Lee Strobel joins HBU apologetics department


HOUSTON (BP) — Author and apologist Lee Strobel has joined Houston Baptist University’s School of Christian Thought in the department of apologetics.

Strobel, an award-winning former legal editor of The Chicago Tribune, became a Christian in 1981 after a nearly two-year investigation of the evidence for Jesus. Described in The Washington Post as “one of the evangelical community’s most popular apologists,” Strobel won Gold Medallions for his books “The Case for Christ,” “The Case for Faith,” and “The Case for a Creator,” all of which have been made into documentaries distributed by Lionsgate.
