Lee Strobel

Atheist-turned-Christian Lee Strobel, the former award-winning legal editor of The Chicago Tribune, is a New York Times best-selling author of more than two dozen books and has been interviewed on numerous national television networks, including ABC, PBS, CNN, and Fox.

Described by the Washington Post as "one of the evangelical community's most popular apologists," Lee shared the Christian Book of the Year award in 2005 for a curriculum he co-authored about The Passion of the Christ. He won Gold Medallions for his books The Case for Christ, The Case for Faith, The Case for a Creator, and Inside the Mind of Unchurched Harry and Mary. His latest book is The Case for the Real Jesus.

Lee was educated at the University of Missouri (Bachelor of Journalism degree) and Yale Law School (Master of Studies in Law degree). He was a journalist for fourteen years at The Chicago Tribune and other newspapers, winning Illinois' top honors for investigative reporting (which he shared with a team he led) and public service journalism from United Press International.

Based on his extensive writing and research, Southern Evangelical Seminary honored him in 2007 by conferring a Doctor of Divinity degree.

A former teaching pastor at two of America's largest churches - Willow Creek Community Church and Saddleback Valley Community Church - Lee has also taught First Amendment law at Roosevelt University. Lee and Leslie have been married for thirty-six years and live in Southern California. Their daughter Alison is a novelist and their son Kyle is pursuing a doctorate in theology at the University of Aberdeen in Scotland.

Lee's free e-newsletter, "Investigating Faith," is available at www.LeeStrobel.com.

    It is one thing to not have Robert A.Schuller on Hour Of Power. Now it seems you have also taken away the benedtction at the end of the service. Please at least let us have that as we close our hour and start another stressfull week. I pray each day to try to understand all the changes. God Bless.
