Leslie Strobel was the impetus and the inspiration behind her husband Lee Strobel’s bestselling book, The Case for Christ. An atheist like her husband, Leslie slowly came to believe the claims of Christianity as she saw faith at work in the lives of others and in the circumstances of her life. When Lee set out to disprove her newfound faith, the research led him on an unexpected journey. Their story now is on the big screen in the feature film THE CASE FOR CHRIST. With Lee, Leslie is the co-author of the book Spiritual Mismatch.
