I interviewed Lee Strobel today. You know him. He was the Atheist-turned-Christian who was the former award-winning legal editor of The Chicago Tribune. He's now written about twenty books, is a NY Times best selling author and and has been interviewed on numerous national television programs, including ABC’s 20/20, Fox News, and CNN. Lee is the guy who wrote, "The Case for Faith", "The Case for Christ" etc. He was educated at Yale Law School and after a nearly 2 year investigation for the evidence for Jesus, he committed his life to Christ. I have him coming out here to speak in September for a weekend and today I was interviewing him for my "First Friday" Connection broadcast. That's the once a month friday radio slot when I talk to different leaders or contributors to the Christian Community. I was able to get a clip of Lee telling me about how his book, "The Case for Christ" was instrumental in bringing Evil Kinevil to faith in Jesus Christ--I mean a radical conversion. This is one of the coolest things I've ever heard. Until today, I had no idea that this was the case. Lee told me that at his baptism which he made very public about 700 people came to faith in Christ.
