lee comes face-to-face with unexpected results that could change everything he knows to be true.
Based on Lee Strobel's award-winning bestselling book and starring Mike Vogel, Erika Christensen, Academy Award-winner Faye Dunaway and Academy Award-nominee Robert Forster. "The Case For Christ" was applauded by critics including Christianity Today, which declared that it "stands among the best films produced yet by the Christian film industry."
"The Case For Christ" is rated PG and directed by Jon Gunn ("Do You Believe?") from a script by Brian Bird ("Captive," "Touched By An Angel"). The film is produced by Michael Scott, David A.R. White, Russell Wolfe, Elizabeth Hatcher-Travis, Brittany Lefebvre, Karl Horstmann and Alysoun Wolfe.
