Lee Strobel: The Last Bible Verse I Read as an Atheist

As part of our 20th anniversary celebration, we talked to some of today’s leading Christian writers and thinkers to find out about the state of Bible engagement in 2013. One of the first people we turned to was Lee Strobel, the author of The Case for Christ and countless other books exploring and defending the Bible.

We asked Lee a simple question: What Bible verse is on your mind in 2013? Watch the video below for his answer.

The verse Lee mentions is John 1:12:

But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name…. — John 1:12 (NIV)

Lee is speaking specifically as a former atheist who came to that verse and was profoundly challenged and changed by it. Do you have a similar experience to share? What verse is on your mind today, this week, this year?

Stay tuned as we talk to more Christian writers and pastors about this and other questions throughout our 20th anniversary celebration!
