Lee Strobel has made The Case for Christ, The Case for Faith, and even The Case for Christmas.
At the North American Christian Convention, the popular Christian speaker and apologetics author made the case for Christian churches and churches of Christ.
“This movement of churches is nothing short of miraculous,” he said the day before taking the NACC stage.
“God is doing amazing things. I love their pastors—they’ve got huge hearts, they love the lost, they’re strategic, they’re prayerful, they’re culturally relevant, they’re scriptural, they’re entrepreneurial.”
Strobel has appeared at several Christian churches across the country.
“You look at the top 20 churches in America that are growing, and they are all over that,” he said.
A new book coming next year, The Case for Grace, features the story of Jud Wilhite, former drug addict who is now senior pastor of the movement’s largest church, Central Christian in Henderson, Nevada.
“We’re seeing life change, we’re seeing great vision for lost people and a heart to reach them with the gospel. One of the things I’m most enthusiastic about on the church scene is this fellowship of churches,” Strobel said.
“I speak at a lot of ’em, and I’ve never gone to one that I haven’t walked away and I say, God is at work in this place.”
